The actors who give the Disney cartoon Phineas and Ferb their voices, have been spotted outside the animation world.
As fans of animation no doubt have experienced before, very often you’ll be watching a show and there’s just something about a voice that strikes you as familiar. You perhaps can’t quite place it but then all of a sudden, a light bulb goes off. Well brace yourself for a few of those moments if you happen to watch shows like Game of Thrones and The Walking Dead.
Last we talked about Phineas and Ferb it was their Mission Marvel mashup special and while the cartoon is awesome and fun, today it’s all about the actors behind the animated characters. Two of the main characters, Ferb (who really doesn’t talk all that much to begin with) and Candace, have been spotted in other shows and it was recently announced that Phineas has found a new gig as well.
Thomas Brodie-Sangster is already recognizable as a member of the Games of Thrones cast as Jojen Reed, friend to Bran Stark. He is not however one that you’d immediately recognize from the cartoon by his voice, as he perhaps has the least number of lines of a main character in the history of television with a whopping seventeen. However, the actor has had quite the “child actor” career starring in both Love, Actually and Nanny McPhee. In addition to Game of Thrones, Brodie-Sangster is starring in the upcoming post-apocalyptic thriller based on James Dashner’s novel, The Maze Runner.
Ashley Tisdale is also making the move from child star to bonafide actor, of course with Phineas and Ferb perhaps serving as a bridge. She voices the extremely high strung and always frantic sister, Candace. Tisdale took at turn this past season of Sons of Anarchy in a somewhat against type role of a prostitute.
The newest break out from Phineas and Ferb is Phineas himself, Vincent Martella. Martella talked with Entertainment Weekly and told them the news of his casting on AMC’s, The Walking Dead.
I was actually a massive fan of The Walking Dead, I’ve watched it since its premiere. It’s been such a cool thing for me to be a part of the show that I’m such a big fan of, because I don’t watch too much television religiously, like every single week. But this is one of those shows, so I’m really lucky.
No word yet who Martella will play in the zombie drama but after building a being a cattle driver and building a circus in his backyard, walkers shouldn’t be too much of a problem.
