The Voice of Mario Reflects on His Career with Nintendo

(VIDEO) Voice Artist Behind the Super Mario Reflects on His Career in Interview

Charles Martinet - Mario

Charles Martinet, voice of Mario from the iconic Super Mario series. Martinet auditioned for the part in 1990 for an Italian plumber from Brooklyn. He improvised on the spot and it was an instant hit. Martinet not only voiced Mario, but he also created the voices for Wario, Luigi and even Donkey Kong.

The Super Mario legacy was the voice of childhood for kids across the world and Martinet’s interview is definitely worth a watch. It is really interesting to hear about Martinet’s association with the character and what each character means to him personally. Not to mention its just cool to see the face behind the tiny plumber with a mustache. Woo Hoo! It’s a-Me Mario!
