Voice actor Adam Behr has one of the most unique voices in the industry and a rich cultural heritage. Adam was born and raised in Johannesburg, South Africa and partly in Lobatse, Botswana before moving to Canada’s west coast initially to pursue his passion for motion picture effects work, and later adding voice acting to his pursuits. Presently, Adam stars in recurring roles on a top animated series, enjoys narration work, and is involved with three international animated films. One of the most interesting aspects of Adam’s career is his involvement in the exciting world of movie trailers.
