Early life, family and education

Greg was raised in Richmond alongside his brother Christopher, by their parents about whom nothing’s known, as Greg respects their privacy; it’s said that his father was a businessman, and that his mother was a school teacher. Christopher is also an actor, and has played and voiced characters in more than 200 movies and TV series.

Greg watched a lot of TV while he was growing up, and was four years old when his parents noticed that he was good at impersonating the voices of people whom he’d seen on TV. They thus took him to an audition, and Greg was only five when he launched his career, by voicing Seiji in the 1973 episode “Yomigaere Goddo Fenikkusu” of the English version of the Japanese action adventure series “Gatchaman” (original “Kagaku ninja tai Gatchaman”).

He then spent the following decade focused on his education, and didn’t work on his career at all.
