Voices behind the characters: Chris Collins (Aka. Chris Latta)

One of the most interesting voices behind the characters was Chris Collins who changed his acting name to his birth name of Chris Latta (he was adopted by his stepfather) due to another Screen Actors Guild actor was named Chris Collins. His career was fairly short lasting from the early 80’s until shortly before his death in 1994 but his mark on the voice acting scene has forever been made.
