The REAL “Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog” Tails voice actor speaks up!

Back in December of 2013, fans of the early 90′s cartoon Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog were saddened to learn that actor Christopher Evan Welch, the man credited as voicing Miles “Tails” Prower, had passed away. However, soon after the news hit, several fans noted a discrepancy with the actor’s age and the obvious child-like voice of Tails. Christopher Evan Welch was 28 in 1993, there’s no way he could have pulled off such a voice. I decided to find out if Evan Welch was indeed the voice actor of Tails, and after a few e-mails with friends of the actor and a call to Evan Welch’s agent in New York, I came to the conclusion that Christopher Evan Welch did NOT voice Tails. But if he didn’t, then that meant another actor did, and it was possible that the REAL Christopher Welch was still out there.

    How ironic that the one actor Tails’ VA gets the most screentime with is the one he never /actually met./

    It annoys me when things like this happen; voice actors not interacting makes for crappier voice acting.
