Voice Actor Spotlight: Zeno Robinson

One of the greatest upcoming voice-over artists in the animation industry is the multi-talented, wide-ranged Zeno Robinson. Not only does Zeno voice Victor Stone aka Cyborg in Young Justice: Outsiders, but he also portrays an array of various characters ranging from incredibly hilarious to spine-chillingly terrifying. The variety of fantastic roles he’s done so far is nothing short of sensational. Today, we look at some of Zeno Robinson’s most memorable roles outside of Young Justice: Outsiders.

  1. Big City Greens - Starting out with a more comedic, light-hearted series, Big City Greens centers around the adventures of Cricket Green and his family moving from the country to the big city. Over the duration of the show, Cricket is able to strike up many friendships with the city’s citizens despite his idealistic, country-boy nature. One of the main characters he befriends is Remy, a socially awkward, but incredibly endearing kid around the same age of Cricket voiced by Zeno himself. Zeno is able to bring a goofy, lovable energy to the character and round out the cast of this upbeat animated series that both children and adults can fall in love with.
  2. Ben 10: Alien Force/Ben 10: Ultimate Alien - The Cartoon Network series about a young man who can change into various unique aliens with the help of a special device called the Omnitrix, Zeno is able to lend his many talents to this series as Alan Albright. Starting out as a shy, inexperienced kid, Alan was able to grow into his newfound abilities which include the control of the element of fire as a member of the hair-raising Heatblast species. With a character that can be compared to that of a superhero, Zeno masterfully portrays both sides of being a young, unassuming human being and an extraterrestrial being with magnificent powers. A wonderfully well-made series with elements of the superhero and science fiction genres sprinkled in, the Ben 10 franchise is so creative and fast-paced that it can invest anyone with the unique characters and captivating stories.
  3. My Hero Academia - A popular anime/manga about the human race with superpowers manifesting inside them called “quirks”, My Hero Academia is another imaginative, popular franchise that Zeno is a part of. Zeno voices two very interesting characters in the franchise, Deidoro Sakaki and Hawks. Sakaki is a villainous character who has the “quirk” to cause anyone who approaches him to lose their sense of balance and coordination. Hawks is a more heroic character with the “quirk” of “Fierce Wings", which allows him to control the feathers of gigantic wings that grow out of his back with his mind. A pleaser for both fans of the superhero genre and of anime culture, My Hero Academia is perfect for those who wish to find something that can enthrall them with an assembly of distinctive characters, rich, fascinating story arcs, and action sequences that can get nearly anyone’s blood running.
  4. LEGO Star Wars: All-Stars - One of the most well-known science fiction franchises of all-time, LEGO Star Wars: All-Stars is an animated series on Disney XD that features LEGO versions of the many heroes and villains in the Star Wars galaxy. Zeno lends his voice to the show as a young Lando Calrissian, a charismatic rebel who is an old friend and ally to the roguish smuggler, Han Solo. Zeno brings a youthful, but witty and charming energy to his portrayal of Lando heavily reminiscent of Donald Glover’s take on the character’s early days in Solo: A Star Wars Story. Another remarkable addition to the Star Wars universe, LEGO Star Wars: All-Stars is comical, adventure-heavy, and an all-around thrill-ride for both casual viewers and die-hard fans of the iconic science fiction phenomenon.
