Welcome to our next super late episode from A-Kon 27 in Dallas, Texas!
Austin Tindle is a actor and voice actor in the Dallas, Texas. Not only is he a voice actor, but as we learned at the convention that he is a theater actor (though he has been too busy for theater lately) with a passion for Shakespeare. Seriously, if you have a chance to see Austin’s 18+ panel “Raunchy Shakespeare“, you’ll definitely walk away with a newfound appreciation for Shakespeare’s works. And by appreciation, I mean that Shakespeare liked to talk in puns and about sex all the time just like we do. It was definitely an eye opener that makes Shakespeare a lot more fun and interesting.
Though his last name is spelled slightly different, Austin Tindle is related to William Tyndale, who was burned at the stake for translating the Bible into English for the Tyndale Bible. The Tyndale Bible was used as the basis for the King James Bible as well as helping to solidify modern English for Shakespeare and all English speakers everywhere! So in a way, we should thank Austin for giving us modern English and Shakespeare.
Yes, I do realize this is a bit of a stretch but the connection is very interesting.
Austin Tindle is most well known for playing Karma Akabane in Assassination Classroom, Kaneki Ken in Tokyo Ghoul and Tokyo Ghoul√A, Obi in Snow White with the Red Hair, Accelerator in A Certain Magical Index, and Ichirohiko in The Boy and the Beast among many others.
