Opening day for Yu-Gi-Oh! The Dark Side of Dimensions is here! You already know that you’ll get to hear the original Yu-Gi-Oh! anime voice actors, like Dan Green and Eric Stuart, reprising their roles on the big screen. And you may also know that actors who have appeared in other Yu-Gi-Oh! spin-offs, like Daniel J. Edwards and Billy Bob Thompson, among others, have become a part of the Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters family in this movie. But did you know that a few actors are entering the Yu-Gi-Oh! world for the very first time with their parts in The Dark Side of Dimensions? Who are they and who do they play?
Actor and singer Laurie Hymes is the voice of Sera, a young girl with close ties to Aigami. Laurie appeared in the latest Pokemon movie, Volcanion and the Mechanical Marvel, as Prince Rali. Later this year, she will be in the new Pokemon Sun & Moon anime as Lillie, one of the series’ lead characters.
Up-and-coming actor Tamir Cousins is the voice of Mani, a mysterious acquaintance of Aigami’s. Yu-Gi-Oh! DSoD is Tamir’s first professional movie role. On Facebook, he talks about how much he loved Yu-Gi-Oh! when he was younger and credits his teacher and fellow actor Erica Schroeder for helping him land the role.
Yu-Gi-Oh! The Dark Side of Dimensions Voice-Over Contest Winners
Yu-Gi-Oh! DSoD has the distinction of casting six extras in the movie at voice-over contests held at three events in late 2016. Like Laurie and Tamir, these participants are now forever members of the Yu-Gi-Oh! family with their roles in this movie. Here are the winners, their parts, and their lines.
