Corey Burton is a voice actor who has been involved in radio dramas since his teenage years.


In the late 1970s, Burton first got involved with the Star Wars universe when he voiced Luke Skywalker for a 1979 Disney Read-Along book/record retelling Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope. A year later, he provided the voice for Derek Klivian for Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back. During this session, Mark Hamill asked him to sign the Star Wars Read-Along record as "Luke 2."

Years later, Burton returned to the Star Wars universe to play Count Dooku / Darth Tyranus in various LucasArts projects due to being considered Christopher Lee's "audio double." He also voiced San Hill in the 2003 micro-series, Ziro the Hutt in the 2008 movie, Cad Bane in the subsequent animated series, and many different characters in various projects.

He is a fan of James Earl Jones and claims to enjoy playing villains.
