THE HAPPY MAN BEHIND THE VOICE OF SUPER MARIO
This interview is with the happy and positive voice behind Nintendo’s Super Mario. Generations of us have loved Super Mario. In this video interview he even joyously narrates some of Mario’s classic lines as he plays along with the video games.
Charles Martinet has voiced this title character of Nintendo's flagship video game franchise since 1990, and he also voices related characters such as Baby Mario, Luigi, Baby Luigi, Wario, Waluigi, and Toadsworth.
“The voice is always in my head. In fact I aspire to be more like Mario. What could be better than rescuing and falling in love with a princess, right? Someone who faces every challenge in life with a cheerful Wahoo! In London a bike messenger stopped me and said ‘You’re the bloke who does Mario’ on an escalator. So naturally I go ‘Wahooooo’ all the way up the stairs.” Charles Martinet
