Tom Kane Forced To Retire Due To Stroke. Famed Voice of Yoda, Professor Utonium and more

Months ago we reported the sad news of Tom Kane's stroke that may force him into early retirement as a voice actor. Today we confirm that will be the case.

Months ago I shared the sad story that legendary voice actor Tom Kane may be forced into retirement due to a stroke but it was unclear where his condition was and whether it was possible he could recover enough that he could return to voice work. Today though his daughter Sam updated fans to his condition on the actor's facebook to confirm the sad news that Tom indeed has to retire. 

Tom of course is known for playing Yoda, Yularen and the Narrator in Clone Wars, Professor Utonium and Him in the Powerpuff Girls, Magneto in Wolverine and the X-Men, Professor X in Marvel Ultimate Alliance, Monkey Fist in Kim Possible, he's the voice of the Monorail annoucement at Epcot among so many other works. 

We send our well wishes to Tom and his family at this difficult time and thank him for all his years of service.
