Grant James wasn’t just an amazing actor- though he was- he knew how to connect with people. I first met him when I was nervously awaiting my first VO audition. He tapped me on the knee, jabbed a finger in my face, and said, “Don’t let them forget whose audition this is.” RIP

It breaks my heart to learn Grant James passed away… I first heard Grant as Zeff in One Piece and still is my favourite role of his, but I’ve loved him in every show he’s popped up. #RIP

Hearing through the grapevine that Grant James has passed away. While I’m sure a ton of people will remember him best as Zeff in One Piece, I’ll always think back to one of the first places I heard him – Fungus in Final Fantasy Unlimited.

Replying to @AtYes2Ats This break my heart. Grant James was a bona fide treasure. His voice and reputation preceded him by light years; yet even so, absolutely nothing could prepare you for the reality of his magical, larger-than-life presence.
