Famed ‘Star Wars’ voice actor Tom Kane unable to speak after stroke


#Actor #Tom #Kane — who’s lent his iconic voice to a plethora of projects from “Star #Wars” to “Archer” — tragically suffered a stroke in #November that rendered him largely unable to talk.

#Kane’s daughter #Sam described the 58-year-old voiceover artist’s condition on his #Facebook page #Wednesday.

“About two months ago he had a left side stroke that gave him right sided weakness and damage to the speech center of his brain,” she wrote. “This means right now he cannot efficiently communicate verbally, nor read or spell.”

#She continued, “He is still competent and very much himself, but can only get out a few words right now.”

#Unfortunately, while #Tom is undergoing therapy in his hometown of #Kansas #City, doctors warn that “he may not do voiceovers again,” per the post.

#Nonetheless #Sam claims that her dad “remains in good spirits and his extreme stubbornness has helped him already show improvements in speech.”

A professional voiceover artist since age 15, #Tom is perhaps best known for playing #Jedi #Master #Yoda and #Admiral #Yularen in “Star #Wars: The #Clone #Wars,” as well as the 2008 movie. #He also lent his voice to #Admiral #Ackbar in “Star #Wars #Episode VIII: The #Last #Jedi.”

#Outside of “Star #Wars,” #Tom has had both starring and guest roles in “Archer,” “The #Powerpuff #Girls,” “Scooby #Doo,” “Shrek 3,” “Robot #Chicken,” “Kim #Possible,” “The #Avengers,” “Foster’s #Home for #Imaginary #Friends,” “Iron #Man,” “The #Wild #Thornberrys” and dozens of other projects.
