  1. Met Charles yesterday at GAME in Birmingham. They always say never meet your heroes, but Charles couldn’t have been a nicer guy! He signed everything I put in front of him, was funny, and even gave me tips on how to get into voice acting. If I were able to go to London and meet him again, I would. Definitely recommend going if you can.
