[[Manga/DeathNote Take Brad Swaile...]]''and [[MemeticMutation DESCRIBE HIM!!!]]''

Basically Bradley Swaile (born December 26, 1976) is the Canadian equivalent to Creator/MamoruMiyano, seeing as how this guy usually ends up dubbing Miyano's roles. He was at first [[PigeonholedVoiceActor pigeonholed]] into playing either [[KidHero young male leads]] or [[IdiotHero Idiot Heroes]]... [[note]]Note that he did have a strong following in UsefulNotes/{{Vancouver}} and parts of UsefulNotes/{{Canada}}.[[/note]]

...And then came ''Manga/DeathNote''.

In ''Death Note'' he [[PlayingAgainstType finally broke out of his pigeonhole]] by playing MagnificentBastard Light Yagami. Many fans consider his performance to be the best of his entire career. Swaile instantly became [[MemeticMutation memetically popular]], joining fellow VA Creator/ScottMcNeil. He introduced us to the wonders of [[MundaneMadeAwesome taking potato chips... and]] '''[[MundaneMadeAwesome EATING THEM]]''', and terrified everyone with his [[EvilLaugh epic maniacal laughter]] in the final episode.

You can also hear him in nearly EVERY ''Franchise/{{Gundam}}'' series, usually as a Gundam pilot. He pretty much just uses the same voice as he did for Quatre each time as well, making him that much easier to find.
