Mark Hildreth is a Canadian actor and musician. He is best known for his voiceover work, particularly as the voice of Heero Yuy in Mobile Suit Gundam Wing
and Sten in Dragon Age: Origins
Mark Hildreth and his work provide examples of:
- Breakup Song: "Sitting Beside."
- Lyric Swap: "Love Will Make It Certain" switches from the title line to "love will make me certain" towards the end of at least one version.
- Misblamed: Certain fans often badmouth Mark Hildreth for portraying Heero as robotic rather than subdued. At conventions, Hildreth has said he was told to use a rather flat voice tone by the cast director because Heero was supposed to be very, very emotionally repressed.
- Name's the Same: Shares the exact same name with retired American professional wrestler Mark Hildreth, who is best known to WCW fans as Van Hammer.
- Non-Appearing Title: The title of "Sitting Beside" describes the metaphor used in the song (sitting next to a riverbank and watching your true love drift away), but the phrase itself never appears in the lyrics.
- Romance on the Set: Met his girlfriend, Kristin Kreuk, when they were filming the Earthsea miniseries.
- Single Stanza Song: "Every Heart Has a Winter" is one stanza, followed by a musical interlude, followed by the same stanza repeated again.
- Surreal Music Video: The video for "Siddhartha."
