Actor Yuri Lowenthal moves from animation to video games to live-action projects with ease. The "Prince of Persia” voice actor today guest-stars on "Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles” in the first part of a two-part arc.
"The character I’m playing is Christopher Garland,” Lowenthal said in a phone interview. "He’s a sonar man on a submarine. He’s also a member of the Resistance.”
The Resistance is the human resistance to Skynet in the future world on "Terminator.” Lowenthal’s two-part arc includes the episodes "Today’s The Day Part 1,” airing tonight, with the second part scheduled for next week.
"It’s in many ways a self-contained story within that world, that plays more like a movie than a TV show,” Lowenthal said. "We felt like this particular crew formed a strong bond and had something really good going on.”
Lowenthal said he enjoyed the action-packed pace. "Stuff like this is why I got into acting in the first place: running around on a submarine in the future, fighting evil robots with a plasma rifle.”
Lowenthal’s also a popular video game voice actor, who has portrayed the title role in "Prince of Persia: Sands of Time,” as well as parts in "Halo 2,” "Medal of Honor 2: Rising Sun” and "Rave Master.
