Texas-born Aaron Dismuke started with a few small parts (in FRUITS BASKET and KIDDY GRADE), courtesy of his cousin, Funimation ADR director Justin Cook. But it wasn’t long before the budding voice actor showed real talent, and quickly catapulted to a critical leading role in FULLMETAL ALCHEMIST as Alphonse Elric . It’s a feat all the more impressive when you do the math and realize that he was only 11 years old when he started voicing Alphonse, and that he did most of that work while speaking into a big metal bowl. Aaron resumed the role for the movie FULLMETAL ALCHEMIST: CONQUEROR OF SHAMBALLA, as well as several video games based on the series. Aaron (now 17 years old) can also be heard as Ion Fortuna in TRINITY BLOOD, young Ginko in MUSHI-SHI and Yasuchika in OURAN HIGH SCHOOL HOST CLUB. Most recently, Aaron joined FULLMETAL ALCHEMIST- BROTHERHOOD as young Van Hohenhiem and plays Ouri Kagami in SHIKABANE HIME.
