Brendan O'Brien (born May 9, 1962, in Hollywood, California) is an American actor and voice actor.

Early life and career[edit]

O'Brien is the son of actors Edmond O'Brien and Olga San Juan.[1]

He is best known for providing voices for the Crash Bandicoot video games during the Naughty Dog years. O'Brien got the role of Crash Bandicoot after Joe Pearson suggested that he call Jason Rubin (who was looking for a voice artist). After going to the studio for the call (where his parents used to work), he got the role.[2]

The recordings that O'Brien did for Crash Bandicoot were done in an intimate setting at the Alfred Hitchcock Theater.[2]

O'Brien also performed additional voices for the animated series adaptation of Spawn and Ralph Bakshi's Spicy City.

Personal life[edit]

O'Brien has been married to filmmaker Ingrid K. Behrens since September 9, 2000.[citation needed]
