He formerly served on the board of directors for the New Westminster-based Urban Academy along with his wife, Laura Drummond, also a voice artist.[2] Usually working with Ocean Productions, he tends to be cast as an antagonist. Notable credits include Streaky in Krypto the Superdog, Ryuk in Death Note, Zechs Merquise in Mobile Suit Gundam Wing, and Vegeta in Dragon Ball Z.

Career[edit]

Drummond was born in Salmon Arm, British Columbia. A graduate of the acclaimed Studio 58, he started out as a theatre actor, but eventually found himself moving into voice acting full-time.[3] Based out of Vancouver, BC, he works on various animated programs.

Most well known for his role as Vegeta, Yajirobe, and Vegito in the Ocean Studios English dub of the anime series Dragon Ball Z, Drummond tends to be cast as either an impassive warrior (Andrew Waltfeld), or a kind-hearted father-figure (Reverend Malchio). Lately, he has also played the role of the cowardly Yuna Roma Seiran in Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Destiny as well as Ryuk in Death Note. He has landed prominent roles in various anime such as Renkotsu in InuYasha, and Gundam Wing as Zechs Merquise. Brian has also appeared in Da Vinci's Inquest in minor background roles.

He was originally cast as Cyclops, the lead male protagonist of X-Men: Evolution. He recorded the very first episode of the show, but the series was eventually re-cast with Kirby Morrow in the role.[4]

He recently participated in FUNimation's English dub as a cloned version of Vegeta for Dragon Ball Super, where Drummond notably worked alongside his FUNimation counterpart Christopher Sabat who provided Vegeta's voice for the FUNimation version of the Dragon Ball English dub.[5]

In 2006-2008, He voiced Ork Warboss Gorgutz in the video game Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War, and several other expansion packs under the Dawn of War title.

Personal life[edit]

He is married to Laura Drummond and has a son and two daughters, Aidan, Brynna (pronounced BRIN-ah[6]), and Ashlyn,[7] who have also begun to follow in their father's voice-over work. His daughter Brynna currently voices Babs Seed, the cousin of Apple Bloom and her siblings, on the television series My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, a show which Drummond also appears in.
