Background and career
Delk learned a knack of acting from his mother, who read bedtime stories to him and had done all voices of characters. After getting education at University of St. Andrews, he worked as a disc jockey and later got in radio, and then into commercials. In the 1970s he worked with George Lucas for first time, playing a minor role in More American Graffiti for Lucasfilm. He voiced the medical droid 2-1B in The Empire Strikes Back, and later played roles for LucasFilm in Star Wars: Ewoks (the voice of Wicket in the second season) and in Howard the Duck. Then, in 1992, he got up with LucasArts, voicing the "talkie" version of Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis. He continued working for LucasArts as in-house actor, voicing many roles in their games, although players know Delk most for playing the talking skull Murray from Monkey Island series of quests. Delk tried to make character little more comical than he was and tried to give him a bit of himself. The players liked Murray, and he turned up as frequent comic relief in the series.
Delk lives in San Francisco Bay Area. His wife is writer and producer Karen Jones Delk.
