Samuel Brent Oscar Riegel also known as Sam Regal, or Jack Lingo, (born October 9, 1976) is an American voice actor, writer and director who appears in cartoons, anime and video game series.


He voiced Donatello in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2003 series, and Riven in the Nickelodeon series Winx Club. He began his career as a child actor in theater in Virginia, where he landed the role of Gavroche in the musical Les Misérables at the Kennedy Center. He went on to tour with the show in 26 cities across America, eventually moving to New York City to perform in Broadway and off-Broadway shows. In 1994, he graduated from the Professional Children's School on the Upper West Side of Manhattan and enrolled at the University of Virginia, where he was a member of the award-winning a cappella group The Academical Village People. Riegel is voice director for the hit Disney television cartoon series Sofia the First, which stars Ariel Winter. He also voice-directs Disney's Wander Over Yonder, where he plays one of the show's characters, "Emperor Awesome", and has also written the episode "The Bad Hatter". Riegel hosts the All Work No Play podcast with fellow voice actor Liam O'Brien. After completing college, he returned to New York City to pursue his voice acting career. He lives and works in Los Angeles, CA.

September 11, 2001 experience[edit]

On September 11, 2001, Riegel and his wife witnessed the attacks on the World Trade Center.

Riegel captured video footage that was featured in several documentaries.[1]
