Samuel Brent Oscar Riegel (born October 9, 1976), occasionally known as Sam Regal or Jack Lingo, is an American voice actor, director, and writer. He is a regular cast member of the web series Critical Role, in which he and other fellow voice actors play Dungeons & Dragons.

Early life[edit]

Samuel Brent Oscar Riegel was born in Washington, D.C. on October 9, 1976. He is the brother of actress Eden Riegel and the half-brother of filmmaker Tatiana S. Riegel. His mother, Lenore, is married to author Jerome Charyn.[1]

Career[edit]

Riegel is best known for voicing Donatello in the 2003 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series and Phoenix Wright in the Ace Attorney games. He is a cast member of the web series Critical Role, in which he and other voice actors play Dungeons & Dragons.[2][3][4] In 2018, he received the Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Directing in an Animated Program for his work on Danger & Eggs.[5] He hosts the All Work No Play podcast with his Critical Role co-star Liam O'Brien.[6]

Personal life[edit]

Riegel lives in Los Angeles with his wife, Vietnamese-American cinematographer Quyen Tran.[7][8] They have a daughter and son together.[9]

On September 11, 2001, Riegel and Tran witnessed the 9/11 attacks.[10] They were caught in the dust cloud formed by the collapse of the South Tower, but eventually escaped to Battery Park, where they witnessed the collapse of the North Tower; Riegel captured video footage that has since been featured in several documentaries.[7]
