Uupdate: Following new information released by Welch’s family and acting agency, it turns out that he was not the voice actor for Tails or had anything to do with the Sonic cartoon show.
Original Story: It has been brought to our attention that AoStH voice actor Christopher Evan Welch, who played the role of Tails has passed away. His agency Paradigm confirmed that Welch was filming for HBO in LA when he died early Monday morning in hospital, he is believed to have been 48.
Many early fans will have memories of his voice acting career as Tails, in the television series “Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog.” However, he was also a very well respected actor, having roles on Broadway and film credits that include Spielberg’s “The War of the Worlds” and Woody Allen’s “Vicky Cristina Barcelona.”
Our thoughts and condolences are with Christopher’s family at this difficult time.
