Dubbing actress Krystal LaPorte reported Tuesday that voice actor Chris Ayres died on October 18th. He was 56 years old.
In November 2017, the nonprofit Anime Twin Cities Inc. launched a fundraiser for Ayres’ medical expenses. Ayres was diagnosed with end-stage COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease). The fundraiser aimed to raise $ 25,000 primarily to support medical procedures and care. The fundraising at the time said Ayres needed a double lung transplant to survive, along with two additional surgeries.
Ayres then reported in November 2019 that he had received a lung transplant a month earlier after being on a transplant list for nearly two years. The Oni-Con Convention launched another fundraiser for Ayres in July 2020 for his continued medication and treatment, including unexpected follow-up surgeries.
Ayres was born in Richmond in 1965 and began professional acting at the age of six. As an actor, he appeared on both Broadway and Off-Broadway. He previously said he got into the anime thanks to his younger brother, his voice actor Greg Ayres.
Chris Ayres is best known for setting the character Frieza in the Dragon Ball Z series (and Dragon Ball Super and Dragon Ball Super: Broly) and has characters in Gantz, Tamako Market, Phi-Brain – Puzzle of God, Gintama : The. spoken movie, panty & stocking with garter belt, Sengoku Basara, Initial D and Tears to Tiara. He has also served as ADR director and screenwriter for numerous English dubs.
Ayres has been a mainstay at many US anime conventions and has hosted panels such as Mock Combat for Cosplay. He also served as a stage play director and taught stage combat groups in middle schools, high schools, and colleges.
