Tyler Walker is an ADR director, line producer, script writer and voice actor for FUNimation Entertainment. A native of East Texas, he grew up spending equal time playing in the woods, playing Atari, and watching cartoons like Scooby Doo, Superfriends, Star Blazers, and Battle of the Planets. After graduating from the University of North Texas with a BA in Radio, Television, and Film, he spent time playing in bands and eventually started working as an ADR engineer and production assistant at FUNimation in 2002. A bit of trivia: His former band, The Pointy Shoe Factory, had three songs featured in Dragon Ball Z Movie Eight: Broly, The Legendary Super Saiyan.
Since then, he has worked as ADR director on nearly one thousand episodes of such series as Baccano!, Toriko, Ghost Hunt, Basilisk, Black Cat, Samurai Warriors, Phantom: Requiem for the Phantom, Hell Girl, Is This a Zombie, Kado: The Right Answer, Tales of Zestiria, 91 Days, Dies Irae and King’s Game. Currently, he’s directing two simuldubs; Hakyu Hoshin Engi and Basilisk: Ouka Ninja Scroll. In addition to directing and producing, he has also written hundreds of scripts for titles such as Fairy Tail, One Piece, Bamboo Blade, Phantom: Requiem for the Phantom, Hero Tales, Shangri-La, Samurai Warriors, and both seasons of Is This A Zombie. When he’s not at the FUNimation studios, Tyler plays drums and produces music for his bands, Wirewings and 100’s. His wife, Heather, has appeared in several titles like Maken-Ki, Shangri-la, Fairy Tail, Toriko, and Overlord as well. Somehow they still find time to go play in the woods with their three dogs.
Heather Walker loves the freaks, the geeks, and the oddballs. From birds and giant rats, to tortured mystical children and sexy nurses, she has played a wide variety of roles in her time as a voice actress. Whether she is screaming her head off for an entire scene or being innocently naughty, Heather loves extreme characters. Some of her roles include Hiruko from Shangri-La, Aki from Maken-Ki, the misunderstood villain Mary Hughes in Fairy Tail Rina in King’s Game, “Wise King of the Forest” Hamsuke in Overlord and Zoe, the revolutionary girl, in the audio play Chimpanzee. She studied creative writing at the University of North Texas and besides voice acting, Heather is a writer, poet, birdwatcher, and environmentalist. So not only does she love voicing animals, she loves protecting them too.

Voice actor Andy Field is best known as the probably-friendly voice of Hand Unit, the smooth-talking computer guide through Five Nights at Freddy’s: Sister Location, and the hilarious Tutorial Unit in Freddy Fazbear’s Pizzeria Simulator. His catch phrase, “Exotic Butters” has evolved into hundreds of YouTube remixes – and an Exotic Butters plushie from Funko! He’s also in the fast-paced sci-fi shooter Nelo and makes terrifying sounds for the zombie survival game Contagion.
As a fan, Andy will go out of his way to show up in the background of a great show. You might see him as a savior in AMC’s The Walking Dead, or as a special agent in NCIS: New Orleans. And watch closely, he’ll be somewhere in Avengers: Infinity War! A former middle school STEM teacher, Andy is a fan of all things nerdy and is a kid at heart. Before he was a voice actor, Andy was employed as a teacher, soldier, emergency medical technician, waiter, bartender, furniture salesman, driver, golf caddie, government contractor, college professor, small business owner, and drummer. He’s still a long-time member of the U.S. Army Reserve at the rank of Lieutenant Colonel, and was deployed to Kuwait, Iraq, and Afghanistan in support of the Global War on Terror.
