Notable video game and Call of Duty Zombies voice actor Tom Kane suffered a stroke roughly two months ago.
Tom Kane’s daughter, Sam, updated fans on her father’s status in a recent Facebook post, saying:
“Hi everyone! This is Tom’s daughter, Sam. Our family wanted to share why my dad has been MIA. About two months ago he had a left side stroke that gave him right sided weakness and damage to the speech center of his brain. This means right now he cannot efficiently communicate verbally, nor read or spell. He is still competent and very much himself, but can only get out a few words right now. As many of you might know about strokes, it is possible for him to gain these functions back and we have found him excellent care in Kansas City for speech, occupational, and physical therapy, but for now, we have been warned by his Neurologist that he may not do Voiceovers again.
My dad still remains in good spirits and his extreme stubbornness has helped him already show improvements in speech. He is fully on board with me sharing this and he will see anything you guys post.
Lots of love from our family to yours.”
Tom Kane has a ton of impressive performances under his belt including roles in several Star Wars projects (video games and animation), Ghost of Tsushima, Archer, and more. Although Kane’s IMDb page is pretty stacked, he is probably best known around the Call of Duty community for his role as Takeo Masaki throughout Call of Duty: Zombies.
Our thoughts go out to Tom Kane and his family during this time. We at ModernWarzone wish him a quick and full recovery.
