Catch some inspiration from CSI's Robert David Hall and find out why voice acting is not limited by physical infirmities.

Greetings,

Yesterday I read an inspirational article at onMilwaukee.com about an actor named Robert David Hall.

Currently, Robert is best known for his work as the coroner, Dr. Albert Robbins, on "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation", but in the past, it was his voice we all knew best as a voice actor on the cartoon series, "GI Joe" along with a host of radio commercials and cartoon voice-over work.

In 1978, he was involved in an automobile accident, suffering the weight of an 18-wheel truck, crushing his car and resulting in the loss of both his legs. He now has two prosthetic legs.

Robert David Hall did not let his physical disability ruin his dreams.

Just because I'm a person with a disability, that shouldn't limit me, he says.
