Matthew "Matt" Hill (born January 19, 1968) is a Canadian voice actor who works for Ocean Studios in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. He is known for several roles, including Kira Yamato in Gundam Seed and Gundam Seed Destiny, Ryo Sanada in Ronin Warriors and of course, Ed in Ed, Edd n Eddy. He is of Irish and Scottish ancestry.
He was born in the same place as Samuel Vincent, the voice of Edd in Ed, Edd n Eddy. The two are often cast together as friends, most famously as the two protagonists of the Gundam SEED franchise; Kira Yamato (Hill) and Athrun Zala (Vincent). Hill maintains a friendship with Vincent as a result. He has one of the most youthful and recognized voices in the voice acting community, often cast in teenage roles because of this. His live action role was the suit actor as Raphael in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III. In Ninja Turtles: The Next Mutation, he voiced Raphael.
Other animation roles Hill is known for include Ryo Sanada in Ronin Warriors, Carlos in Transformers: Armada, Ironhide in Transformers: Energon, Artha Penn & Dragon Booster in Dragon Booster and Soarin in My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic.
Hill is also an avid marathon runner. He finished a year-long run around North America in 2008-2009, called the Run for One Planet. For the run, he and his partner ran a marathon nearly every day for one year in various cities across the United States and Canada and also gave school presentations and speaking events for environmental awareness.
