Matthew Hill (born January 19, 1968) is a Canadian actor working for Ocean Productions.[1]


Hill's roles include Ed in Ed, Edd n Eddy, Kevin Keene/Captain N in Captain N: The Game Master, Kira Yamato in Gundam Seed and Gundam Seed Destiny, Raphael in Ninja Turtles: The Next Mutation, Ryo Sanada in Ronin Warriors, Carlos in Transformers: Armada, Ironhide in Transformers: Energon, and Artha Penn and Dragon Booster in Dragon Booster. He is also the voice of the Wonderbolt Soarin' in My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic.

Hill and Samuel Vincent are often cast together as friends, such as in the Cartoon Network programme Ed, Edd n Eddy, with Ed (Hill) & Edd (Vincent) and as the two protagonists of the Mobile Suit Gundam SEED franchise; Kira Yamato (Hill) and Athrun Zala (Vincent).

He has one of the most youthful and recognized voices in the voice acting community, often cast in teenage roles because of this. Hill's live-action role was his portrayal of Raphael in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III and Ninja Turtles: The Next Mutation. He also played the deputy in the live-action movie Shanghai Knights, as well as a dramatized version of Jack Phillips in Titanic.

Besides acting, Hill is also an active athlete and avid marathon runner. He finished a year-long run around North America in 2008-2009, called the Run for One Planet. For the run, Hill 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.
