STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS Voice Actor Tom Kane Has Suffered A Stroke & May Be Forced To Retire

Long time voice actor Tom Kane (Star Wars: The Clone Wars, The Powerpuff Girls) has sadly suffered a stroke, and while he is now recovering, he may be forced to leave his line of work behind...

Whether you're a fan of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, The Powerpuff Girls, The WIld Thornberrys or several other shows and video games, there's a good chance you'll have heard the voice of Tom Kane. From Yoda to Admiral Yularen to Admiral Ackbar, Mr. Kane has brought many well-loved characters to life over the course of his 30-year career.

 Sadly, he recently suffered a personal tragedy that may affect his future.

His daughter has confirmed that the actor had stroke, and may be forced to retire as a result.

"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." 

Some sad news, but let's hope he recovers. We all wish Mr. Kane well during this difficult time.
