Tod Fennell has been a mocap actor in numerous games over the years. Most recently he's been in The Division as a Riker (As in Riker's Island) thug and a lab assistant, but he's also had roles in everything from the Assassin's Creed series to Thief to Deus Ex.
Tod is featured in the second season of Dennis Quaid’s new show The Art of More, airing on Crackle this November 16th, and appeared on the show Natural Born Outlaws, a show that profiles some of America’s most notorious criminals and the law-enforcement officials who brought them to justice. I recently had the pleasure of chatting with Fennell about what it was like to be a child actor in the entertainment industry, his upcoming role in The Art of More and his love for Star Trek: The Next Generation.

For as nervous as I was to do an interview where I can’t interact with someone in person, this episode turned out fantastic! I talked with actor Tod Fennell who is currently up in Montreal and we had a great conversation. Tod’s been a actor since he was a wee one and has consistently worked throughout his career. He’s quite the versatile actor with his foot in television and film. He’s also worked in the voice over field for animation and video games including Assassin’s Creed and Tom Clancy’s The Division for which he also did motion capture.
Outside of acting, Tod is extremely accomplished and active in his community. He has a black belt in Shotokan and is a trained dancer. His philanthropic endeavors include work with World Vision Canada, the Canadian Red Cross and the SPCA. A self confessed space nerd, Tod also workds with the Planetary society and the SETI Institute.
Actor Tod Fennell has been in the game since he was a young boy. Having many TV, film, and even video game voice acting credits to his name, Todd has a lot on the go. A native Montrealer and born dog lover, it was only natural we meet Todd at one of his favorite spots, the dog-friendly HOT DOG CAFE, with his wife Gina and best friend, Havok.
Tod Fennell is a Canadian actor who has appeared in several film and television roles. To date he has starred in over 50 different films, cartoons and television series. In Assassin’s Creed II he voiced Bernardo Baroncelli and voiced Mason Locke Weems in Assassin’s Creed III.
