Christian Lanz is an American actor best known for providing voices in video games. He provided the voice of Anthony Fizano, a Chicago police officer and a drug addict at the Shangri La Garden in the video game Hitman: Absolution.
Mexico City native Christian Lanz has lived and worked throughout Latin America and the United States, where he enjoyed a career as a licensed Architect for several years before migrating into the entertainment industry and becoming one of Hollywood's most prolific bilingual voiceover announcers and actors.
With well over a thousand television and radio commercials and promos to his credit in both English and Spanish, Lanz is a veteran commercial voiceover performer and broadcast announcer with an extensive recurring client list which includes leading brands such as Verizon Wireless, McDonald's, Microsoft, Home Depot, Walgreen's, The FOX Network, MTV, and AmPm Convenience Stores, among many others. In addition to his voice work, Lanz has also appeared on camera as a spokesman, host, and actor in dozens of national commercials and television projects.
Throughout his career, Lanz has spent many years living and working in such culturally diverse environments as Mexico City, Chile, Costa Rica, Denver and Los Angeles, providing the multicultural actor with the opportunity to hone his ear for dialects and accents, allowing him to cross over effortlessly between the general and Hispanic media markets for both voiceover as well as on-camera projects.
Equally proficient and accent-free in both English and Spanish, as a young immigrant Lanz first learned to speak English at the age of six by watching legendary voice actor Frank Welker as "Fred" in the original "Scooby Doo" animated television series. As destiny would have it, 30 years later Lanz would have the privilege of working alongside Welker on the new "Scooby Doo: Mystery Incorporated" television series after joining the cast in the show's second season. Lanz also voices a variety of lead and recurring characters on several other animated TV series including Nickelodeon's enormously successful "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" reboot and the Emmy-winning "Curious George" on PBS, among others.
In addition to his animation credits and his extensive commercial work, Lanz also lends his voice to an assortment of characters on an ever-expanding list of popular video game titles including "Transformers: Dark of the Moon", "Hitman: Absolution", "XCOM", "Syndicate", and the eagerly awaited "Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City" as well as "All Points Bulletin" (APB) from EA Games, "Medal of Honor", and "Prison Break: The Conspiracy" based on the hit FOX TV show.
Lanz's favorite pastimes include playing Blues guitar in his home studio, snowboarding, photography, and working on home improvement and design projects. A self-proclaimed gearhead and lifelong motorsports fan, Lanz also enjoys modifying performance cars and spending the day at the local racetrack.
