Kevin Conroy Reveals His Favorite Episode of BATMAN: THE ANIMATED SERIES
Kevin Conroy brought Batman to life in the most awesome ways in Batman: The Animated Series. That voice is iconic and it’s the definitive voice of Batman. Whenever I read Batman comic books, it’s always Kevin Conroy’s voice in my head.
In case you’re wondering what Conroy’s favorite episode in the series is. He revealed In a recent interview with ComingSoon, that it’s “Perchance to Dream.” He says:
“My favorite episode of Batman: The Animated Series would probably be 'Perchance to Dream.' I love many of the episodes, but that one... What's made the character fun for me to play is his complexity, his darkness. All of that is rooted in the loss of his parents when he was a child, and anything that deals with that psychology and that psychodrama that he lives in makes it fun for me as an actor.”
He goes on to explain:
In that episode, “Perchance to Dream," he is sent back into his childhood when he’s drugged, and he confronts his father. He inhabits his old, young self. It’s such a psychological journey he goes through that I loved working on as an actor.
If you don’t remember the episode I provided it below for you to watch. It was directed by the late Boyd Kirkland and it really is an incredible episode. It’s considered by many to be one of the best of the series.
