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 before migrating to Hollywood and becoming one of the industry’s most prolific bilingual voice-over announcers and actors. Born in Mexico City to a Mexican father and a Chilean mother, Christian spent over 15 years living throughout Mexico and Latin America before becoming a naturalized U.S. Citizen. Equally proficient and accent-free in both English and Spanish, Christian Lanz truly represents the voice of the new cross-cultural U.S. media market. A six-time Voice Arts Award winner and nineteen-time nominee with several thousand commercials, promos, and movie trailers to his credit in both English and Spanish, Lanz is a veteran voice actor and broadcast announcer with an extensive client list of leading global brands, TV networks, and film studios in addition to his work in animation and video games. He also serves as the live announcer for the network telecasts of The Daytime Emmy Awards, The LA Emmy Awards, The TV Land Awards, The American Cinematheque Awards, and Hallmark Channel’s Hero Dog Awards. 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. 30 years later, Lanz would have the privilege of working alongside his childhood idol Welker on the new “Scooby Doo: Mystery Incorporated” television series after joining the cast in the show’s second season, along with appearances in several other “Scooby-Doo” series and films thereafter. Christian has also lent his voice to a variety of recurring characters on some of the most popular animated TV shows and video games, perhaps most notably as the vain and scheming “Chancellor Esteban” on Disney’s “Elena of Avalor”, iconic Batman villain “Two-Face/Harvey Dent” in the “LEGO Batman : Family Matters” movie, the ruthless “Xever” (and his mutant alter-ego “Fishface”) on Nickelodeon’s massively successful “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” series, and as “Puss in Boots” for DreamWorksTV’s animated series, “Epic Cat Battles with Puss in Boots”, a role which earned Lanz his first of two consecutive Voice Arts Award for Best TV Animation Voiceover in 2016 as well as numerous lead and guest-star roles on Netflix’s “Spy Kids: Mission Critical”, “Seis Manos”, “Victor and Valentino”, “Where’s Waldo”, “Spirit: Riding Free”, multiple iterations of “Scooby-Doo”, “Curious George”, the “Call of Duty” game franchise, and others. Known for voicing an extensive list of suave Latino characters, Lanz often voice-doubles for actors Antonio Banderas, Ricardo Montalban, and “The Most Interesting Man in the World”. In his spare time, Christian enjoys playing guitar at his private recording studio, snowboarding, photography, and working on home improvement and design projects. A devoted automotive “gearhead” and lifelong aviation and motorsports enthusiast, he also enjoys tuning performance cars, taking road trips with his family, and spending weekends at their mountain cabin in Lake Arrowhead, CA. He resides with his wife and two sons in Los Angeles, CA.
