  • Just going to voice my thoughs on one of his charateres and a few random things

    I have only hread Illich Guardiola's voice as Krad on DNAngel, but I thought he played the part very well. He could probably have used a little more time on the show, but the ending was awesome. On the commentary part of the DNAngel DVD set, he was very entertaining with co-star Greg Ayres. One would say somehthing and the other would sort of play off it. It was very interesting to hear Greg and Illich on the commentary. They talked about the other shows they have done and other things that they did. I had to have laughed the hardest when Illich started to sing "lets get it on" and Greg had talked about some Yaoi fans fainting because of that. Near the end of the last epsoide of DNAngel, a close up of a feather showed and Illich said, "Feathers...its the new black." If you haven't seen the DNAngel DVD's and watched each one wih the commentary, you're missing out.moreless
