While most English anime voice actors are known primarily for their roles within the anime industry, many of them also take parts in Western animation, too. You may not expect that Sasuke Uchiha from Naruto is voiced by the same person who plays Ben Tennyson from Ben 10, but Yuri Lowenthal is the talent behind both of these very different characters.
Lowenthal is far from the only person to transcend mediums - countless other voice actors, from Laura Bailey to Todd Haberkorn, have done the same thing. There's no reason for their incredible talents to be restricted to anime, but it's still wild to see these anime voice actors' range.
Todd Haberkorn is an actor, director, producer, and writer who has voiced a ton of anime characters, mostly for Funimation. He started his acting career in theater, and lives in Los Angeles, CA. In addition to his anime roles, he's also lent his voice to video games and American TV shows.

Yuri Lowenthal isn't one of those anime voice actors who has merely dabbled in Western animation - the majority of his notable credits are from Western cartoons. Why talk about him here, in that case? Because he played Sasuke Uchiha in Naruto, one of the most time-consuming and legendary roles in anime history.
Aside from voice acting, Lowenthal is also the author of Voice-Over Voice Actor: What It's Like Behind the Mic and Tough City.
