One-on-One with Gumball!
We gave our bro Logan Grove, A.K.A. the voice of Gumball, a call to ask him about his amazing experience in the Amazing Wold of Gumball!
K-Zone: Hey, Logan! Great to meet ya! Now onwards to business! Can you tell us how you got the role of Gumball?
Logan: It was just luck! I went on an audition where 50-100 kids tried out. And it turned out they like my voice!
KZ: Whoa! That sounds sooo cool! Congrats, bro! So, how do you prepare for a taping sesh? Do you, like, have a special ritual?
Logan: I drink around three cups of tea and water, because there’s a lot of screaming in the show!
KZ: Yeah, we noticed that Gumball screams…A LOT! So how are you able to scream so loud and so high?
Logan: I just have to bellow it out! It’s really fun doing it!
KZ: Sounds exhausting! So, how does a taping sesh go?
Logan: We just record the audio. I do a line, and if they like it we’ll move on to the next until we finish the script. We play things up and try different things. We’ll redo some lines until we do it right.
KZ: Are you as annoying as Gumball in real life?
Logan: I don’t think so, but I probably am.
KZ: We bet! What other traits do you share with Gumball?
Logan: I’m adventurous, I’m loud, I enjoy hanging out with friends, and I enjoy being myself.
KZ: If Gumball has a foil helmet for good luck, what do you have?
Logan: I don’t have a foil helmet, but I do have a few keychains from Gumball I have in my room.
KZ: Do you have a real-life Penny like Gumball? TELL US!
Logan: At the moment, no. But I’ll keep you posted.
KZ: Gumball loves pranks. How about you? And what’s the best prank you’ve ever pulled?
Logan: I enjoy pulling pranks, and of course I get pranked back. Honestly, I enjoy scaring people—those are always fun to do and I love to do them all the time at school! There was this one time I scared one of my friends and he fell to the ground screaming, which I think was hilarious!
KZ: Who’s your favorite cartoon character outside the Gumball universe?
Logan: I love Mordecai from the Regular Show!
KZ: Sweet! How about video games?
Logan: I play on the XBOX a lot! I just got HALO 4 and Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, but I can’t play them yet because of school.
KZ: The show is about Gumball…so, do you eat gumballs?
Logan: I do! And my friends actually bought me a gumball machine and they printed a picture of Gumball and taped it to the front of the machine. It’s now inside my room, full of gumballs!
KZ: What is your most embarrassing moment?
Logan: Being with my friends, they always embarrass me a lot. It’s really hard to choose one! I get embarrassed once or twice a day because of my friends. It’s what we do, it’s so much fun.
KZ: We saw your on screen acting stints! But which do you prefer, on-screen or voice acting?
Logan: I like both, actually! In voice acting, you can just go in your pajamas and I like it because you can put more of yourself in the character. But I also like on screen acting ‘coz you can really communicate with people in the scene and you can get more of your emotions out.
KZ: What can we expect from the new season of Gumball?
Logan: You can expect a lot more screams, more laughs, more adventures. It’s so crazy, it’s great!
