Brian Drummond (born August 10, 1969) is a Canadian actor who is most notable as voicing the role of Vegeta in the Ocean Group dub of Dragon Ball Z.

Drummond was born in Salmon Arm, British Columbia. A graduate of the acclaimed Studio 58, he started out as a theater actor, but eventually found himself moving into voice acting full-time. Based out of Vancouver, British Columbia, he works with Ocean Entertainment on various animated programs.

Personal life

Drummond has a son (Aidan) and two daughters (Ashlyn and Brynna), who have all begun to follow in their father's voice-over work.

Career

Most well known for his role as Vegeta in the Ocean Group Dub of Dragon Ball Z, Drummond tends to be cast as either an impassive warrior (Andrew Waltfeld), or a kind-hearted father-figure (Reverend Malchio). Lately, he has also played the role of the cowardly Yuna Roma Seiran in Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Destiny as well as Ryuk in Death Note. He has landed prominent roles in various anime such as Renkotsu of the Band of Seven in InuYasha, and Gundam Wing as Zechs Merquise. Brian has also appeared in Da Vinci's Inquest in minor background roles. It was Drummond who originally voiced Vegeta's infamous "It's Over 9,000" quote.

Internet memes

Drummond's voice acting as Vegeta has been used for several popular internet memes. During the Dragon Ball Z Episode "The Return of Goku", Drummond, as Vegeta, mistakenly shouts the line "It's over 9,000!" in response to Nappa's inquiry, "Vegeta, what does the scouter say about his power level?" This error was due to a translation error from original Japanese version, but has since become popular enough to be used as a marketing ploy for FUNimation Entertainment.

Other quotes, such as "My Wrath!!" and the exaggerated lines, "Do you understaaaaaand?" and "What do you know about meaningleeeeeeeeeeeeeess!?", during the Frieza Saga and Babidi Saga respectively, have also become the subject of numerous memes.
