Voice Actor Brendan McKane Passes Away, Our MASKast 53 Video Tribute


In case you are not connected with the M.A.S.K. community of fans on social media, we recently lost one of our beloved voice actors. Brendan McKane passed away on Dec 29, 2020 after a battle with mesothelioma, a type of lung cancer that was caused by his exposure to asbestos when he was 18 years old. His wife and fellow voice actor Sharon Noble confirmed in a message to supporters from her GoFundMe campaign that helped with their medical bills.

Dec 29, 2020: Brendan passed away a few hours ago. My son and I were with him, but he was completely unconscious, with a machine breathing for him. We had only about 10 minutes with him because it happened very fast. I stroked his head and told him how much we love him, but he couldn't hear me. My heart is broken, and all I can do is scream and cry. He was my life for 43 years. I'm so sorry to have to tell you he's gone. Thank you all for your kindness and care and generosity.

We were very saddened by the news and can hear our personal thoughts on a recent Behind the M.A.S.K. guest appearance. Our hearts go out to Sharon and their children during this difficult time. While we have only personally spoke to Brendan and Sharon in a brief 2015 interview, it did not take long to realize that they are both kind and loving people to their family, friends, and fans. While Brendan had an acting career that spanned three decades in theater, animation, and television, he also worked in real estate and was a practicing attorney. He was a remarkable man by all accounts.

As I mentioned, we were honored to have interviewed Brendan and Sharon on MASKast 53 which gave us and our listeners some great insight into their lives as actors and beyond. As a tribute to his life and career, we recently added visuals to our podcast and have posted on YouTube to enjoy. Most images were found online but also several were provided by M.A.S.K. voice actor Doug Stone and the initial character montage by Kero Wack.

Watch or listen to MASKast 53 below and share your thoughts on Brendan McKane as we say farewell to Miles Mayhem, Alex Sector, Floyd Malloy, Jacques LaFleur, and Nevada Rushmore.
