Jeremy Shada is the voice actor of Lance. He is not only a voice actor, but also an actor and singer. He has acted on several TV series and is best known for his voice role as Finn from Adventure Time.
Originally from Boise, Idaho, Jeremy Shada relocated to California at the age of 5, and immediately began working as a multifaceted young performer. Along with starring in movies like No Rules and Miracle Run, he landed guest starring roles on hit television series including ER, Nip/Tuck, Shark, Cold Case, Parenthood, and recurring roles on Ghost Whisperer, Lost, and See Dad Run, just to name a few. At the same time, Jeremy ventured into the voiceover world, and began working immediately on movies including Team America World Police and Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, as well as animated television projects including Batman: The Brave and the Bold, Chowder, and the Award winning smash show Adventure Time.
Never slowing down, Jeremy has recently worked as a leading series regular on Nick Canon’s live-action sketch comedy series, Incredible Crew where he made the viral video, “Running Errands with my Mom”, guest hosted the Hall of Games for Cartoon Network/Warner Brothers, and guest starred in two made for television movies.
Currently, Jeremy continues to voice the lead character, Finn, on Adventure Time, Lance, on the soon to be released Netflix series DreamWorks Voltron Legendary Defender and Performs live with his pop/punk band Make Out Monday, that he formed with his brother Zack.
While both he and Lance are goofy characters, Shada enjoys playing Lance because they are so different, in that he finds it fun to play someone who so overconfident and yet is not the smartest person in the group at all times. Shada describes himself as being different from Lance in that he himself is more level-headed and realistic, and not flirting constantly. He considers Lance a fun character who is much like Sokka from Avatar: The Last Airbender, and thinks he the one team member who is excited about being in space and doing cool things, which he feels is what resonates with fans.
- In order to get into character, Shada reads the beginning of the script and takes on a flirtatious persona, as in "What are we doing guys? I mean, ladies."
- Shada enjoys The Depths for showcasing Lance and Hunk's friendship and the focused and mature aspects of Lance's character.
