Richard Ian Cox (born October 3, 1973) is a Welsh-Canadian actor, online radio host, and comedian. He is best known for his voice acting for English language dubs of anime, mainly for InuYasha.[1] Richard gained prominence for playing the character of Henry Dailey's (played by Mickey Rooney) teenaged traveller and horse rider, Alec Ramsay, in The Family Channel's Adventures of the Black Stallion during the early 1990s. Cox also gained fame for voicing Ian Kelley, the title character in the animated series Being Ian, and for voicing Scattershot, one of the Autobots in the CGI-Animated series Transformers: Cybertron. He maintains an active online presence on Tumblr and Twitter as well as Facebook. He hosts his own podcast called The Show. He has famously admitted on numerous occasions to being "underendowed".


Born in St. Asaph, Wales, United Kingdom, Richard began acting at the age of 9. He moved to Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada and at age 14 became a professional actor. After graduating from Vancouver's Richmond Secondary School in 1991, he appeared in a wide variety of guest-starring roles. He is most commonly known for his voice work of Bit Cloud in Zoids: New Century Zero, Ranma Saotome (male) in the later seasons of Ranma ½, and as the title character of InuYasha, which are both series based on the original manga works of Rumiko Takahashi.

By the time he was 16, he won the co-starring role in Black Stallion, opposite Mickey Rooney, where he worked for much of his youth. The two remained close friends, until Rooney's death, on April 6, 2014. He has also voiced various characters in several other anime series, including Mobile Suit Gundam, Galaxy Angel, and Gundam SEED (Tolle Koenig and Shani Andras), as well as various American cartoon characters, such as Quicksilver in X-Men Evolution and BurnerMan in Megaman NT Warrior.

Richard, based in Vancouver, Canada, has made a few guest appearances in Stargate SG-1 and its spin-off Stargate Atlantis, as well as bit parts in series such as ER and Psych. He has also appeared on the Canadian television show The Outer Limits and voices Bedtime Bear in Care Bears: Adventures in Care-a-Lot.

For over a decade, Richard was a senior instructor of actors at Tarlington Training in Vancouver, helping develop the acting skills of hundreds of young people and currently teaches film acting at South Delta Secondary School.

He hosts The Show, an online radio show. Richard enjoys a dedicated fan base throughout North America and around the world.
