On 9th June 2022, Billy Kametz who voiced the iconic Ferdinand von Aegir among other roles, sadly passed away at the age of 35. Earlier in the year, Billy revealed that he was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer.
The news of his passing was shared by Point of Contact Booking, a convention agency that he was a client for. You can view Billy’s obiturary here.
Since the news was shared, there has been a massive outpouring of love from colleagues and fans alike on social media.
Fans also raised well over $150,000 for Billy’s GoFundMe, which is still accepting donations until 14th June. Leftover donations will go towards his celebration of life and funeral.
FE Warriors: Three Hopes, which releases on 24th June 2022, is potentially the last time we’ll hear from Billy, as he reprises Ferdinand.
It’s clear that Billy was an exceptional and beloved man–and a massive shame that his life was cut short. May he rest in peace.
