Meet Baymax's master

We all know the big cuddly robot that was held on a mission which is very contrary to its original program of taking care of a person. Now let's get to know Hiro, the robot developer who turns out his skills are utilized to save the world against an evil force and developing into a man that many would admire in Disney's Big Hero 6.
Hiro, maker of state-of-the-art robots that go to battle in the dark corners of San Fransokyo (derived from San Francisco and Tokyo since Hiro is Asian-American) is voiced by Ryan Potter -- a Disney fan himself and sees himself very much with Hiro.
Actor, director, martial artist, photographer and philanthropist Ryan Potter was raised in Tokyo, Japan, until the age of 7. His first language was Japanese and he’s a lifelong fan of Manga and Anime.

Potter appeared in the 2014 feature film “Senior Project” and will appear in “Underdog Kids" early next year. He also starred in Nickelodeon’s “Supah Ninjas” as a typical high school student who discovers he descended from a long line of ninjas.

In addition to acting, Potter is skilled in several martial art disciplines. He began training in White Tiger Kung Fu at age 8 and has also studied Wu Shu style Kung Fu, Karate and Capoeira. In addition to White Tiger, Potter trains in martial arts tricking and parkour free running.
Potter is also devoted to painting and photography, often in unison, creating mixed media art, directing and filming his own martial arts videos and is moved by music of all genres. He is planning to attend college next year to study film and art.

Potter is dedicated to raising awareness for several charities including Covenant House and Big Brothers Big Sisters of America. He is grateful for his Big Brother of 10 years and has been a National Spokesperson since 2012. In addition, Toy Box of Hope, a charity that Potter started himself in 2011, raises awareness and donations for homeless children in Los Angeles.

Opening across the Philippines on Nov. 06, 2014, “Big Hero 6” is distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures International through Columbia Pictures.
