Get ready for our second dub cast announcement for Free! -Eternal Summer-! Today’s unveil is the cute, hilarious, definitely-not-a-thug Nagisa Hazuki! Who’s playing the Iwatobi Swim Club founder and resident troublemaking penguin-lover?
Nagisa (played by Tsubasa Yonaga in the Japanese version) is played by Greg Ayres! You might recognize Greg from such roles as Ouran High School Host Club’s Kaoru Hitachiin, Hetalia’s Denmark, and No. 6’s Shion. A lot of people also guessed this one right too! （‐＾▽＾‐）
We asked Greg a few questions pertaining to the role!
Question: Can you swim? If so, what’s your best stroke?
Greg: I have been a little water bug since I was a kid. While I mostly swim for fun, I guess my best stroke would be the freestyle stroke. I also love the sidestroke too.
Question: What’s your favorite marine animal?
Greg: My favorite marine animal without a doubt would be the otter!! Their playfulness totally speaks to the big kid in me. They make swimming look fun, and easy, and super cute all in one stroke.
Question: When you were in high school, what did you want to be when you grew up?
Greg: I had always hoped I would be an actor when I grew up. Now that I’ve made it to the “acting” part, I guess I need to work on the “growing up” part. 🙂
