Masters of the Universe fans were first introduced to George DiCenzo in the Filmation episodes “The Sleepers Awaken” and “Eye of the Beholder”. While he is uncredited for his work in these episodes, he provided the voices for Lord Tyrin and Garth before going on for what we most remember him by: his voice work for Hordak, Bow, and Sea Hawk during the entire run of Filmation’s She-Ra Princess of Power.
Mr. DiCenzo was born on April 21, 1940 and began his Hollywood career in the early 70s when he started working on the cult-classic television series Dark Shadows. His career spanned three decades as a character actor in both film, television, and animation. DiCenzo frequently shared his craft with others by serving as an acting coach in both New York City and Philadelphia, working with the likes of Burt Reynolds.
Mr. DiCenzo passed away on August 9, 2010 from sepsis. He will forever be remembered as the masterful voice of Hordak, Ruthless Leader of the Evil Horde to adoring He-Man and She-Ra fans.
