If your kids get you to take them to see the animated movie “Ratchet and Clank”, be sure to tell them that “Clank” is from Peterborough.
David Kaye is the voice-over actor who portrays the character. And while he makes his home in LA now with his wife Maria (and their children), David grew up in the south end of the Liftlock City and graduated from Kenner Collegiate.
I met David when we both started the Radio program at Loyalist college.
True story: our radio class had an intramural hockey team. After one of our late-night games, I looked beside me to see a gold necklace sitting on the dressing room bench. I quickly realized that it was David’s, since he had been sitting next to me.
Shortly before midnight, I received a call from a frantic David. “Did you see a gold necklace in the dressing room?” I assured him that I had found it and that I’d return it to him the next morning in class.
“No,” he said. “Maria gave it to me. I’ve never spent a night without it. I’ll be right over to get it!” And he did.
Awwwww. David and Maria. Kenner sweethearts…and still very much in love to this day!
