We were lucky enough to sit down with the one and only Charles Martinet this week and pop some questions to him about how he got to voice Mario, what he loves about the role and why he thinks Super Mario Maker is so special.

We also picked out some of the best questions that you guys put forward recently - you can catch his replies in the latter part of the interview.

Give it a watch and let us know what you think - and like Charles himself says, don't forget to subscribe to the Nintendo Life YouTube channel.
