Actors Ryan Potter (TV’s “Supah Ninjas”) and Daniel Henney (“X-Men Origins: Wolverine”) explore the love between two brothers in the new Walt Disney animated film “Big Hero 6.” In the film, Potter lends his voice to Hiro Hamada, a 14-year-old robotics prodigy who hopes to follow in his older brother Tadashi’s (Henney) footsteps and study at the San Fransokyo Institute of Technology. Hiro decides to use one of his brother’s inventions, a healthcare robot named Baymax, to seek out the truth behind a tragedy that changes his entire life. During an interview with me at the Walt Disney Animation Studios in Hollywood a few weeks ago, I spoke with Potter and Henney about the importance of including a strong emotional story in an animated superhero movie and how excited they were to lend their voices to a film adapted from a Marvel comic book series.
