Personal life

Taylor is a long-time comic book and Star Wars fan. He and his wife, Allison, have one daughter together named Lydia.

At Star Wars Weekends in 2010, he and Star Wars: The Clone Wars co-star Ashley Eckstein demonstrated to fans how they perform voice-acting for the show. While doing this, Taylor invited his daughter to the stage, where she lent her voice to Fred Tatasciore's character of The Zillo Beast from The Clone Wars episodes "The Zillo Beast" and "The Zillo Beast Strikes Back". Later, he and Corey Burton performed their own version of How the Grinch Stole Christmas using the voices of Obi-Wan Kenobi, Cad Bane, and Ziro The Hutt. The video has been posted on YouTube.

He is good friends with voice actors Jim Ward, Tom Kane, Dee Bradley Baker, Ben Diskin, John DiMaggio, Tara Strong, and Kevin Michael Richardson.

He is also known as the voice of Ratchet in the popular Ratchet & Clank video game series, having voiced Ratchet in every game but the original game, wherein Ratchet was voiced by Mikey Kelley. Taylor is also the voice of Leonardo from TMNT.

Taylor's other large roles include Wooldoor Sockbat on the Comedy Central animated series Drawn Together, Captain Jack Sparrow in Kingdom Hearts II, and many characters in The Animatrix.
