I'm Tatsuya Shimomatsu and I'm a voice actor. Sorry for doing this by phone, but you know how it is. I can't damage the image people have of my characters, so I don't show my face very often.
Do you see any errors here? Are there any other expressions interchangeable with "you know how it is"?
I think "you know how it is" is the best phrase for this short spoken language text. I can't think of anything better, and I don't think it's necessary to do so.

I've been a voice actor for 25 years, and I've played all sorts of popular characters. I've done the hero of anime shows everyone knows about. I also do voice-overs for movies.

It's definitely modern rhetoric rather than traditional English: if you can't damage your image, you don't have to worry about it, so you have no problem going out in public.
I'd change it to "I don't want to spoil" rather than "I can't damage."
