Animation gives me the opportunity to play some pretty badass mamas! This is Ja Kyee Lrurt from the “Mr. Roboto” episode of Guardians Of The Galaxy. When I recorded the episode I was so overwhelmed by the amazingly talented cast that I was a little on the quiet side (a rare, but wonderful, instance of recording the episode all together at the same time - that rarely happens; most of the stuff I do is solo in the booth). Then when I went to do ADR I was alone, but still overwhelmed because I got to see what the character looked like as I said my lines along to what had been animated. The director asked if I liked the look of the character and I very quietly said that I did. It may actually have seemed like I didn’t. But I was so electrified that I was just trying NOT to bounce off the walls from excitement 🙈. I mean, I had sparks running through my veins and was lightheaded. Has that ever happened to you? It happens to me when I realize that something I’ve always dreamt of is happening. BUT I HAD TO STAY COOL, GUYS! I truly had to work super super suuuuper hard not to cry from pure joy 😂😭 When I was a little girl I wanted to do the voices for cartoons. I didn’t really know what that meant or what is was called, but I wanted to do it waaaay before I ever even thought about wanting to be an actor. And now I get to do it!!!! WHUUUTTT?! I’m a relatively busy voiceover actor and I just love it oh so much! Many thanks to all of you amazingly talented people out there who have hired me and let me lend my voice to your fantastic creations!
