“The thing that I enjoy about animation is the fact that it is unbridled and there are no boundaries. When you are in the room, you don’t have to focus on your clothing, make-up, hair, your choreography or your blocking. You really do have total freedom.
“It is that total freedom that I really enjoy, as there is no judgement and there are no critics there watching to see what you are going to do. It is just a free-for-all, and I really enjoy that process.
“When you are working with incredible directors, then the responsibility lies on them to do the product and get the story told. It takes a lot of pressure off me, and I just get to go in and have a play session.”
– Jodi Benson, the voice of Ariel in Disney’s The Little Mermaid
