Fave thing learned about characters and any difficulties with voicing
Josh learned in season 2 that Shiro can loose his cool, loved finding that out about him. With 2 young kids, that voice kinda comes naturally. Loves Shiro’s dark sense of humour when he’s poking fun at his grave injuries
Jeremy: for Lance usually lines are kinda there to lighten mood or make people laugh and Jeremy just tries making people in booth laugh and if he’s done that he knows he’s good, like playing off people around
Kim: for Allura, didn’t have an accent before and added it to differentiate her from earthlings. trying to find different sound for Allura. Struggles a little, especially with big paragraphs
What goes through mind when playing off inner demons like Allura and Keith with Galra, Lance being 7th wheel, Shiro trying to be civil with Slav
Jeremy: trying to make it as real as possible, think of something similar that’s happened to you but usually it’s there in the script how characters are feeling. A lot of them are still teenagers so still trying to find place and what is my thing and where I fit.
Kim: for Allura, it can get pretty boring to be a princess, but it’s great she has this mission but also this struggle, love that not just typical princess like in last ep where she’s fighting haggar, has a lot of duality
Josh: basically just try to make it real for myself, has to take himself to certain people he knows who are like that. Has a lot in common with Shiro and for the rest just rely on writing and what else he’s seen in show
For Allura, bigger arc in second season, internal motivation, conflict
Kim: when recorded it, she’s ignoring Keith, acting like a teenager, has moment off screen where she realizes it and that she hasn’t been being better self. Kim was surprised to see comments online about people upset she forgave Keith because “she has right to feel that way” because she never saw it that way
Josh: how cool though that an animated show can take an issue like that and make discussions happen
What are you excited to see with characters and explore in future
Everyone: want Shiro back
Jeremy: most excited for Lance to step up into leadership role and be more serious and responsible (at times, cause he’ll always also be Lance). Fun to see people get opportunities to be more mature. Pleasantly surprised when certain characters get to step up and be more serious
Fave s2 scenes
Josh: chase on cow
Kim: Hunk’s slow mo run away from Vrepit Sal’s, Pidge learning Altean with the bear, Coran looking for a mouse for no reason, little precious moments
Jeremy: Coran deaging
Kim: a lot of good fight scenes, like BoM
Kim gets scripts and cannot stop reading, says it’s so fun to be a part of
Oh. My. God. alsfjsdf I JUST noticed Josh’s new twitter header how did I not notice before
CAN SOMEONE PLEASE REDRAW THIS WITH THE VOLTRON CHARACTERS PLEASE I’LL GIVE YOU MY FIRSTBORN ((and if it’s already been redrawn can someone send it to me))
Jeremy and Kimberly look like they’re not exactly sure how to do it. Bex looks like she’s doing a lazy dab (note the bent left arm). Josh has fucking PERFECT form. Tim is pretty good too. Tyler also, tho he kinda looks more like he’s trying to hide his face than dab
Props to Kimberly Brooks. She can change her voice significantly for different characters. From the big buff cheeto puff Jasper, Skinny, and finally Allura. She can sound like a tough woman and then go and sound like a beautiful princess. Props to you Kimberly, you’re truly an amazing voice actress.
So I made a post before and actually reblogged it with these updates, but I’m not overly familiar with the finer workings of Tumblr posts and apparently nobody saw it because I am continuously getting messages that Mark Meer and others are not on the first part. Hopefully this helps!
(kinda embarrassed I forgot Claudia Black in part 1, I had hers on my list but completely overlooked making her picture )
(also I know that Jon Curry voiced both Zevran and one of the Male Inquisitors, but I did not include because both characters are only in Dragon Age and not one of the other two)
(also Star Wars The Old Republic characters are not included on the list simply because I have not experienced the game, I’m not familiar with the characters in question, and I don’t want to get them wrong. Sorry!)
Claudia Black - Morrigan (DAO, DAI), Daro’Xen vas Moreh (ME2, ME3), Matriarch Aethyta (ME2, ME3)
Simon Templeman - Loghan Mac Tir (DAO, DAI), Dr. Gavin Archer (ME2, ME3), Han’Gerrel vas Nema (ME2, ME3)
Kimberly Brooks - Ashley Williams (ME1, ME2, ME3), Lanaya (DAO)
I’m compiling a list of similarities between Mass Effect and Voltron. Honestly at this point I’ve found so many that it’s hard to believe someone (or more than one?) at DreamWorks isn’t deliberately throwing a bone for ME fans here. And so far this one is probably my favorite. Why?
Because Allura’s spacesuit is mostly white with pink details. Ashley’s default suit for ME1 and 2 is also mostly white with pink details. Both are very strong female characters in their respective franchise provided you didn’t kill Ash in 1 but why would you do that???
But wait, it gets better.
These two right here? Ashley and Allura?
Same voice actress, the incredible Kimberly Brooks.

totally feasible! her VA has a musical theatre background, she was planning to be a singer once. i know some have expressed concern about her jasper-voice, but like… y’all. do not underestimate the power of kimberly brooks. she’s easily one of the most vocally talented cast members, with the best range. i mean. i talked about this with a pal earlier this week - this is her normal voice.
