  1. I’m always hesitant to see what voice actors look like. Although they deserve credit (and lots of it!), it can sometimes skew my opinion of the character they are portraying.

    Personally, I hate when I recognize celebrity voices in animations not only because they’re stealing from those that have worked so hard to make careers out of voice acting but because I start picturing that person and not their character. Learning what “regular” voice actors look like has the same effect. And that’s truly unfortunate.

    • Same here. I always wonder what the voice actors look like but I tend to not look into that. That I was the only one.
      I can see why you feel that about celebrity voices. The people will take their attention to them and not the actual work. I never actually thought about it.

      • I’m glad I’m not the only one that feels that way! And one of the worst things about using celebrities is that most don’t even try to change their voices – which is what voice actors train to do.

      • You are not alone, I am with you XD. I noticed that as well. Voice actors train themeselves to match a specific character and regular celebrities just read their lines (I assume). I guess it is easier for them and people will be able to recognize who is speaking. Voice actors has alternate with their real voice and character’s voice.
