In this edition of #BeyondTheBooth, we sit down with voice actress Kat Cressida at the Mulberry Street Pizzaria in Beverly Hills, to chat about her accomplished voiceover career. She has worked in nearly every facet of the voiceover industry, including animation, video games, theme park attractions, voice matching, ADR, promos, live hosting, looping, and more.
With a father that worked with the Walt Disney Imagineering team, Kat Cressida spent much of her childhood at Disneyland and learned to appreciate the behind-the-scenes aspects of the park that many children her age might not have noticed. Her deep love of storytelling drew her toward a career in acting, starting out on-camera in commercials and television series, and eventually leading to working primarily in voiceover.
In this interview, Kat talks about her love for Disney and the theme park attractions she has lent her voices to, including the audition process for the role of Constance Hatchaway, the black widow bride that resides in The Haunted Mansion that was one of the first new characters brought into the classic attraction after almost 30 years. Learn about the craft of voice matching and ADR, and just how involved looping a film can be. Find out just how exhausting a video game voiceover gig can be for voice actors, what it was like to work in the same room as voiceover legends like Jeff Bennett and Rob Paulsen during her first animation voiceover gig as Dee Dee in Dexter's Laboratory, plus why she prefers voiceover to live action, and what projects you can hear Kat in in the near future.
