Star Wars Report: How did you get into the voice over industry?
Anna Graves: It’s interesting because some people know what they want to do when they’re little tots but I was theater actor growing up and loved doing accents as a character that I was playing on stage. So when I moved out to LA, I thought “well it’s only natural that I try to do film”. Although for me personally, I found it to be a little uncomfortable. If you speak to other theater actors I think they’ve had similor experiences. I took a job working at a movie promotional trailer house where I had the pleasure of meeting the great Tony Rodgers who is a brilliant trailer VO guy. Sometimes instead of a male voice they’d need a female voice. That was when I realized that “Wait this is a real job. People can really do this”.
