[A new Sailor Moon dub] has been a legend among voice actors for the last four or five years, studios have almost got it so many times … I got a random email in my inbox, and they said “There’s an anime show you might want to audition for” - they didn’t tell us what the title of the show was, they sent all the sites for the characters, and so I opened them up, and I’m like, “this must be a joke” … “Maybe it’s a spoof,” because it just said ‘Sailor Jupiter’, ‘Sailor Moon’, ‘Sailor Venus’ … because obviously they wouldn’t be so chill about sending this out. This is SAILOR MOON. So I ignored it, for like 2 days. … Maybe I thought, like, if it’s still in my inbox in 2 days, then it’s real, and I will record it. If not, I don’t want to get my hopes up.
And they said you can’t tell anyone … I wasn’t supposed to tell family I was auditioning, none of the voice actors could tell each other they were auditioning for it. … I showed up to record another project and Stephanie Sheh [new actress for Sailor Moon] was there, and I said “Oh my gosh, I’m gonna be super late to get to this… other… session… thing,” and she goes “Me too… um… where you going?” … “Yeah, uh, to… um… I mean, I really can’t talk about it…” and she’s like, “Oh my God, is it the thing, that we’re not supposed to know that we’re in and nobody can know??” and I was like [gasps] “You know about the THING! Oh my Gosh! Are you in the thing too??” She’s like, “I am! Are you- are you one of the things, in the thing?” I was like “YESSS. Thank God, I’m glad we understand each other.” … The first rule of Sailor Moon is don’t talk about the fact that you’re in Sailor Moon. They’ll kill you.
… Getting to walk around to other conventions and have people say, “Yeah, they’re re-dubbing Sailor Moon,” and I had to really work really hard on “No way! Is that… is that a show? … I thought they did that. Is that the one with the cats?”"
