Voice of their own creations

by adampkalb | created - 4 months ago | updated - 1 month ago | Public

Sometimes a creator of a film or TV series will voice their own primary or secondary characters not just to save money on other actors, but to also make more money for themselves. Some may even be talented enough at doing different voices to occasionally get hired to voice extra characters somewhere else. Live action shows such as The Orville are not included.
