Japanator Interviews: Cristina Vee

0

Voice Idol, Game Star

Cristina Vee is becoming one of the most prolific voice actresses in the English dub anime industry. Her sweet vocals can be heard in K-On giving life to the scaredy cat bassist, or as the hot-tempered shrine maiden Sailor Mars in Sailor Moon. Cristina is also very popular on Youtube singing her way through multiple different anime songs either solo or in collaboration with other musicians like Y. Chang. Last week Veecaloid Pop, an iOS game paying homage to Cristina's work in singing and voice acting was released. 

Recently Cristina was able to take some time off voicing some of our favourite characters and being generally awesome to answer a few of our questions. 

Japanator - How many times do your friends pester you for impersonations of their favourite character?

Cristina - My immediate friends don't really ask me for impersonations, but I usually force them on them anyway! The worst is actually at conventions; I've been asked multiple times at panels to give a sample of Riven or Homura Akemi and their response after the fact is sometimes "....pretty close", or "....that was okay". It's hard to maintain a voice after air travel and speaking all weekend, haha!

Japanator - Out of all the characters you have played from anime and video games; which one had been the most interesting to get into the mind set of?

Cristina - If you take a look at my resume, you might notice a trend. Many of my characters are emotionally damaged or just completely broken. It's awesome. I really loved voicing Homura Akemi in Madoka because of everything she goes through. I don't think I've seen a character as well developed as her in the last ten years of anime. That being said, I really enjoy completely throwing myself off the deep end. I voiced Four in Drakengard 3 and I had such a blast because she is completely nuts. She is past the point of redemption.

Japanator - Veecaloid Pop is a game that was made for you Cristina, is this a rarity, or do you get a lot of fan made games?

Cristina - I don't know of any other voice actors who have their own video game-- correct me if I'm wrong! I feel so lucky to have the amazing, talented friends who put me in this unique position. Adam Tierney, James Montangna, Lindsay Collins, and Andrew Lim are as passionate about games, art, and music as they come.

Japanator - Will we see a duet between Cristina Veecaloid and Milky in the near future?

Cristina - I think a duet might be crossing the streams a little too much! Milky's next single is coming along beautifully though. I'll give you one hint: it's about corgis.

Japanator - Which one would you rather be in real life: a cosmic idol or a magical girl (sans contract of course!)? 

Cristina - I think it's very telling about my personality that I became a voice actor. I don't really enjoy being in the limelight, but I love being part of a team and making an impact. I'm going to go with magical girl! I'm thinking more along the lines of Sailor Moon and not Madoka Magica. I'd love to save the world without the mental anguish, thank you very much!
