What makes voice acting special to you?
How do you feel when you step up to the mic, get into character or create something worth hearing with your very own voice?
Each voice actor may articulate their feelings in a different way, however, there are some common threads that bind.
Voice actors Maurice LaMarche and Rob Paulsen were kind to share how they felt at the VOICE 2010 Celebrity Banquet.

The Closest Thing to Magic
At VOICE 2010, special guests Maurice LaMarche and Rob Paulsen shared their thoughts on character voice acting and gave us a taste of their talent. You might recognize their names from starring in Pinky and the Brain (Rob was Pinky and Maurice was the Brain), and for being on shows such as Animaniacs, Futurama and more.
There was some improvised banter as Pinky and the Brain as well as Rob singing the Nations of the World song as Yakko Warner from Animaniacs.
At one point, Maurice, who is Canadian born, shared his thoughts about voice acting and they were so succinct and heartfelt that I quickly jotted them down to share here with you.
“Hearing your voice come out of the mouth of an animated character is the closest thing we have to magic.”
— Maurice LaMarche
