  • Quotes

    • (when asked if she was a fan of anime)
      Christine: I'd have to say that I am more of a general fan. Like anyone else I suppose, there are certain shows I like more than others. I'm rather fond of Bubblegum Crisis Tokyo 2040, but I also really like RahXephon and Azumanga Daioh.

    • (talking about random things she likes about her work)
      Christine: And that's kind of the neat thing about this, it's like "oh you watched Orphen too? You liked that? Great!" Just finding people who, it's just such an amazing thing, that if you like something, there were other people who like it too, and you can find SOMEWHERE somebody who likes that stuff.

    • (when asked if she'd ever had good work ruined by bad edits)
      Christine: [laughs] You know what? In movies, in acting that I've done in movies, absolutely. But I tell you, the engineers that we work with over at ADV and Funimation are… gods. If anything, they save… everything. [laughs] There's a line that's three flaps over? Shrink it! It's because of them that dubbing has gotten so good. It's because of our engineers. They are just incredible. They are just absolutely incredible.

    • (when asked if there was a role she really wanted)
      Christine: I really wanted to do Noir.

    • (when asked about characters she liked voicing)
      Christine: RahXephon is really amazing. I had a lot of fun with Elvy. I'm also pretty proud of Genie in Rune Soldier.

    • (after being asked how it's like hearing her voice coming from an animated character)
      Christine: Oh, it's weird at first, but you get used to it. Sometimes when I'm watching a show that I've done, I forget that it's my voice at all.
