  • Quotes

    • Grey DeLisle: I feel like my music is just an extension of my acting. I treat the songs like scenes that tell a story... it's very similar. My favorite thing is when cartoon fans show up to my live gigs! They are always the most kick-butt audience members 'cause they're not trying to act all cool like a lot of the music fans do! It's refreshing!!

    • Grey Delisle: (about how she first decided to get into voice acting) I was always talking in weird voices from the time I was two. I guess I just found a way to keep doing it! I did get a degree in theater and took some voice-over classes... but most of it is just the same stuff I was doing as a kid!

    • Grey Delisle: (about Avatar The Last Airbender) I am ashamed to say... I haven't seen the show!! I hardly ever watch my own work. I just end up picking myself apart! I can't even stand to hear myself on voicemail. the sound of my own voice is like nails on a chalkboard. the same goes for my records.

    • Grey DeLisle: I hate to make a deal about it, but it sort of annoys me that my birthday is wrong in cyberworld! They have me down on Wikipedia (IMDb to be exact) as being born on August 10, 1972…when in actuallity, I was born August 24, 1973!!!! I know it's just a year and a few days difference, but it keeps me awake at night. Well…that…and the scary Santa Claus that Tom Hanks played in The Polar Express…that keeps me awake at night, too.

    • Grey DeLisle: Many thanks for all of the love and good wishes sent our way from my friends out there in cartoon land…the only place where a nine month pregnant woman can still play a hot goth chick in a belly shirt!

    • Grey DeLisle: Somehow, it seems that the sadder a song is, the happier I feel. The release of emotions that many would label as "negative" is actually a liberating process for me.

    Grey DeLisle, one of the great voice actors, has somewhat an aura to make the girls more hot! Dr. Rebecca Holiday, Sam Manson, Mandy, she made them great! Has a gothic accent in her voice, I like it!
  • I like her she stars in every single kids' show except SpongeBob and Camp Lazlo(i think).
