  • Quotes

    • (while discussing the "How do I get into voice acting" question at an interview at Otakon 2004)
      Luci: a large portion of it is just like anything in acting. It's being lucky. I didn't know about anime. Crispin Freeman told me about it, and I was like ani-what? I don't think any of us searched it out. It was something that we all kind of fell into. The doors open and you just walk through them.

    • (When asked at Otakon 2004 about her favorite dub character.)
      Luci: My favorite is Ran in Super Gals. She's my alter ego; I just love her. It's like therapy without paying.

    Luci has a wonder voice and looks. She does an amazing job on Anime shows. And she shows great talent while voicing her characters.
  • She's just great! She is so well-rounded, and roles just seem to fall perfectly on her lap.

    I got the chance to see Luci Christian at Phoenix Catcus Comic Con, in a panel. I was amazed at how down to earth and open minded she was!

    She has a lot going on for her right now, and rightfully so. She is the perfect voice for the bubble characters (Someone has to do them!) and her fun personality does just voice them, but she seems to actually love doing what she's doing. Insightful, she didn't sugar-coat the industry. But gave the pros and cons to her work, and noted how it isn't as easy as it sounds. She also mentions that with the new management with anime, it is very hard it is to meet deadlines.moreless
