DescriptionWhen she stepped into that recording booth, she had no idea what Rick and Morty would become. Kira Klonel interviews Melique Berger in Los Angeles, California, on November 23rd, 2017. Berger provides context of her childhood and what led her to acting, saying it’s “all she’s ever known”. Her unique heritage meant she wasn’t as accepted for on-screen acting, so voice acting was an obvious step for Melique. They discuss Berger’s career of voice acting and her roles on shows such as Rick and Morty. Gain insight to behind the scenes of an animated series; and the process of animation voice acting, auditioning, and the close knit community of voice actors. At minutes 3 to 4:25, she discusses the shock of seeing a Rick and Morty section at a store, and a man who got a tattoo of one of a character she voices. Melique’s career teaches us about finding a passion, and taking every opportunity available.
