‘Gravity Falls': Kristen Schaal Talks About Voicing Mabel
Over the years, Kristen has worked on some of the most popular TV shows and movies, including Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, Modern Family and Toy Story of Terror. But she constantly stays busy voicing Mabel on Disney’s Gravity Falls.
So, what is the difference between performing a voiceover and acting?
“Voiceovers are little more free in a way rather than on camera,” Kristen told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “You can really funnel all your energy in your voice and not worry about any other part of your body, you are putting everything in the voice.”
Kristen also said that compared to acting, voiceovers are “relaxing” and “not as stressful” because you are not on camera.
‘Gravity Falls': What Can Fans Expect Next Season?
