"This is definitely number one. This was part of my early training. I was actually lucky to work in the industry doing ADR, post-production work. When you see an animated character in the background in a movie, those voices need to be recorded, but they're not recorded at the time that scene is shot. I was fortunate enough to hook up with Barbara Harris and that was one of the movies I was hired on, and I got to scream for the shoe."

"How I got it was that I was auditioning for something else and there were two auditions going on. All of these beautiful women were coming out and had legs up to their necks. I was the last one to go into this other thing and this guy looked at me and asked me if I tap danced, and that's how I got it! It was so ridiculously anti-casting."
