In 2017 at just 12 years old, Bay Area native Rosalie Chiang was hired as a “scratch” voice to help find the character and the voice of Mei Lee for Disney/Pixar’s latest film, Turning Red. This is a common practice in voiceover, as a scratch recording is preliminary audio used as reference for the final take of a film. To Rosalie's surprise, on her final day in the recording booth she discovered she officially landed the role of Meilin Lee in Pixar’s first Asian-led feature film!
In this interview with Rosalie Chiang by Seventeen, Rosalie discusses her experience working on Turning Red, shares industry advice, and explains how it feels to break the barrier of being in Pixar's first Asian-led film. With the month of May being Asian-American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month here in the US, bringing AAPI talent to the forefront is especially important. We hope you find inspiration and encouragement in Rosalie's story!
