How did you get into the dubbing world ?
I've started by singing the opening credits of Candy (キャンディ・キャンディ / Candy Candy) for television thanks to Charles Level, the lyricist, who had the occasion to hear my voice...
How did you get chosen to sing The Rescuers' soloist songs and how did the recording go ?
After Candy, I've been asked to try out for an audition for The Rescuers (Les Aventures de Bernard et Bianca in French)... I've been chosen... And during the recording, there was the American superviser almost under my nose. I was very intimidated but it went very well. Perette Pradier (voice actress, voice of Medusa in The Rescuers) and Roger Carel (voice actor, voice of Bernard in The Rescuers), who were recording their parts too, were wonderful to me and complimented me.
How did you become Cinderella's speaking and singing voice ?
For Cinderella, again a singing audition, but also a speaking one this time because Disney USA wanted one voice for both speaking and singing parts. I've been lucky to be chosen... My voice matched well to what they wanted. I've started by the songs and, like I wasn't a comedian, to put me at ease, they made me record alone for the speaking parts.
Did you audition to reprise your role in the sequels of Cinderella in 2002 and 2007 ?
I didn't reprise the role in the sequels, I haven't been proposed to. I didn't get the chance to see them, I should do it.
Did you audition for other animated roles ?
I've took part in a lot of Disney choirs, like Aladdin, Lady and the Tramp, Bambi, Mulan... and a lot more in DVDs.
Is there a Disney role (princess or else) that you had liked to dub ?
There's not specifically other roles I had liked to do... They all have something touching !
How does the recording of choir/chorus go and what is your best memory of a Disney choir ?
With my sister and my cousins, 'Les Fléchettes' (band name), we've done a lot of Disney choir with the Costa brothers, and other male chorists, directed by Georges Costa... Sometimes all together, sometimes boys and girls apart, depending to what had to be sung.
What's your favourite Disney character, song and movie ?
There's no particular character, song or movie that I prefer... They're all different with an unique charm... But I still have a weakness for the old movies.
