- How did you enter the dubbing world ? Was Young Miriam in The Prince of Egypt your first dubbing work ? How did it go ?
My mom sent demo voice files to agencies and at some point I got a call to go to a casting for little Miriam. Honestly, I can´t remember if „Young Miriam“ was my first dubbing work. For sure it was my first for me to sing. I had so much fun and it went pretty fast. I remember flying to Berlin with my sister to record my vocals.
- The same year, you dubbed young Kiara for both speaking and singing in The Lion King 2. How did you get cast ? How did the recording session go ?
Again I got a call if I was interested in auditioning, which of course, I was! This time it was a bigger challenge as it was my first bigger speaking-role in the dubbing world. It's quite a fun challenge to get every sentence and expression just right !
- Two years later you've become the singing voice of Melody in The Little Mermaid 2, how were you chosen ? Did you also audition for the speaking parts ?
I went to audition for the part. This time they had already chosen the speaking voice, so I wasn´t even asked.
- At this occasion, you've sang with your big sister, Naomi van Dooren, the singing voice of Ariel, in the song "For A Moment". Did you sing it together, or separated ? What did you think of the experience ?
Unfortunately we didn't get to be in the studio together. It was a lot of fun but also challenging at that time with the highest note in the song ;)
- Were you propose to sing the pop version of Part Of Your World from the end credits, as other european versions did (France, Denmark ...)
No, I was never asked.
- Have you already hard some foreign version of "For A Moment" ?
No, I haven´t. We usually only watch the English version since I'm half American.
- What Disney princess, or character, would you have liked to dub ? What's your dream character to dub ?
Hm, I think Princess Jasmin from „Aladdin“ I absolutely love the songs of that movie! My dream character? Some really successful movie like „Frozen“ where I get to sing amazing songs.
- What's your favourite Disney movie and Disney song ?
I still love Cinderella and Peter Pan. I was obsessed with Ariel as a child, but I think I watched it too many times, haha.. My favorite song is „A whole new world“ and „Beauty and the beast“ by Celine Dion and Luther Vandross.
- What are you doing today, and what are your projects ? :)
I still work as a voice over speaker/singer in English and German and get to sing for several projects. I also released my solo album in 2013 and have been busy working on my own music, performing, etc. Last year I was part of „The Voice“ (of Germany) which was also a lot of fun!
