Personal Quotes (2)

[on being the voice of Violet for The Incredibles] I really loved that whole experience, I loved every part of it. I learned so much about that whole process of how those movies get made and the lighting and the music and the technology.
[on voicing Violet Parr for the first Incredibles movie] The character I played had really long flowing hair and at that point the technology wasn't there to make that girl's hair, and so almost until the end, my character in all the versions I saw up until it was done was bald, because there was this team of guys up in a room somewhere working on her hair, and every so often the producer would go up there and ask 'How's the hair going guys?' and they were still like, 'The hair is still theoretical.' I mean, it was it was it was just such an amazing thing to be part of and to watch them work because I don't really have coworkers in my job.
