Marisha Ray talks The Legend of Vox Machina season 2
Speaking to Looper, Ray would explain how the opportunity to evolve Keyleth as a character is something that she explored as the team prepared to produce season 2.
“The beauty about knowing these characters and having embodied these characters for three, four, five years is that we know them so deeply through and through. And then we’re also EPs on this project, so we can bring exactly what we want out of these characters onto the screen. For me, so much of Keyleth is about her journey and showing her grow as a person. I’m so excited to bring that to a new audience.” – Marisha Ray, via Looper.
The actress would add with The Gamer how “In the campaign she [Keyleth] was able to have her journey span over hundreds of hours. So when transitioning into this animated adaptation one of the most difficult things I had to adjust to, even in my performance, is fast tracking her journey since we just don’t have enough time.”
“Still, it’s amazing to watch her transition into confidence, being a leader, and to really be the moral compass who keeps these murder hobos on rails.” – Marisha Ray, via The Gamer.
Interestingly, Ray would show support for fellow RPG-animated adaptations, not wanting to ‘pull the ladder up’ behind the Vox Machina series.
“We thoroughly believe that the more systems, the more RPGs that are out there, the more variety that people have to choose from, that only strengthens the entire community,” said Ray.
“It’s important to have an environment that does allow these creators; independent, big, small, to create and make new things. Whichever way allows the community to do that, that’s where we’re going to stand and support. We’re never going to forget our roots.” – Marish Ray, via Gizmodo.
The Legend of Vox Machina season 2 is now streaming on Amazon Prime Video, with episodes 7-9 set to release on February 3 followed by episodes 10-12 on February 10.
