We welcome actress Gina "G.K." Bowes on this spectacular episode of the Genre Savvy Podcast! G.K. has voiced numerous characters in film, television, and video games, and joins Genre Savvy host Philip for an hour-long chat about inspiration, dreams, life, and the world of voiceover! Having gotten her start as Kunoichi in Koei-Techmo's SAMURAI WARRIORS series, she went on to play the bow-wielding Sun Shangxiang, a.k.a. "The Bow Princess," in later DYNASTY WARRIORS titles. She's also starred in DURARARA x2, SOFIA THE FIRST, SPECIAL AGENT OSO, RUNE FACTORY, ALPHA AND OMEGA 2, and has recently worked on Disney Jr.'s DOC McSTUFFINS, METAL GEAR SOLID V: THE PHANTOM PAIN, and NORM OF THE NORTH.
We talk Disney's upcoming MOANA--and the quirks of being a Pacific Islander in Hollywood--plus: A discussion on family, favorite Disney Princesses, favorite Hogwarts House, and a mutual adoration of Disney's FROZEN! Also, if you could be the child of an Olympian god, who would it be? And do NOT miss our EPIC ROLEPLAY SEGMENT as we unveil a NEVER-BEFORE-HEARD sequence from MOANA, with G.K. Bowes starring (at least for the episode) as the titular heroine! This is a sound-out for Jamie Sparer Roberts, MOANA's casting director, to listen in for some casting inspiration!
