There’s a lot of action in the movie, but what was it like for you getting physical in the recording booth?
It’s exhausting! In a good way. I’d come out of a two or three-hour session and the last hour would just be action cues. You feel exhausted, but once you see it all together, it becomes so cool and all the exertion and physical sounds you make really pay off. There are so many great action scenes in this movie, it wouldn’t have made any sense if I’d half-assed it, so it was worth it [Laughs].
Voiceover roles offer so much freedom for actors, but what about them do you find most rewarding as a performer?
I’m a singer, and I’m a singer first, so to get to focus solely on your voice and performance and to be free of all the inhibitions of your physical form is very freeing and very fun. It allows you to hone in and that was very special to me. That’s what I really love about getting to do this; it’s freeing. Also, I do lots of voices in my own life, so I can throw my voice very low or very high, so in the future (and I have in the past) do voices that sound nothing like me. Selina does a little, but you know what I’m saying, I’d love to just play around. You don’t really get to do that in real life because you can only take your physical form so far but in the recording booth, you can do anything.
You do such an awesome job with this character that I have to ask - how would you feel about playing a live-action Selina Kyle down the line?
Thank you! I’d love that. I’d absolutely love it. It’s so weird because I was Catwoman for Halloween like six months before I got offered this movie [Laughs] so I have the outfit. I can provide my own costume if they ask me! [Laughs] That would be a thrill. I would absolutely love it. Anything in the DC Universe, honestly. I’d even do more animation. I just had so much fun.
Without getting into spoilers, the stage is definitely set for a sequel down the line; if you do get the chance to return as Catwoman, what would you like to explore with the character?
I’d like to see her with Batman. I think that would be fun. She definitely is different around him, so that would show us a new side of her and a different side to what we’ve seen in this movie. I’d also like to see her up against a new slew of villains. There are so many different avenues to explore with her, I’d just look forward to those if we make more of these, so I’m game.
Many people will know you from Dynasty, of course, and that’s an iconic franchise in its own right, but did you ever have any nerves or reservations about joining a franchise as iconic as DC, especially when you know there’s a passionate fanbase involved?
It was announced after I’d completed the project, so what was done was done [Laughs]. I’d recorded the role and the movie was complete, so I’m hoping that everybody likes what I did and enjoy the film. Nobody so far I’ve seen is too disturbed I got cast in the role which is an excellent jumping-off point as everyone seems okay with me being Catwoman for this animated movie. I hope they love it and I think they will. My fans, I know, are so excited. It’s been incredible to see the DC fans come alive on Twitter and Instagram and to just watch them interact. It’s a whole new world for me.
