    • Poocus asked Samantha a question

      Hello Samantha, My daughter introduced me to RWBY and now fans What did you do to voice a strong character driven not by romance but focus' on relationships with friends not beaus?

      Answered: Mar 17, 2016

      Fortunately, it's all there in the text of my script. The lines and actions that Nora has, are driven by loyalty to her teammates and friends. She has overcome obstacles and she is incredibly strong and yet still has a child-like playfulness to her which gives her layers and gives me more to play with when it comes to inflections and emotions; I can move up and down the scale when I am in the booth playing Nora.

      So much about RWBY is about the friendships between the characters. I think it is so important that more and more stories feature three dimensional female characters where their objective is more than just a love interest. The more power we give to women in stories the more influence we give to younger generations that we are all equal in this world.

      How have your interactions with the RT community benefited or helped you out? And how would you rate your experience in working with RT over the years?

      Answered: Mar 16, 2016

      Like with any community you meet all kinds of people. And most of my interaction has been very positive with the RT Community. I especially love RTX, because I meet a lot of encouraging people and it makes me feel inspired and humbled. And when RT fans get excited about other projects I work on outside of RT, it makes me want to put more and more content out there.

      Working with Rooster Teeth has changed over the years. It's weird to think its actually only gotten better. But back in the day, in 2011, it was awesome! So imagine a job ONLY getting better through the years, its pretty ideal. I've met and made a lot of creative and super fun friends through this production company, I've worked with professional and kind crews on set and I've collaborated on great projects that are enjoyed by so many people.


      I feel pretty lucky :)

      What was it like to work with monty oum

      Answered: Mar 4, 2016

      Wonderful. Down right wonderful. He was so incredibly encouraging, involved with any thought or idea you had and if you made him laugh, it was just the best feeling.


      One of the best human beings I have ever met and I am so grateful to remember such amazing memories of him.

      Did you know that half of the world wipes sitting down while the other wipes standing up, and neither of them know each other existed?

      Do you believe that Sonic The Hedgehog is faster than The Roadrunner?

      Answered: Mar 4, 2016

      What about Poe Dameron, the fastest pilot in the galaxy???

    • dandytaz asked Samantha a question

      Do you have any voice acting or just acting roles that you would consider dream roles?

      Answered: Mar 4, 2016

      Personally just working with a great team and an interesting script is a dream to me.

      But really thinking about it, I would love to be a regular on a series. You get to be that character for a long time and they develop and change over time which is how we work as humans. I would love to be on a show like Parks and Recreation, The Office and on the other side of the spectrum shows like True Detective (first season *cough cough*) or The Walking Dead. Characters evolved no matter how long or how little time we had with them. And every character was honest in the situation they were put in and made us truly believe. Which is what I want to do :)

    • Dracognia94 asked Samantha a question

      So far you've dazzled us with your amazing acting; is there any chance you'll branch out to other creative aspects such as say writing or directing?

      Answered: Mar 1, 2016

      Thank you so much for saying that! My degree concentration is actually in directing which is something that I am branching into more this year as well as producing.


      I feel like I have a lot of great ideas and know one when I see one. However writing these ideas down is a challenge for me. I love a collaborating environment and when I'm in a room with other creatives having a voice, I can honestly say some of my best work comes from that.

    • Emty asked Samantha a question

      Did you read for any characters other than Nora in RWBY? Any character you'd have really loved to try playing?

      Answered: Mar 1, 2016

      I actually heard about RWBY from actors in the area. I became instantly interested. I reached out to my friend Brandon Farmihini (in Live Action) to see if there were any characters I could possibly audition for. I was then sent a picture of Nora and her character descriptions and not too long after I was auditioning for Kerry, Monty and Miles. The audition consisted the first scene we ever see Nora, singing "It's morning!" to Ren and their interaction with one another.


      I felt really great about the audition, it was just too much fun! I didn't hear back after the audition for awhile, until Christmas Day. I was heading to my sisters for Christmas dinner and I had a missed call and voicemail from Miles saying I got the role. Needless to say it was a pretty awesome Christmas.


      Long winded answer, I only read for Nora. And from a previous question, Cinder would be a great role to play.

    • Dresden asked Samantha a question

      Do you prefer Live action or voice acting roles?

      Answered: Mar 1, 2016

      I love them both! However I am more trained in the world of acting than VO. But any opportunity to work in a great production is always what I am striving to do, whether thats in front of the camera or in front of the mic.

    • papajohn56 asked Samantha a question

      Are there any other characters from RWBY or RvB that you'd want to voice for a day?

      Answered: Mar 1, 2016

      I would LOOOOVE to play a villain. Cinder from RWBY is someone I would want to voice for sure, I think it would be wicked awesome.

      I have finished another chapter in my RWBY side story. Things will start to get a little more interesting now as the battle heats up. As always, the story is completely uncontroversial with the main story. Its in my journals right now, give it a read if you like. This invitation is open to anyone else who reads this comment as well.

      newer version
      I am interested in providing Monty and the rest of Team RWBY, with ideas and was wondering if you could recommend me. I am putting one of my earlier ideas below. Tell me if it is any good.
      This is the updated version
      A guy named Lan Jingshen, he uses a pair of long nun chucks with guns at the ends, the nun chucks can connect into a staff, and when connected the guns gain more fire power and can fire in the directions the tips are pointing at. Also it can become a bow if he bends the chains at the right angles. However, his true forte is hand to hand combat. He has high mastery of Aura (Meditates daily to train his Aura), his semblance is manipulation of pure energy, and when using his full strength, blue lines cover his entire body and he gains enhanced abilities. He has messy black hair with azure highlights, wears a pair of glasses that change into a mask when he begins combat, has a blue and black trench coat along with a pair of black pants with two blue steaks running down the sides, and when fighting takes off the coat in this case he wears a blue and black tank top, Also wears black gloves. Height wise he would be a bit taller than Yang. Body is covered with scars of various shapes and sizes due to his frequent fights with High level Grimm. Large tattoo on his back (I’ll send you a rough sketch of it if you like the character). His combat style is formless, and draws from a myriad of martial arts styles. He also has a pet Golden Retriever, the golden retriever enjoys stealing other people’s laundry, and always tries to kiss up to people.
      I would also like to put in his personality in case it is (and some back story too). A calm cool guy, who's always the peacemaker, and is very devoted to whatever he sets his mind to, he would also be very learned, polite, and versatile ( able to use most weapons if necessary) Doesn't speak very loudly, and is sometimes ignored. Very good at making friends and is rather social, in a detached way ( but although there are many who he calls friend, before he met team RWBY there were none he truly believed to be his friend, except his master). Believes that the best way for a person to become stronger and learn is for them to experience things themselves, so he often keeps knowledge to himself, even if it would be beneficial for the other person to know. He is wise far beyond his years, one of the main reasons he came to Beacon was to find that “special someone†his grandpa always told him about. I think it would be humorous if he developed a crush on Yang, and as a result becomes very awkward and a bit clumsy whenever she is near. He also trains in a lot of his spare time in fact his daily regime is kill 10 powerful Grimm a day. Back story is that he woke up by the sea when he was 4 with no memory, he is found by the nearby villagers and is taken care of, during this time he almost lived in local library, and educated himself there. He later meets a man who would become his teacher; a white tiger Faunus named Brom Silverfang, who was a founding member of White Fang, but left after some of the organizations more brutal operations. Lan makes his nun chuk/staff/ gun from parts found in a dump in a city he travels to. He also learns a variety of skills on his travels (cooking, clothes making, engineering, zoology, etc.) but has almost zero pop culture knowledge. During his travels, he joined White Fang for a few months and also was employed by the Schnee company for a few years (currently owns some of its high value stocks), in both cases he learned many of the secrets in both organizations. He also has experience in the underground crime world (learning the ways of the street). I think it would also be fun if at one point he encountered Yang and Ruby before they were adopted, because this could help them connect later in. Later in his travels with his master (when he is around 15) he discovers an ancient piece of technology called INDEX, and after gaining more mastery of his AURA he uses INDEX as a base to create a weapon called the ERUDITE ARMORY, which can transform into any weapon he knows how to make (able to fill the sky with a menagerie of different armaments). It is very heavy and difficult to use so he doesn't use it often, because of the massive amount of aura it consumes while in use. His master is later killed by a giant Grimm know as Shade the Eighth Terror (Shade cannot be harmed by purely physical attacks, and that is all Brom had , even though they were super powerful physical attacks that were able to cleave mountains), but by that time Lan was skilled enough to kill it with his Aura infused ERUDITE ARMORY. When the Shade died, part of its essence infected Lan, and slowly eats away at his soul, because of this his AURA was greatly weakened and now can only use the ERUDITE ARMORY for 30 seconds a day. However, Brom’s soul entered into Lan as well and helps him keep SHADE at bay (the downside is Lan now has the crazy, perverted old man yammering at him 24/7). Was noticed by BEACON and gained a combat scholarship just like RUBY after saving a group of elite hunters from high class monsters (this was before he battled with the SHADE, which took place 3 months before he was going to transfer to BEACON). Currently he is much weakened due to the SHADE’s essence infecting him (sometimes causing to lose control of himself and turning into a half-Grimm state), his current combat ability (without using the armory) is slightly higher than Pyrrha’s. Right now is trying to control the Grimm inside.
      He is 17 or 18 years old.

      So yeah, I want to apologize for the "momentary rage" that I felt towards RT from not being able to watch the "Live Feeds" of RTX on UTube. Being that I am stuck in Ky and unable to attend due to my work schedule and as I tried to watch it, it said "We are exp. tech. diff. at this time". And, for a moment I wanted to rage on the comments sections about my slight inconvenience in said matter. Then I realized, In the middle of my drunken stupor, that I was over 19 hours late for the Live Stream. So whether or not that it matters, I'll apologize to you and every one for every stupid comment on here or YouTube that may have resulted from "stupid people being stupid". Sincerely AssaultPickle77

      So awesome that we got to see CT again in Episode 17! It was so great to her/your voice after all that time. You helped make CT one of my favorites. Personally, I thought she had the best ability too. smiley1.gif

      I got say, you did a hell of a good job at acting. C.T has been my favorite since her first introduction. It's depressing knowing she died like that. I'm glad your her actor, and hope to see flashbacks of C.t later this season. If not then I'm just happy you voiced her. :)

      Samantha, there are some aspiring filmmakers and animators who are in desperate need of funding or the project they are working on will be shut down. Could you please check it out and possibly consider donating. I may not be part of that group, but I have committed myself to spread the news to as many people as possible as soon as possible, in hopes that these people may be able to make something that everyone can enjoy and that they can be proud of.
      Thanks.

    Fortunately, it's all there in the text of my script. The lines and actions that Nora has, are driven by loyalty to her teammates and friends. She has overcome obstacles and she is incredibly strong and yet still has a child-like playfulness to her which gives her layers and gives me more to play with when it comes to inflections and emotions; I can move up and down the scale when I am in the booth playing Nora.

    So much about RWBY is about the friendships between the characters. I think it is so important that more and more stories feature three dimensional female characters where their objective is more than just a love interest. The more power we give to women in stories the more influence we give to younger generations that we are all equal in this world.


    Like with any community you meet all kinds of people. And most of my interaction has been very positive with the RT Community. I especially love RTX, because I meet a lot of encouraging people and it makes me feel inspired and humbled. And when RT fans get excited about other projects I work on outside of RT, it makes me want to put more and more content out there.

    Working with Rooster Teeth has changed over the years. It's weird to think its actually only gotten better. But back in the day, in 2011, it was awesome! So imagine a job ONLY getting better through the years, its pretty ideal. I've met and made a lot of creative and super fun friends through this production company, I've worked with professional and kind crews on set and I've collaborated on great projects that are enjoyed by so many people.


    I feel pretty lucky :)

    Wonderful. Down right wonderful. He was so incredibly encouraging, involved with any thought or idea you had and if you made him laugh, it was just the best feeling.


    One of the best human beings I have ever met and I am so grateful to remember such amazing memories of him.

    What about Poe Dameron, the fastest pilot in the galaxy???

    Personally just working with a great team and an interesting script is a dream to me.

    But really thinking about it, I would love to be a regular on a series. You get to be that character for a long time and they develop and change over time which is how we work as humans. I would love to be on a show like Parks and Recreation, The Office and on the other side of the spectrum shows like True Detective (first season *cough cough*) or The Walking Dead. Characters evolved no matter how long or how little time we had with them. And every character was honest in the situation they were put in and made us truly believe. Which is what I want to do :)

    Thank you so much for saying that! My degree concentration is actually in directing which is something that I am branching into more this year as well as producing.


    I feel like I have a lot of great ideas and know one when I see one. However writing these ideas down is a challenge for me. I love a collaborating environment and when I'm in a room with other creatives having a voice, I can honestly say some of my best work comes from that.

    I actually heard about RWBY from actors in the area. I became instantly interested. I reached out to my friend Brandon Farmihini (in Live Action) to see if there were any characters I could possibly audition for. I was then sent a picture of Nora and her character descriptions and not too long after I was auditioning for Kerry, Monty and Miles. The audition consisted the first scene we ever see Nora, singing "It's morning!" to Ren and their interaction with one another.


    I felt really great about the audition, it was just too much fun! I didn't hear back after the audition for awhile, until Christmas Day. I was heading to my sisters for Christmas dinner and I had a missed call and voicemail from Miles saying I got the role. Needless to say it was a pretty awesome Christmas.


    Long winded answer, I only read for Nora. And from a previous question, Cinder would be a great role to play.

    I love them both! However I am more trained in the world of acting than VO. But any opportunity to work in a great production is always what I am striving to do, whether thats in front of the camera or in front of the mic.

    I would LOOOOVE to play a villain. Cinder from RWBY is someone I would want to voice for sure, I think it would be wicked awesome.

    I like to wear dresses, if the weather permits. Makes me feel like I am wearing a combat skirt :) And I need to wear flat shoes, no heels, so I can move easier and feel more grounded. And after doing vocal warm-ups I always sing "I'm queen of the castle, I'm queen of the castle!" on the car ride over, always fun to see people's reactions when I'm at a stop light.

    Looking back on CT, I was completely new to Voice Acting. So that alone was a challenge. And being new and only in the world of RvB for so long, was a bit intimidating. I loved the struggle that CT was facing. It was cool to dig deep into her vulnerability though having to be "tough" in the freelancer agent world was a neat balance to work with. She was desperate for justice and she was in love which are some of the strongest human emotions to experience and can bring out the fragility in us all. Her story was awesome and I miss playing her so much.


    Nora on the other hand who I've been playing now for three years and hopefully for more years to come, she is just a fireball of energy and "badass-ery". Working in a higher register and yet exploring all the animalistic tones she can have while fighting and then bringing an almost child-like nature to it is just WAAAY too fun. My energy in life is a lot like Nora's at times so sometimes it just feels like breathing. And I can only hope the future of Nora will bring even more levels to her character and I pray I will bring those out in my voice work :)


    Great question, thank you for reaching out Arkoshiper2016! #RvB #RWBY

    I wish! And thank you so much! Coincidentally my husband and I got pregnant after "Slow Mo Love" was shown and I thought it would have been funny to play off of that and do a Part 2.


    Keep an eye out for the most recent RT Short, "Tinder Trouble" premiering at 11am today for the public!
