Tara Strong Teases The ‘My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic’ Season Finale

Published May 11, 2013 by gossipzoo

Tara Strong

Today marks the season finale of The Hub’s My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic, and it’s literally a magical send-off! BFTV caught up with prolific voice actress Tara Strong, who voices the show’s main protagonist Twilight Sparkle, to preview the episode and discuss the epic My Little Pony fan base.

What makes today’s episode so great? “The ending’s pretty spectacular,” Tara explained. “[Twilight Sparkle] finally gets rewarded for her good deeds by this amazing growth and transformation.” It’s a plot development that was heralded by the special coronation concert that The Hub hosted last weekend, and celebrated by a My Little Pony marathon today, hosted by Miss America 2013 Mallory Hagan.

She added that the series is something that can be enjoyed by more than just young women. “When you first hear My Little Pony, you think it’s for little girls, but it’s not for little girls,” she added. “It’s literally a show families can sit down and watch. There’s nothing that you can say, ‘I’m not going to let my kid watch that.'”

Voicing Twilight Sparkle is one of many lines on Tara’s amazing resume, which also includes the likes of Rugrats, The Powerpuff Girls, The Fairly OddParents, and The Hub’s own Pound Puppies and Dan Vs. “I’ve been incredibly blessed. the roles that I’ve booked are just so iconic, like Batgirl, Harley Quinn and The Powerpuff Girls,” she reflected. “The list really goes on and sometimes I have to pinch myself. The sequel to Little Mermaid [The Little Mermaid 2: Return to the Sea] was my ultimate fangirl [moment]. When I was singing with Jodi Benson, I just burst into tears looking at her! I’m so lucky to have had this career.”

With hundreds of voices in her repertoire, that’s a tall order to keep straight, or avoid duplicating, but Tara explained how she keeps everything sorted. “I’m really conscientious about not doing the same voice on two different shows. I’m like ‘No, Timmy Turner lives with The Fairly OddParents.’ Even if you just tweak it a little, once you create a character, they sort of live in your brain [and] I don’t confuse them. I don’t mix them up. I know when I’m going somewhere, I become that character.”

Tara is one of the folks who is in the elite echelon of voiceover actors, including but not limited to the likes of Billy West (Futurama), Maurice LaMarche (Pinky and the Brain), Rob Paulsen (Animaniacs), John DiMaggio (Futurama), Grey DeLisle (Young Justice) and Tom Kenny (SpongeBob Squarepants). Asked to name one of her favorite voice actors, she said, “I did my very first job with Cree Summer. We loved each other then, and we still do now. We’ve worked together on many shows and she’s just so gifted. I consider her a sister really.

“We all do know each other, and we all get along,” she added. “I’m amazed daily in the studio.”

Check Out an Exclusive Clip from Tonight’s ‘Necessary Roughness’!

Published April 18, 2013 by gossipzoo

Necessary Roughness

Want an early look at tonight’s Necessary Roughness? Look no further.

In the clip below, TK (series star Mehcad Brooks) is looking to get his edge back after having successfully completed a rehab program. That leads him to something he probably never thought he’d do. Push play for a sneak peek.

Necessary Roughness is also making headlines tonight as the show is set to address the topic of gay players in football, when one of the Hawks comes out to Dr. Dani (series star Callie Thorne). The plotline is part of USA’s “Characters Unite” program to fight against hate and discrimination.

Meanwhile, Dr. Dani and her therapist (guest star Peter MacNicol, Numb3rs) discuss her mother, and Matt’s (series star Marc Blucas) love life improves. Is that related to the return of reporter Noelle Saris (guest star Michaela McManus, Law & Order: SVU), his former fling?

An all-new Necessary Roughness begins at 10 PM ET/PT only on USA.
