Re: Mulgrew lends voice to geo-centrism?

I didn't have any idea that such things as geocentrists existed ! Wow, really !

Mind you, I know for a fact that the Earth is flat...

Re: Mulgrew lends voice to geo-centrism?

I understand being a voice-for-hire, but none of the words on the page she was reading caught her attention at the time? How can she be misled if she had the entire script right there in front of her? That sounds more like a backpedal.

Ditto. I'd never even heard of geocentrism until this.

Mind you, I do know where there be dragons

Her script may have only been the lines she was to record. Unless you have a copy of those words, or have already seen the film, it sounds like you're making a conclusion without all the facts.

Re: Mulgrew lends voice to geo-centrism?

Given some of the half-assed things Kate said in Voyager while playing Janeway, how is anything she says in this film any different?

Just a paying gig, no big deal.

Re: Mulgrew lends voice to geo-centrism?

This sort of thing has happened to other performers, where the work they thought they were doing wound up be used in a way they were unaware of. There have been other cases of actors recording narration that was used to promote an idea or individual they did not themselves support. Worst case situations include actors finding that a scene they filmed for one project, might wind up in something entirely different, like a porno film.

What a disgusting trailer. "Opinions" of fundamentalist loons mixed with real science soundbites to make it sound more believable. Sickening.

I don't know how bad she needed the money, but I wouldn't want to be paid for something like this. I'd feel dirty.

Re: Mulgrew lends voice to geo-centrism?

She wrote this on her TotallyKate Facebook today. It's in quotation marks so I think its her words. Kate isn't a dumbass people...plus considering the documentary is affiliated with ardent Republicanism (according to another article I read) and she herself has stated time and time again her Democratic views I wouldn't take the fact that she did a voice gig to mean she believes the stuff.

I want to say too that I work at a web company and I do voice acting at work all the time. Most of the stuff I am paid to say is utter crap. But it's my job. I do think that in this instance she could have asked more deeply about the documentary. But she was only a voiceover.

I have personally done voiceover work for my company without having a damn clue what they were for. I would just read the lines in the way I was told and that was that.

"I understand there has been some controversy about my participation in a documentary called THE PRINCIPLE. Let me assure everyone that I completely agree with the eminent physicist Lawrence Krauss, who was himself misrepresented in the film, and who has written a succinct rebuttal in SLATE. I am not a geocentrist, nor am I in any way a proponent of geocentrism. More importantly, I do not subscribe to anything Robert Sungenis has written regarding science and history and, had I known of his involvement, would most certainly have avoided this documentary. I was a voice for hire, and a misinformed one, at that. I apologize for any confusion that my voice on this trailer may have caused. Kate Mulgrew"

Damn. I was carefully constructing a statement of my own upholding and sexifying her newly disclosed geocentrism and now it turns out my spin is for naught!

Well this is one way to boost a person's public profile.

Saw it on my Facebook news feed as trending. You know a person has hit the big time, or messed up horribly, when something they've done trends on the F-book.
