Speaking to Soap Opera Digest in a new interview, Camryn admitted that she sure had a lot of fun with this project. She said, “For me, it was just kind of living out these childhood dreams. I mean, my family made such a big deal out of Christmas and really went [all out]. I grew up watching stop-motion specials, so this kind of checked every box for me: Disney, Christmas, stop-motion, Mrs. Claus. I don’t think it can get better than that!”

Camryn and Brock were also asked how they met and it seems like sparks began to fly soon after Brock met Camryn over another shared project. He said, “We met over Camryn’s pursuit of voice-over and then getting to work together in that capacity. We were introduced by Bill Farmer, who was my mentor and voices Goofy for Disney.”

Camryn added, “Who I knew growing up! Being on a soap, your schedules are crazy, so when you’re looking to kind of branch out, voice work was the one thing that I kind of always wanted to do. Actually, Bryton [James, Devon] is the one who, for years, had been telling me, “You gotta get into voice-over. You’d be so good.” And then in 2020, I was like, “2020 is going to be my year!” I finally was like, “You know what? I’m gonna do voice-over.” And that’s how we met.”

When asked which Disney character she most identifies with, Camryn said, “Jack Skellington. I have Nightmare Before Christmas lyrics tattooed on my side. I love that movie so much. People think I’d choose Sally, but no, it’s Jack Skellington, 1,000 percent. What about you?”

Meanwhile, Brock added, “That’s a really tough question for me because I get to voice Disney characters and create new ones, so I’m always thinking about this question. Most likely, Genie from Aladdin is who I relate to the most.”
