For the third installment of Warner Bros. Q&A series with the cast and crew of Green Lantern: First Flight, Juliet Landau (best known for her role as Drusilla on Buffy the Vampire Slayer) talks about her role as the alien Labella in the film. She also touches on her experience in writing comic books and her other voice acting works in the DC Universe.
Do you have a preference for the type of characters you play?
I like playing all different kinds of characters. Each one is it’s own little puzzle. Aliens are fun because you have a lot of freedom. The voice of Labella just came to me when I read the pages in a kind of organic in a way. I immediately felt like she had to sound the way I played her. When I came in for looping (pick up sound work) Andrea Romano described my Labella sound as “honey-voiced.” I think that really captures it.
Tell us about Labella?
There was a lot of room for invention in this character, especially with the device they use with her. I don’t want to give it away, but she does go through a bit of torture and it causes a rift between Sinestro and Hal. I really liked the sexuality and the flirtatiousness of the character. She’s very different from any of the characters I’ve voiced on Justice League Unlimited or Ben 10: Alien Force – she’s a completely unique character.
