With fair warning to mild story spoilers as you enjoy watching Siege this weekend on Netflix, voice actress Linsay Rousseau shared her thoughts in a recent interview about Elita-1’s role in this chapter and relationship with Optimus Prime & the rest of the Autobots.
“In my personal opinion, she taught Optimus everything he knows. She is a soldier, she is a powerful warrior, she truly cares about her people, about the other Autobots and about protecting them, and she has just spent her entire life fighting to protect people from the Decepticons.”
Rousseau’s thoughts on finally performing a character with its own action figure:
“I remember talking to people when I got into voiceover. I was like, ‘You know what? My life will be complete
the day I have an action figure.’ And it’s just of those lofty dreams…. [Now] I can point to something and be like, ‘That’s me…’ It really is kind of surreal to be able to look at something and see that that is a representation of something that you’ve done.”
