Thank you so much George! I'm a huge Resi fan of the original magic three and this was very gratifying to hear Jill again after all these years. Wow she really has no idea how big an impact she had on the series! Looking forward to pouring over this community looks fab.

Great interview GT, it was interesting to hear the recording process and to learn that she voiced Jean Grey from the 90's X-Men cartoon.

I honestly thought it was the same voice actress from the first RE so she did a great job imitating the 1st voice actress's voice.

It's a shame that whoever dealt with hiring English voice actors didn't feel the need to get back in touch with Catherine Fisher but unfortunately you hear these stories too often in the voice acting industry. There's been quite a few different voice actresses that have voiced Jill.

Anyway, she did a great job voicing Jill Valentine (Y)

That was awesome GT. It is fascinating to hear her talk about how she has no idea how iconic her character has become. I wonder if she has even played through the game? Did she not she the movies with Sienna dressed in the mini skirt? Its a shame that she didn't get another chance to portray Jill. I think she did a really good job.

Awesome Interview. Well done.

It's sucks when you realize that Capcom doesn't even consider asking these voice actors back because I've noticed that all three you've interviewed so far said they would happily do it so they're not the problem.

I still find Catherine to be Jill's best VA. Shame we had to lose her (although PJL was the next best thing and we don't even have her anymore).

I finally got around to listening to this. Great interview, GT.
I'm glad that Catherine Disher agreed to this and took the time to talk about her work and her experience with the production of RE3. I especially liked her "hiiiiyah!" btw.

This interview was outstanding I really enjoyed it a lot this interview brought back multiple memories and the feelings were very Nostalgic from the sounds of the dead when you go into the city and as you progress through the game the sounds of the dead seem to cease. This interview also reminded me of how outstanding it was creating your own ammunition and also not knowing when nemesis was going to show up. Again George Trevor and Catherine Disher thank you so much for taking time from their busy schedules to make this interview happen it was extravagant and extraordinary looking forward to future interviews.

I missed this interview the first time around, and have just found it, after listening to the Ed Smaron interview. I am amazed how much personal information Catherine was able to recount, which made for an even more fascinating interview than I was already expecting! Thank you CHE for another superb interview.

I am extremely grateful to the Crimson Head Elder team for this hugely insightful interview. As a huge fan of survival horror Resident Evil 3 holds a special place in my heart, and Catherine's portrayal of Jill Valentine is by far the best in the series. Great exclusive to listen to, I hope there are more of these interviews from the first three games in the series.

Thank you very much for making this true. I have waited a lot for this interview and finally is here. I love RE3 and my beloved Jill Valentine. This game introduced me to the RE world and even now I can't stop playing it, it's just excellent and very well done. Catherine Disher is my favorite voice actress for Jill, She really emphasized her attitude and spirit. Years have passed now and she, along with Alyson Court, are the most memorable and remarkable voices from the saga. Thanks again for this interview! Greetings from Mexico
