As a young actress, Michelle Lagumen wong started her Hollywood career in the top-rated show “E.R.,” and other cameo roles on TV followed.
But her biggest break comes through in Universal Pictures’ “Abominable,” the highest-grossing original animated film of the year in the U.S., and she’s part of the main cast.
Michelle says finding her true calling as a voice-over talent was a gift.
“I’ve always wanted to be an actor, since I was a kid, but when I left school — I went to school at Carnegie Mellon University — I came out really with the intention of doing on-camera only. But people have always said, ‘Oh, you have a really great voice and you should do voiceovers.’ But I didn’t know anything about how to get into it, it’s not really something you learn in school and it’s not something that people talk about. So I just kind of got lucky of through a series of events of meeting different people who sort of ferried me into the world of voiceover. And maybe about five or six years ago I started to really pursue it seriously. With an agent and with auditioning and really trying to pursue voiceover jobs. And then I kind of just fell into it, and I love it. I love it so much.”
