I'm glad ppl here actually have a brain. I don't get how some ppl can jump to conclusion when there literally isn't enough info to form an opinion. Did ppl seriously forgot what happened with Amber Heard? It wasn't that long ago smh.
Not really comparing apples to apples there. Hellena Taylor opening up about lackluster payment runs the risk of her losing potential VA opportunities in the future. She has a financial incentive to put her head down, go along with the previous 'scheduling issues' line, and look for work elsewhere. The financial (and arguably cultural) incentives leaned towards Heard cranking up the accusations to their furthest limit.
I get the impulse to demand a fuller story before weighing in, but it's easy to see why her claims sound believable.
VA opportunities in the future? When the last time she voice acted was for Bayonetta 8 years ago according to IMDb? And Bayonetta is the only "big franchise" she got a job with? U sure u know what ur talking about? Bcuz to me, it sounds like she's an amateur crying like a kid begging parents to buy a toy and throwing a fit when it doesn't go their way, just like most ppl nowadays. Now I'm being way too emotional and harsh here, and partially it's just sarcasm against ur reply. I understand the frustration and reality is harsh. This world isn't perfect, and I believe some jobs deserves more than what they are paid. But her response to this situation is unprofessional at best, such as claiming the new voice actor doesn't deserve Bayonetta lol as if it's her character right? And she owns the IP? Saying this 2 weeks before the release. Also claiming Bayonetta is some huge franchise with over 450m in revenue, lol idk where she got that from, and some people's response to this is silly. To me, it sounds like she is having financial struggles and just angry that Bayonetta which is presumably her biggest role didn't pay as she thought. Remember she voiced for Bayo 1 and 2, does that mean Bayo 3 was less than what was offered before? I doubt it. We literally don't know the whole situation like I said, so I'm not going to say more.
