In this episode of Stories of the Magic, I have the pleasure of sharing with you part 2 of my interview with Laura Dickinson. Laura is best known for her extensive work as a series regular on the Emmy award-winning Phineas and Ferb. She’s also featured on the show’s five chart-topping soundtrack albums, and the Disney Channel original movie Phineas and Ferb: Across the Second Dimension. Laura is the singing voice of Tori Spelling’s pirate princess and several other characters on Jake and the Neverland Pirates, and she recently began working as a recurring vocalist and vocal contractor on Disney Channel’s newest animated movie and series, Sofia the First, set to air in fall 2012 and early 2013 respectively.
In Part 2, Laura talks about:
- What she’s working on now, including one project that she’s beyond excited about (it made her cry with joy!);
- Her other current work for Disney, on the Disney Channel and beyond;
- Her extensive work outside of Disney, including an upcoming theater show in San Diego, CA;
- Her dream project at Disneyland later this year (here’s hoping on this one!);
- Laura’s favorite things she’s done for Disney and a couple of most memorable events;
- The job she would most like to do for Disney;
- Her suggestions to help theme park guests enjoy the live entertainment;
- What she doesn’t get asked (but did today!);
- What inspires her;
- Her advice to you for following your dreams, especially in the face of setbacks.
Also hear Laura sing Little Brothers, from Phineas & Ferb.
This is the video Laura mentioned in the interview from New Year’s Eve.
