I don't understand why they increase the pitch so much. I've heard Melissa Rauch in interviews and I think her normal voice sounds much better.



What do you think?

Melissa said in an interview that she patterns Bernadette's voice after her mother. The way she said it made it sound like it was her choice, not the producers.

I believe it is definitely an acting/character choice, from what she said in that interview.

Does/did Mellisa Raunch actually provide Mrs Wolowitz's voice, or is she just imitating it after the event ?

No a different actress does Mrs Wolowitz. Forgot her name, but she has been there since the early episodes.

She does not perform Mrs. Wolowitz's voice--there's a different actress that has performed that role from the beginning. I forget her first name but I think her last name is Susi. You can see it in the end credits in episodes with her voice.
Melissa Rauch just does a great imitation of her. :)

Carol Ann Susi. This is her in an episode of Seinfeld:

I think the high pitch voice of Melissa Rauch is suitable for the character of Bernadette. Bernadette is like a young girl in this show and I think Melissa did it on purpose just to give more character and it works. I find it cute actually. :icon_lol:

I can only stand her voice for so long. I'm glad she's not on for an hour. I would be crazy to marry someone with a voice that gets my dog's attention.

So much for your dog's attention :lol: well get the dog into the kennel, when she is on, for its own sake...

Exactly. It's not her own choice to sound like a Chippendale cartoon character in adfdition they use a device to overspeed her lines.

If you listen with care at times her lines are faster and broken up (almost not grasping what she is saying) and other times she sounds more normal. Yes she is very good at making funny voices and creepy too ;)

No, she chose the character voice from the time she auditioned for the role.  She said it's based on her mother's voice.

Where do you get the idea that they use a device on her lines?

People have seen her in the live tapings and no one has ever mentioned--nor has she, when asked about her voice on the show--that there's any such tampering going on.  They wouldn't bother doing something like that where they had to tweak every line a certain actor says.

I don't know what the h$$$ you're talking about.  I've never heard her lines as being speeded up or whatever.  I think you're completely wrong.

What a lame thing to say that her mother has a voice like Chippendale cartoon character in real life, if was me I'd keep it to myself :ph34r:
