WandaVision Mystery: Grey DeLisle-Griffin Joins Cast
WandaVision is less than two weeks away, and the excitement for the new series is starting to build. After all, the last time we visited the Marvel Cinematic Universe was when 2019’s Spider-Man: Far From Home was released in theaters (and oh how glorious that was). And now, ahead of the show’s January 15, 2021, release date, another prolific actress has announced she is part of the cast.
Grey DeLisle-Griffin Joins WandaVision Cast
On New Year’s Day, the American voice actress Grey DeLisle-Griffin confirmed that she would appear in WandaVision on Disney+. And it looks like her part will be a voice role.
DeLisle-Griffin took to Twitter on January 1, 2021, to let fans know that her voice is appearing in the upcoming MCU series, tweeting, “My voice is in [WandaVision].”
My voice is in this. ❤️ https://t.co/4LrBTwaVD4

Although we still don’t know what part she is playing, it hasn’t stopped people from speculating whether there will be an animated moment in the sitcom-fueled world of WandaVision. And what could that moment be? Hm…it looks like we have a mystery on our hands! Better get the gang together!
Who’s the Voice: Grey DeLisle-Griffin
DeLisle-Griffin is a prolific actress and singer-songwriter – with well over 1800 credits to her name. She has lent her voice-over talents to numerous animated projects and video games. Dedicated fans can find her work on shows produced by companies like Cartoon Network, PBS KIDS, Nick Jr., Disney Channel, and so on down the cable dial.
Her voice roles include Vicky from The Fairly OddParents, Sam Manson from Danny Phantom, Azula from Avatar: The Last Airbender, Lily, Lana, and Lola Loud from The Loud House, and Prince Puppycorn of Unikitty!
And jeepers! In perhaps her most well-known role, since 2000, the voice actress has also played Daphne Blake in the Scooby-Doo franchise. DeLisle-Griffin took over the part of Daphne for the late Mary Kay Bergman (who was a dear friend, and her animation voice-over teacher).
DeLisle-Griffin told Popdose.com that she had to be convinced to audition for Daphne, and it was a difficult decision for her. The actress had to be convinced by the late Bergman’s husband who said:
Grey, you have to do it because Mary Kay would’ve wanted you to do it. You were her star student, she loved you, and she would’ve wanted you to do Daphne. Somebody’s going to do it. It might as well be someone who loved her.
Grey DeLisle-Griffin’s Many Voices of Marvel
WandaVision is not the first time that DeLisle-Griffin will appear in a Marvel property. Not only has she voiced Captain Marvel and Janet Pym in Ultimate Avengers and Ultimate Avengers 2, but she has also voiced numerous other female superheroes in the Marvel video games.

Pop Dose Interview Excerpt About Playing The Wasp
I had to research the comic-book stuff because of being a girl. I hate to be so sexist because I know some girls love comics. And I like them now that I’ve done the research on them, but I thought, “I’ve got to read up on this stuff because I’ve got this part, and I’m not going to go up on the Comic-Con panel and just be a total idiot.”
What was funny, though, was that the first guy who was cast to play Nick Fury was so excited to play the part and so happy to be part of it, but he could not say “adamantium”! He just couldn’t say it! And you kind of have to know how to say it for that part. But he was, like, “Adaman…adaman…” I was, like, “Just think of the ’80s! Adam Ant. Adamantium.” And he’s, like, “Oh, okay…” But he still just couldn’t do it…and I just saw that part slip out of his fingers while we were there.
They kept correcting him and trying to re-do it, but then finally, everyone’s just, like, “That’s cool. No, it’s good, we’ll just keep going.” And I knew what was happening, and I went, “Oh, no!” And the next time I came back, that guy was, uh, not there anymore. My heart just broke because, seriously, nobody there was happier to be there than that guy. But, hey, it’s “Ultimate Avengers.” You’ve got to be able to say, “adamantium.” There’s no way around it. You’ve got to do it.
