Last year, at Denver Comicon, I answered a question from a young woman who was having a hard time at school, because kids were being cruel to her. She asked me if I was ever called a “nerd” when I was in school, and how I handled it. Here’s my answer:
This seems to be going viral today, and made it to the top of the front page of Reddit yesterday, where her mother commented:
Hello! Funny thing, I was named after your character Wesley Crusher. Recently I came out as transsexual to my parents (I'm on MtF hormone replacement therapy atm). They have taken it very hard. One thing they have been on about is my name. I'm a HUGE geek and they are trying to pull the 'you won’t be Wesley, you won’t be nerdy' card. It’s bogus obviously, but now I'm thinking of names a lot. Is Lesley a nice name? Or is there another super awesome whole new girl name I should consider. Thoughts?
Oh, you’re going to love this!! Wesley was originally going to be a female character, and her name was … wait for it … Lesley! So, yeah, I think Lesley is a perfect name.
I hope your transition goes well, and know that, even if it’s hard for them, your parents love you.
I just wanted to say thanks for sticking around and not giving up. You and Felicia Day are really great together professionally, and I really hope your career can pick up. Earlier though, you mentioned that you don't don't think animated is sub-par to live action. Would you want to become a regular voice actor?
I am a regular voice actor! I get to work all the time with some of the best in the business on shows like Ben Ten, Teen Titans, and Batman. In years past I’ve worked on Legion of Superheroes, Zeta Project, Naruto, and Kurokami.
But what I really want to work on is Adventure Time.
