Who doesn’t love surprises? Well, I do. I love it when the unexpected happens when watching a television show or movie.
You may know that I am obsessed with Dash & Lily, and so I was pleasantly surprised when I heard a familiar voice when watching the Netflix series.
I the series you see a lot of references to a fake Pixar film entitled, Collation. The film is an animated office romance between a stapler and a blank sheet of paper. One that I would actually watch, if we’re being honest.
In the film, Lily, played by Midori Francis, frequently talks about the film and at one point in the film she quotes the highlighter, who says “Be Bold!”. The voice of the highlighter is Jane the Virgin star Gina Rodriguez.
“Brad Silberling, one of our producers who also directed the first two episodes, was also a producer and director on Jane the Virgin,” Executive Producer, Joe Tracz explained to TV Line about Gina’s involvement. “So he was like, ‘You know, I think I could get Gina to do it.’ He reached out her, she was like, ‘Totally!’ and she recorded a bunch of different takes of the line. It was so much fun to actually get to pay off one of these writers’ room jokes that we had.”
Love this! Have you watched Dash & Lily? What are your thoughts on the show?
