Principal Cast for the Pilot

Finally! I can tell somebody…

Principal Voice Cast for the Pilot!

We now have six voice actors confirmed for the pilot episode, who will play
the six series regular characters who appear in the pilot (Georgiana, Hiromi,
Rob, Tim, Josh, and Anya — in order of apperance):

Rob will be played by William Roberts.

Hiromi will be played by Karrie Shirou.

Georgiana will be played by our daughter Ariel after all (we reviewed auditions
from a few adult actresses to be sure this is what we wanted to do —
they were good, but a real child’s voice sounds much better, and Ariel
did quite well on the audition).

Tim will be played by Lex Quarterman.

Josh will be played by Paul Birchard.

and

Anya will be played by Veronika Kurshinskaya.

More details are included on the download site.

We are continuing to review auditions for the two other principals (Allen
and Sarah who will first appear in episodes 2 and 3, respectively), as
well as for supporting roles. Probably next is deciding who will play
“Sergei”, Anya’s brother, who is the cosmonaut/shuttle pilot on the trip
to the Moon in the pilot episode. His role in the pilot might be called
a “guest star” appearance, since he plays a prominent part, even though
he doesn’t become a regular character (we might bring him back later,
though).

We’ll be posting a public cast announcement over the
weekend, probably, but I wanted to make sure our very patient
pre-production backers got the news first! 😀

Other progress

We are of course, still working on the pre-production materials. I’ve
decided to stop making any promises on delivery date and just tell you
what I’ve already done. I have for example, finished the final character
lineup poster (Daniel Fu decided he’d prefer to work on the drawing a
little more, so we went through another revision). It’s going to look
like the picture below.
