Soderbergh on Gina’s voice alternation work
In an interview for Vulture magazine, director Steven Soderbergh clarified on what went into altering Gina’s voice in Haywire:
That’s not really her speaking voice. We spent a lot of time in post working really hard on her voice, and we used every trick imaginable that’s used on records today — in the editing, in the pitch. We combined five different readings in one sentence. We wanted her to sound different — not like Gina, but like her character, Mallory Kane. So that took a lot of work, and we worked really hard on it. That was the point of it. Everyone under the age of 30 is terrified of Gina, but Mallory is someone new.
This perhaps extinguishes the rumors that her voice was replaced with that of another voice actress.
