Rachael MacFarlane is not just the younger sister of Fox’s billion dollar animation brain: Seth MacFarlane, she is one of the most accomplished voice-over actresses in Hollywood today. Currently she provides the voices for a multitude of animated characters including Hayley from American Dad; Mindy and Eris from the Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy; and #362 from Codename: Kida Next Door. Rachael has sung on many animated series including the voice of Barbra Streisand, Christina Aguilera, Madonna and Celine Dion among others.
In 1998 she joined the Cartoon Network as a PA, and was immediately tested as a voice over artist. Her first big role came during the first season of Family Guy – where she was cast as “Jennifer, the Cult Girl”. That triumph was quickly followed by roles in The Powder Puff Girls, Dexter’s Lab, and What’s New Scooby Doo? These all led up to her starring role as “Hayley” in American Dad.
And so Rachael MacFarlane has remained the “mystery girl’ behind the many animated voices for the beginning of her career – but that is soon to change in a big way. Concord Records is releasing her very first CD this year entitled: “Hayley Sings” – which contains songs that Hayley Smith will sing on the American Dad series, as well as songs that Hayley would choose to sing – given her character and personality on the show.
