    Travis nailed the popularity question, this is like your college friends sitting around playing beer pong, they just happen to all be really talented creatively

  2. Sylvius the Mad says:

    Marisha’s reaction to that vegan question was perfect. She was offended in perfect Kentucky.

    • Joe C says:

      Marisha Ray being accused of being Vegan will get her kicked out of Kentucky she literally won’t be invited back to the BBQ.

    • kolosmenus says:

      To be fair, she does kind of give off massive vegan vibes to me. If I had to pick one vegan out of the group, I’d choose Marisha 9/10 times. The 1/10 would be Ashley

    • Sylvius the Mad says:

      @kolosmenus  I would have said Liam or Taliesin.

      Least likely is definitely Laura.

    • Alois Salt says:

      Yeah you are right, it’s so American to abuse innocent defenceless sentient beings.

    • Chad says:

      @Sylvius the MadLease likely is Travis but I see why you said Laura

  3. WooWaah! says:

    There is a distinct lack of Ashley Johnson which makes me believe she rolled a D1 for participation.

    • Mel Z says:

      She is staying out of the limelight due to the Brian Foster situation. Many of her top searches are likely about that and it would be unkind to go through her most searched questions right now. Wishing her peace, safety and healing 🙏

    • Mythic says:

      @Mel Z What’s going on with her & brian foster?

    • xander says:

      brain is hella abusive @Mythic

    • qualandrew201494 says:

      ​@MythicHes a creep and she got a restraining order.

    • Mads says:

      ​@Mythicshe got a restraining order against him bc she thought he was close to the edge and could murder her. He was kicked off the show and she has a restraining order against him

  4. nico says:

    it’s so sad to see marisha’s top questions her creative works are great and should be recognized

  5. nico says:

    wish ashley was there as well. i love it when the cast is complete they are so fun

    • G. F. S F55 says:


    • molly says:

      Yeah but I get why she’s not since the top searches right now are probably about her personal life

    • LOreg says:

      ​@molly they curate the questions they wouldn’t ever bring that up in this. More likely she was just unavailable

    • SLSBlerp says:

      @LOregI wouldn’t be surprised if she landed a guest role on Abbott Elementary based on Sam’s references. Reminded me of what they’d do when she was out for Blindspot

      Edit: then again, I don’t know when this was shot but I imagine I’m wrong given the strikes halting productions

    • Uria85 says:

      I wonder if she wasn’t there because of the actor strike. In case she was asked questions on older projects. Just a guess.

  6. Shotzy says:

    Not an interview I expected, but an instant view and like nonetheless

  7. WereDictionary says:

    “I can see him being charming if he never had to actually say anything” is such a perfect Taliesin-style insult.
    Also, 6’4″ is around 1,94 in meters.

  8. Pinkestpink says:

    I’m offended that people doesn’t ask how marisha organized her notes, thats the important question

  9. ElizaShakiraMassani says:

    Laura’s reaction when they called her the pretty one. “Oh pffft.” 😂😂😂

    • HitchhikersPie says:

      She knows it’s true, likewise Travis is the handsome one

    • rocco mars says:

      Of course, thats his wife 😂

    • Grzegorz D. says:

      There’s a lot of talent in that group, but Laura is probably the most accomplished. I’d be pissed if somebody reduced me to looks, but she’s a great sport.

    • HigglyBiggly says:

      ​@Grzegorz D.they’re literally all reducing each other to a simple thing in that bit… “jock, nerd, theater kid, goth, prom queen”

      If you got pissed that someone gave you a label, during a group joke where everyone is getting a label, you probably don’t have many friends.

    • Ewan Reilly says:

      @Grzegorz D.They mention that they’ve all been playing together for 10+ years in this. I think Sam is able to poke fun at Laura without her taking offense, and you shouldn’t be offended for her.

  10. Allie Kitaguchi says:

    my favorite thing about the critical role cast is that i can feel how much they love each other
