  • ‘Inside out’ actress Phyllis Smith is happy to have voiced ‘Sad’.

Phyllis Smith was delighted to have given her voice for the character of ‘Sad’ in the upcoming Pixar film ‘Inside Out’.

The upcoming Pixar film ‘Inside Out’ was screened at the Cannes Film Festival last month and is all set for its world premiere on the 19th of June. Before the world premiere Phyllis Smith sat down for a promotional interview in Toronto and shared how happy she was to have ironically voiced the character of ‘Sad’ in ‘Inside Out’. 

During the interview with TheStar the 65 year old Smith, mostly known for playing eccentric characters, shared hoe the animators made her character ‘Sad’ likely even though her role was about to cause depression in the young girl. Smith also shared how sadness is a necessary emotion but too much of it can be problematic. 

According to Smith her natural oddities were the main reason she was chosen for the part. Smith also shared how the character of Sadness grew with her throughout the making of the film and how delighted she would be if the movie helps people in tackling depression in a more fun way.

When asked if she would be okay being labelled as Sadness for the rest of her life, Smith replied she would feel great as it would bring happiness to others. Smith further revealed she maintained her persona of sadness throughout the production by looking at the real world news.  

‘Inside Out’ is an animated film which will show the five major emotions in a complicated 11 year old girl named Riley who starts going into depression as her memories are affected. The five emotions namely are ‘Joy’ played by Amy Poehler, ‘Anger’ played by Lewis Black, ‘Disgust’ played by Mindy Kaling, ‘Fear’ played by Bill Hader and ‘Sad’ played by Phyllis Smith.
