Megan Lynch is a singer and so much more. Her album, ‘Songs the Brothers Warner Taught Me’ has been a favourite of mine since I bought it. When we started to develop the idea for ‘Mind My Brains, Darling!’ it was the obvious choice for the soundtrack, and Megan graciously allowed us to use her music. And it fits beautifully, the songs ranging from upbeat to sultry, all delivered with passion by Megan.
Megan is an independent artist who recorded and produced her album herself, which is no mean feat. She is also an accomplished musician and Voice Over actor who is generous with her time and expertise. You can follow Megan on her website, Twitter, Facebook, and Flickr.
What are your earliest memories of TV?
Our black & white TV in the corner of the living room…watching LA’s Channel 52, which played Little Rascals (Our Gang), The Three Stooges, and old cartoons. Plus the old Indian test pattern and color test pattern (which didn’t matter because we didn’t have a color TV).
Who was your hero/heroine when you were 10?
The Wonder Woman TV series was still 3 years away so I was probably into WW via Superfriends. I was big into Greek mythology when I was 10, so that aspect of WW’s background appealed. I was also a feminist starting very early in my life (don’t know where it came from. It’s not like I was learning it explicitly from anyone in my family) and Wonder Woman, in her ideal state, is a powerful role model for girls & women.
Can you make a good cup of proper English tea?
Probably not. I picked up the habit of drinking Earl Grey tea when I was an exchange student in Denmark, where I was introduced to daily tea time. I still don’t put milk in my tea, though.
What was your first actorly part?
I played the Nurse in scenes from Romeo & Juliet in HS.
How do you spell colour?
color. But I spell “gray” as “grey”. And I often use the British pronunciation of “leisure”.
What are your favourite films and/or TV shows?
Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Firefly, Wonder Woman (first season), The West Wing, Sports Night, The Black Adder, Monty Python’s Flying Circus, Wonderfalls, Bab 5, Xena
Blazing Saddles, most Frank Capra films, many Woody Allen films, Looney Tunes & Merrie Melodies, Betty Boop (esp the ones with classic jazz), Raiders of the Lost Ark…. I could go on and on…
Joss Whedon: yes or no?
Yes! Yes! Yes!
In the event of a zombie apocalypse, where would you head?
Maybe a cemetery. Perhaps they wouldn’t be expecting much good live meat there.
FPS or Role Play?
I don’t do either because computer games are really hard on my hands. However, I’m more likely to do role playing. I like social things.
Was the last question a false dichotomy?
I’m not a qualified MD.
Thank you so much, Megan! you can buy the album, ‘Songs the Brother’s Warner taught Me’ from Megan’s Bandcamp page. You’ll be glad you did!
