Voice Compare » Captain Planet » Gaia
Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Gaia with sound clips and images.
Gaia is one of the main protagonists in the Captain Planet TV series in which she has been in the show right from the start. Gaia is the spirit of the Earth who is this show's take on the primordial Greek Earth Goddess and was the one who gave the Planeteers their power rings so they can summon Captain Planet. Gaia is basically the Mentor figure of the Planeteers and is the "Mission Control" for the team as she sends the Planeteers to where they are suppose to go to as she is unable to physically leave Hope Island and can only communicate with the Planeteers through telepathy when they are not on the island. Gaia is a calm and level-headed who does try to make sure that the planeteers work together and is kind of like a Motherly figure to them (especially for the Planeteers youngest member Ma-Ti as she believes his power of Heart is the most important of all).
EDITOR'S OPINIONToday on the Captain Planet VC section we take a look at the Spirit of Earth... GAIA! Let us begin...
Whoopi Goldberg- Whoopi's voice for the role is an interesting change of pace for her (even if it is basically her normal voice but a bit lower and smoother). But still Whoopi's performance for the role is very good as it does suit a calm motherly benevolent goddess rather well in which its one Whoopi's better VA performances and a fine example of the voice work in the show.
Margot Kidder- Margot's voice for the role is a rather bit lighter than Whoopi's but it still does work with the role pretty well. Margot's performance for the role does also suit a kind calm benevolent goddess pretty well and is still a pretty good example of the voice work in the show.
Overall both of these ladies did pretty well with the role but I will go with Whoopi a bit more as while Margot's voice is not bad but I did like Whoopi's voice for the role a bit more.
