Meg Griffin

Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Meg Griffin with sound clips and images.
Franchise: Family Guy

Meg Griffin is the daughter of Peter and Lois Griffin. She is the eldest child and older sister to Chris and Stewie Griffin.

In the original pilot she was voiced by Rachel McFarland. When the series got picked up Meg was voiced by Lacey Chabert, but after the first production season, Chabert left the show due to a combination of her school work and role on "Party of Five". Meg is currently voiced by Mila Kunis but for the episode "Don't Make Me Over" where Meg sings, her singing voice is provided by Tara Strong.

For the bonus material in Stewie Griffin: The Untold Story, Ali Hillis provided the singing voice for Meg in the segment where the character sang for the troops (making them run away in horror).

1. Mila Kunis: Kunis' voice is the most hilarious one of these ladies. Plus, her delivery sounds very natural and it fits the character's personality.
2. Lacey Chabert: Chabert is a pretty good voice actress, but I keep picturing Eliza.
3. Tara Strong: Strong does a wonderful job as Meg's singing voice. She could easily takeover the speaking role if they needed her to,
4. Rachael MacFarlane: She is not bad for a stand-in voice. Even though people will say she is Hayley and not Meg.
5. Ali Hillis: Yes her singing is bad and it is supposed to be, but if you ask me it is a little over-exaggerated.

Mila Kunis: Yeah, this is easily everyone's pick. IMO, her natural speaking matches her personality, especially later on in the show.

Lacey Chabert: Honestly, even with her different personality back in season 1, she was pretty miscast imo. Then again, the voice acting in early seasons weren't the show's strongest point. It wasn't really bad, not too memorable of a voice for Meg.

Rachael MacFarlane: Yeah, she's even worse and more miscat than Lacey, to be fair. It's just her natural speaking voice, which I think Linda Lamontagne overuse her way too much lately. (No offense to Rachael, but she doesn't has as much range as her brother)

I won't say much for the singing voice, though. Tara Strong did better singing at singing as Meg.

Speaking Voices
1. Mila Kunis- She sounds the most like she is a teenager who is going through a lot of abuse and rough times.
2. Lacey Chabert- She sounds like your generic bratty teenage kid, which fits Meg's character for the first season, though it would sound out-of-place if Lacey kept on voicing Meg when she became the "butt monkey" of the show.
3. Rachael MacFarlane- Her voice sounds flat and too old for a teenager.

Singing Voices
1. Tara Strong- She is a great singing voice that fits really well for Meg's character. I also like the idea that Meg has the talent for singing.
2. Ali Hillis- Her voice gets a bit strained sometimes, but otherwise, she's good at singing. It would also make sense for this voice to be used for a comic segment.

While the character gets excessively tortured too much for my liking in the newer seasons, I do think Mila Kunis does the best job as the character.

I'm going to go with current Mila as she covers all the accents of the previous ones but in the one dialouge making meg a fuly dialoged character with a range of different accents for alternative siturations.

I'll be honest, I'm not a very big fan of Lacey Chabert's Meg. She's not a bad voice actress by any means, but her Meg just comes across as so whiny and bratty (that was her personality in those early episodes, though, so I blame direction more than her).

In all honesty, Tara and Ali don't even count as the traditional voice of Meg because they're just singing voices.

Lacey Chabert was only good for Meg in the first season, before her persona was really fleshed out in the later season of Family Guy.

Rachael just doesn't fit Meg at all...when did she voice Meg anyways?

And so my vote goes to Mila Kunis, because she basically captured the essence of Meg's character: someone who is a loser, weirdo, whiney, etc.

P.S. Mila is pretty hawt in real-life LOLOL

Had to give it to Mila for the everyday voice.

She brings a certain, heavy, lower-pitched, imperfect quality that fits nicely with Meg's loser/weirdo personality.

Lacey, while lovely to listen to, comes off a bit too...normal. On any other average girl, she'd fit just fine. Perhaps this was more fitting before they had a chance to really flesh out Meg as a character.

As others have noted, it's rather awkward to lump the singing voices in with the regular voices. Doesn't seem like a proper comparison since they're one-off special cases... but alas...

Ali was hilarious and meshes well with Mila's voice. I cracked up quite a bit while listening to the clip. :)

Of course, Tara is a legend. Her voice is terrific as always, and quite appropriate if I understand the context of it correctly.

Both are great, but for pure entertainment value Ali wins over her, here.

Clearly I don't care who voices Meg. She still sucks! Call me a real Family Guy fan because even I hate Meg.

GameSpy asked Lacey why she left the show in 2006 and this is what she said:

GameSpy: Now this, of course, was not your first experience voice acting. You've done voices for a number of cartoons and video games over the years, including, if I'm not mistaken, Family Guy, where you were the original voice of Meg Griffin, right?

Lacey Chabert: I was. I did that for a season.

GameSpy: Does this mean you have a grudge against Mila Kunis, who does her voice now, and if so, can this be settled in a game of Sonic the Hedgehog?

Lacey Chabert: No, I actually left the show of my own accord. And only because I was in school and doing Party Of Five at the time. But I think the show is hilarious, and don't have a grudge against her at all. I think she's a great actress.

GameSpy: So no Sonic the Hedgehog grudge match…?

Lacey Chabert: No, sorry.

Mila 4ever as she made the character what she is.

Rachael was ok while Lacey was so annoying.

1. Mila Kunis - She's been the voice of the character the longest
2. Tara Strong - She doesn't match Mila's vocals but then again that happens in some films
3. Ali Hillis - Her singing is intended to be terrible which is why she is hilarious
4. Lacey Chabert - I prefer her as Eliza Thornberry
5. Rachel MacFarlane - I prefer her as Hayley Smith
said at 3:22 PM on Sat Oct 27 2012
That being said was Ali's song removed from the tv version of the episodes?
said at 3:21 PM on Sat Oct 27 2012
Well let's put it this way. Mila makes an otherwise boring character entertaining in some episodes well Lacey really didn't do anything interesting and Rachael really didn't have much material. For her signing voice I'll go with Ali since she was incompotent as a singer where Tara's version was talented.
said at 4:11 PM on Sat Oct 27 2012
@pete Rachel had better material and was better as Haley Smith.
said at 2:29 PM on Sat Apr 6 2013
@pete Meg was supposed to be singing well in Tara's scene. She had gotten a makeover, and was essentially a completely different person, and thus, could sing very well. Ali's singing is for the "normal" Meg who of course isn't supposed to very talented.
said at 2:50 PM on Sat Apr 6 2013
@PurpleWarrior13 Yeah I saw the episode but Ali's is more like the character while Tara's is the opposite being more confident and more effective as a singer with her makeover.

Rachael MacFarlane and Lacey Chabert are my faves. They fit Meg better in my opinion.

Mila Kunis gets the vote, even if I only kmow one other role of hers: Jackie in "That 70s Show"…

Lacey sounds younger than Mila's, which I like. Rachael wasn't very fitting.

In conclusion : Lacey Chabert for her speaking voice, Tara Strong for her singing voice.

Never would have guessed that Ali Hillis provided the singing voice for Meg. Although Mila Kunis did state that she couldn't sing, so it must be true.

Lacey and Mila are great! :D

With Lacey Chabert I can't see Meg as anyone else as Eliza Thornberry... xD
but as the years pass, Mila's voice make her seem older even if the story isn't actually letting them age.
said at 4:11 PM on Sun Jun 17 2012
I'm going to go with Mila Kunis. I think her voice just matches the character better than Lacey Chabert or Rachel Macfarlane. Not that Chabert was bad, just that Kunis suits the character.
said at 9:13 AM on Mon Mar 26 2012
I didn't know Tara Strong was Meg's singing voice in that episode. I guess you learn something new everyday! Also, Mila Kunis is the best Meg. Her voice is way more emotive, which is great when Meg started to become more depressed.

Lemme put it this way: I have heard Kunis's Meg far more than I have Lacey's, but to be honest, I actually grew up with the latter's since I technically enjoyed Family Guy seasons 1-2 for that... Of course, most might agree that Meg was somewhat more tolerable at the time, and after season 4/5, she got way too unlikeable, and yet people praised her character for that... So overall, Chabert got my vote due to the natural sound, itself. On the other hand, MacFarlane sounds weirdly forced, as if it didn't actually fit Meg's appearance or age in the matter... She did a crapload better for Haley Smith. Then again, Tara Strong did do an excellent singing voice for Meg in that one episode with that one quote I can't get outta my head: "I go to Baskin Robbins every night, and buy myself a little treat!"

Yes she is but she was also the original voice of Meg in the unaired Family Guy pilot.

But I guess you didn't bother to read the description above? :)

@Jackson_H I did but my comment was too short. I'm stating she IS Haley Smith and is best as the voice of her not Meg Griffin. Sorry about that.

Definitely Lacy Chabert. Her portrayal was most accurate. She made Meg sound like the misunderstood teenage girl she is. She also made you at least like Meg. Mila Kunis puts too much attitude into hers. She also makes Meg seem like a very unlikable character.
