Voice Compare » Family Guy » Meg Griffin

Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Meg Griffin with sound clips and images.
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).

EDITOR'S OPINION

Mila Kunis's voice is my favorite voice among these voice actors. Lacey Chabert and Rachel MacFarlane were pretty good too but seem to lack that certain quality that makes Meg such a messed up character that Mila Kunis brings to the role.

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

Oh man. Somebody call the Autobots, we're under attack. Oh wait, it's just Meg. Sorry for the confusion, her full name is Megatron. HA!

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.

I prefer Lacey Chabert over Mila Kunis. Mila made Meg sound like a bitch, which is really no surprise from Jackie Burkhart. Lacey made her sound like a sweet teenage girl, which is what she was to begin with.

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

That being said was Ali's song removed from the tv version of the episodes?
pete

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.

@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.
pete
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.

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.

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.

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.

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? :)

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.
