Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The producers had already thought of Jen Brown as the voice of Pyrrha when presenting her with a script. Jen stated that in order to get into character, she warms up her voice given the character's high register, and stood on her toes, to "get really tall; makes me feel more regal".
- After the death of Pyrrha in RWBY, Jen Brown posted a heartfelt message to her fans on her Twitter. The message is as follows: (the text has been reformatted for the Wiki)
- To start let me just say it has been a true honor to play such a vibrant character. Playing Pyrrha meant the absolute world to me and getting to see how much she meant to many of you as well means a lot.
- The entire Rooster Teeth team and RWBY crew deserves so much praise for how beautifully the show was handled. I have known from the minute I was cast 3 years ago that this would be Pyrrha's fate. It was Monty's intention from the start. And although it is kind of a relief to no longer have to keep it to myself, I am very sad that her journey has come to an end. Watching that final scene was beyond emotional for me. When you've invested so much into a character it is hard to let them go.
- Most importantly I thank Monty. I miss him every day and thank him for trusting me with Pyrrha. Monty also intended for me to play other roles after Pyrrha's exit and although I have no further details right now... I fully trust that Miles Luna and Kerry Shawcross will stay true to his wishes and have me back as someone new. I love those guys.
- I have loved hearing everyone's theories & kind words & it's crazy to know that I played a small part in bringing joy to so many.
- I end by giving my heartfelt gratitude to you the viewer. You guys are seriously the best. And for the last time, I'm sorry!
- Oh yeah, and also... Long live Lisa Lavender!!!
- According to fellow voice actor Shannon McCormick, although Pyrrha's death was an emotional moment for Jen, the impact was somewhat lessened as she returned to recording for her just a few weeks later for RWBY Chibi.
