Actress and comedian Debra Wilson is perhaps best known as the longest-serving original cast member on the sketch comedy series MADtv, appearing for the show's first eight seasons. With numerous guest star appearances in both network comedy and drama series’ and a score of independent films, she has more recently found success in the realm of voice over and motion capture for television, film, and video games.

Her voice over work began much earlier: as a narrator for E! Entertainment celebrity specials, and then into animation for television and film, ADR & looping, network announcing, radio commercials, books on tape, theme park attractions, and a wide range of video games. She has worked on well over fifty video games to date including five different World of Warcraft games, God of War, Final Fantasy XV, Mafia III, Gears of War 4, Telltale: The Walking Dead- The Final Season, several Call of Duty games, Telltale: Batman, and Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft.
