* Many of the actors in ''Film/{{Moonlight2016}}'' had not acted in a major production before. The actors playing young Chiron and Kevin were chosen from an open casting call in Miami and even the teen actors were relative unknowns.

* The Mexican Spanish dub of ''Manga/LoveHina'' suffered from this, due to the fact the dub was an innocent victim of a voice actor strike caused by ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'''s Mexican voice actors when they were fired from the show, forcing the studio on rely on this. The only veterans at the time were Naru (Carla Vega), Mei (Georgina "Gina" Sánchez) and Mutsumi (Creator/LilianaBarba)s' voice actors. As a result the dub is widely considered to be one of the worst (if not ''the'' worst) Spanish dubs put out by Mexico.

* ''Anime/TenchiMuyo'' was one of the first uncut anime dubs to use union voice actors (though it was a non-union project until partway through the second [=OVA=]). As a result most of the oirginal cast hadn't had much voice acting experience beforehand, (the notable exceptions being Jennifer Darling, Ellen Gerstell, and Creator/SherryLynn) and they had no dub roles at all until that point. Most of them didn't have much success afterward. (Creator/DebiDerryberry is a notable exception, but even then, she's more well know for her western animation and video game roles.)

* A lot of the cast of ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' had very little experience in voiceover. Estelle (Garnet) is a singer who hasn't had much fame (while she has won awards, most people know as "The American Boy singer"), Deedee Magno (Pearl) works primarily in theatre, the only other major roles Michaela Dietz (Amethyst) has are the title character of ''Fo Fo Figgily'' (an ''extremely'' obscure series, to the point where even IMDb has very little information about it) and [[Series/BarneyAndFriends Riff]] (who is only brought up, if at all, in mockery of Barney and as [[RetroactiveRecognition a footnote in her career]], and Grace Rolek's (Connie) career mostly consists of minor characters, and Tom Scarpling (Greg) was a comedian, writer, and Music Video director beforehand. In fact, the only veteran voice actors in the series are Creator/KimberlyBrooks (Jasper) and Creator/DeeBradleyBaker (various vocal effects, most notably Lion), though Zach Callison (Steven), Matthew Moy (Lars), and Kate Miucci (Sadie) have also done some voice work.

* It was common in the late 90's for Japanese video game dubs, as most studios didn't have the money for proper casts, and English vocals were outright required for the UsefulNotes/PlayStation. As such, English speaking expatriates were frequently cast, very little of whom had ''any'' acting experience. By the mid 00's these types of buds were all but dead, though a few examples of these dubs popped up from time to time.

* WesternAnimation/TwelveOunceMouse'''s characters are voiced by the series creator, the producers, a couple of the animators, and a musician who worked for the studio. This fits with the rest of the show's [[NoBudget aesthetic]].
