* 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(except for American Boy), Deedee Magno (Pearl) works primarily in theatre, the only other major roles Michaela Dietz (Amethyst) has are Fo Figgly(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 that's just three of them.

* This happened with the actress who played the mom in ''Film/WhatsEatingGilbertGrape''. She was discovered after appearing on Sally Jessy Raphael's show and was mainly cast because the director couldn't find a professional actress who was big enough to fit the role. [[SugarWiki/HeReallyCanAct Despite a stellar performance (especially amazing since she had no experience beforehand)]], she hasn't acted in a theatrically-released film since then.

* ''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]].

* ''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/SherryLyn) 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.)

* ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'' was probably ''the'' first example of an uncut anime dub with union voice actors, partly because Creator/VizMedia outsourced the voice acting to the UsefulNotes/Vancouver based [[Creator/TheOceanGroup Ocean Studios]]. Like ''Tenchi Muyo'' above, most of the original cast didn't do much before hand. That didn't mean most of them didn't do much ''afterwards''. In fact several cast members still get roles to this day.

* 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.
