The Bad Guys: Lilly Singh says her character Tiffany is similar to her YouTube persona, 'both are bit loud, over-the-top'

Lilly Singh lends voice for animated film, The Bad Guys

YouTube sensation and host Lilly Singh has become a worldwide phenomenon and a force to reckon with on the digital space. She has donned many hats, acing them all with her fierce personality and super talent. The actor-comedian is now all set for the release of her upcoming movie, The Bad Guys. Adapted from the book of the same name, the animated action-comedy is about villains going off course from their conventional villainous image and choosing to walk the path of good.

The film is by DreamWorks and Universal Pictures production. As the film is nearing its release, Lilly Singh opened up about her character Tiffany, and why she chose to do the film. She says in a statement that she loved the idea of taking the concept of villains and flipping it. "It is about these characters that have always been perceived as villains, so they embrace the fact that they are The Bad Guys. And, as I have a big fear of spiders, this spoke to me personally because I am definitely one of those people that would see a spider and think it’s a bad guy,” she adds.

She also opened up about how she landed the project. She adds, “I got an email one day titled The Bad Guys that was about this super cool movie based on these books which I love, and I got offered the role of Tiffany. I guess it was because of my experience of playing a similar persona on YouTube, as she is a bit loud and over-the-top.”

Having worked on animated movies earlier as well, Lilly shares that she finds it magical being in a booth and creating the world in her mind. "I also really like the knowledge that what I am working on will hold a dear place in people’s hearts, precisely because of the role that animation played in my life,” she says.

Creating the right buzz with an all-star-studded cast, ‘The Bad Guys’ has voice-overs by Sam Rockwell as Mr. Wolf, Awkwafina as Ms. Tarantula, Anthony Ramos as Mr. Piranha, Marc Maron as Mr. Snake and Craig Robinson as Mr. Shark. The movie hits theatres on May 20.
