- This page is about the actor. For the character from a one-shot campaign, see Marisha Ray (character).
Marisha Ray is a voice actor. She plays Keyleth, a half-elf druid. She also played Edna in "Critical Trolls for Extra Life" (Sx02) and Snizzler in "To the Poop! Goblins: A Critical Role Pathfinder One-Shot" (Sx09).
Before the current campaign, Marisha played another D&D game with the same Dungeon Master, Matthew Mercer. Also before the current campaign, she was in another pen-and-paper RPG game with fellow voice actor and player Taliesin Jaffe. She has also played a tabletop version of Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
Marisha helped Matt host the first pre-stream session of the campaign that later became Critical Role, which was supposed to be a one-time game. She did not play as a character in that particular session.
Upon joining the campaign, Marisha assigned Keyleth's lowest stat to Charisma and played her as very introverted, which worked well because Marisha didn't know the other players well and decided to reflect that uncertainty in her character.
Marisha has the honor of being the first player to roll a natural 20 on Critical Role, which she rolled for a performance check while in the shape of a bear, trying to save Trinket from a bar fight.
