TROLLSTOPIA Season Seven: Voice Actress Megan Hilty Reflects On The Show Now That It Has Ended (Exclusive)

With the final season of TrollsTopia releasing last week we wanted to take a stroll down memory lane and get the opinion of Holly Darlin' voice actress Megan Hilty now that the show is behind her!

Interviews Opinion

After seven song-filled seasons, Dreamworks has brought the TrollsTopia series to a close. As of last week, the newest and final season is now available on Hulu.

We had spoken with Megan Hilty in the past about her experience with the show ahead of Season 6. The actress, who voices Holly Darlin', was happy to catch up with us again in support of the final season.

We look back at the series as a whole and Holly Darlin's growth throughout TrollsTopia, in addition to diving deep into the music and what else she would like to see her character explore.

You can hear what Megan has to say below, followed by the transcript, which has been edited for clarity. For those looking for a fully immersive experience, the full video interview is at the bottom.

The seasons are all so good, but I think they just got better and better and better. And I think any time you're ending a show like that or a series of stories like that, it's very difficult. Because at that time, everybody is so invested in all these characters, everybody is going to have their opinions, of course. But I think they did such a great job at creating excellent closure and kind of explaining closure to young audiences, too, in saying that "yeah, this part is over, but it's not over." Do you know what I mean? I just really like that sentiment, and I think it's right on par with how they deal with everything else on the show. I think it was expertly done.

I do know that my favorite episode was the get-away-cation where Val tried to plan this epic getaway for the girls, and it's horribly wrong. Everything is falling apart. I just love how Poppy and Holly are trying to be like, "no, it's great, you did a great job!" and just trying to hold it together until they just can't. (Laughs) I don't know about the songs, though; they're all so great. Anytime that I was learning a song and just humming it around the house, my kids would be like, "what's that? That's great." There's something about it that makes them all so catchy, but I don't know if I have a favorite.

If I have any musical input, it's really slight. It gets really technical. Is it head voice? Is it belting? Is it a mix? Do you want a yodel or less yodeling? You know those little cry things. But they're all so lovely in helping me navigate things because I end up singing in different genres that aren't necessarily my strong point. I think I'm a mezzo-soprano. I can get up high, but I don't know if I want to live up there. But they're always very tender about that. (Laughs) Every time we recorded was just pure joy.

I don't do riffs. (Laughs) I think that people assume if you sing, that you can do riffs, but I can't do that. I have other talents, but I don't do vocal gymnastics. So that I found challenging and would have to be like, "could we maybe take five notes out of that run so that it sounds kind of normal coming out of my body?" (Laughs) But, again, they were always so lovely and accommodating to what I could actually do.

I just wish that there was an episode with Holly Darlin' and Low Note Jones doing something wacky together. Where is that episode? I'm still holding out for it. I thought that would have been really fun. I'll go pitch it after this. (Laughs)

I've loved playing this character so much with her relentless positivity and generosity. I don't know that there's a point in Holly's journey that resonated with me, but just Holly as a character and this show, in general, has been a really bright spot in my life. Before the pandemic hit, I would go into the studio with everybody, and delightful Matt Beans would set the tone for an amazing day of recording, and we would all just have a great time. And then, when everything shut down, and I had to do things in my little closet and do things over zoom, it still remained this really bright light in my life.

And I will always be grateful that I had that during one of the arguably darkest times that we've lived through. Because every single time I saw that that was on the schedule, it was like, "oh, great, that's going to fill my spirit and give me purpose." I get to be around amazing people for a couple of hours even though I'm in my closet. I get to play this amazing character who would navigate this pandemic way better than I have. Holly as a character and this show has had a profound impact on me

If there was another season, more characters would probably show up. What would be really awesome is incorporating more characters from the movies. Just characters popping in here and there would be really fun. And could you imagine the other characters that could pop out of nowhere too? There are tons of different genres that you could do; the possibilities are kind of endless.

I don't think I've come to terms with it. I don't think I've really accepted that it's over, much like I think Holly wouldn't. It hasn't really hit me yet. We always have these breaks in between the seasons, and then we come back. So it just feels like another break. But one day, it's gonna hit me that I'm not going to be in the booth with this particular group of people. Maybe some of them on other shows hopefully one day, but I haven't acknowledged it yet. I'm just burying it down real deep.

In voice-over, it's a boundless opportunity to play all of these amazing characters and continue singing and work with incredible people, and I love working with the little technicalities of the voice and stuff. And then I still get to be in front of a live audience when I go to concerts. So I feel really lucky to have this mix of things. But voiceover is where it's at for me for sure.

I don't know if this is the way I would explain it to a kid, but the way that I see this series is that it is a perfect lovely example of how we're better when we're together. When we embrace what makes us unique and makes us feel different is actually our superpower. That is what we can contribute to the group. We're better when we all bring our superpowers and work together. That's how I see this show. For my kids, it's just really fun with lots of fun songs and wacky characters that say silly things that are also really lovely and heartfelt, too. What I love is that kids and adults can watch it together and enjoy it equally but maybe take different things out of it.
