From an animated YouTube series I was a voice actor on:
Client: Hey, I just wanted to let you know that [a fellow cast member] killed himself last night.
Me: Oh my God! That’s terrible!
Client: It’s okay, I’ve sent out emails to potential replacements, and we should be back on track with recording by the end of the week.
Me: Wait, what? I’m really not comfortable with that. Can we at least take a break before recasting him, since this is a not-for-profit series anyway?
Client: He would have wanted the show to go on.
I got no response to this. That night:
Client: False alarm guys, [the cast member] is alive and well! I just assumed he’d killed himself because he was acting really depressed and he didn’t answer the IM I sent him a couple of hours earlier. Everything’s back to normal, so let’s move on to episode three!
