Tracy Grandstaff is a writer, voice actor, and TV executive. From 1993 to 2002, she was the voice of Daria Morgendorffer on both Beavis and Butt-head and Daria (including Daria's Inferno), and minor Beavis characters Mrs. Stevenson and Cassandra.

Background[edit]

Tracy Grandstaff started at MTV in 1989, in the Off-Air Creative Department. According to Grandstaff she spent more time "making...copies than writing copy".

However, MTV posted job openings and gave MTV employees the chance to apply. Grandstaff ended up working for 10 years in the on-air promo department, writing and doing voice-overs for Beavis and Butt-head and eventually Daria.

During her time as an MTV employee, she wrote for both Beavis and Butt-head and The Tom Green Show. Since the end of the show, she has worked for several Viacom enterprises, including Nickelodeon and Comedy Central, primarily as a copywriter. According to an interview she gave in May 2010, she was then serving as vice-president of On-Air Creative for Comedy Central.

Trivia[edit]

  • She was one of the original seven persons to appear in the pilot for The Real World on MTV.
  • Grandstaff is sometimes credited as Tracey Grandstaff.
  • In MTV's behind-the-scenes feature about "Daria!", Grandstaff claims it was one of her favourite episodes because "I am so tone-deaf that for them to even talk me into it, to this day, fascinates me". She was advised during the recording to tone down and flatten it.
  • It is believed that she voiced Daria in an uncredited appearance on Drawn Together for Comedy Central.
  • She seems pro Tom: when asked in an interview if she advises girls to go for Trents or Toms, she says "Girls shouldn’t underestimate the Tom Sloanes of the world—they have their “edge” too. I bet Tom would shred on Rock Band."
