Q: Who did the original voice for Meg on "Family Guy?" It changed sometime during the first season, I think.

« Back to Q & A


It was actually partway through the second season that former "That '70s Show" star and frequent lad-magazine cover model Mila Kunis took over the role of Meg from its originator, Lacey Chabert.

It's easy enough to be confused, though, since the show's troubled early years of low ratings and frequent schedule moves left the first season with just seven episodes.

Chabert is best known as Claudia Salinger in the hit Fox teen drama "Party of Five," which she was starring in at the same time she was doing "Family Guy."

However, she also came to the Meg role with a bit of voice experience, as she was voicing Eliza in the Nickelodeon series "The Wild Thornberrys" -- also at the same time, making her a rather busy 17-year-old.

She reportedly left "Family Guy" because its constantly shifting schedule was conflicting with her main "Party of Five" gig.

She's since gone on to a lot of TV guest spots and plenty of feature films (she got an early start, getting her first film gig at age 11), with four on the go right now.

The Christmas comedy "A Holiday Heist" and the dramatic "Telling of the Shoes" are both due for release in the coming months, while the family-friendly "Anything's Possible" and the haunted-house horror "The Ghost of Goodnight Lane" are still being filmed.
