This page is about the actor.  For the character from a one-shot campaign, see Marisha Ray (character).

Marisha Ray is a voice actress who plays Beauregard, a human monk, on Critical Role. She played Keyleth, a half-elf druid, in the first campaign. She was also the Dungeon Master for "Trinket's Honey Heist" (Sx27) and "Honey Heist 2: Electric Beargaloo" (Sx35).


Pre-Stream[edit | edit source]

Before the first campaign, Marisha played another D&D game with the same Dungeon Master, Matthew Mercer. Also before the first 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.[citation needed]

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.[2]

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.[3]


Critical Role[edit | edit source]

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.[4]

When asked if she could be any character, Marisha chose Scanlan or Pike.[citation needed]
