Deedee Magno-Hall originally tried out for the parts of both Pearl and Sadie. Deedee got the part of Pearl, while Kate Micucci got the part of Sadie.
It was originally thought that "Say Uncle" was to celebrate Deedee's 40th birthday due to her being born on April 2, 1975 and the episode airing on April 2, 2015.
When asked what her favorite episode of Steven Universe was, she responded with "Ooh so many to choose from, but some fun ones yet to come!!"
When interviewed she describes Pearl as “... a little bit crazy, a little bit sensitive but she plays like sort of maternal character to the leading character Steven Universe”.
She also added “I don’t have to put on a voice for that character, I just own my voice. And because I’m a mother of two kids, a lot of my tone, it comes very natural to me to portray a mother type”.
Deedee Magno-Hall went on tour in the If/Then musical, which ran from October 13, 2015 to August 2016.
Because of this, during the production of Season 3, she sometimes had to record her lines separately because she was out of town for the recording sessions.
