It’s hard to believe I’ve been a working actor since 1981! SCARY is more like it!
I’m best known for my work in the anime genre but have extensive credits in TV, film, commercials, audiobooks, cartoons, video games, and ADR. I earned 2 DramaLogue Awards as a stage actress in Hollywood for outstanding performances as an actress. (DramaLogue morphed into BackStage West)
I also had starring roles in 2 motion pictures: Mugsy’s Girls with Ruth Gordon and Laura Branigan, later renamed “Delta Pi.” and Round Numbers with Kate Mulgrew, Samantha Eggar, and Shani Wallis. They were not A movies but heck, I got paid. Plus, I got to work with some very cool actors.
Television roles include:
Hill Street Blues, LA Law, and St. Elsewhere.
. . . but it was my distinctive child-like voice that led me to voice-overs
The cool thing is: I sound like a real kid rather than a cartoony one. I’ve replaced the voices of several child performers in film and TV movies that needed some “acting” help.
Anime Roles I’m best known for include:
Minmei in Robotech, Maia Devlin in Space Pirate Captain Harlock, Pai in 3 X3 Eyes, Patty Rabbit in Mapletown, Mihoshi in Tenchi in Tokyo and Tenchi Movie 2 and 3, Nunnally Lamperouge in Code Geass, Tima in Metropolis, Sugar in Snow Fairy Sugar, Suiseseki in Rosen Maiden, Naomi in Twilight of the Cockroaches, Primera in Magic Knight Rayearth, Tachikoma in Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex, Ai in Digimon, Farleen in Star Ocean: Till the End of Time, Sharon in Blood the Last Vampire, Tama Chan in Bottle Fairy, Alice Henderson in Speed Racer, Juliette in Dogtanian and the 3 Muskahounds, Ayane Isuzu in Gatekeeper, Rika Furude in When They Cry, Rita in Suikoden IV, Cyberdoll Rena in Hand Maid May, Izzy Randall and Lynn Minmei in Robotech Battlecry, Chizuko Oe in Mahoromatic, and many many more. Not everything I worked on is listed on the IMDB.
