Pigeonholed Voice Actor

Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.

"Nolan North isn't just doing the same voice in every game, he's doing the same character."

A form of Typecasting where a Voice Actors is irrevocably linked to a certain personality type they play, especially the character who made them famous. Extremely common in Japan, where merely seeing a picture of the character and knowing the name of their actor can sometimes give you a fairly accurate idea of what they'll be like. Actors wary of this sometimes do 'breakout roles' to subvert this.

This a controversial situation, because some animation buffs consider versatility more impressive than anything (a major legacy of Mel Blanc). Keep in mind that Tropes Are Not Bad. It explains why some western voice actors are considered sub par; actors with a long resume usually take a few episodes to really get the hang of their character. In fact, there are some voice actors that fans feel that the roles they are typecast into are appropriate for their range.

Aside from name recognition, this may also be another factor in choosing a Hollywood actor to do voice work in a movie where they are essentially playing themselves and will fall into the role naturally.

Compare Hey, It's That Guy! and Hey, It's That Voice!. If it's two voice actors in a pigeonholed relationship, it becomes Relationship Voice Actor. Contrast Man of a Thousand Voices, although do note that it is possible for some of the typecast voice actors to have a wide range, just unable to do so for obvious reasons.[1] If the actor's later roles are specifically designed to imitate an earlier, successful role, the first one is a Fountain of Expies.

Note that this does not refer to there being at least one more character than there are actors, thereby forcing at least one actor to play the role of two or more characters.

Examples of Pigeonholed Voice Actor include:

English Voice Actors[edit | hide | hide all]

  • Crispin Freeman, with his gruff and unmistakably badass voice, is mostly cast in roles as an intimidating and/or incredibly badass characters. While he has recently taken on many less intimidating roles in which his voice isn't gruff in the slightest (to the point of doing a convincing Orlando Bloom impression for playing Will Turner in most video games based on or featuring Pirates of the Caribbean), he is most known for such characters as Alucard from Hellsing, Albedo from Xenosaga, Albel from Star Ocean: Till the End of Time, Itachi from Naruto, Holland Novak from Eureka Seven, Rude from Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children, Regal in Tales of Symphonia, Baldur in Too Human, Overlord Zetta in Makai Kingdom, Heat in Digital Devil Saga, Siegfried in SoulCalibur 3 and Electro in The Spectacular Spider-Man.
  • Jennifer Hale plays mostly Action Girls in videogames, such as Junko Zane from Freelancer, Silver Sable in Ultimate Spider-Man and Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions, the female version of Commander Shepard from Mass Effect and of Jaden Kor from Jedi Outcast, Bastila in Knights of the Old Republic, Prier in La Pucelle, Sheena in Tales of Symphonia, the Scarlet Witch in X-Men Legends II: Rise of the Apocalypse, and Alexandra Roivas from Eternal Darkness. An exception would be Xel'otath, the Ancient from this same game, or Fall-From-Grace from Planescape: Torment (though Fall-From-Grace is still a intelligent and capable woman). She's also Samus. Oh, and both June the bounty hunter and Avatar Kyoshi from Avatar: The Last Airbender.
  • Gary Chalk, whose most notable voice work has been as Optimus Prime/Primal in many of the Transformers series, tends to play authoritative, military, or police roles (Such as the Russian general in Stargate SG-1). He has played other roles, however, and his live action career is somewhat broader.
  • Speaking of Transformers, Peter Cullen, who is most remembered as the voice of Optimus Prime in the first animated series, is so strongly associated with the role, fans actually successfully petitioned for him to reprise the role in the 2007 live-action movie. It also happens to be one of his two favorite roles, the other being Eeyore. He's also done work in other series, such as Voltron, and was the main announcer for Toonami.
    • Likewise, Frank Welker (see below for additional roles), as a consolation to fans when a similar petition could not overcome the awesome that was Hugo Weaving's voice, reprised the role of Megatron for the movie's video-game incarnations. He's also the voice actor for Soundwave, another character he voiced in the original animated series, in the sequel.
  • Patrick Warburton's another American example. His deep, burly voice means that he makes the perfect voice for a muscle-bound type, many of whom are quite moronic. In an unusual twist, Warburton is also able to play these types in live action as well (see Fox's live version of The Tick (animation), for example), since he is tall, fit, and quite muscular. See him as Kronk in The Emperor's New Groove, Brock Sampson on The Venture Brothers, Mr. Steve Barkin on Kim Possible, or Joe on Family Guy.
    • It was fans of the original TV series who decided he should play Hymie in the Get Smart movie.
  • Mark Hamill, in contrast to his live action typecasting as ingenue heroes like Luke Skywalker and "Maverick" Blair, has been typecast in animation as a player of deranged villains like the Joker, whom he portrayed masterfully in Batman the Animated Series.
  • Kevin Conroy, who will "always" be known as the voice of Batman.
    • This is actually Justified Trope, due to the fact that he loves that role and has no problems being instantly recognized as Batman.
    • During 9/11, he was helping with supplying water and stuff to firefighters and rescued people. Someone figured out who he was and told others, who didn't believe him. Kevin proceeded to do the Batman voice to prove it.
  • Tim Curry usually provides the voice for villains, with the exception of Nigel Thornberry and Gabriel Knight (twice). An example is Ben Ravencroft from Scooby Doo and the Witch's Ghost . This probably stems from the fact that his most famous role was as Dr. Frank-N-Furter.
  • Similarily, Clancy Brown is known for being typecast as iniquitous characters. His best-known portrayal is probably Lex Luthor of the DCAU and Long Feng in Avatar: The Last Airbender, as well as the more lovably greedy Mr. Krabs of SpongeBob SquarePants. He, too, can pull this off in live action, as his performance in The Shawshank Redemption will attest.
  • Many of Grey De Lisle's characters are notably similar, often cast as some form of bitchy teenager, ranging from the bossy and overbearing (Mandy from The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy) to the sociopathic (Azula from Avatar: The Last Airbender) to the flat-out criminally insane (Vicky from The Fairly OddParents). DeLisle herself has said this is contrary to how she thinks of herself as "a sweet pollyanna type", a role she finally got to play in Baldurs Gate 2 with Nalia de'Arnise, although she also played Dark Magical Girl Viconia deVir. She also plays Kimiko.
    • While Nalia could be considered "sweet", she's undoubtedly also a bitchy teenager. A rich bitchy teenager. Still, she means well, which is more than can be said for most other characters Grey DeLisle plays...
    • Of course, in Avatar: The Last Airbender she also plays Roku's wife and Katara and Sokka's mom.
    • Subversion, Sam Manson is a goth. Despite outside appearances, goth girls are nice, Perky Goth, and fun.
    • Another subversion, Frankie Foster is pretty nice and sweet, she just has her patience tested by living in the freakshow that is Foster's.
    • She played Lor McQuarry in The Weekenders, who started off overbearing and insensitive but later toned down to simply competitive and rather ditzy.
    • An aversion - DeLisle also voices Wubbzy of Wow Wow Wubbzy.
    • And a complete aversion when she does sweet, kind-hearted could-do-no-wrong Emily Elizabeth in Clifford the Big Red Dog.
    • It's safe to say that she has 3 main voice types: the bitchy teenage girl, the sweet/annoying kid, and the strong villainess.
    • Averted when she played Penny's Mom in Bolt, whose voice's wholesome, motherly qualities rival those of Laurie Metcalf in Toy Story.
  • Keith David usually plays monstrous/alien/conniving characters when voice acting, like Goliath from Gargoyles, Spawn, and The Arbiter. He also does excellent narration.
  • The late Chris Latta had a monopoly on playing slimy subservient villains in 80s cartoons, using pretty much the same screechy voice each time out; G.I. Joe's Cobra Commander, Starscream from Transformers, D'Compose from Inhumanoids, Cravex from Visionaries: Knights of the Magical Light, and Rasp on Dino Riders, although the first two are his more famous roles.
    • Although partially averted in Transformers; he also played Wheeljack and Sparkplug Witwicky and the heroic Gung Ho in G.I. Joe.
  • Six words: Special Vocal Effects by Frank Welker. Pick a monster/alien/animal, and if it doesn't talk comprehensibly, there's a good chance he did it.
    • Welker is so completely ubiquitous that in a commentary track for the Batman Beyond DVDs, the sound effects for a dog in one episode were initially attributed to him before the crew remembered that for that episode they used a recording of an actual dog.
    • And of course he's the voice of Fred in Scooby Doo.
      • And currently[when?], Scooby-Doo too!
    • And Ray Stantz on The Real Ghostbusters.
    • And Megatron in Transformers. (And Soundwave. And Frenzy. And Rumble...)
    • And Nibbler in Futurama...
    • And Pegasus in Disney's |Hercules... etc, etc, etc...
  • Dee Bradley Baker also frequently does monstrous, non-human voices. Teen Titans fans will know him as literally any grunting beastie, such as Plasmus, Cinderblock, or Overload (who was voiced by someone else in the one episode in which he actually speaks) as well as Larry. In Avatar: The Last Airbender he voices all of the animals in the show, from a flying lemur to a giant flying bison. Also a hippie "nomad".
  • When you need a deep, resonant black man's voice to say something really important, there's one really obvious go-to guy: James Earl Jones.
    • In a Star Wars special on E!, a comedian said that when watching Return of the Jedi, he got shocked that Darth Vader, that seemed to be a huge black man with that armor and voice, was actually white.
    • And if James Earl Jones isn't available, there's always Keith David. He even replaced Jones as Mufasa in House of Mouse.
      • Or Michael Clarke Duncan.
      • Or Dennis Haysbert.
      • Or Kevin Michael Richardson! Who actually replaced Keith David as the voice of Tombstone in The Spectacular Spider-Man after the first episode.
      • Or Beau Billingslea.
      • Are you sure Keith David isn't interested?
  • Voice actress Monica Rial is well-known for her work for ADV Films, where she has accumulated a resume filled with quiet, withdrawn or depressed girls with soft, high-pitched, whispery voices, such as Kirika, Saki, Lila, and Rokugou.
  • As noted above, some voice actors get stuck in roles similar to their live action personas. Three examples:
  • Terrence Stone is seemingly on this track. His two most recent[when?] VA roles are Mayuri Kurotsuchi in Bleach and a similarly voiced alien (down to the same mannerisms) in a recent[when?] Gamestop commercial.
  • Kevin Michael Richardson usually voices really really big guys, usually in a fantasy or sci-fi setting, and often with a hint of the Scary Black Man. Examples include Sarevok of Baldurs Gate, most of the villains of Viewtiful Joe, and Captain Gantu from Liloand Stitch. However, he currently[when?] plays that great salvation of every Pigeonholed Voice Actor, The Joker, on The Batman, and also did a fair showing as snarky Old Master Jolee Bindo in Knights of the Old Republic.
  • Kath Soucie pretty much has 3 types of roles she plays: The typical Mother, the cute girl, and the bratty little boy. She can voice a whole family if she wants, in fact, she DID in Rugrats, playing twin brother and sister Phil and Lil as well as their mother, Betty. Nonetheless, it's still not hard to tell all three are done by her.
    • This is averted hard on Gargoyles where Greg Weisman said that she voices over 100 characters. All of the main ones she did are completely different from on another.
    • Don't forget Amanda Evert from Tomb Raider Legend or Marjolaine (using a fake French accent) from Dragon Age Origins, both of which are slight aversions to her usual character types..
  • Jim Cummings is easily recognized as the deep voice on virtually every Disney production since the 1980s. He voiced Pete from Goof Troop, Negaduck and the titular character from Darkwing Duck, Rasoul the guard from Aladdin, the centaur Nessus and the Fat Thebian from Hercules, and is the voice of both Tigger and Winnie the Pooh.
    • His portrayal of Robotnik in Sonic Sat AM sounded like he enacted his name on everything he said.
    • Debatable, since - as some of the above examples show - Jim Cummings is used for high, wacky voices (Darkwing Duck, Professor Nimnul) just as often as he is used for deep, gravelly ones. He does seem to be Disney's go-to voice for Generic Foreigner, Generic Guard, and Generic Foreigner Guard, though.
    • Outside of Disney, however, Cummings is renown for a wide range of voices, shown in such variable characters as enthusiastic Boisterous Bruiser Minsc from the Baldurs Gate series to snobbish Dimension Lord Thrakkorzog on The Tick (animation). He is used very often in DreamWorks' animated films, usually as extras or a minor scripted character.
    • What Disney film is Cummings not in? Seriously... He does tons of background voices, and he's also Ray and Ed. Disney's got Cummings on Speed Dial.
    • See also the Terror Mask in the new[when?] Splatterhouse, which combines his recognizable deep voice with a healthy dose of profane expletives.
  • An example of an I Am Not Spock Pigeonholed Voice Actor: Yeardley Smith, who plays Lisa on The Simpsons, has an instantly recognisable voice, which is why whenever she plays another character on The Simpsons (making her one of the only actors one the series who doesn't) it gets lampshaded (cf. "Missionary Impossible," when Homer befriends an Islander girl who looks and sounds like Lisa, and "The Last Tap Dance In Springfield," when Lisa watches that Spanish dancing movie and the girl Eduardo picks is a Hot Librarian named Lisabella). She also voiced one of the telekinetic kids in the remastered version of Akira. It's impossible to escape the fact that she sounds exactly like Lisa.
    • This was referred to briefly in an episode of Herman's Head, when her character Louise angrily hung up on someone and then demanded to know from her coworkers if she really sounded like "that girl from The Simpsons."
    • Oddly, Julie Kavner almost never plays any Simpsons characters besides Marge and her immediate family members (i.e., her twin sisters Patty and Selma, her mom, and her deceased great-aunt Gladys from "Selma's Choice". Marge's father [who only appeared in "The Way We Was" and "Fear of Flying"] was voiced by Hank Azaria), who all have the same gravelly voice at different pitches. It's odd because Kavner's real voice sounds nothing like that and she could easily play different-sounding characters if she chose.
  • Yuri Lowenthal is often typecast into Kid Hero roles such as, Ben Tennyson, Simon, Yuri Shibuya and Superboy. However, like many English voice actors, he does have a bit of flexibility. Sasuke Uchiha and Suzaku are well known characters that are not kid hero roles.
    • Also angsty roles that require him to scream from the absolute bottom of his lungs. Sasuke Uchiha, Ben Tennyson, Suzaku Kururugi, Cecil... Probably the absolute biggest example is Haseo from .Hack//G.U
      • "Come on.. Come on... I'm right here.... SKEEEEIIIIIIIIIIITTTHHHH!!"
      • Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, where not only did he pull off a foreign accent he pulled off the accent of an Iranian taught English by the English!
      • Also sort of broke the mold by voicing Persona 4's Yosuke Hanamura, a generally normal (if not slightly awkward and goofy) high school student who ends up becoming the hero's right hand man as the game progresses.
      • And in Persona 3, where he Calls Out Attacks for the otherwise Heroic Mime Protagonist, and also voiced Ryoji and Creepy Child Pharos and it's not a coincidence.
  • Scott McNeil is a good voice actor, but he really has two major voices, exemplified by Duo Maxwell (high-pitched and cocky with a bit of a rasp, usually for younger characters) and Dinobot (Deep, with a lot of growls and/or snarls, perfect for more inhuman ones). His roles usually shift somewhere between the two. (Arguably, he has a third sub-voice, "Piccolo", but that's really Dinobot with more of a rasp than a snarl). To be fair, it's a cool voice.
    • Two notable exceptions are Waspinator and Silverbolt, also from Beast Wars. And Waspy does not use flanging. I've heard the man do it cold.
      • Then you have Lord Bale (SSSSINDRIIII!!) and Lord Firraveus Carron of the Warhammer 40,000 Dawn of War games, which have been described as "Evil Dinobots"
    • Since his most used character on Beast Wars was Rattrap (A Duo-style voice), Mr. McNeil spent more then one episode essentially talking to himself, as Rattrap was often paired with Silverbolt or Dinobot. The recording sessions must have been entertaining to watch.
      • There's a sound clip floating around the net where he gleefully rattles through his Duo, all his voices from Beast Wars, a couple of other characters from various shows, and the X-Men Evolution version of Wolverine (Which is kinda like Piccolo, but not as raspy) in about two minutes flat. It's a thing of beauty indeed.
    • Then there's Hack and Specky of ReBoot; Jeice (Duo with a Brit accent), Tao, South Kai and Buu of Dragon Ball Z; Suezo, Grey Wolf, Naga, and Gali of Monster Rancher; Principal Kuno of Ranma ½; Pelvis and Blokk (Dinobot with an German accent) of Shadow Raiders; Stratos (Silverbolt) and Ram-man of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe; Vulture of Spider-Man Unlimited - none of which sound mildly alike (really, the list goes on).
    • That and in the animated version of Ben-hur he was JESUS.
    • In the Mega Man cartoon, his Proto Man voice was essentially Duo, but his Dr. Wily voice was a bit different. It was vaguely like Dinobot, but it was lower in pitch and he put on a German accent.
    • He also voiced Cain and Mr. White (Who is African American)
  • Rino Romano tends to play suave, sexy Hispanics, such as the inexplicably Mexican Luis Sera, or the charming hacker Randy Hernandez on a surprisingly good show called Godzilla the Series. Of course, he's also The Batman, and did Spider-Man in Spider-Man Unlimited and many video games.
  • If a character is large and slimy, there's a good chance he's Ron Perlman.
    • Except for Mr. Lancer
    • And Slade isn't especially... large. Or slimy. Unless you mean metaphorically.
    • The same could be said for Fire Lord Sozin. And Hellboy (who he voices and plays in live action) who's large, but not slimy. Really the only Perlman voice character that would count as slimy is Clayface.
      • I think "slimy" is meant here in the personality sense, not the literal sense. Slade and Sozin are as slimy as you can get.
    • Of course, the whole point is that war never changes, right?
  • Christopher Sabat is usually cast as more gruff roles like Zoro in One Piece, Giroro in Sgt. Frog, Alex Louis Armstrong in Fullmetal Alchemist, and most notable, Piccolo and Vegeta in Dragon Ball Z.
    • His exceptions to this are Yamcha, Jeice, and Burter in DBZ, the latter of which sounds similar to his Vegeta voice.
      • In a behind-the-scenes video for Dragon Ball Z Budokai 3, Chris Sabat explains that as the ADR Director, he's done all the voices for the actors to mimic.
  • Richard Ian Cox is frequently cast as action-oriented, impetuous, somewhat jerky male characters, including the second Ranma Saotome in Ranma ½, the title character of Inuyasha, Quicksilver in X-Men Evolution, and Bit Cloud in Zoids Zero.
  • Got a Genki Girl with a sharp, upbeat voice? That's Lara Jill Miller for you.
  • Cree Summer tends to end up in the "feisty" roles for black females (Codename: Kids Next Door, Danny Phantom, Rugrats/WesternAnimation/AllGrownUp). Or the Black Best Friend. Or sometimes females of different colors, such as She Hulk.
    • How is Princess Kida feisty?
    • Also Hyena is much more Ax Crazy than feisty.
    • And she ended up lampshading her typecasting in phenomenal fashion on Drawn Together, probably her best voice work ever.
    • Though ironically, two of her most famous voice roles, those of Penny on Inspector Gadget and Elmyra on Tiny Toon Adventures, were both white characters.
    • She gets to reprise the feisty role as Blackarachnia in Transformers Animated. And she's black (well, her armour plating is).
    • She also did the fiesty Cleo in Clifford the Big Red Dog using a voice similar to her Foxxy Love voice. If you watched Drawn Together before watching Clifford, be prepared for Narm.
  • Miss Kittie ends up in the role for "sassy" black females (American Dragon: Jake Long, The Boondocks, BET's Cita's World). She did get to play against type in W.I.T.C.H. as the shy genius girl Taranee.
  • Hillary Haag tends to voice a lot of young or young-sounding girls -- Becky in Pani Poni Dash, Milk in Super Milk Chan, Seth in Trinity Blood, Ume in Air Gear, Puchiko in Di Gi Charat, etc. But she's also been known to voice trolls (Sorcerer Stabber Orphen), dogs (Excel Saga), and normal adult women (Nene in Bubblegum Crisis 2040).
  • Arthur Q. Bryan's roles in Looney Tunes shorts typically sounded like Elmer Fudd. (like the title character in "Dangerous Dan McFoo" and the narrator in "Nutty News". In fact, the only time he used his natural voice was as the annoyed, sleep-deprived customer in "A Pest In The House" (who was essentially a caricature of Bryan).
  • Luci Christian tends to do a lot of action girls in dubs... to the point where it's probably best to say that one of the only exceptions is her turn as Dejiko in Di Gi Charat. She also does young boys, such as Sasshi in Abenobashi Mahou Shoutengai. Mind you that she does have a wide vocal range- she can basically be convincing as an-y type of fe-male cha-rac-ter and eve-ry kind of lit-tle boy- Birdy the Mighty: Decode really gave her a workout! One of the reasons she is used so often in anime is because she can nail a character's voice after hearing only a few seconds of footage of the Japanese, with no effort.
    • She was also the voice of Duck/Princess Tutu in Princess Tutu, so she definitely has her moments of evading the Action Girl character role every so often.
  • Do you need a voice for a small, cute, sidekick type character? Well look no further than Brina Palencia who's known for doing many Cross-Dressing Voices like Chaotzu, Chopper, and Tamama. At this rate, she might end up being the next Mona Marshall, although that's not necessarily a bad thing.
  • When it comes to game voices, look no further than Charles Martinet. Since he's been hired as Mario's voice, he's never really done much else than voicing Mario, Luigi, Wario, Waluigi, their baby counterparts and occasionally someone else. Okay, that's not completely true, he also voiced some completely unrelated characters in other games (just as Star Wars), but the vast majority of his work is Mario and Crew. Not that he seems to mind.
  • Leah Clark usually voices either cute valley girls or nerdy young boys. Her valley girls include Blair from Soul Eater and Marron from Dragon Ball Z. Her nerdy young boys include Coby in One Piece and Fuyuki in Sgt. Frog.
  • Also The Voice of God, the late Don LaFontaine—5,000 movie trailers and nearly 350,000 commercials; the most successful Voice Actor of all time. (The "In a World... where (X) verbs (Y)... one man... will verb." guy.)
    • LaFontaine's distinctive voice was lampshaded in an early trailer for Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy:

Narrator (The Guide (Stephen Fry)): As the trailer is being played, they will typically be narrated (Voice changes to Don Lafontaine's) in a deep voice that sounds like a seven-foot-tall man who's been smoking cigarettes since childhood.

Akito: What's wrong with running away, anyway?


Japanese Seiyuu[edit | hide]



Spanish actores de doblaje[edit | hide]

  • Salvador Vidal. Arguably the most well-known male voice in Spain, even though his name isn't nearly as publicly famous as Constantino Romero or Ramón Langa. He has voiced most of Holywood mature stars of the last 40 years: George Clooney, Harrison Ford, and Michael Douglas are just a few examples. Not to mention that he is insanely prolific in advertising, which gives a lot of people the impression that he is practically everywhere.
  • Constantino Romero. Probably the most famous voice actor in Spain, since, unlike most voice actors in the country, most people know his face due to his work as a successful TV host. Also, some of the most famous pop culture classics has been voiced by him. For starters, he's Clint Eastwood's regular voice actor. Then he was The Terminator in all three movies, Mufasa, Judge Claude Frollo... and Darth F***** Vader.
  • Jordi Brau. One of the most chameleonlike voice actors in Spain and probably the world. He's the usual voice actor for Tom Hanks, Tom Cruise, Robin Williams, and Steven Seagal, just to name a few.
  • Luis Posada. With his soft natural voice and incredible range, he has dubbed a lot of attractive young adults and a lot of wacky comedy actors with equally awesome results. Famous actors dubbed by him are Leonardo DiCaprio, Johnny Depp (whom he nails every single time, including Jack Sparrow), John Cusack, Jim Carrey, and Chris Rock. He also was Quasimodo's voice.
  • Nuria Mediavilla has dub SO MANY attractive women that half of the female elite of Hollywood has been voiced by her at some point: Uma Thurman, Angelina Jolie, Cameron Diaz, Salma Hayek, Kate Winslet, Winona Ryder, etc, etc... Some consider her, not only one of the best voice actresses in Spain, but one of the best voice actresses in the world.
  • Marta Barbará. Usually she dubs teenagers and young adult women and is Scarlett Johansson's usual VA in Spain.
  • Nuria Trifol. She is one of the most prolific voice actresses for children and female teenagers in Spain, although she's perfectly capable of adult women. Extra points for being also in practically every single Spanish anime dubbing recorded in Barcelona, and doing important roles most of the time. In fact, she has appeared even more in Catalonian dubs. She's also Keira Knightley's usual voice actress in Spain.
  • Graciela Molina. She rivals Nuria Trifol in the most prolific voice actress for children and female teenagers, although she's a little bit more focused in young adult women and way more in live action. Fun fact: both actresses act together often in female friends and kid siblings roles, and both of them dub Natalie Portman regularly.
    • The Natalie Portman part has an anecdote: Molina voiced Padme in Episode I, while Trifol voiced her decoy (performed by Keira Knightley). However, this led to a confusion in Lucasfilm, making them to cast Trifol for Episodes II and III.
  • Luis Bajo. The same as Salvador Vidal, but in TV Shows rather than film. He's also becoming the Spaniard equivalent of Nolan North in video games (although he has a wider range of voices than North). During the last three years or so, it seems like he's everywhere in digital media.
  1. Heck, some of the voice actors listed in this trope page is also listed in the Man of a Thousand Voices page as well
