Happy birthday B.J. Ward!!!

IMO, she was perfect as Scarlett, Wonder Woman, Jayna, Betty Ross and Alicia Masters, and she was also pretty good as Medusa. I also enjoyed her as Cyrene in the 1988 Superman cartoon.

My favorite role of hers is Allura in Voltron. I know she played Velma but I did not know she was Judy Jetson and Betty Rubble too. She was also in a PS1 game called Alundra 2 as princess Alexia she was great in that too. Very talented and underated

I'm pretty curious if she wants to do Koume & Kotake in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U/3DS

I know of at least two young women in my area who are named Jana after Jana of the Jungle. When a mother will name her daughter after an animated character, that character has touched the heart. Kudos to B.J. Ward, the late Doug Wildey, and all the other talents behind Jana.

I saw BJ perform years ago in a small cabaret club in West Hollywood. I saw Helen Hunt and Sarah Jessica Parker there also, but I did not know BJ was Helen's stepmom!

BJ did a song in which she performed many of her popular voiceover characters! She also performed an opera aria that was fantastic.

Is that a current picture, if so she has aged beautifully.

@Music Meister It's a few years old, but she looks pretty much the same now (she made a recent Voltron appearance at a convention). I agree that she looks fantastic for her age.

She really needs to be in more stuff. It's a shame she's not quite as active as she used to be.
