Was there a reason why she stopped voicing Tails in 2013?

Happy 45th birthday Kate. Shame you're not voicing Tails in Sonic Boom though.

I always had doubts about Hynden being Talim because she never seemed to do other non-union work. So, what finally confirmed that it was really Kate?
NCZ (Admin)
said at 8:52 PM on Sat Aug 2 2014
@Nightmare Crusher I noticed that Talim sounds exactly the same as Arietta from Tales of the Abyss, which was also done by Cup of Tea. Compare the clip above to this voice collection, and it's definitely the same voice actress.

said at 8:58 AM on Sun Aug 3 2014
@Nightmare Crusher
To add, it's potentially due to a chronological bias. In 2005 most of us were only just starting to know who she was thanks to a certain pink-haired shinobi. Her being Talim could also be considered her foot in the door at Cup of Tea, leading to her many Tales roles. We simply didn't know her for her softer roles, and Talho, CC, etc. only proved to further the gap.

That said, I was fooled like the rest at the first line of "Some things can only be conveyed through battle." Starfire was quite the nitch-filler, you see.
said at 10:54 AM on Fri Aug 22 2014
@NCZ Wait isn't Hynden Talim it's confirmed as a role of hers on IMDB I always though Hyden was Talim
NCZ (Admin)
said at 11:09 AM on Fri Aug 22 2014
@BoondocksXAfrofan No, it's not her. There's a lot of fake info about the Soulcalibur voice actors floating around that is only recently starting to be corrected, albeit slowly. IMDB is not a reliable source as it is user-submitted. In fact, it's where a lot of the fake info comes from (that tidbit about Jennifer Hale supposedly being Tira will not die...)

As mentioned above, Talim's voice is identical to Arietta's in Tales of the Abyss, as well as being very close to many of Kate Higgins' other roles.
said at 11:17 AM on Fri Aug 22 2014
@NCZ Oh ok I apologize for that I'm just really shocked that's all t lolz but ok also so did Kate herself confirmed it? is she also Vidiri too from kid icarus ? I like both Kate and Hynden and this news certainly took me by surprised. Overall since Kate is Talim then that just shows you that she's a very talented versatile actor and she can sing too.
NCZ (Admin)
said at 5:36 PM on Fri Aug 22 2014
@BoondocksXAfrofan Kate Higgins hasn't officially confirmed being Talim, but her facebook fanpage includes Arietta as one of her roles, so there you go.

Yes, Hynden Walch was Viridi. I'm not sure if you knew this already, but you go on any page and click on a green checkmark, then an image pops up showing the source of the credit, meaning the credit has been officially verified. Hynden as Viridi is one such role, as it is confirmed by the game's end credits.
said at 6:42 PM on Fri Aug 22 2014
I'm curious. What's your vice against Hale? You seem unusually defensive about this actress rather than the role in question.

Sure they've been saying this since the start, but if they know someone well enough to say so can it really be all that far off from the truth?

Unlike Walch Hale has precedent to be in this game. No one complained about Freeman and Wahlgren... and that's because their characters never became the controversial trainwrecks Tira did. It's only because Tira's replacement was underground and the effect her new gameplay gimmick had was overestimated by everyone that doubt arose and this whole mess started.

One Lynn Marie Harris has taught me to read the voice first, then the context/company. I find it far more lucrative and much less prone to hesitation than limiting myself to some undefinable range. That's how I've dealt with all of these uncredited cases. You can't hide what's inside.

I don't even pay any mind to that letter that supposedly exists 'cuz, quite frankly, I wouldn't even need it.

Besides, if there's one line that really comes off as Hale-ish, it's this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pmt-8CN7Xv0#t=48s

@rosebr10 I don't have anything against Jennifer Hale. I'm moreso against people who believe it's her in IV and V since it's 100% not her there. I can't speak for who it is in III.

There is a difference with Crispin Freeman and Kari Wahlgren, and that is that they had a wide breadth of non-union work before SCIII came out--not just in video games but with anime. It was after 2005 that they (and Steve Blum, but he's not in the games) stopped and have since exclusively worked on union projects (going off on a tangent though, Kari Wahlgren has at least two non-union roles post-2005, but that's about it).

On the other hand, I can't find anything that officially confirms Jennifer Hale working on anything non-union during that timeframe. I realise she was in the Cowboy Bebop movie, but that was a union production unlike the series. If there was 100% established precedent for Jennifer Hale working non-union prior to SCIII, I'd be more inclined to believe it. At this point, I have reason to be skeptical as the situations are very different.

As well, we try to be a factual site, and so if I have reason to doubt something, I'd prefer not to go all the way and risk spreading misinformation. After all, I recall many being dead certain about Nicole Karrer being Naoto in Persona 4, and that turned out to be untrue after spreading like wildfire.

So what does that make Michael Gough?
NCZ (Admin)
said at 6:22 AM on Fri Sep 5 2014
@rosebr10 Michael Gough actually has precedent for working non-union. He was Mitsuhide Akechi in Samurai Warriors 1, as confirmed by his resume and an interview with the Koei Warriors fansite.

going by how she sounded with Momiji in Ninja Gaiden, I feel like shes going to be amazing as Sailor Mercury
said at 7:07 AM on Mon Jul 7 2014
So she used to voice Tails and now Sailor Mercury? Kind of random but now I wonder who's smarter XD anyway, I believe she'll be great!

Shame you aren't voicing Tails anymore :( You were without a doubt, the best voice he ever had, hands down, and I'm glad your voice for the character was so spot-on that Colleen V. seems to be taking after it.

Although I haven't been a Naruto fan for couple of years, she gave great acting as Sakura, and her deadpan Karin from Bleach was pretty darn amusing too. I'm not really into Sonic either, but her Tails voice shows she's plenty versatile as well.

I feel she deserves more pre-lay voice work for big-name cartoons and games. :)

Tails might have the best Tails voice since the kid who played him in Sonic SatAM. And we don't normally hear her playing young boys.

Also, I friggin' love that she did Toph, one of my favorite Avatar characters, in Legend of Korra.
