Laura always surprises me. Unfortunately, I first listened to some of her weaker roles, so I wasn't a big fan. But after seeing her leading roles in a few anime and video games, I have to say that she rocks. Excellent depth and range in many performances.

My favorite roles of hers are definitely Fiona and Lust.

@ZeldaS If I remember correctly a large portion of Dishonored 2's voice cast was officially announced a little over a month ago, and if that's anything to go off of, Laura is not in Dishonored 2's cast at all, as Emily was stated to be voiced by someone else.

Happy Birthday Laura Bailey!! Easily one of the best and versatile voice actresses in the voice over industry. I admire the amount of emotion and range she puts in on the numerous characters she voices in from Anime, Video games, and Pre-lay animation. It is also incredible how she had a smooth transition from doing voiceover work at Funimation in Texas to becoming one of the most recognizable voice over names in LA.

Loved her performances as Maka Albarn, Lust, Tohru, Lucina, just to name a few.

Have a Happy Memorial Day Laura, and good luck on future endeavors in voice over.

@CuriousUserX90 Something that's worth explaining is what's happened to that on the Main Page that lists a VA at Random for whose Birthday as it is, as well as remembering a Late VA. It doesn't need to be shown everywhere.

Happy Birthday to my favorite actress! Her voice is every bit as beautiful as she is and her performances truly have some very powerful emotion behind them. She nailed Maka's strong, but sweet personality and Lust's seductive but sinister personality. Her screaming in both roles was also blood-curdling and you could tell how dedicated she was. However, my favorite role of hers has to be Kushina. You could tell that she put her heart and soul into that performance and it's still tough for me not to get teary-eyes when I listen to it. I truly cannot praise her performance enough. One of the best I've ever seen. It's also pretty cool that she shares her birthday with my other favorite VA, Liam O'Brien.

Happy Birthday Laura! Seriously one of the absolute best voice actresses in recent years. I still can't get over how versatile she is. Just when I think I have her range narrowed down, she goes and surprises me again. So, I'm watching the first episode of Kurokami, I recognize her as Kuro. A very cutesy and fitting voice for this chara....wait she was that mother early in the episode too?! Probably the lowest I've heard her go.

It's also interesting how her natural speaking voice sounds NOTHING like Lust, who sounds nothing like Maka, who sounds nothing like The Boss, who sounds nothing like Trunks, who sounds nothing like Keiko, who sounds nothing like Kuro, and so forth.

Happy Birthday, Laura Bailey. I've been hearing this lady's voice for quite a while now and she's most certainly come a long way. My favorite Bailey roles are Maka Albarn, Shin Nohara, Black Widow, Lust, Lucina, Trunks, Rise Kujikawa, the Female Player in Saints Row the Third, Chun-Li, Serah Farron, Tier Hallibel, Sabato Mihashigo, and Christie. Keep doing what it is that you excel at and always be a family woman, Laura :3

She is such a talented actress who can all ways put a smile on my face, from her laugh to her smile, even from her being funny like in the latest power puff girl episode she guess star in, she always makes me happy even a lot of her characters are some of my personal fav too. So what I want to say it thank you for making me happy, & I hope she enjoys her birthday.

It's worth noting that both her & Travis Willingham seem to be cast less in anime & are being cast in more video games these days. I get the feeling that even they will go the way of Troy Baker soon where they won't dub anime anymore. It's happening gradually but it does explain why she wouldn't have been able to reprise her Rise from Persona for one game. That being said, she has come a long way from her early days at Funimation.

Credit where it's due, many VAs have an excellent range and do an excellent job. But Laura is truly something else, always superb and brings a range of vocal talent that's simply next to impossible to beat. It's amazing her number of credits and characters that sound nothing like any other she's done.

Always on her A-game and never one to "phone it in" so to speak, it's easy for most anyone to see why her fan base is so broad and devoted. She's just amazing, all the time. And she lends her talent to areas of entertainment for us with such a broad stroke, you just never know when you might get to hear, or see, her next!

Would love to meet her one day - she's definitely in my top 5 VAs ever, hands down. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Same (well, minus the "girly" part), but I'll give them credit in that at least Saban still has an idea how to cast good voice actors in their dubs, despite them being stuck in the 90s with dubbing style (same goes for others, though, to this day, not specific to them at all).

@NCZ Technically, yes. However, RWBY is heavily inspired by anime. Plus, it's recorded in Austin, which is a free-working state, meaning that all VO projects down there are non-union. Either way, I'm always happy to hear her voice.

@BioZero216 "all VO projects down there are non-union".

IIRC, right-to-work states simply allow non-union workers in union productions.

This basically exempts people from having to be union members, thus allowing producers to use sweatshop talent for their major projects.

It does NOT mean that Tom Kane, Dameon Clarke, or Crispin Freeman can visit Texas & do anime...lol

@Autovolt Not too sure about that. I don't see any Union only VA's in the cast, and while she hasn't done much lately, she is still ficore. I'm just glad to have her in an anime again. I feel like it's been years since I've heard that gorgeous voice in a dub.

said at 7:33 PM on Thu Jan 7 2016
@Autovolt While the whole speculation on who is a union VA is shaky at best(not only that but a lack of info) the one way you can usually tell when an anime uses unionized VA's is seeing whether or not Steve Blum, Crispin Freeman or Kari Wahlgren are in the dubs themselves.

I certainly agree. It's lame she hasn't be reprising many of her roles, but once you start landing those big AAA games and pre-lay, you have to weight the options you have. Anime pay is still to this game insultingly low and it get's under my skin just how low it is.
Unknownsage13
said at 10:30 PM on Fri Sep 4 2015
@Gaddes Also it's the scheduling for anime. I remember when Troy Baker was interviewed on why Kanji was recast with Matthew Mercer midway through the Persona 4 anime. Troy basically said the anime schedule is super strict and that he had to leave for a week for his honeymoon.
Chances are Laura is just sick of the schedule. And would rather have the more lenient videogame hours.
huzaifa_ahmed
said at 12:22 PM on Mon Dec 28 2015
@Unknownsage13

"Bad" scheduling tends to be due to "strategic" budgeting. You schedule the studio (Studiopolis, BZ, etc.) for a certain amount of hours, & haul in as many folks as you can cram in that day. Re-scheduling is not a luxury they can afford.

Both this issue and the volunteer-esque pay for dubbing voice-over, is based in the offensively low dubbing budgets overall.

I believe the companies don't take it seriously, due to being post-production, as opposed to an actual part of the show.

After all, even Disney's Doraemon only ever got previously involved actors, Stitch not getting the cast back from L&S. Europe-dubs also only have Bryce, Strassman, Thornton, etc.

So, it's not really about limited appeal, niche audience, etc.

The only time we get massive-budget (non-celebrity) productions are for American-funded stuff, like IGPX/Afro Samurai.


I'm not exactly sure how Japanese dubbing business practice works, with A-listers like Ono, Hayashibara, Wakamoto, commonly dubbing Tim Curry or Tara Strong. Not sure why this is...

@TheMorganBerry Maybe it's not hopeless. Maybe she's just taking a long break from anime. Lex Lang was gone from it for years, and he eventually came back, just recently. At least she reprised Maka in Soul Eater Not. Maybe it's a start.

DisneyAnimefan1995

@Unknownsage13 I'm with you on what you said, It's been a while since Laura Bailey has appeared in a new anime title (aside from her reprisal as Maka in Soul Eater Not! and continuing her anime roles in Digimon Fusion and Naruto Shippuden) and would love to hear her voice again.

Unfortunately, due to the lucrative high demand video games have to offer including those of the AAA genre, along with the fact that the pay scale is a lot higher than anime, this makes things more difficult for her due to schedule conflicts and having to turn down new anime roles, especially if it's a character she voiced before.

I understand that she is moving on to Large Grandeur projects that will satisfy her wages, and I respect her wishes as a voice actress, I just hope she isn't moving on from anime voice acting for good, and maybe it's what BioZero said she could be taking a "hiatus" from anime voice acting.

@Unknownsage13 A year late, but Laura was a minor character in Durarara back in 2010. I know you meant s2 though. Anyhow, Hollywood's union rate for dubbing is still like *nothing*, which is why even the thousands of small-time LA actors dont take part in it. It just doesnt pay living wage, union or otherwise. Just a step up from fan work, according to Ben Diskin.

It is really cool that Ben is both "one of us" as well as an awesome VA.

Happy Birthday Laura!! Always a joy to listen to! She's played a wide range of characters like Lucina, Lust, Maka Albarn, Abigail "Fetch" Walker, The Boss, Black Widow (Lego Marvel), Catwoman, Marlene Angel, Kuro, Keiko Yukimura, Dahlia Mason, Kanako Kasugazaki, Hiromi Anzai, Firestar, and Helena Harper among many others!!!

Also, it's just really cool that she and Travis Willingham are married. That's like the voice acting equivalent of Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner!!!

Happy Birthday Laura Bailey!

She is incredible and it's really not hard to see why she's one of the more popular VA's here and in general. She's got an amazing vocal range that can be cute or sexy, looks gorgeous and is really sweet too.

My top two favourite roles of hers couldn't be any further apart from each other. Maka Albarn, a cute kind yet badass bookworm heroine who carries a scythe and then there's Lust, a evil though somewhat sympathetic and tragic homunculus that is as deadly as she is gorgeous.

I also loved her as Lucina, Pao-Lin Huang/Dragon Kid, Trunks, Dieter, Leite Jokin, Rakshata Chawla, Kanako Kasugazaki, Black Widow, Firestar, Abigal Brand, Catwoman, Poison Ivy, Harley Quinn, Wonder Woman, Chun-Li, Platinum the Trinity and The Boss.

There are still a lot of roles of hers I have yet to see and I plan on checking them out in the near future.

also Travis Willingham is one of the luckiest guys alive being married to a woman like Laura.

As much as I don't care for most "Americanized" dubs, I actually rather enjoyed her performance as Emily/Miyuki Hoshizora/Cure Happy in Glitter Force/Smile PreCure! It was cool to hear her in a new dub though at the same time it just made me wish she was in Sailor Moon instead.

I also loved her performances as Keiko Yukimura, Schrodinger and Kanako Kasugazaki.

I also loved that she came back as Maka Albarn for Soul Eater Not! It gives me hope that if we do get another Soul Eater anime, she'll return for it too.

Happy Birthday Laura Bailey!

Laura Bailey is one of the best, talented & Beautiful Actresses I have ever meant/Heard/Seen. She is my Celebrity Crush. But of course she is a great talented voice actress from her cartoon, movies, and video games, even commercials now, but of fantastic in anime. Even when she is in some thing not good (Cg Swan princess, Final Fantasy XIII, Digimon fusion, Lego Super hero projects, Super hero Squad Etc.) She still brings a fun performance & that's what I love about her. She also plays some of my favorites characters in various series. From: Lucina, Tohru Honda Maka, Lust, Black widow (yes from that weak excuse of a avengers show), Kushina, Cheria, Keiko, Rise Etc. Bottom line she is a fantastic person & a fantastic talented. I hope to see her in more roles. She is just so fantastic.

Happy late birthday to the lovely Laura Bailey. While I just started listening to her anime work, she is one of my all time favorites in the business (beaten only by her father's brother's nephew's cousin's former roommate). She also did this interview last year which put voice acting in a different perspective for me, because I've been a little peeved recently about the increase in celebrity voice actors. It was a nice read and made me appreciate her a lot more not only as an actress, but as a person.

One of the most prominent female leads in the industry, my personal favorite roles of hers would have to be Tohru Honda (Fruits Basket), Trunks (DB franchise), Serah Farron (Final Fantasy), Chun-Li (SFIV onwards), and Henrietta (Gunslinger Girl).

Enjoyed your voice work on Star Wars Tor as Kira Carsen, I have not played through the whole storyline yet, but I have enjoyed what i have so far.

Hoping to get some of your Anime work soon to hear your voice acting. Would enjoy hearing about how you enjoy the voice work and what you have planned next.
