Happy Birthday Mary Elizabeth McGlynn!!

She does an amazing job at voicing Motoko Kusanagi in Ghost in the Shell.

In addition, she is a fantastic ADR voice director director who directed some of our favorite english dubs of anime namely "Cowboy Bebop" and the "Naruto" series, among others.

So good luck for more future roles to come.

Happy birthday to Mary Elizabeth McGlynn. Actress, singer, voice director, first time D&D with an awesome tiefling named Zahra Hydris from Critical Role. Even got the famous Matthew Mercer's "how do you want to do this?" to land the final blow.

Happy Birthday Mary Elizabeth McGlynn!

She's got one of the most badass, deep and sexy sounding voices I've ever heard. Her all time best role has to be Major Motoko Kusanagi in Ghost in the Shell, she fits this no-nonsense chick to a freakin' tee. It's easily one of the most perfect dub casting fits I've ever seen, and is just as great as Atsuko Tanaka is in the role, no doubt she's her English counterpart for so many reasons.

I also love her performances as Cornelia li Britannia, Queen Metalia, Julia, Dr. Maheswaran, Mischa, Maria Hill, Abigail Brand, Briggs Doctor and Twinkle Maria Murdock.

It's pretty awesome that she's starting to work for FUNimation. I await all future roles she'll get there.

@Autovolt

I hope she gets a role in both One Piece and Fairy Tail pretty soon. If so, that would complete her Grand Slam of the Anime Big 4. :-)

She is a terrific actress and director.

Don't mean to delve into her personal life, but is she divorced from Daran Norris? This is because I was listened to Rob Paulsen's podcast.

Just found out her and Steve Blum are a couple now. So the voices of Spike and Julia from Cowbooy Bebop are together after all these years. PERFECT.

@Soldierkei isn't she married to Darran Norris

@Domayv not any more. I remember on Talkin' Toons, I dont remember what guest, Rob referred to her as Darran's ex, but I took that with a grain of salt. But in the lastest talking toons, where she and Steve were guests, they said they're a couple.

@Metabad No, cuz Lex was Kenshiro and Yuria was Ken's girlfriend first.

Usually don't pay that much attention to women's voices in anime - too girly and high-pitched. But then I was introduced to Saru (Monkey) in Bleach. Absolutely fantastic!

Actually, I always listen Mary's voice on Mizukage on NARUTO Shippuden.

I like Mary's voice so much!!

In My Opinion: She should have been the voice of Lady Une from "Mobile Suit Gundam Wing".

Her Motoko reminds me of Lori Alans role as the boss in MSG3. Maybe its just me but the characters sound alike to me

Whenever I heard Mary's voice, I feel like she would make an awesome Rouge The Bat. She nails the sexiest down perfectly without trying.

Her performance as Motoko Kusanagi made me a fan of Ghost In The Shell. Just the right toughness and yet with a gentle side.
She deserves the voice actors equivilent of the Oscar
