A.K.A. Stephanie Ann Nadolny

Favorite Role: Kid Goku

Of German decent

Her inspiration for her East Kai voice was her Aunt.

Idol: Donna Summer (who inspired her to take a singing career)

Also auditioned for Chi-Chi, Bulma, Chiaotzu, Android 18, Videl, and Goten.

Says she would like to play more female roles, as she is mostly cast as young males.

Her fiance proposed to her in Sidney, Australia while on a trip to the Supernova Anime Convention.

Was the original singer for both the Dragon Ball Ending, and the Blue Gender ending. She was replaced on both counts by Daphne Gere after the Japanese producers of Dragon Ball thought it was inappropriate for the voice of Goku to sing the ending theme.

Anyone know what happened to her? She sorta dropped off the voiceover scene for a while. And what was the reasoning behind her being replaced as K.O.
said at 5:17 AM on Tue Jan 30 2018
@Shaun Ince Probably to focus more on her music career (I assume)

@Shaun Ince I heard somewhere it was because of drunk driving.

Happy Birthday, Stephanie Nadolny! Even today I still can't get enough of her performances as Kid Son Goku, though with that being said, her Gohan has grown off me. She's sadly an underutilized voice actress, though if her K.O. is anything to go by, that role will potentially open up more doors for Nadolny in the future.

@WakaDub40 Her voice for Cynthia Fullerton in Lupin III is spot on. She was a natural in that role. Very underrated.

Am I the only one who misses her as young Gohan and young Goku? How come she isn't doing anymore funimation dubbed roles?
said at 6:50 PM on Sat Oct 31 2015
@AmericanBuizel I miss her too. She was the perfect voice for Goku and Gohan, but when she didn't return for Kai I got so piss off because this new lady sounds so annoying.
said at 12:45 AM on Fri Nov 20 2015
@Nigsonic I can agree. Whenever I watch FUNimation dubbed kai, I always feel like I'm watching an episode of One Piece, and you can thank young Gohan's current VA for that, considering that she also voices Luffy from the FUNimation dub of One Piece....

Happy Birthday Stephanie Nadonly!

Her Goku/Gohan was classic. I agree with PsychicVoiceSpy It's a shame she hasn't been able to get more roles, hopefully it'll change in the (not too distant) future.

It's pretty awesome that she's returning to voice acting voicing K.O in O.K K.O! Let's Be Heroes.

It's just nice whenever lesser used talents get a HUGE second chance, perhaps this might be opening even more doors for her in the future.

Happy Birthday Stephanie Nadolny!

She really needs to do more roles in the future other than Kid Goku, Gohan and others.

@SteelEthlan That is unless FUNimation can rehire her to voice more characters in other types of anime that they were currently licensing for, they did that with Linda on Attack on Titans maybe they should do the same to Steph here.

Happy birthday, Stephanie! It's a dang crying shame she hasn't gotten more voice-acting opportunities lately. She has such an excellent, distinct, lovable little boy voice and a nice amount of vocal range. She still has a big nostalgic part in my childhood, and it would make me incredibly happy to hear her in anime/cartoons again (PLEASE LET THAT HAPPEN!!!).

Stephanie actually appears in a Cartoon Network pilot called Lakewood Plaza Turbo as a character named KO using her Gohan/Goku voice. Unfortunately, there seems to be no available credits or sources for me to provide to prove this. Still, anyone who hasn't seen it, look it up, if you're a big fan of her like me I'm sure you'll get a kick out of it.
