Happy Birthday Veronica Taylor!!!

Easily one of my favorite voice actors I listened to in the 4Kids era. Loved her voice over work as Ash Ketchum, May and Delia Ketchum in "Pokemon" and more recently Sailor Pluto in "Sailor Moon". Hope to see her continue gaining more voice over work this year. :)

Once again, I think Veronica was one of 4Kids' best voice actors. She really made Ash, May, and Delia his own, as well as others like April O'Neil. Thankfully, unlike others I actually liked from that talent pool though, I'm happy for Taylor, because she's been getting more voice work recently, like Sailor Pluto, and I think the move to LA she made (as did Rachael Lillis beforehand) was a smart decision on her part, since New York's dubbing scene is dying in recent years.

Here's hoping she gets more work from Viz, because truthfully I always like hearing from her.

Hope 2016 will be the year she has a lot of LA projects being released.

Her move to LA is bitter-sweet in a way... I think she stayed in New York longer than she should have (with the dubbing work drying up) on the 0.000000001% chance she might be able to voice Ash again someday in Pokemon. Sadly since TPTB don't care about quality she probably accepted the reality of the situation and decided to move on to bigger opportunities and a change of scenery.

Best of luck Miss Taylor, you definitely deserve good things to come your way.

Probably unlikely but would be neat if she was one of the Hunter x Hunter leads.

Since she's already working on the Sailor Moon dub at Studiopolis maybe she got cast as Kaguya Otsutsuki in Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 :)

@Omar_Lopez Agreed, she is one of my favorite voice actresses from the 4Kids era, was hoping she would gain more roles after moving to LA earlier this year, but guess it took a while to get her feet wet in LA, after the move. Not to mention it took Sean Schemmel to get a lot more LA roles in 1 1/2-2 years time, here's to hope she gains more major voice over work in 2016.

Also, what does TPTB mean?

Now that she's living in LA, I'd like to hear her also providing some voice over work in Texas with Funimation like other LA based actors such as Patrick Seitz, Lauren Landa, Matthew Mercer & Johnny Yong Bosh.

She was really the heart of the Pokemon dub: without her, it's just lacking a lot of its soul and emotion for me.

I'm glad to hear that she's going to voice Sailor Pluto in the Viz Sailor Moon dub, though: hopefully she gets more VA work in Los Angeles as a result of that in general, too.

Happy Birthday Veronica Taylor!

You were such a delight to meet last year at the Ottawa Comic Con, so nice, friendly and very down to earth.

Still to this date It blows my mind that she voiced both Ash and May in Pokemon, two of the main characters and neither sound anything like each other. I have so many fond memories of the 4Kids dub of Pokemon and it's a crime you still haven't been given the chance to come back. Delia's voice is easily one of the best mom voices I've ever heard.

Amelia Wil Tesla Seyruun is another role I absolutely adore of yours, such a funny and endearing character.

I'm also glad that you finally made the move to LA and got cast as Sailor Pluto. I can already see this working perfectly and I eagerly await to hear it when R's dub finally comes out. I hope we'll see you in a lot more anime in LA as well as some cartoons and video games down the line.

Her Sailor Pluto is absolutely perfect in just about every way, striking a perfect balance of mature yet youthful, she is without a doubt The Best English voice this character has ever had (not that there was much competition to begin with she blows all of the other voices right out of the water), not only a standout from the Viz dub of the series but also one of the best in her career.

I also liked her other roles in the series including Unazaki Furuhata (where she re-uses her May voice, which is sweet) as well as Katarina and Janelyn.

I also love her performance as April O'Neil in the 2003 TMNT cartoon, which that too is also my favourite voice for the character and the young Griffith in Berserk.

I'm really glad she's moved to LA and got a major role in one of my favourite series, I'm hoping eventually she'll make it into other anime series and other major cartoons series.

Anyways Happy Birthday Veronica Taylor! One of my favourite VA's and all round people I've ever had the pleasure to meet.

Seriously if she's ever attending a convention not too far from your neck of the woods, please do go out of your way to meet her, lovely woman in every way.

What are you doing nowadays Veronica? I miss the good old days when you were Ash Ketchum? You didn't deserve to be replaced like that! If I was an actor who lost a role so dear to me, I'd really get upset with the jerks who replace me. So upset, I'd have them sued for life!

Let me say this Veronica. I am a true fan of Pokemon that believes in you. Things went downhill when you got replaced. I'm planning a special gift for you, but I might take a while. If this makes you feel any better, I have a plan that can help you do Pokemon again. I'll tell you once you respond to my message to you.

She'll always be Ash, May, and Ash's Mom to me. She was an excellent VA for the Pokemon dub, and I can't thank 4Kids enough for casting and directing her so well in the role. :')

DuArt really needs to let her come back. And those who believe they won't let her back because she was antagonizing them and supporting SOVA - they let the unfortunatley, late Maddie Blaustein return, and she caused even more trouble than Veronica.

@Animefan98 What is/was SOVA?
Dr.Who
said at 12:13 PM on Sun Nov 29 2015
@Scrappy-Fan92
SOVA was/is basically a fan campaign to bring back the original 4Kids English actors, and it's still apparently going on FaceBook (by that, I mean it's really just there to be there rather than them doing anything now), although I really don't know what they hope to achieve seeing as Veronica Taylor and Rachael Lillis are in California now, Eric Stuart's in Tennessee, etc.

That said, I fully agree with the sentiments the group has, and I think what TPCi did to the 4Kids crew was unfair- here's basically a video a YouTube user uploaded explaining what exactly I'm talking about: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dgtD7ABLASU

she's the best. i love her as Ash, but when i hear some of her other work it's like i'm hearing him.

i feel that she was perfect for May's voice in Pokemon, it sucks they replaced her.

Some other trivia is her favourite Pokemon movie she voiced Ash in was the first movie :). She says so on Youtube. It really touched her heart that one so she said she liked it most :). It is my fave too

On another note, I adore her voice. Pokemon was the first anime I ever saw..heck..maybe even the first tv show too! I get a little sad when I think of her because Pokemon was a happy part of my life and she was part of it and knowing Pokemon changed so much after they got rid of her and the other main voice actors it broke my heart. I'm 20 now and I still love Pokemon (well, when she was still voicing). It just isn't the same without her.

People say she is shy about the fact she voiced a boy because of how she covers her mouth when she voices him in public. I don't think so, I think she does it to get his voice out right

Not to make her feel old, but this woman was basically my childhood. :)

Hopefully someday TPTB will let her voice Ash again.

Nice to know fans still remember her work on Pokemon (watch convention videos on youtube and you see massive lineups to get her autograph).

I missed a great opportunity to meet her at Fan Expo Canada recently so I hope she returns to another Toronto convention in the future.

My 5 favorite roles of hers (at the moment) are:
- Ash Ketchum (Pokemon)
- Amelia (Slayers)
- Delia Ketchum (Pokemon)
- May (Pokemon)
- Carly (Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's)
