Talia al Ghul is the daughter of Ra's Al Ghul, and a major love interest of Batman. She is often torn between the love for her father, one of Batman's enemies, and Batman, himself. Talia is a deadly hand-to-hand combat fighter and skilled with firearms and swords.

Helen Slater did a wonderful job as Talia, vocal allurement and accent, alike.

Olivia Hussey also did a great job, a slightly different accent than her predecessor, but very good, nonetheless.

Andrea Bowen is probably the weakest of the bunch so far, however, it was a very good attempt at sounding like a real lady killer. Like Olivia, her accent is a little different, having a more English tone to it, but still nice.

Stana Katic, like Helen, did a wonderful job at making Talia sound enchanting and irresistible. Her accent was top notch as well; just a wonderful performance.

Ellie McBride, like many of the actors in DC Universe Online, was decent at best. She did manage to sound villainous and while I can hear this as one possible voice for Talia, the accent and overall performance was a tad lackluster.

While all of them did a great job, personally, I'll have to go with Stana for this one, with Helen as a close second, Olivia as third, and Andrea as a decent fourth.

Anyone else find it weird that in a lot of Talia's appearance, she has an accent but Ra's doesn't?

And even when both have an accent they don't always sound like the same accent
said at 5:14 PM on Wed Jan 28 2015
@Music Meister - Yeah, what's with that?
said at 2:01 PM on Mon Jan 26 2015
Waht happened with Morena Baccarin as Talia? She was good as Talia and Cheetah, but not so muvh as Talia. Sticking with Katic.

Stana Katic should just go play Talia Al Ghul in live-action!

Stana Katic by far. Helen Slater and Olivia Hussey were lovely performances, but Stana delivered a more well rounded performance that suits the character better.

I also like Andrea Bowen as a younger Talia, and Ellie, despite having a stiff acting performance, has some level of enjoyment to her take on the character.

Morena however.... I'm sorry, but this was just plain bad. Very stilted with no level of power to her voice at all. Maybe she could have done better with adequate direction, but she just felt miscast.

I think Vanessa Marshall would make a pretty good Talia

Helen is my favourite here.

Stana is 2nd while Olivia is 3rd.

Morena is just decent cause she used a natural voice which is not what Talia should sound like.

Andrea & Ellie were both miscasts to me.

I've never been a of Morena, this performance does not change my opinion

Katic edges out Slater with the more authentic accent.

Olivia Hussey was better here than in S:TAS, but I know her first as Lt. Kasin Moor of the Imperial 128th TIE Interceptor Squadron.

Can't wait for Morena Baccarin's take.
said at 3:49 PM on Sun Feb 2 2014
@TheVengeanceKnight Me too, though I wanna see if she has an accent or not for Talia (That's REALLY important.)
said at 10:15 AM on Thu Nov 21 2013
Helen and Stana both nail the accent perfectly. But I also really like Olivia. I voted for Stana (Mostly because I wanna see her play Talia on-camera)
said at 8:57 PM on Mon Oct 28 2013
I'd go with Stana Katic because of the accent that Talia Al Ghul and Ra's should possess LOL
said at 7:11 PM on Sat Oct 12 2013
Everyone does a great job but Ellie Mcbride, I voted for Stana Katic but I might change it to Helen Slater soon.
said at 8:39 PM on Mon Oct 7 2013
Stana may be the most "sexual", but Helen Slater is by far the most natural voice here, so she gets my vote. Stana and Olivia tie second for me, then Andrea Bowen (whom I think is underrated), and least of all Ellie McBride, who was total blandness.

My favorite Juliet, and also my favorite Talia! Mrs. Hussey sure is a real talent :)
said at 7:57 PM on Wed Nov 21 2012
I'm gonna go with Stana Katic. Olivia Hussay and Helen Slater were great too.

said at 1:53 AM on Wed May 30 2012
What the? 2 votes for Olivia just disappeared when changed mine to Andrea. The votes weren't changed as the results for the other choices are the same.
said at 10:06 PM on Mon May 28 2012
Gonna go with Stana Katic, thoguh Helen Slater and Olivia Hussey were also good as Talia.
said at 12:11 PM on Wed Jun 6 2012
@Anicomicgeek Ellie McBride was okay, but Stana Katic is still better, so I'm gonna stick with her.
said at 5:53 PM on Mon May 28 2012
I know Talia has a voice in DC Universe Online, however I was unlucky to find clips of her from the game. If anyone is able to or knows a good video, please let me know. =D
said at 8:02 PM on Mon May 28 2012
@AMT She also appears in Batman Dark Tomorrow as well. If anyone has found her voice actress for the game I mentioned, please insert it.
