I love Stana's voice for Talia, I always have. She just does a perfect job with all of it. Helen is pretty good too.

Stana Katic blows all the rest out of the water. She's the only one who gets the accent down perfectly - Slater sounds too Russian, Hussey and especially Bowen sound too British (although given who Hussey was ACTUALLY playing there, it works), and McBride and Baccarin don't even bother with an accent at all (Baccarin is wooden as Hell on top of that).

None of them are perfect in my opinion.

Honestly? I don't think we've had a definitive Talia yet.

Slater has a nice voice, teensy bit of an accent to go with it, but lacks the intelligence Talia would have.

Hussey I think comes closest of all personality wise but I think a different accent would work better. Same with Bowen.

Katic has a good accent, but the delivery is too flat for my liking.

McBride just feels kind of generic villain to me. Interesting take that could work for another villain, but not for Talia.

Barracin has decent acting skills in the role, but doesn't really feel like a fit for Talia.

If I had my choice and she sounded younger, my choice would be probably be Shohreh Aghdashloo.

A weird idea I had once when thinking of a voice for Rhas Al Ghul was "a male Shohreh Aghdashloo would be great," which got me thinking.

If there was ever a series were Talia and Rhas were basically the same character where Talia was the one planning genocide on humanity, Aghdashloo, with both her sympathetic performances and natural intellectual tone would be a perfect balance for a character like Rhas.

Tough call between Helen slater or Stana Katic

Side note: Stephanie young, Shelley Calene-Black, or Lisa Ann belay would make good choices for Talia

Probably one of most Defining Cases of 'On Again, Off Again' Love Interest in Comics.

Here Are My Top 5 Talia Al Ghul Voices:

5. Morena Baccarin
4. Ellie McBride
3. Helen Slater/ Andrea Bowen
2. Olivia Hussey
1. Stana Katic

Future VA Suggestions:

I think Lara Gilchrist would be a great fit for Talia, using a Accented version of her Emma Frost voice.

I also believe Corinne Kempa would be wonderful as Talia, with her exotic French accent.

I also recommend Ash Sroka, Eleanor Howell, Stephanie Young and Kim Mai Guest.

Anyone else notice that Talia has been voiced by both Kate Beckett and Inara Serra, both love interests to Nathan Fillion characters.

I like Helen and Olivia the most, with Stana very close behind. Both Andrea and Ellie were decent, but Morena was very boring.

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?

@Music Meister The one major exception being The Brave And The Bold.

She wouldn't have the same accent if she was raised somewhere different than her father was.

Waht happened with Morena Baccarin as Talia? She was good as Talia and Cheetah, but not so muvh as Talia. Sticking with Katic.

@Anicomicgeek She was probably misdirected by the ADR Team.

She was a lot better in Bad Blood.

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
said at 2:35 AM on Fri May 23 2014
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.
said at 4:52 PM on Tue Jan 21 2014
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.)

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)

I'd go with Stana Katic because of the accent that Talia Al Ghul and Ra's should possess LOL

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.

@Anicomicgeek Ellie McBride was okay, but Stana Katic is still better, so I'm gonna stick with her.

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

@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.
