Jill Valentine

Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Jill Valentine with sound clips and images.
Franchise: Resident Evil

Jill Valentine is the original Heroine of the Resident Evil series whom has been around since the first game in the series. Jill was formally a member of S.T.A.R.S until the Arklay Mountains Mansion Incident in which she fought off various Bioweapons made by Umbrella with the likes of Barry Burton and Chris Redfield, in which afterwards she has worked with the latter to fight the monstrous B.O.W's in the world. Jill is known for other things in the Resident Evil series such as being the first of the main protagonists to reprise said role in one of the sequels (Resident Evil 3 to be precise) and has had more than one substantially different look over the course of the series.

Happy Halloween everyone! Today on the Resident Evil VC section we take a look at the original heroine of the series... JILL VALENTINE! Since this is a fairly large VC I will at least say this much on how I am not certain who I am going with here as most of these ladies did really well with this role here. The weakest performance here is the original VA of Jill but even then it wasn't too bad. (While she did try to have a rather emotional performance it can come off as a bit overdone in certain ways but to be fair there were worse performances in the original version of RE1.) Overall most of these ladies did rather well in playing Jill as the strong mannered woman that she is without making her too stoic here so I am not sure who I am going with here.

Catherine Disher and Patricia Ja Lee! Both are outstanding and are the true Jill Valentine.

Catherine was just great in 3 and it was a clever choice since her voice sounds similar to the one in the first game but Catherine just nailed it and acted A LOT better , so it sounded consistent and Jill got personality and emotions in the right place , something that not every RE character has in the older games.

And Patricia is just a Fair reemplacement and good for Jill's former modern appearence (Julia Voth Face was the prettiest). She is a good actress and gives Jill a more serious tone which fits Jill nowadays since she has more experience and knows what she is doing.

The others are just average (Kari, Heidi , Tara) , Horrible (Inezth or Una or whatever it was) or simply unfitting for a character like Jill (Michelle)

I actually haven't played any of the games that have Jill in them yet. But I guess I'll give my thoughts anyway.

Una Kavanagh - Aside from the bad acting, she just sounds whiny as heck, which is not how I'd imagine an elite soldier woman to sound.

Heidi Anderson - When compared to Kavanagh she's more competent and at least doesn't make her sound like a coward, but her acting is still pretty monotone. It gets the job done, at least.

Catherine Disher - Her acting is a little better than both Una and Heidi, but her voice is just slightly unfitting, IMO. This is still the first voice I would consider good, though.

Patricia Ja Lee - My personal favorite. It's a fitting, fairly distinct voice and she's not as bland as some of the others.

Tara Platt - Not bad. Her voice isn't quite what I imagine, but at least her acting isn't flat.

Kari Wahlgren - Kari usually sounds very distinct in most things she does, but in this role she actually sounds extremely forgettable. The acting isn't bad, but nothing about this clip is interesting to me.

Michelle Ruff - Her voice is a little too light for the character.

KAVANAUGH - The original and always will be, but while I applaud her for putting emotion into her voice (almost too much), her voice was very grating to listen to. She sounded like she needed a cough drop.

ANDERSON - Nothing terribly memorable, but she gets the job done.

DISHER - Essentially an imitation of Kavanaugh with improved acting and delivery. Not bad.

LEE - Sounded very young, interesting, had great acting, and she seemed to really fit the character best for me.

PLATT - Surprisingly close to Lee, but a tad matured, and very strong delivery.

WAHLGREN - Nothing memorable, but she got the job done. Her voice did suit the character very well.

RUFF - Again, not bad, but also nothing memorable. She sounds a tad aged for the character, and her acting's pretty stale, but otherwise it gets the job done.

I really don't have a clear favorite; they're all actually pretty good. Though if I had to choose, it would be between Catherine Disher, Patricia Ja Lee, and Michelle Ruff.

I've been meaning to ask though, just what is that thing on Jill's chest in MvC3?

@pokemastanumba1 It's a device that injects P30 into her body (that's a fictional performance enhancer, think steroids). Wesker used it in RE5 to make Jill into a supersoldier.

@pokemastanumba1 It's an excuse to look at her chest

@Music Meister Pretty much, yeah.

@Music Meister LOL! I guess Capcom has to resort to exploiting their video game characters as sex objects in order to keep them from losing profits (why do you think that in U/MvC3, every male has six-pack abs, and every female has breasts the size of basketballs?)

@pokemastanumba1 Unfortunately, this is far from a Capcom-exclusive phenomenon. :/ Case in point: the more recent Soulcaliburs (IV especially comes to mind) and the entire Dead or Alive series.

@NCZ Are you a fan or interested in the DOA Series?

@Heartfilia Mage 721 Not really, but I'm somewhat familiar with them (used to be a big fighting game fan, I watched the movie, and I added all the games to the site). That said, my statement was somewhat facetious and mainly referring to the Xtreme Beach Volleyball subseries. I've heard they're getting better about the shameless fanservice as of 5 and Dimensions.

@NCZ DOA5 Ultimate looks awesome. If you have time maybe you can check it out.

I like Catherine because she sounded determined and strong willed (Not that the others didnt) and her voice sounds quite unqiue from the others.

Patricia Ja Lee is my favorite. With that said, in almost every new game Jill appears in, she's voiced by someone else. I just wish Capcom would be more consistent with her voice.

This is a great voice compare, the 2 best performances here are, Catherine Disher and Patricia Ja Lee! I think Catherine was great as Jill in RE: 3 as her voice was dramatic, which defined a determined Jill. Then there's Patricia Ja Lee, who I believe is the voice of Jill in RE: 5, whose voice work is relaxed yet reflects Jill's mentality (relief) as she is finally reunited with Chris. It's ashame, Capcom replaced her, I think she should've continued as Jill in RE: Revelations! That's all I can say about this voice compare, as both are great as the voice of Jill (in her respective mind states)
