Voice Compare » Sailor Moon » Queen Beryl

Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Queen Beryl with sound clips and images.
Queen Beryl is the main villain in the first season of Sailor Moon. She had captured and enslaved the kingdom of the Moon before the show began. She enlists soldiers to capture energy for the Negaverse (or her ruler in the Japanese version). She is wicked, and occasionally comical.

She was voiced by Naz Edwards for all of the First seasons' run and in a recap near the beginning of the Second, however series regular, Jill Frappier filled in for her in a flashback in Episode 82: "Follow the Leader".

Naz Edwards sounded so epic in this role, making her sound quite wicked and colorful, while not going over the top. She was definitely a highlight of the dubbing of those early episodes. I'm surprised Jill Frappier attempted to give the role her own spin for her lines instead of voice matching Naz. It worked for what it was worth, though I'm not sure how it would've worked if she were the main voice of Beryl.

I'd say Cindy Robinson, I'll admit she does the role perfectly & sound pretty close to Keiko Han's Queen Beryl.

Arrgh, so hard to choose between Naz and Cindy. Both have subtle but striking similarities and differences to their performances. Overall I'm sticking with Nax as my favorite based on memorability and presence, but damn, Cindy comes very, very close.

Well that was pretty obvious on who I want to vote from my previous comment
Cindy sounds more sympathetic, she is after all broken by jealousy from the manga origin yet she still sound evil but not as obvious as Naz
Naz sounds like Maleficent and is a little too evil for me
Jill sounds a bit like Cruella DeVille

Now that Cindy is actually an option, I'm torn between her and Naz. While having a similar voice, Cindy is much more reserved and sinister. However, I'm always up for hammy villains, and Naz more than accomplishes that; overall, both are very fun to listen to, in their own ways.

And Jill's not bad or anything; she just didn't have as much to work with, so she doesn't really leave as much of an impression.

I still enjoy listening to Naz chew the scenery, but I think Cindy Robinson captures the mysterious and subtle wickedness of the character a bit more. She's even a little sympathetic and sexy at times.

I think Nazz Edwards does better being more evil. Just like the comment below, it does sound like she has more power.

Nazz Edwards seems to have more power, more gusto, to her voice. I think she made the better Queen Beryl.

Nazz Edwards was just awesome in the role. She really gets into the character when necessary.

Cindy Robinson is also good in the role. She somewhat reminds me of Dalbello's Nehelenia at times.

Jill sadly pales to the other two. She was better as Luna (character age aside).

Both annoys me but I prefer Jill a bit more

But I will wait until Cindy appears

Nazz Edwards is probably THE bar setter for Sailor Moon dub voices, so Cindy Robinson has a lot to live up to. That said, I have faith.

Meh, both were pretty bad.

@MicroPhoneBass I wouldn't call Nazz Edwards's rendition bad at all. It's actually the best voice for Queen Beryl so far. Both Keiko Han (her original voice) and Jill Frappier play the role way too stereotypical witchy. With Nazz, I actually get the sense that this is an evil woman in power. Granted, the voice clips here really could have chose better examples of her work as the character.

I didn't know Beryl had a different voice actress? When was this? Anyways, Ms. Edwards is Queen Beryl. She made that role hers. Can definitely hear Edwards portrayal in the second half of the clip her jealousy towards Sailor Moon.

@akiha Jill Frappier briefly filled in for a flashback in Episode 82. Naz Edwards voiced the character in all other appearances.

Naz was perfect as her voice. She sounded evil in the right way without being overboard. I actually can't recall Jill voicing Beryl at all. What episode was it? She sounds far too sweet to me. Naz had a lot of power with her voice
said at 4:12 PM on Thu Jul 10 2014
@dreamer "Follow The Leader", the last episode of the R season. We see the fight with Beryl in flashback and in the dub, her voice is done by Jill.

Naz Edward's even better than Beryl's Japanese voice. Jill Frapier, by contrast, sounds like a HUGE step down. Thank goodness she was just for one episode.

@Galactic_Cyrus I agree. If there's one voice in the English dub of Sailor Moon that most definitely surpassed the Japanese, it's Beryl. I do like Keiko Han's voice a lot, but it got a tad ackward at times, and it's obvious that her register was being physically lowered (she was much better as Luna). Naz' voice was very enertaining, and fun to listen to. She really sunk her teeth into the role. Her performance was nearly flawless.

To be totally honest, I love them both a lot, but I liked that Jill made her voice a little bit higher. It gave her a bit of a witch-like sound that I imagine when seeing pictures of Beryl without any sound.
said at 6:30 PM on Mon Sep 12 2011
I just realized it, but Naz kinda looks like Beryl a little! lol
said at 11:45 AM on Fri May 11 2012
@PurpleWarrior13 lol! I prefer Naz better. I don't think the lady voicing Luna was right to do Luna it sounds strange to me
