Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Lori with sound clips and images.
Franchise: Transformers

Lori is one of the primary human characters from Transformers Cybertron. She is a friend of Coby and Bud, but fits the "tsundere" archetype and varies between grouchy and sweet. Her normal voice actress is Sarah Edmondson. When Edmondson is unavailable, Chiara Zanni substitutes.

Both actresses were good with this role, and the differences between their voices are subtle, so it's a tough call. I kind of like Chiara Zanni a little better, though... don't know why...

I'm going with Sarah. The other girl sounds like shes using old InterSound Animation equiptment stock from their long dead 80s and 90s Harmony Gold and ZIV Studios in 2005 which is way past the equiptments prime.

I loved Lori, it was cool to see a tsundere in Transformers.

Of the two I prefer Sarah Edmondson as she voiced Lori way longer and had a more unique sounding voice.

Chaira Zanni was a solid fill in voice but I found her voice too recognizable that as a fill-in voice you know its not the same VA at all. It's a good voice but it sort of failed in its original objection....still if she had been her voice the entire time, I wouldn't have minded.

BONUS: I think Kira Buckland too could have worked as Lori.

I personally find Chiara's delivery to be really bad. It's like she's slightly drunk sounding or something. Sarah isn't special, but she's much better by comparison.

Edmonston has that 'never been heard before' quality. and it's works greatly to her advantage as perhaps the most bareable human female protagonist in the Unicron trilogy.

Zanni, despite her status as a stand-in, just comes across as too old to be her regular voice, though. Thankfully these periods are sparse, with her major takeover period ("Inferno") made after the fact.

Seriously? I didn't know Lori had two different voice actors. The voice never sounded like it changed ever.

Neither actress is particularly overwhelming, but Chiara sounds less flat and monotonous as Sarah so I'm going with her.
