Shelley Godwin

Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Shelley Godwin with sound clips and images.
Franchise: Xenosaga

Shelley Godwin is one of the various secondary protagonists from the Xenosaga series whom made her initial debut in the first game of the series. Shelley Godwin is Mary Godwin's older sister and is the navigator and helmsman of the Durandal whom alike her aforementioned sister is frequently seen with Jr. and Gaignun Kukai (especially the former). Shelley is a calm and highly intelligent woman whose matter of speech often sounds rather monotone but she is capable of emotion as she is a genuinely kind young woman. While Shelly is very much an opposite of her younger sister Mary as she is quiet and much more reserved (in more ways than one) she certainly has some things in common with her more energetic sister as they are both very loyal to Jr. and Gaignun and care for them very much.

Well folks since the previous Xenosaga VC was for Mary Godwin, its only natural that we do one for her older sister... SHELLEY GODWIN! Now lets go!

Dorothy Fahn- Pretty good, her voice for the role was alright and her performance did suit on how calm and monotone Shelley can be. In other words this is a somewhat interesting change of pace for Dorothy here.

Ali Hillis- I do think that Ali's work on the role makes her as one of the better examples of a "VA Replacement" in the series here. I like on how Ali's voice was calm and a bit lower and more soothing, I also liked on how Ali's performance reflects on how calm Shelley can be but it also sounds the most human of the three here.

Jessica Boone: Her voice for the role is a bit light compared to the others but it is not bad though as her performance was pretty good as it does give a calm and warm feel for the role pretty well.

Overall I am clearly going with Ali Hillis here but Dorothy Fahn and Jessica Boone were not bad though.

Tough call between Ali and Dorothy, though I'm slightly edging towards Ali.
