Happy Birthday Colleen O Shaughnessey!!!

I really enjoyed listening to her work as Sora Takenouchi, Jazz Fenton, Ino Yamanaka, and Konohamaru, especially the former as this was one of her first roles I became familiar with when I first watched Digimon as a Kid.

Anyways Happy Birthday Colleen and good luck getting more voice work.

Happy Birthday, Colleen O'Shaughnessey/Villard! Good lord am I unable to get enough of her voice. Her performances as Sora Takenouchi and Konohamaru Sarutobi strike me as all sorts of memorable. My other favorite roles from O'Shaughnessey include Jazz Fenton, Charmy Bee, Miles "Tails" Prower, Wasp/Janet Pym, Genis Sage, and Nel Tu/Nelliel Tu Odelschwanck.

Happy Birthday Colleen.

I admire her roles as Sora (Digimon), Jazz (Danny Phantom), Ino and Konohamaru (Naruto), Nel Tu/Nelliel Tu (Bleach), and among many others she voiced throughout her career.

Hope to see her continuing gaining more voice roles in the future, especially as Wasp in future iterations (Avengers EMH).

Need a voice for a young girl with plenty of spunk then you call Colleen. There is without a doubt my all-time favourite role being Wasp. I honestly don't feel any other VA that has voiced Wasp over the years has brought so much to the role as much as Colleen did, then again a huge factor was also due to the writing. Most fans agree that the EMH Wasp surpasses any of her comic book incarnations and I have to agree with that. I'm glad that she is at least one of the few VA's from EMH to still be voicing her character since Jeph Loeb took over...granted this is on the video games side of things but still better than not having her in the role period.

I also loved her performances as Sora, Jazz Fenton, Pokota and Tails.

I really enjoyed Colleen in the Smile Precure/Glitter Force dub, she was a great fit for Akane Hino (Kelsey)/Cure (Glitter) Sunny. If they ever did a uncut, more faithful dub for the series, she'd be even better but as is she did a great job all things considered. Of course this character fits in her usual type of spunkiness that she tends to voice.

I also really loved how her performance in Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin as Artesia Som Deikun/Sayla Mass. I was amazed just how high pitched she could go as a young Artesia, she managed to sound convincing as a child to me. Her Sayla though was very fitting. I'd like to see how she'd voice her once the events of 0079 transpire. Seriously Sunrise still waiting for a re-make of the original Gundam series. It'd be cool to hear the cast of Origin and Unicorn get the chance to voice in a re-make.

And of course it's great that she's reprising as Sora for Digimon Adventure Tri. Despite my grievances with the original dub script, I always did like Colleen in the role of Sora. That was perfect casting.

Happy Birthday Colleen O'Shaughnessy/Villard!

I don't know why, but I feel like Colleen is starting to disappear from Western Animation.

@Troodon2 Why would she? That's where all the money is.
said at 2:53 PM on Tue Sep 20 2016
@huzaifa_ahmed I think it has less to do with money, actually.
said at 4:57 PM on Tue Sep 20 2016
@Troodon2 What do you think it has to do with?
said at 8:14 PM on Thu Sep 22 2016
@huzaifa_ahmed Perhaps it's based in her position, I know she's LA but perhaps where ever she's currently opperating may side closer to the ADR department; or perhaps most casting directors in Western Animation may not even consider casting her.
said at 8:29 PM on Fri Sep 23 2016
@Troodon2 Plus with western animation the pay isnt based upon how long you record as opposed to dubbed anime which is based upon timed sessions. Thats why in cartoons (western animation) you have one voice actor doing like up to 20 or so roles for just one show, so im guessing the people dont want to waste money paying somebody else to do a role when that person doing the 20 or so roles is there. If that made sense man lol.

Sonic Boom hasn't hit the UK yet but she's already awesome as Tails. She's not bad as Charmy either.

Happy birthday, Colleen(Wasp, Nelliel and Loly).

Out of all the people to replace Kate Higgins as Tails, I'm glad they at least went with her. I always thought her Charmy voice sounded like it could fit Tails very well, and she's doing a spot on impression from what I've heard so far.
said at 9:56 PM on Fri Sep 26 2014
@chaosincarnate She actually kinda sounds ike Kath Soucie when doing it. I think she may have been taking notes from her when they worked together on certain shows.
