Happy Birthday GK Bowes!!

Easily one of the most underrated voice actresses in anime, games and cartoons.

She does an amazing job as Kiyal Bachika, Mairu Orihara, Senna, etc...

Happy Late Birthday GK Bowes, enjoyed her performances as Kiyal Bachika, Mairu Orihara, Senna, among others. It's also awesome that she got a chance to be an audio book narrator The Story of Moana" novel this year.

Hope we get to see her do more voice over work in the years to come, and I wouldn't mind if she gets a role in the 2011 Hunter x Hunter series.

Happy Birthday, GK Bowes! I enjoy her performances as Felicia, Senna, Kiyal Bachika, Pirachu, Laura, Sun Shangxiang, and Asuka Kazama; I'd like to note that the latter grew on me.

More credibility should be given to her, she's not just a good voice actress, but also a pretty decent athlete and on camera actor to.

While I don't watch much anime, from whatever projects I watched with her init, she's got quite the range.

@WakaDub40 Actually, GK's not actually black, she's of Polynesian/Middle Eastern/Cuban/Native American descent. I remember reading an interview with her about that kind of thing.

Anyway from memory I think there's Keith Silverstein, John Eric Bentley, Amanda C. Miller, Beau Billingslea in the talent pool... Definitely agree would be cool to have more in the mix.

I thought GK was black too! But you can see she's a blend with prominent Polynesian. BUT VOICE ACTING NEEDS ALL THE COLOR IT CAN GET SO I AINT COMPLAINING. If were naming Anime I don't think anyone said Susan Dalian but just black VAs in general, Ozioma Akagha and Orlessa Atlass do video games. Erica Lutrell from SU too.

She might ultimately have black ancestry through her Cuban side. Cubans are Spanish,Native or Black Descent or mixture.

@Darkness Dragon

Yeah, I should've mentioned that. In the same interview I think she said something like that she probably does have black ancestry somehow down the line, but it's not as direct as some of her other roots so she doesn't consider it accurate to describe/identify herself as such.

I probably have Indian ancestry somewhere down the line but it's probably a small amount, indirectly from a number of generations ago, plus I've never been to India or even know anyone from there. So I understand where she comes from.

Ithose were my thoughts exactly,she has black within her blood but maybe she doesn't consider herself black. I myself Am Mexican,but I am mostly Spanish descent with very partial Native Ancestry.

Miss Bowes is criminally underrated and under used IMO. Glad she is getting more roles though.

Happy Birthday G.K. Bowes!!

It's great to see that she is gaining much more voice over work in games, anime, and original animation, after so many years of underused.

I enjoyed her roles as Mairu Orihara (Durarara), Kiyal Bachika (Gurren Lagann), among many others. Here's to hope she gains more work in the future.

Happy Birthday G.K Bowes!

How is she so underrated and underused? She has such an awesome spunky voice.

My favourite role of hers is Mairu Orihara in Durarara, while she wasn't the first VA to voice her in English, I'm glad that they did recast her. Before GK was cast as Mairu, I imagined Sarah Williams doing her, so it really surprised me just how much she sounds like Sarah in the role, and if anything she's even better than I could have imagined.

I also love her performances as Kiyal Bachika, Victoria, Asuka Kazama and Princess Charlotte, seriously she was a fantastic replacement for Rachel Lillis when she just suddenly left the role during the recording of the Berserk Golden Age Trilogy films.

I've watched the first Bleach movie the other way, and I thought for sure that Sena is Sarah Williams when it turned out to be GK. Comes to show you how similar their voices are.

Last month she had posted on Twitter, revealing that she was back for the new Berserk anime but it was being recorded at Bang Zoom!

I did like her Princess Charlotte just as much as Rachel Lillis's rendition. So I don't mind Bowes being back in the role, unless they intend to cast Bowes in a new role instead.

Also she does a very good job as Laura in Street Fighter V.

Happy Birthday GK Bowes!

I really hope on the console version of Tekken 7, there will be an option for non-English speaking characters to have English voices. I think it's time for that. Look at Super Street Fighter IV, Street Fighter x Tekken and Dead or Alive 5. I would love to hear some characters, especially Asuka, in English dub.
