1.) Shenhua/Chinglish (Black Lagoon)
2.) Sawyer The Cleaner (Black Lagoon)
3.) Gohan (Kid) (Dragon Ball Z)
4.) Lucrezia Noin (Gundam Wing)
5.) Kazuko Yoshiyama (The Girl Who Leapt Through Time)

7.) Oxnard (Hamtaro)
8.) Sota Higurashi (InuYasha)
9.) Sachiko Yagami (Death Note)

It was good to have Saffron voice some characters in the World Trigger dub this past year.

I'm surprised that this lady here, who voiced Gohan, also voiced Shenhua in Black Lagoon. She was soooo funny in that role.

@8000 Saiyans It's also amazing that she was Black Widow and Ma Gnucci in the Punisher game.

I thought Mary McGlynn always voiced Kurenai from Naruto. Was Henderson just voicing Kurenai for a few of the episodes?
said at 7:22 PM on Mon Jul 10 2017
@Mr. Kite just episode 3 that aired for tv brodcast until mcglynn replaced her and redubbed her for the dvd release.

Henderson moved to US because she was getting married and her husband was american and thefore completed whatever remaining va work she can and was replaced in her roles of Gohan and Sota.

she then had a brief stint in LA where she voice acted in Zatch Bell, Kurenai in Naruto and voiced BW in the Punisher game.

the pay wasnt as great as good ol canada and has since moved back but i would have liked to see what more she could do with kurenai although mcglynn is awesome in the role and the best replacement u can ask for.

theres also fact that kurenai`s student kiba is voiced by kyle hebert, so kid gohan (ocean) was mentoring adult gohan(funi) that would have been funny to see.

Ill let u in on a little more gohan trivia she voiced sachiko in death note while brad swaile voiced light, brad played adult gohan in ocean dbz so gohan was playing gohan`s mom

Oh, cool. Thank you for the information.

I like the way she talks about gohan in interviews and such, she really respects the character like hebert does when he talks about it.

If shes seen dbs, I want to here her current opinion of Gohan given the great character development hes been given recently which im sure she will be surprised by

Happy Birthday, Saffron Henderson! As a kid, I grew up on her Naomi Fluegel given I was more or less into Zoids at the time. My other favorite Saffron performances include Black Widow/Natalia Romanov, Gohan, Shenhua, Sawyer the Cleaner, Bloodberry, Teddie Safari, Callisto, Eri, Sota Higurashi, and Sherrie. Honestly her rendition of Sakura Kasugano sounds fairly decent, too, though I've a feeling she'd be way better under more polished direction and material.

Happy Birthday Saffron Henderson!

Amazing VA for both young boys and mature sounding ladies.

My favourite role of hers would have to be Shenhua a.k.a "Chinglish" in Black Lagoon, that over the top exaggerated Taiwanese accent was hilarious and fits Shenhua too a tee.

I also have a major soft spot for her performance as the young Son Gohan (and to a lesser extent Goku too), I think she is easily the best English voice Gohan has ever heard.

I also loved her performances as Lucrezia Noin, Kazuko Yoshiyama, Callisto, Sachiko Yagami, Oxnard, Teddie Safari, Sawyer The Cleaner, Sota Higurashi, Eri, Black Widow and her many roles in The Vision of Escaflowne.

I've heard that she's going to reprise as Gohan in Ocean's dub of DBZ Kai and I for one cannot wait to see her performance...if that ever does come out.

While Ocean's dub of DBZ Kai has been cancelled and it's a shame we'll never hear her do Gohan again, it's still good to know that she's active in the industry.

Good to see she was in The Deep not too long ago.

I hope she gets more roles soon, it'd be great to hear her in Gintama and/or World Trigger.

Happy Birthday Saffron Henderson!

Oh yeah I forgot to mention I liked her work in Trouble Chocolate.

She was good as Almond and Green Tea.

I recently watched the Galaxy Express 999 movies.

Saffron was very good as Tetsuro!

I wonder if she got cast in the role because both she and the Japanese VA Masako Nozawa both voice Young Gohan (DBZ) and Young Goku (Dragon Ball).

Pretty good range too.
said at 1:55 AM on Sun Jan 8 2012
@Jackson_H Interestingly Tetsuro was voiced by Barbara Goodson in the old 80s dub of Galaxy Express 999, who also voiced Goku in the Harmony Gold dub of Dragon Ball (sharing the two roles with Saffron Henderson and Masako Nozawa).
