EDITOR'S OPINIONVanessa Marshall: Vanessa has experience with deep and strong voiced females so she was a great choice. Vanessa gave a good voice for Gwen's Diamondhead, having a lot of elements of Jim Ward's Diamondhead voice but keeps a feminine sound to it and Megan Smith's Gwen personality but still makes it her own performance. It's a good performance from a talented actress.
Ashley Johnson: Ashley doesn't get to do a lot of different voices so this should have been a great showcase of her range...should have. I don't want it to seem like I'm bashing Ashley as an actress as she is quite talented but she comes off as a woman trying to sound like a man, it's rather awkward in some lines and inconstant as well. I will say though, it's funny how sometimes Ashley sounds deeper as Diamondhead than Dee did as Diamondhead. So while Ashley had an admirable attempt I will sadly say she's the weakest.
Tara Strong: Tara got only one line as Diamondhead so sadly she is at a big disadvantage...but I think she worked against it and delivered a good voice. While focusing more on the feminine side more than Vanessa and thus isn't as deep, Tara still gives a nice deep and strong voice. I would love to hear more from her and show off more of Gwen's personality.
So in the end, I felt each actress did a good job in their own way but I have to give it to Vanessa. I will say that despite her limited material Tara is second for me and that puts Ashley at third.
