Mary Elizabeth [=McGlynn=] (born October 16, 1966) is an American voice actress, ADR director, writer, and singer best known for her extensive English-language dubbing of various anime, and her collaboration with songwriter Music/AkiraYamaoka and lyricist Joe Romersa singing in multiple games from the ''Franchise/SilentHill'' series and ''VideoGame/ShadowsOfTheDamned'', as well as ''Dance Dance Revolution EXTREME'' (she also provided vocals for some music tracks in the movie adaptation of ''Film/SilentHill'' and the ending theme for ''Film/SilentHillRevelation3D''). She has also had several television and movie roles, and has been married to fellow voice actor Creator/DaranNorris since 1988. Mary was a counselor at the Interlochen Arts Camp in Intelochen, Michigan.

[=McGlynn=] has also been credited as Melissa Williamson, Anna Top, Lucy Todd, Charlotte Bell, Abbie Normal and Sherry Peppars. No, she isn't running from the Mob; a peculiarity of many anime voice actors from her generation is that most have been credited by more names than they've owned cars(although "Melissa" is taken from her twin sister). She has been the English counterpart of Atsuko Tanaka four times (Jagura in ''Manga/WolfsRain'', Rosso the Crimson in ''VideoGame/DirgeOfCerberus: VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'', Motoko Kusanagi in ''Anime/GhostInTheShellStandAloneComplex'', and Nina Williams in ''Film/TekkenBloodVengeance'' ). She was a Guest of Honor at Anime Expo 2007, Long Beach, and won the 2007 American Anime Award for Best Female Voice Actress for her role as Major Motoko Kusanagi in ''Stand Alone Complex''.
