Describe Cherami Leigh here and get your ass moving now, damn you.

Cherami Leigh (pronounced SHER-ah-mi LEE) Kuehn (born July 19, 1988) is an American actress and voice actress. You may or may not recognize her as one of the Radio Disney voices during promotions and commercials, which she has been working as for over ten years.

For anime voice-acting, she primarily worked for Funimation, and is noted for her cutesy voices that can become rather deep and scary if necessary; her most well-known roles are probably Lucy Heartfilia of Fairy Tail and Patti of Soul Eater, yet for a long time, she appeared in basically every Funimation show, like the other voice actors there. For that matter, her voice range is similar to Yukari Tamura's. Her first recurring anime role was Sae from Peach Girl.

She currently works in L.A. where she has done the English voice for Asuna Yuuki in Sword Art Online and Sailor Venus in Sailor Moon. The move has also opened more opportunities for her live-action work too. She appeared on Friday Night Lights as Ginnie Warwick, and appeared multiple times on Walker, Texas Ranger. She also played Sarah on the short-lived The Deep End.

Tropes associated with Cherami Leigh:

  • Pigeonholed Voice Actor: For Badass Adorable characters and Plucky Girls as well, although the first half of 2017 was pretty much her tour-de-force for proving she had range beyond that, since she went from Makoto Niijima (who can be a little "cute and plucky", but is a lot more down to earth and also, when the chips are down, purely badass than previous roles) to Mae (still a bit cute, but almost more a Buffy-like Cloud Cuckoolander than anything) to A2 (welp).
  • Star-Making Role: She'd been doing well previously, but the 1-2-3 combo of A2, Makoto and Mae all within the span of two months in 2017 raised her profile tremendously and showed off her talent.
  • Tsundere: While not her primary trope, she can pull these kinds of roles relatively well. Across from Ayano, Shana (Type A), there is also Asuna (Type B).
