Describe Cherami Leigh here and [[Manga/SoulEater get your ass moving now, damn you]].

Cherami Leigh is an American actress and voice actress. You may or may not recognize her as one of the [[Creator/{{Disney}} 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 Creator/FUNimation, and is noted for her cutesy voices that can become rather deep and scary if necessary; her most well-known roles are probably Patti of ''Manga/SoulEater'' and Road of ''Manga/DGrayMan'', 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 Creator/YukariTamura's. Her first recurring anime role was Sae from ''Anime/PeachGirl''. She is currently voicing Lucy Heartfilia in ''Manga/FairyTail''.

Currently, she is working in L.A. as the English voice actress for Asuna Yuuki of ''LightNovel/SwordArtOnline'' alongside Creator/BrycePapenbrook, who plays Kazuto Kirigaya. She's also the new voice of Sailor Venus on ''Anime/SailorMoon''. The move has also opened more opportunities for her live-action work too. She appeared on ''Series/FridayNightLights'' as Ginnie Warwick, and appeared multiple times on ''Series/WalkerTexasRanger''. She also played Sarah on the short-lived ''Series/TheDeepEnd''.

Her Houston counterpart is Creator/{{Margaret McDonald}}. Her Canadian counterpart is Creator/TabithaStGermain.

!!Tropes associated with Cherami Leigh:
* CastingGag: Several characters she voiced happen to be blonde. The most notable examples are [[Manga/SoulEater Patti Thompson]], [[Manga/FairyTail Lucy Heartfilia]], [[VideoGame/MugenSouls Syrma]], and [[Manga/SailorMoon Minako Aino (aka Sailor Venus)]].
** She also voiced a couple of {{Tsundere}} FieryRedhead-type characters: Ayano Kannagi in ''LightNovel/KazeNoStigma'', and Shana in ''LightNovel/ShakuganNoShana'' (whose hair turns red ocassionally).
* HugeGuyTinyGirl: She's 5'0 and her husband is at least a head and shoulders worth taller than her.
* OlderThanTheyLook: She's 27 years old but still looks like she can pass off as a teenager.
* OneOfUs: She's an ''ComicBook/IronMan'' fan. She's also a ''Manga/SailorMoon'' fan.
** PromotedFangirl: She's playing Sailor Venus in the Creator/VizMedia dub of ''Manga/SailorMoon''.
* PigeonholedVoiceActor: For BadassAdorable characters. They are also {{Plucky Girl}}s as well.
* PlayingAgainstType: Iris Heart, the CPU Godess form of Plutia, from ''VideoGame/HyperdimensionNeptuniaVictory'', is a sadistic, dominatrix-type character who likes to see people in pain.
* StarMakingRole: For Texas based work, either Yoshika Miyafuji from ''Anime/StrikeWitches'', Patti Thompson from ''Manga/SoulEater'', Lucy Heartfilia from ''Manga/FairyTail'', or Shana in [=FUNimation's=] dub of ''LightNovel/ShakuganNoShana''. For California based work, Asuna from ''LightNovel/SwordArtOnline'' and Minako/Sailor Venus in the VizMedia re-dub of ''Manga/SailorMoon''.
* {{Tsundere}}: While not her primary trope, she can pull these kinds of roles relatively well. Across from [[LightNovel/KazeNoStigma Ayano]], [[LightNovel/ShakuganNoShana Shana]] (Type A), there is also [[LightNovel/SwordArtOnline Asuna]] (Type B).
