Cristina Valenzuela (born July 11th, 1987), better known as Cristina Vee, is an American voice actress.

She caught the attention of dubbing studio Bang Zoom! Entertainment from a voice acting panel at Anime Expo 2004, an anime convention in Southern California. Since then, [[AscendedFangirl Bang Zoom! has continually invited Valenzuela to do voice work in anime, foreign films, and commercials.]] She has appeared at conventions throughout the United States where she sometimes sings live concerts (this apparently landed her [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eRfywEX2LDQ the live action role as ASOS Brigade leader]] in ''LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya'' season 2). Cristina's also one of the co-hosts of [[http://www.animeolympics.net/ Anime Olympics]] and season 2 of [[http://goanimetv.com/ Anime TV]]. At one point (the video has since been made private), she dubbed a ''VideoGame/BlazBlue'' [[Webcomic/{{Blazen}} webcomic]], voicing... who else? Noel. As you can guess, she's OneOfUs. She has been working as the voice director of ''VideoGame/{{Skullgirls}}''.

Despite her new start, she quickly racked up popularity amongst the new age of voice actors, making her a [[EnsembleDarkhorse fan favorite]] and most of her appearances in many projects will be met with much rejoicing. Yes, that's right, in a quick moment, she is starting to rival the popularities of accomplished ones, the likes of Creator/JohnnyYongBosch, Creator/MichelleRuff, Creator/StephanieSheh, Creator/YuriLowenthal, etc... (although still a long way to go until she reaches the memetic status of Creator/CrispinFreeman or Creator/SteveBlum). Since then she has been constantly improving her image professionally and shows no signs of slowing down her career.

Not to be confused with [[Manga/TheFiveStarStories Christine V]] (though if FSS ever gets another animated production, the casting choice for her in the English version is fairly obvious...).

Also has [[http://www.formspring.me/cristinavee Formspring]], [[http://www.youtube.com/user/ValliereVee YouTube]], and [[http://twitter.com/#!/cristinavee Twitter]] accounts. Mind you that since she's really busy on her voice acting work, she may not have time to reply to any submitted questions at her Formspring account. But she does reply to them, eventually.

Now has her own 'Vocaloid', in [[http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/interest/2015-06-11/voice-actress-cristina-vee-makes-game-debut-with-veecaloid-pop/.89138 Veecaloid Pop]]

!!Tropes associated with Cristina Valenzuela:

* CreatorsFavorite: Since the work was one of her motivations in becoming a voice actor in the first place, getting the role of Rei Hino/Sailor Mars in ''Manga/SailorMoon'' was one of her biggest gigs. Likewise, she's said in interviews to find playing [[WesternAnimation/MiraculousLadybug Marinette]] to be one of the most enjoyable projects she's done.
* DoingItForTheArt: She helped raise awareness of, assists in directing the dub for, stars in, and helped promote the American release of ''Manga/SkipBeat'' simply because she loves it so much.
* MagicalGirl: [[Manga/SailorMoon Rei Hino/Sailor Mars]], [[Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha Nanoha Takamachi]], [[Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica Homura Akemi]], and [[WesternAnimation/MiraculousLadybug Marinette Dupain-Cheng/Ladybug]].
* OneOfUs: For numerous anime, video games, Disney, ''Series/DoctorWho'', and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_7ZXnl45G8o comics too!]] (skip to 32:10) She found this very page, in this very site, and she ''loves'' it! She's a fan of ''WebVideo/MarbleHornets''. [[http://twitter.com/#!/CristinaVee/status/165862985733128192/photo/1/large Here she is with Joseph and Tim!]] She plays ''VideoGame/LeagueOfLegends'', voices one of the characters there, and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3fFflwLYPKQ she even was a host at their IPL4 tournament]]. She knew the existence of the ''WebAnimation/MadokaAbridged'' and even lent some random voices for Homura there, with the effect of advertising "I'm Cristina Vee, and I'm voicing Homura in the actual Madoka dub!" She did a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=epn-fg48i9M dub]] of a ''Webcomic/{{Blazen}}'' fancomic starring Noel from ''VideoGame/BlazBlue''. Later on she was willing to do an introduction for an episode of WebAnimation/HelpMeDoctorHazama.
* PigeonholedVoiceActor:
** At the start of her voice acting career, she is often into the "[[TheCutie sweet girl]]" (which is reflected with her earlier role as [[Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha Nanoha]]). Later in her career, she is often typecasted into BrokenBird characters instead such as [[Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica Homura]], [[VideoGame/LeagueOfLegends Riven]], [[LightNovel/FateZero Sakura]], [[VideoGame/TalesOfBerseria Velvet]], and [[VideoGame/BlazBlue Noel]]. Though that doesn't mean she no longer gets "sweet girl" roles again, sometimes both mix.
* PlayingAgainstType: [[invoked]]
** [[VideoGame/AbsoluteDespairGirls Monaca]] who comes off as the typical NiceGirl until she starts throwing childish and whiny tantrums and eventually reveals [[spoiler: that she's the true BigBad and a FauxAffablyEvil Sociopath to boot]]. Christina gets extra kudos for pulling off Monaca's frightening tantrums and personality a little ''too'' well.
** In ''Manga/SevenDeadlySins'', she plays a talking boy pig named Hawk.
** Her casting as [[Manga/HunterXHunter Killua]] has been met with this reaction, since it's the first notable instance of her being cast as a human boy.
** [[VideoGame/TalesOfBerseria Velvet Crowe]]. While Vee is no stranger on BrokenBird characters, Velvet would be the first where her character is a full-blown AntiHero, with elements of a ByronicHero.
* PromotedFangirl:
** She's a huge ''Manga/SailorMoon'' fan, and fandubbed the opening theme and Moon Revenge. [[PromotedFangirl And now she gets to be Sailor Mars in the new Viz dub of Sailor Moon]]. Nice. She also stated at Katsucon 2015 that she is especially looking forward to dub the ''Sailor Moon R'' movie (which has Moon Revenge).
** Worked with Pied Piper to license, [[Website/{{Kickstarter}} Kickstart]], and dub the anime adaptation of ''Manga/SkipBeat'', a show she's a massive fan of.
* ShrinkingViolet: As Mio and Noel.
* TheCastShowoff:
** In the Creator/VizMedia dub of the 54th episode of ''Manga/SailorMoon R'', Cristina sings in-character as Rei for the song "Eternal Melody". She also translated the lyrics.
** She also got to sing the song "Dance Through the Danger" for ''[[VideoGame/{{Shantae}} Shantae: Half-Genie Hero]]''.
* {{Tsundere}}: As [[LightNovel/TheFamiliarOfZero Louise]], [[Manga/{{Bleach}} Riruka Dokuragamine]], and [[Manga/SailorMoon Rei Hino (aka Sailor Mars)]].
* WomanOfAThousandVoices: She can go from voicing little girls, to voicing sweet high pitched teens, to voicing lower pitched badasses, and [[Manga/HunterXHunter even a boy]].
