Billed as a "Superstar Voice Actress" on the Anime News Network, Grey DeLisle (born Erin Grey Van Oosbree, August 24, 1973) currently plays a leading role in at least six current animated series.

She is usually typecast as the evil teenage girl (Vicky, Sally Avril), the sweet kid (Lizzie, Emily Elizabeth, Wubbzy), villainessess (Azula, Jacqueline Natla, Femme Fatale) and heroines and good guys (Kimiko Tohomiko, Daphne Blake, Kitty Katswell). She's also been heard as Betsy from Curious George, a violin in "Peter Pan", Lady Redundant Woman from WordGirl, Ginger from The Tom and Jerry Show (2014), Black Canary from Batman: The Brave and the Bold, Portia Gibbons from The Mighty B!, Flicker from Handy Manny, Ms. Marvel and Amora the Enchantress from The Super Hero Squad Show, Brianna Buttowski from Kick Buttowski, Dr. Rebecca Holiday from Generator Rex, Cotilla of Zevo-3, the Dark Jedi Asajj Ventress and Padme in Star Wars: Clone Wars, and various characters in MAD.

Outside of cartoons, she's notable for Catwoman in Batman: Arkham City, Batman: Arkham Knight and Injustice: Gods Among Us and its sequel. Other roles include Escape from Monkey Island, Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn, Tomb Raider: Anniversary, and several Star Wars games. She reprises her role as Ventress in a bonus level in the Force Duel mode of the PSP version of the video game The Force Unleashed and appeared in two of Blizzard's main franchise games as the Dominion Ghost Nova in Starcraft II and as the female wizard in Diablo III (both of them also return in Heroes of the Storm, the latter re-christened as Li-Ming, and she reprised them).

Other notable roles include Therese and Jeanette (Tourette) Voerman in the White Wolf RPG PC game Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines, Frida Suarez in El Tigre: The Adventures of Manny Rivera, Sam Manson in Danny Phantom, Frankie and Goo in Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends, Riley Daring and Buzz Winters in The Replacements, and the High Priestess in the fifth season of Samurai Jack.

She can also play the autoharp and the clarinet, and has made several albums of country and folk music, using the money from her extensive voice-over work to fund her musical aspirations. On her 2005 album Iron Flowers, she covered "Bohemian Rhapsody", one of the most well-known songs of the band Queen.

Like Kath Soucie, she also has talent with accents as seen on Mighty Magiswords, Wolverine and the X-Men and The Mummy: The Animated Series (British), Batman: The Brave and the Bold, My Gym Partner's a Monkey, and G.I. Joe: Resolute (Hispanic), and Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends (Hungarian). She's even spoken a bit of Japanese and German as Yumi on Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi.

According to various interviews, her favorite characters that she has voiced are Azula, Mandy, and Vicky.

She eventually became a fan of Homestuck, joining her fellow Avatar castmember Dante Basco, and even recording small audio clips in the roles of Vriska and Rose. She also lent her voice to a certain grey, cross-eyed, muffin-loving pony in this little animation.

Following her marriage, she has begun being credited as Grey DeLisle-Griffin and Grey Griffin.

Has a Twitter account, a Facebook account and a Tumblr account.

Tropes:

  • Genki Girl: She plays these roles sometimes, with Goo being one of the biggest examples.
  • Large Ham: Self-admitted. She's expressed that characters like Azula and Mandy are a fun challenge to play because they're very unlike her real-life personality.
  • Motor Mouth: As Goo from Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends. Contrary to popular belief, her voice isn't sped up for the role, Grey does that herself.
  • Ms. Fanservice: She's lent her voice to various seductive female characters and has even narrated a couple of porn trailers.
  • Promoted Fangirl: When she got cast as an extra on Mad Men, she was apparently so excited that the people who cast her felt the need to remind her that she was just an extra.
  • Talking to Herself: She usually voices many characters in her works, who also usually interact with each other.
  • Vocal Evolution: Her standard boy voice has certainly improved from Chad in 2002, to Buzz in 2006.
  • Woman of a Thousand Voices:
    • Grey certainly has a large vocal range. She can go from a nice, sweet kid, to an evil villainess in quite a short amount of time.
    • Perhaps best demonstrated when she voiced Derpy in Epic Rage Time where she goes from being airheaded and ditzy to loud and furious within seconds.
    • In a live show with Rob Paulsen, she acts out some scenes from a theoretical Rule 34 version of The Wizard of Oz, flawlessly impersonating the munchkins, Dorothy and the Wicked Witch, respectively.
