Creator: Kari Wahlgren

You need a girl that does both Anime and Western Animation? Try Hynden Walch. But if you need one that isn't sugary sweet (but can still do sugary sweet anyway if the role calls for it), then Kari Wahlgren is your girl.

She is a prolific voice actress with many roles (probably because she works in many mediums). She is best known in Western Animation as Saturn Girl in Legion Of Superheroes, Charmcaster in Ben 10, Emma Frost in Wolverine and the X-Men, Jane Foster and Amora the Enchantress in Avengers Earthsmightiest Heroes, and Nova in Super Robot Monkey Team Hyperforce Go!. In anime, she is best known as Haruko Haruhara in FLCL, Rip van Winkle in Hellsing, Saya Otonashi and Diva in Blood+, Relena from Digimon Data Squad, Anemone in Eureka Seven, Robin in Witch Hunter Robin (one of her favorite roles), and Kagami in Lucky Star. In Video Games, she is best known as Ashe in Final Fantasy XII and Lady in Devil May Cry 3 and 4.

Hailing from Kansas originally, she often jokes about how if she had a dollar for every time someone told her "you're not in Kansas anymore" that she'd never have to work again!

Has a Twitter account. She stopped doing non-union voice work in 2005, but still continues to do union voice work in anime occasionally.

And in case you were wondering, her first name rhymes with "Ferrari".

Her Texan counterparts are Luci Christian and Brittney Karbowski; and her Canadian counterpart would probably be Kelly Sheridan. Lauren Landa and Cristina Valenzuela are considered to be her successors, particularly in non-union dubs.
