Girl power!

Laura Dawn Bailey (born May 28, 1981) is an American actress and voice actress. Best known for her anime roles (at first, FUNimation titles but she has definitely moved on), she has also supplied voices in video games and worked as staff on several anime series. Some of her best known roles are Rayne in the BloodRayne video game series, Lust in Fullmetal Alchemist, Young Trunks in Dragon Ball Z, Maka Albarn in Soul Eater, Tohru Honda in Fruits Basket, Sana Kurata in Kodocha, Shin Nohara in the English dub of Crayon Shin-chan, and Rise Kujikawa in Persona 4. She is married to fellow voice actor Travis Willingham.

Has a website and Twitter account.

Her Japanese counterparts are Marina Inoue, Ami Koshimizu, and Mai Nakahara, as they are known to voice a lot of Action Girls and have similar vocal ranges with Laura Bailey. Her Texan counterparts are probably Brittney Karbowski and Alexis Tipton(which coincidentally enough, they used to work together in various anime titles before Laura moved to California). Lauren Landa and Alexis Tipton could be considered her Spiritual Successor in terms of the similar vocal ranges and typecasting (in both L.A. and FUNimation side of things), as Laura Bailey primarily does video game voice overs and some western animation nowadays, rarely getting any new anime roles in recent years, generally only reprising roles when she does anime. If she does get a new anime role, it's usually with Studiopolis.
