Creator / Lisa Ortiz

Lisa Ortiz (born December 11, 1974) is an American theatre and voice actress, best known for her roles in English anime adaptations. She is perhaps best known for the roles of the high-elf Deedlit in Record of Lodoss War, Lina Inverse in Slayers, and Tony Tony Chopper in One Piece (4Kids dub). Her extensive résumé also includes the role of Amy Rose in Sonic X, and Serenity Wheeler in Yu-Gi-Oh! She has voiced Amy Rose in the Sonic the Hedgehog series of video games from Shadow the Hedgehog on (before being replaced by Cindy Robinson), as the successor to voice actress Jennifer Douillard, who voiced the character from Sonic Adventure to Sonic Advance 3. She even continues her voice roles in Pokémon with the added bonus of becoming the voice director for the show.

Living in New York City and frequently meeting people who speak other languages, helps in creating the dialect voices for which she is well recognized.

Do not confuse her with Edge's ex-wife, a civilian who happened to be named Lisa Ortiz. Also do not confuse her with a cast member of the series Hillside (called Fifteen in the US) named Lisa Ortiz.

Tropes associated with Lisa Ortiz

  • Cute, but Cacophonic: She is well known for her high-pitched characters like Amy despite having a voice that isn't naturally high.
  • Bilingual Bonus: Slightly Averted. She speaks Spanish fluently but there's little to no proof of her utilizing a Spanish accent in her characters.
  • Never Live It Down: In-universe. Anime VA, Tom Wayland, always likes to bring up her past relationship with Sean Schemmel which mind you, was in the early 90's.
  • Pigeonholed Voice Actor: She's ususally cast as a Magical Girl. But what's more reccurring are the tendencies of her Magical Girl Characters, who are often spunky, energetic, and/or dark.
