->''"No matter what game I play or anime I watch, Wendee Lee will '''always''' be there, taking the job away from another starving voice actor."''
-->--'''Lee, ''[[Website/ThatGuyWithTheGlasses Still Gaming]]'' review of ''[[VideoGame/SoulSeries Soul Calibur IV]]'''''

Wendee Lee (born February 20, 1960 in Los Angeles, CA) is a prolific American voice actress. While she has done voice work for many video games, as well as several episodes in the ''Franchise/PowerRangers'' franchise (most notably the second voice of Alpha 6), she is particularly prolific in the dubbing of anime, where she has more credits than any other English-speaking actor, with about 300 credits, and has been an active voice actress since 1985.

Lee is also experienced in ADR directing. Earlier director credits include ''Manga/OutlawStar'' and ''Manga/LoveHina''. She, alongside Creator/KirkThornton also directed the ADR process for ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'' up until episode 168.

Most fans consider her the Western equivalent of Music/MegumiHayashibara and the anime equivalent of Creator/TressMacNeille due to the sheer length of her résumé and [[ManOfAThousandVoices many voice types]], which includes many famous roles such as [[Anime/CowboyBebop Faye Valentine]], [[Manga/MagicKnightRayearth Umi Ryuuzaki]], and LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya.

It is safe to say that Creator/KiraBuckland could be considered her Spiritual Successor in terms of the [[GenkiGirl energetic girl]] typecast. Creator/CarrieKeranen also counts as her other SpiritualSuccessor in terms of similar vocal range. Her Texan counterparts (for both Houston and Dallas) are Creator/JessicaCalvello (in terms of the GenkiGirl typecast, and also was formerly her New York equivalent) and Creator/LuciChristian (in terms of playing different types of characters with different vocal ranges), and her Vancouver counterpart is Creator/VenusTerzo.

!!Tropes applying to Wendee Lee:
* GottaCatchThemAll: In several interviews, Wendee has mentioned how she likes to collect as much [[TheMerch merchandise]] related to shows she has worked on as she can.
* OlderThanSheLooks: She's in her 50's, and has been active in voice acting for well over two decades (in other words, longer than most anime fans have been alive), but you would not know it hearing or seeing her. Yes, she's actually ''older'' than the go-to lady in Japan for 'motherly' roles like Creator/KikukoInoue (not that Wendee can't do such roles, it's just not often enough).
* RelationshipVoiceActor: She has worked with Creator/SteveBlum [[Anime/CowboyBebop on]] [[Manga/GreatTeacherOnizuka several]] [[WesternAnimation/MegasXLR series]], and she seems to be good friends with him.
** Also with Creator/CrispinFreeman, Creator/JohnnyYongBosch, Creator/StephanieSheh, Creator/MichelleRuff, Creator/SamRiegel among others.
* WomanOfAThousandVoices: She has averted being a {{Pigeonholed Voice Act|or}}ress and even has the range to voice [[LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya teenage]] [[LightNovel/BludgeoningAngelDokurochan characters]], including [[Manga/RurouniKenshin shonen boys]].
** Here is a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=05F7k40hDbc demonstration clip of her vocal range]] during the Anime Fans Give Back to Japan charity after the 2011 Japan earthquake (and TalkingToHerself there).
