"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, Still Gaming review of 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 Power Rangers 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 actor in English dubbed versions, with 223 credits as of April 2009. According to her interview on the Magic Knight Rayearth DVDs, she started doing voices at school, and got in trouble for it.

Lee is also experienced in ADR directing. Earlier director credits include Outlaw Star and Love Hina. Currently, both she and Kirk Thornton are directing the ADR process for Bleach.

Most fans consider her the Western equivalent of Megumi Hayashibara and the anime equivalent of Tress MacNeille due to the sheer length of her résumé and many voice types, which includes many famous roles such as Faye Valentine, Umi Ryuuzaki, and Haruhi Suzumiya.

It is safe to say that Kira Buckland may be her Spiritual Successor in terms of the energetic girl typecast. Her Texan counterparts (for both Houston and Dallas) are Jessica Calvello (in terms of the Genki Girl typecast) and Luci Christian (in terms of playing different types of characters with different vocal ranges), and her Vancouver counterpart is Venus Terzo.
