Describe Cherami Leigh here and get your ass moving now, damn you.

Cherami Leighnote  Kuehn (born July 19, 1988) is an American actress born in Texas. You may or may not recognize her as one of the Radio Disney voices during promotions and commercials, which she has been working as for over ten years.

For anime voice-acting, she primarily worked for Funimation, and is noted for her cutesy voices that can become rather deep and scary if necessary; her most well-known roles are probably Lucy Heartfilia of Fairy Tail and Patti of Soul Eater, yet for a long time, she appeared in basically every Funimation show, like the other voice actors there. Her first recurring anime role was Sae from Peach Girl.

She eventually moved to L.A. during the early 2010s where she has done the English voice for Asuna Yuuki in Sword Art Online and Sailor Venus in Sailor Moon. The move has also opened more opportunities for her live-action work too. She appeared on Friday Night Lights as Ginnie Warwick, and appeared multiple times on Walker, Texas Ranger. She also played Sarah on the short-lived The Deep End. She has also gained more prominence in video game voice acting, with the likes of Makoto Niijima from Persona 5, the female V from Cyberpunk 2077, A2 from NieR: Automata and her roles as Mae, Caeda, and Rhea in the Fire Emblem series being some of her most recognized roles.

While her vocal range is similar to Yukari Tamura's (whom she happens to share some roles with her), arguably her Japanese counterpart would be Kana Hanazawa in terms of popularity and status (and she too shares roles with her as listed below). She also happens to appear in a lot alongside Todd Haberkorn since they pretty much started working in Funimation around the same time and moved to LA around the same time as well (in addition to playing Natsu and Lucy). Even in their characters never interact, they still manage to appear in the same work many times (in fact, according to Behind the Voice Actors, Todd's her most collaborated actor).

She's married to actor Jon Christie and gave birth to a daughter, Cierli Ember, on October 8, 2023. Her personal website can be found here.

Nobody said there would be so many roles!
