Donna Burke (Born December 12, 1964) is a voice actress and singer.

Born and raised in Australia, she's lived in Japan for the last twenty-ish years.

She's known primarily for providing English voices in Japanese contexts — as in, voicing the Gratuitous English in Japanese audio tracks and providing the singing voice for songs with English lyrics in anime and video games, as well as more mundane voice work. (Within Japan, her best-known "role" is probably the voice of the English language announcements on the Tokaido Shinkansen bullet train.) She also does more standard dubbing work, as well.

Also uses the alias Margaret Lucy (Margaret is her middle name) on occasion.

Tropes associated with Donna Burke:

  • Anime Theme Song: She's done quite a few opening and ending themes for both anime and video games.
  • Fake Nationality: She's Australian, but frequently does other accents, particularly Fake American and Fake Irish.
  • Surprisingly Good English: She provides a lot of it, being a native English speaker doing voice work in Japan. She's still following someone else's script, though, so sometimes grammar or phrasing can be strange even if pronunciation and intonation is spot on.
