Erin Fitzgerald (born September 21, 1972 in Victoria, Canada) is a voice actress in video games, anime, and cartoons. Her diverse vocal talents allow her to play a variety of characters, from deep-voiced femme fatales, to excitable tomboys, to sweet girly girls, making her one of the most diverse cartoon actresses.
Originally from Vancouver, her first voice acting role was in the animated series Ed, Edd n Eddy, where she played the voices of Nazz and May Kanker. From there, she went on to play dozens of roles in a number of video games, playing more than two dozen roles in Everquest II alone. She's known as one of the more prolific anime voice actresses, playing Guren in Naruto Shippuden, Franceska, Shota, Katen, and numerous others in Bleach, among many other roles. She's continued performing video game roles like Catherine and Skullgirls, and in fact does games more often than anything else she does. She's also done some prominent roles in western animation, most notably in Monster High as the voice of Abbey, Spectra, Cupid, and a number of other characters. She is also featured in Wild Grinders as numerous characters.
As is the case with many of the current crop of voice artists, she is One of Us, an avid video game and anime fan who even set up a Deviantart account to search for fanart of her characters.
As of 2017 during the SAG-AFTRA video game strike, Fitzgerald announced via Twitter that she is only accepting union-based roles as she has lost some of her older roles note .

- Vocal Evolution: Her Black Heart voice has deepened considerably over the years. In the first game, there was barely any difference between Noire's and Black Heart's voices. Two or three games later, Black Heart has reached very deep levels of husky.
- Woman of a Thousand Voices: She went from May Kanker to Morrigan (deep and sultry) to Black Heart and Chie (high-pitched and a bit nasally). That is an amazing range.
- Nowhere is this exemplified more spectacularly than her performance as Junko Enoshima, in which she seamlessly switches between around half a dozen totally distinct voices, sometimes even mid-sentence.
