Janet Varney's acting and voice-acting roles include:


Tropes that apply to her include:

  • Adorkable : She shows a cute geekiness with her fans and those close to her.
  • Approval of God: She noted at a convention that some fans had been reluctant to give her their fanart of Korra and Asami kissing or about to kiss. She actively encouraged fans not to worry and said she would happily sign any such fanart.
    • She also supported a fan project to finish the French dub of Korra before the rest of the series received an official one.
  • Bi the Way: She came out saying she's "made no secret of [her] bisexuality".
  • The Danza: Her character in Norm of the North is also named Janet.
  • Hiccup Hijinks : At times, she gets hiccups from getting too excited.
  • Name's the Same: She's played three different characters with variations of the name "Stacy".
  • Playing Against Type: With the exception of Korra, she's mostly known for more comedic roles.
  • Promoted Fangirl: Janet Varney was a big fan of Avatar: The Last Airbender even before auditioning for the role of Korra; needless to say she was stoked to hear that she'd booked the part.

  • Queer Character, Queer Actor: She's bisexual, and so is Korra.
