Lenore Elizabeth Zann (born 22 November 1959 in Sydney, Australia) is an Australian-born Canadian actress who has given live and voice-only performances. She is best known for providing the voice of Rogue in X-Men: The Animated Series, but has also appeared in many other cartoons and has also had on-camera roles in live-action works like Happy Birthday to Me and The L Word.

She also holds the title of being the voice artist with the most cross-regional work under her belt, besting Michael Sinterniklaas and Carrie Savage. In addition to being fairly active in both the Toronto and Vancouver voice-acting pools, she also did voice work in Los Angeles-based studios and even provided a voice to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2003), which had a New York City-based voice cast.

She's mostly retired from acting these days, though, and is currently a rather active figure in Canadian Politics from Nova Scotia. Between 2019 and 2021, she served in Canada's House of Commons as a Liberal Member of Parliament for the Cumberland—Colchester federal electoral district (winning after the retirement of Bill Casey, who had represented the same district as a Progressive Conservative, modern Conservative, independent, and finally as a Liberal; serving until she lost to Conservative challenger Stephen Ellis). She also served as a Nova Scotia New Democratic Member of the Legislative Assembly for the Truro-Bible Hill electoral district (later Truro-Bible Hill-Millbrook-Salmon River from 2013) in the Nova Scotia House of Assembly from 2009 until 2019. She stopped identifying as a provincial New Democrat in June 2019 and sat as an independent in the provincial legislature until that September, when she resigned to focus on her federal campaign.
