There's 4 voice actors that I have to do heart-tears to pick, but clearly mine would be Liam O' Brien. I would purchase a not-so-hot anime or game to hear his voice. Especially if it's an evil voice.

05-17-2010, 09:29 AM
Billy West, Crispin Freeman, Nolan North, Steve Blum.
05-17-2010, 10:54 AM
The most? Hmmm. I suppose James Arnold Taylor, hands down. (Though, I do admire Rob Paulsen, Maurice LaMarche, Billy West, Dee Bradley Baker, Phil LaMarr, Tress Macneil, Grey Delisle, June Foray, etc etc the list can go on and on)
05-17-2010, 11:02 AM
Richard Horvitz, Jeff Bennett, Mona Marshall, Tara Strong, and John DiMaggio, to name a few.
05-17-2010, 02:28 PM
If I have to pick just one... I gues it'd be Rob Paulsen. But that's a tough call.
05-17-2010, 03:48 PM
Tara Strong and Colleen Clinkenbeard. <3 ......also Steven Jay Blum and Crispin Freeman.
05-17-2010, 08:52 PM
Laura Bailey, Crispin Freeman, Billy West, and Tara Strong.
05-17-2010, 09:08 PM
Crispin Freeman; gorgeous voice, prolific, knowledgeable, polite, charming, and talented~
05-17-2010, 09:33 PM
I can't decide between Laura Bailey and Crispen Freeman. I admire both of them a lot. ^^
05-17-2010, 09:46 PM
That's a tough one... It's probably a toss-up between Cynthia Martinez, Yuri Lowenthal, Kirk Thornton and Jimeson Price. Seriously, don't make me pick between them... it's too hard.:sweat
05-17-2010, 10:34 PM
Melissa Fahn.... for being able to carry on a career in voice over and stage acting at the same time.
05-17-2010, 10:53 PM
Tara Strong, hands down.
05-17-2010, 11:00 PM
Steve Blum, Mike McFarland, Cristina Vee, Yuri Lowenthal, Laura Bailey, Todd Habberkorn, and and and too many to think of Dx
05-17-2010, 11:03 PM
I'd say the two I admire the most would be Jon Culshaw and Chris Barrie (of course, like a lot of voice actors, they both do a lot of live action acting as well). I got into voice acting through impressions, so it's not a surprise they're both prolific impressionists. Although his live action roles are certainly more famous than his voiceover ones, I'd also say John Simm - I was surprised when I realised the range that guy has (and he's a Northerner).
05-18-2010, 09:30 PM
Vic Mignogna, Todd Haberkorn, Aaron Dismuke, Hiro Shimono, Mamoru Miyano ^^b

Jim Cummings, David Kaye, Greg Ayers, Lucien Dodge.
Jim Cummings voiced so many of my favorite characters growing up, David Kaye voiced a favorite character in one of the first anime series that I followed, Greg Ayers because he, Tiffany Grant, and Carrie Savage came to my rescue running an AVA Panel (first time, alone, at my first con) at Nekocon 7, and Lucien because he's awesome and still manages to do awesome AVA stuff like Lost Frontier for me :).
05-19-2010, 04:44 AM
I could say the VAs of my favorite bishies for doing such a wonderful job bringing them to life...but when it comes down to it, I think I'd have to say...
Just look at his credits! Such wonder! Such diversity! From Pooh Bear to also picking up Tigger with nary a notice to the trained ear of the VA switch. Road Rover villians, the two main characters of Bonkers, a number of notable Rescue Ranger&Darkwing Duck characters, Morroco Mole, and singing for Scar and Rasputen! Only a portion of his work as he's been in many genres, but he's been a part of many of my favorite shows.

Liam O' Brien and Jamieson Price after hearing those 2 talk in nier that really was the funnist things i ever heard
05-19-2010, 08:44 PM
Hmm I really love Alyson Court and Cam Clarke.
05-19-2010, 09:02 PM
Yuri Lowenthal xO
05-19-2010, 09:05 PM
there's a handful of names:
Johnny Yong Bosch
Legendary VA Artist/Musician/Hot-throb DAN GREEN
Ultimately, I think Chris Sabat was THE one cause I use to do the Vegeta voice in high school and at anime club xD
05-20-2010, 06:51 PM
Kirby Morrow. :)
05-20-2010, 08:43 PM
It's a tossup between Dom Armato and Jenny Sharpe...but don't tell either of them I said that, though! :sweat
05-24-2010, 03:28 AM
Well, the obvious choice is Steven Mane. Then the rest get kind of hazy, but I think I can come up with a few:
Pete Stacker (Here's to you, Real Voice Actor of Genius)
And a good majority of 4-Kids voice actors
Takaya Kuroda. I could name more, but I like his work a LOT.
05-24-2010, 08:08 AM
I normally avoid threads like this due to the many contacts and relationships I've developed with so many professional voice actors. I just don't want to be accused of "playing favorites." So I'm going to dodge the question about those I "admire most" by listing those who have been the most influential for sparking my interest in voice acting:
Melissa Fahn.... for being able to carry on a career in voice over and stage acting at the same time.That's actually not as difficult as you might think. In fact, there are plenty of pro voice actors who still hold "day jobs." And scheduling VO work around being involved in stage productions is generally not difficult.

Johnny Yong Bosch (shush)
Liam O Brien
