Colleen Smith Clinkenbeard (born April 13, 1980) is an American voice actress, line producer, ADR director, and script writer at Funimation who provides the voices for a number of English versions of Japanese anime series, and video games.


As a stage actress in Dallas, Clinkenbeard got involved in voice-over when fellow voice actress Laura Bailey brought her to Funimation for an audition.[6] Her first voice role was in Dragonball GT,[7] She landed starring roles of Rachel Moore in Case Closed and Éclair in Kiddy Grade. Midway through Kiddy Grade, director Justin Cook had her be the ADR director for the series. She would later direct along with Mike McFarland on Fullmetal Alchemist which came out in November 2004 on Cartoon Network.[6]

Clinkenbeard went on to provide the voices of Monkey D. Luffy in One Piece,[8] Moka Akashiya's inner personality in Rosario + Vampire, Erza Scarlet in Fairy Tail and Yuko Ichihara in xxxHolic. She is known for a wide vocal range, but most frequently plays strong-willed women, femmes fatales or young boys.

Personal life[edit]

Clinkenbeard is best friends with Laura Bailey,[9] who was once her roommate while working at Funimation.[10] On September 4, 2014, Clinkenbeard and husband, Patric Carroll, welcomed their first child, a son named Rhodes Vandelow Carroll.[4][5]
