Kari Wahlgren (born July 13, 1977) is an American actress who has provided English language voices for over a hundred cartoons, anime titles and video games.[5] She got her start in anime voice-overs as Haruko Haruhara in FLCL, and would later land major roles: Robin Sena in Witch Hunter Robin; Lavie in Last Exile;[6] Scarlett in Steamboy; Pacifica Casull, the Scrapped Princess; Saya Otonashi in Blood+; Kagami Hiiragi in Lucky Star; and Saber in Fate/zero. In animation, she has provided voices for a number of productions including Super Robot Monkey Team Hyperforce Go!, Fish Hooks, Phineas & Ferb, Ben 10, Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness, Winx Club and Kaijudo: Rise of the Duel Masters. In video games, she voiced lead characters Ashe in Final Fantasy XII and Shelke in Dirge of Cerberus – Final Fantasy VII.


Wahlgren was born and raised in Hoisington, Kansas.[3] She was inspired as a child by the Disney Princesses and other voices in animation.[7][8][9] On her eleventh birthday, when she and her family were in California and toured the building for Focus on the Family, she was asked to do a bit role in their radio drama Adventures in Odyssey, as an eleven-year-old character named Gloria McCoy.[10][note 1] She graduated from the University of Kansas with a Bachelor of Arts in Theater in 1999. She lived in Kansas City, Missouri[11] where she did some radio spots, then moved to Los Angeles in 2000 to work on her acting career. In an interview in Lawrence Journal-World, she said that she was not getting much on-camera work, so she shifted her energies towards voice-over work, and that her experience with dialogue and Shakespeare classes helped a lot towards landing roles that involved various characters, some of which had accents or were from certain time periods.[2]

Her debut anime role was Haruko Haruhara in a six-episode OVA series called FLCL. In an interview with Anime Tourist, she said that Haruko was the only character she got to audition for. She depicted her as close to the original dub but with some American interpretation to appeal to the audience,[12] and depending on how she was drawn, she changed her voice range from cartoon and child-like to realistic.[13] In a later review of the series, Bryce Coulter of Mania.com was impressed by her character work: "she definitely gives Haruko that twenty-something, sarcastic and almost punkish persona."[14]

Wahlgren's next major anime dub role was in Witch Hunter Robin, where she played the title character Robin Sena,[11] a soft-spoken girl who joins a group of witch hunters, but harbors some magic abilities of her own. Zac Bertschy of Anime News Network said she was "pleasant, subtle and perfect for the role" and wished the supporting voice cast would demonstrate such subtleties.[15] She voiced lead character Lavie Head in the steampunk fantasy series Last Exile. Allen Divers of Anime News Network grouped her with the "better known names of the California voice-acting scene".[16] She voiced title character Sakura Kinomoto in Bang Zoom!'s dubbing of Cardcaptor Sakura Movie 2: The Sealed Card of which Divers wrote that the voice actors did a great job of matching the emotions of the original Japanese voices, including Sakura's trademark expression "Hoe!", something that was missing in previous English adaptations.[17][18]

In 2004, she voiced a starring role in the animated feature film Steamboy, among actors Anna Paquin, Patrick Stewart and Alfred Molina. She played Scarlett, a teenage granddaughter of the corporation's chairman, described as spoiled and cruel, and generally annoying.[19][20][21] Peter Sanderson of IGN called Scarlett one of the most obnoxious characters he has ever encountered, and hardly stands up to her movie equivalent.[22] She voiced Chika Minazuki in Ai Yori Aoshi, a little cousin character. Way Jeng of Mania.com described her performance as energetic, yet innocent and simple, but contrasting to Wendee Lee's voicing of Tina Foster.[23]

In 2005, she voiced the female lead character Fuu Kasumi in Samurai Champloo. Carlo Santos of Anime News Network thought the characters sounded "well-suited to their personalities", but was concerned that Fuu "falls into the habit of sounding like every other ditzy anime girl out there."[24] In Scrapped Princess, she voices the title character Pacifica Casull, who is hunted down because of a prophecy where she would cause the destruction of the world if she lives to see her 16th birthday. Theron Martin called her acting of "Pacifica's brattiness and deep sensitivity solidly pegged", although it is different from her Japanese counterpart as it "lacks some of the poutiness",[25] and takes some time to get used to.[26]

Some of Wahlgren's anime work has won her unofficial awards by anime websites. Mania.com wrote that Wahlgren’s performance as the straight-man character Kagami Hiiragi in Lucky Star was absolute sarcastic perfection, and named her the Best Overlooked Actress for 2008 in their annual Anime Dubbies Awards.[27] Theron Martin liked Celty Sturluson, a headless dullahan character in Durarara!! who uses mostly body language and typed words. In his year-end awards for 2011, he selected Wahlgren the Best English Dub Performance – Female.[28]

In addition to her work in voicing anime, Wahlgren has been involved in a number of original animations (where the animation is done after recording her voice) as well as voice-over work in video games.[2] Her first voice-over role in video games was in Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Chaos Bleeds where she played Willow Rosenberg.[29] Her first lead voice role with Disney animation was with Super Robot Monkey Team Hyperforce Go!,[7] where she voiced Nova. She landed roles of Ashe in Final Fantasy XII and Shelkie in Dirge of Cerberus – Final Fantasy VII. In an interview conducted by UFFSite and RPGSite, she recounts how she received notice of the roles on two consecutive days, and said that the franchise was like "the holy grail of video game acting". She portrayed Ashe with a bit of a regal tone, after the director encouraged her to do so following a class where she was doing Shakespeare. She describes her character as someone a girl would look up to as "intelligent, diplomatic, and can kick ass and look good doing it". In contrast, Shelkie was desired to be portrayed as very cold and emotionless, which she describes as "cold, but sympathetic."[11][30] In the James Bond video game From Russia with Love, she voiced a Bond girl that was paired with Sean Connery's original voice.[2] She voiced the playable title character in the strategy-RPG Jeanne d'Arc.[9]

In 2012, she voiced Meg, the starring love interest in the Disney short film Paperman which screened before Wreck-It Ralph in the theaters. In an interview with her school's alumni association, she said that she was asked to do the role because of her previous involvements in Bolt and Tangled. Recording for the film took about 30 minutes, mostly of vocal sounds.[31] The short went on to win an Academy Award for Best Animated Short Film.[32]

In live-action works, she starred as Tinkerbell in an indie Peter Pan film rendition called Neverland, released in 2003. Her character is described as a "sullen sidekick" and "drugged-out".[2][33]

On the Behind the Voice Actors website, she was selected by the staff as the Voice Actress of the Year in 2012,[34] and was nominated for 2011[35] and 2013.[36] She received nominations in other categories: Best Female Lead Vocal Performer in an Anime Title for Celty in Durarara!! in 2011,[37] Best Female Lead Vocal Performance in a Television Series – Action / Drama for Allie Underhill in Kaijudo (TV series) in 2012, Best Female Lead Vocal Performance in a Television Series – Comedy / Musical for Tigress in Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness in 2012,[38] Best Female Lead Vocal Performance in an Anime Television Series/OVA for Saber in Fate/zero,[39] Best Female Supporting Vocal Performance in an Anime Movie/Special for Karina Lyle/Blue Rose in Tiger & Bunny: The Beginning in 2013,[40] Best Female Vocal Performance in a Television Series in a Guest Role – Action/Drama for Letta Turmond in Star Wars: The Clone Wars[41] and Best Female Vocal Performance in a Video Game in a Supporting Role for Courtney Collins in Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance[42]

Other ventures[edit]

In a Voices.com interview, she said that her parents are teachers, which encouraged her to support charities and organizations that promote reading and education. She established a small theatre scholarship for University of Kansas undergrads.[5][31][8]
