If you paid any attention to the commentary, her name is Ellen McClain. T_T -Anon —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 23:55, 19 December 2007 (UTC)

all the sources indicate the spelling "McLain" is correct. xenocidic (talk) 15:16, 7 February 2008 (UTC)
Within the commentary for Portal, her name is spelt "McClain" or "McClane" several times. Her voice is also used within the other games in the orange box, and the credits in the manual booklet thing list her as "McClain" in one game, and "McClane" in another. I just think they didn't know how to spell her name, and different people guessed different ways =] -- (talk) 19:47, 20 December 2009 (UTC)

Can someone add a recording of her voice?[edit]

I've played some of these games but I can't think of her voice. Since she is a voice actor would a recording of her voice be acceptable material? -- (talk) 17:20, 31 December 2007 (UTC)

That's partly because she's REALLY good at doing other tones. I could lift a couple seconds of her speaking naturaly from the Portal commentary, if that's an acceptable entry. --Kinkoblast (talk) 16:46, 2 January 2008 (UTC)
Maybe get her saying "This is the final test" from the start of Test Chamber 19 in Portal. I'll search for info on copyright laws, but I'm pretty sure it'll be okay. It's just a couple seconds. Flash man999 (not logged in) (talk) 06:17, 27 October 2009 (UTC)


Add an image? I've found several with google, can an image of a person be copyrighted?


"She is the only person to have her voice in all the games in The Orange Box."

Wow, don't know how relevant this is guys. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 12:47, 17 December 2008 (UTC)

I fail to see the relevance of this article at all. It's not like every person who contributed to a game in some way needs their own wiki bio, unless they're especially notable. (talk) 13:53, 14 October 2009 (UTC)

This is very notable. I think many players of the games (and there are a lot) would want information about the very likable characters voiced by Ellen, and they need a page to codify that information. Sushovande (talk) 20:35, 28 April 2011 (UTC)

Turret opera (Portal 2)[edit]

I believe she also does the opera singing for the turret opera bit, not sure of any citations I can provide though. I'm referring to this.

Mild Vandalism[edit]

No, she is not married to Gabe Newell. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Dubhuir (talkcontribs) 22:30, 25 April 2011 (UTC)

Left 4 Dead 2[edit]

An additional Filmography note, she provided the voice of the witch in L4D2. Ref: —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 02:10, 26 April 2011 (UTC)

"Best Performance by a Human Female"[edit]

'In December 2011, she won the Spike Video Game Award in the category "Best Performance by a Human Female" for her voice acting as GLaDOS in Portal 2, unhindered by the ironic fact that GLaDOS isn't actually a human female.' What exactly is the point here? As it's written, the award is for the best performance BY a human female, not FOR [the presentation of] a human female. I fail to see the irony.Weirdtheory (talk) 17:35, 28 February 2012 (UTC)

Only if there's third-party coverage in reliable sources, such as published reviews or newspaper articles that mention this web series in some detail. Huon (talk) 23:08, 3 May 2014 (UTC)
