I'm curious if there are any non-TF related voices or voice actors that you have fallen in love with over the course of viewership.

I absolutely love Jennifer Hale's Commander Shepherd, and in particular her romance with Liara. To the point that I can't imagine playing as a dude or romancing anyone else.
I like bears.

Its cool isn't it? And so memorable. Conversely I wouldn't say Bill Murray has the best voice in the world, but its quite excellent. More than that its so full of style. He just about counts as he did the voice of live acton Garfield!

Then there's John Hurt, John Thaw and most of the cast of Watershed Down. And ever since Antonio Banderas voiced Puss in Boots I just can't take him seriously anymore because he is Puss in Boots in everything now. But I like it that way.

Personally Estelle in Steven Universe has been my favorite voice of late, but I think any Brittish-African. Character or voice has become a weak spot for me in how I adore their voices.

Bit of an addendum but I am now horrified I forgot in that there really isn't a role Mark Hamil hasn't voiced that I don't end up enjoying if not adoring.

The same here. Some other roles she did:
The Black Cat in the 90s Spider-Man cartoon.
Captain Marvel in The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes
Ivy in Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego.
Bastila Shen in Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic
Krem in Dragon Age: Inquisition
Giantagna and Killer Frost in Justice League and Justice League Unlimited
Killer Frost in Batman: Assault on Arkham

I also love Claudia Black:
Morrigan in Dragon Age: Origins and Dragon Age: Inquisition
Admiral Xen and Matriarch Aethyta in Mass Effect 2 and Mass Effect 3

Agreed! I've played through as a male as well but I just didn't think Mark Meer brought anywhere near the subtlety that Hale does to the female version of the character. Male Shepard comes off as either a superhero or a cackling psycho, but Female Shepard is sympathetic and likeable and "real" no matter how far you go towards one end or the other of the paragon/renegade spectrum.

The rest of the voice cast in the games is great too, with Kieth David being a real standout as Anderson (who also really impressed me in Gargoyles back in the day).

Ironically, Tara Strong replaced Sorkin in the Arkham video games and did such a good job that I can't even tell it's a different actress.

Batman: TAS had so many fantastic voice actors, though. Kevin Conroy's voice is so ingrained on my psyche as "Batman" that nobody else sounds right unless they're doing an impression of him. And the rest of the cast is nearly as iconic, with Mark Hamill's Joker, Efrem Zimbalist's Alfred, Adrienne Barbeau's Catwoman and Sorkin's Harley leading the pack.

Oh without a doubt is David an amaing voice actor. He can carry a veey wide range of emotions through various roles, from his silly bits in Adventure time to the amusing bit in Saints Row 4 where the two chars voiced by him argue they don't sound similar to the fun and sinister tones of Dr. Faciller from Princess and the Frog. And of course that smoky gravelly voice he used for the Arbiter and Goliath.

Garth David-Lloyd as Solas in DA:I in the last DLC he gives a masterful performance as a tragic character trying to save his people a second time that he openly admits that his future plan he will have to destroy the world and kill millions and yet you really can't hate him because he's not an insane hateful bastard in fact it's actually wants the world to have some peace before he ends it makes him even more sad and even tells the Inquisitor he would love to be proven wrong.
I hope Lloyd returns as Solas in the next Dragon Age this guy could be one of the greatest villains in video games.

Eve Myles as Merrill in Dragon Age II, Merrill might be the sweetest eleven blood mage obsessed with fixing a magic mirror to the point where she is exiled from her clan for doing it. She is also extremely naive to the point of being kind of being kind of stupid. She also babbles a lot. She also grows as a character (IMHO Merrill and Isabela are the only two love interests that have decent if very predicable character arcs in DA2) she also has the best grossed out "ooh" ever recorded.


Simon Templeman as Kain in The Legacy of Kain series and Loghain in Dragon Age: Origins and a ton of other characters. These two characters are two of the most complex and greatest anti-heroes or villains in games. J

Don't forget that she also played a character in Robotech Invasion called Guppy.

Alix Regan as the British female Inquisitor in DA:I Regan has been in several BioWare games she was in Dragon Age: Origins as a Knight loyal to Loghain who can be a boss battle or you talk her out of it. She also played a different character in the DA:O-Awakening as the only character who dies in Joining ritual to become a Grey Warden. While those parts were decent she really didn't get much to do with them I guess her big break came as Communication Specialist Samantha Traynor in Mass Effect 3 which was first time BioWare had introduced an openly 100% lesbian character to their game. Now before you start saying that they had lesbian and gay characters in their games before ME3 technically they didn't they had bisexual characters (except for Junhi in Kotor but she both in metaphorically and literally in the closet because of Lucasarts not wanting LGBT characters in the Star Wars Universe) Liara, Leliana, Zevran, Silk Fox, Sky, Kelly Chambers, The Asari Consort, and all of the love interests in Dragon Age II (except for Sebastian who was straight and chaste) were all romanceable by both genders. Traynor was romanceable only by female Shepard and she had great chemistry with Jennifer Hale although Traynor is a great character she came in so late in the series and all my Femsheps ended up with Liara (except for one) it made it hard to start a relationship because of being with so long and through so much with Liara to leave her.

Then she got do the Inquisitor as the default human and elf voice and Samlee Montaro as the default Dwarf and Qunari voice although you can switch both around). Surprise she's in my opinion the better of the two for the human, elf, and dwarf. Although IMHO Montaro is the better voice for the female Qunari due do her slightly deeper voice and American accent she does for the game and that sounds better coming out a 7+ foot tall character with horns on her head than Regan's rather gentle upper-middle class posh British accent just sounds off to me in regards to the Qunari.
