The yes-it’s-true-born-and-raised-in-Los-Angeles-because-someone-had-to-be Rachel Robinson’s voice spans the arenas of national commercials, animation, video games, narration, promos and now, most recently, anime. Sometimes it spans across the street, trying to get the construction workers to pipe down.
She is likely best known for her role as Oerba Yun Fang, of Final Fantasy XIII, reprising it in Final Fantasy XIII-2 and for the third and final (ha) time in Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy. Despite popular opinion she is, in fact, not Australian; but is happy she was able to convince people otherwise. Soon, she will be voicing the role of Nova in the upcoming voice-controlled strategy game There Came an Echo with Wil Wheaton.
Other noted video game roles (including but not limited to): Argonian Guildmaster Sees-All-Colors and Hagraven – The Elder Scrolls Online, Charr Rox Whetstone + ancillaries – Guild Wars 2, Celsius – Tales of Xillia (1 and 2), Holly Whyte – Bravely Default, Commander Nowak – Q.U.B.E.: Director’s Cut, Female Veteran – Defiance, Sara Sidle – CSI: Fatal Conspiracy, The President – Bombshell, and currently about 12 roles in Firefall that range in dialect and volume from Texan to Australian to Irish to Mid-Atlantic to Ukranian and tons in between. The different personalities in her love that. Shut up! They do not!
In anime, she’s barked as the tattooed, chainsmoking and fun-loving Nazi vampire, Zorin Blitz in Hellsing Ultimate *(shameless plug: on Toonami in September!); cajoled as Empress Megaria, Lord of the Darkness Realm, in Kaijudo: Rise of the Duel Masters, and kiah’d as violet-haired and short tempered warrior/schoolgirl Uncho Kan’u in Ikki Tousen. Other warblings include Queen Elizabeth II – Hetalia: The Beautiful World; nun-with-an-agenda Lidvia Lorenzetti – A Certain Magical Index II, Yuki Mizushima – The Devil is a Part Timer!, various roles in both Attack on Titan and Space Dandy, and major roles in two respective forthcoming, awesome and still-hush-hush series that it’s killing her not to talk about. Seriously. Running out of duct tape. She also really wants to play a major weirdo soon.
She was recently announced as Haruka in Rolling Girls, Commander in Nobunagun and and Cameran in Sailor Moon (Viz).
Arbitrary oddity presents a claymated Pamela Anderson and Verne Troyer in Celebrity Death Match, 2 bitchy girls in American Dad!, Vera Cortez in the online comic companion piece to Dead Space, and Mary; Mother of Jesus, in That Darn Jesus in Universal Remote; as well as many other auxiliary hither-and-yon characters. She also writes, sings, and paints. Portraits or walls. She has a BFA from Syracuse University in Film/Art with concentration in writing, is a classically trained pianist, an excellent driver and knows the military alphabet. She’s also been on a reality show, but that doesn’t get discussed without alcohol.
