Susan Roman

For Susan Roman, working in the wild and wacky world of animation for most of her adult life has been nothing short of a dream come true. Let's be frank, some of her projects didn't exactly go on to become household names. Piggsburg Pigs, with LA director Stu Rosen at the helm, comes to mind. But it was during that series (recorded ensemble, which hardly ever happens anymore) that Mr. Rosen introduced the concept of “the key phrase” - possibly the best tool ever invented to keep a voice actor on track, and something which she has never forgotten.

And there were projects that kept generations of kids tuned in: like the original Care Bears series – where she got to play a boy (Champ Bear) for the first time - and another Nelvana co-production, Tin Tin, in which she yipped and yapped her way through 43 episodes as a little white dog named Snowy. And how could she forget the joy of finding her inner princess (The Berry Princess in Strawberry Shortcake Meets the Berrykins)... not to mention her inner bird (Eddie Storkowitz in Birdz.) Then she got to play a little boy AND a little girl in the same series (Sara Lynn and Eddie in Fisher-Price's Little People.) But before that, she was cast in the gritty, totally-ahead-of-its-time major motion picture, Rock & Rule – where she played Angel, the speaking voice of rocker Debbie Harry. Then came the cult classic, Heavy Metal, in which she played 'The Girl in the Harry Canyon Sequence' – a character whose cup size magically ballooned to epic proportions by the time she got knocked off, but hey, the animator decided to be a little creative. (Check it out...)

And so it continued: Melissa in The Raccoons, James the Red Tank Engine in Thomas and the Magic Railroad, Hannah Dundee in Cadillacs and Dinosaurs, Jess in Redwall, Miss BG's mom in Miss BG, Tika in Barbie as the Island Princess, Tinsel in The Miser Brother's Christmas...

But, after all of that, and hopefully many more to come, there is one part that will always remain at the top of Susan's list: Sailor Jupiter in Sailor Moon. When something is such a perfect fit, she says, you really have to thank your lucky stars – which she does, almost every day.

Sail on...
