Episode: "Jedi Crash"
Series: Star Wars: The Clone Wars
Season 1, Episode 13
Original Air Date: January 16, 2009
The story presents a moral challenge to the Jedi cause that we don't often see in Star Wars. I'm hesitant to suggest it but this is, sort of, Star Trek territory. I like it! In the movies, we embrace the Jedi because they do cool magic tricks and they're clearly preferable to the alternative. But they rarely, if ever, get hit from the Left, to borrow from the political-speak of our own world. A comparable challenge is raised by the Ewoks in the novelization of Return of the Jedi but it was not included in the film. It's nice to see it included here.
Guinness World Records identifies her as "the most prolific videogame voice actor (female)." The list is lengthy, indeed. Rest assured, if you've ever played a videogame with professional voices, hers was probably one of them. The list of television work is long, too. Among the notables: Spider-Man, Batman, Avatar: The Last Airbender and, my favorite, Ms. Keane, the girls' teacher in The Powerpuff Girls. She has been married to Barry Oswick since 2009. They have one son.
