• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

Laura Dawn Bailey (born May 28, 1981) is an American actress and voice actress. Best known for her anime roles (mostly FUNimation titles), she has also supplied voices in video games and worked as staff on several anime series. Perhaps her best known voice over appearance is as Rayne in the Blood Rayne video game series, Lust from Fullmetal Alchemist, or Rise Kujikawa from Persona 4. She is currently married to fellow voice actor Travis Willingham.

Anime VA Roles

Video Game VA Roles

Tropes Applicable:

  • Ms. Fanservice: A lot of her characters tend to be rather attractive, from Harribel, Homura, Lust and Rayne, to Chun-Li, Anko, Kira Carsen and Rise Kujikawa. Laura herself also looks nice.
  • One of Us: Big fan of anime as well as video games. Particularly Dragon Age and Final Fantasy (X is her personal favorite).
  • Relationship Voice Actor: With Travis Willingham. She once mentioned at an anime convention in 2010 that while in the middle of a recording session for Lust's final episode in Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, she received a text message from Travis that consisted of one line: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH! For those who don't know why that's so funny, the linked video also has Travis's side of the story.
    • And in Binary Domain, she plays the Love Interests to the main character, who is voiced by Travis. As more than one snarky observer has commented, "That must have been a pretty easy 'acting' job."
    • Then we have a bit of a subversion in Trauma Team, where Travis voices diagnostician Gabriel and has his first mission with patient high schooler Nicole who's voiced by her. And of course, awkwardness ensues between the age gap, but it's pure embarrassment on both sides.
  • Stupid Sexy Flanders: Female listeners often have a hard time not feeling this when Laura uses her "Lust" voice.
  • Woman Of A Thousand Voices: She has very impressive voice range, being able to voice both male and female characters.
