Biography:
Wendee Lee has over 300 credits as a voice actress in anime, video games, and live action. She is best known for the roles of Faye Valentine (Cowboy Bebop), Haruhi (The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya), TK (Digimon Adventure), and Konata Izumi (Lucky Star). In addition, she has been ADR Director for anime including Bleach and Outlaw Star.

Wendee was born and raised in Southern California, living between San Francisco and Los Angeles as a child. She knew from a very young age that she would become an actress and began performing in theatre and studying dance. By the time she was a teenager, she was a full time dancer and budding choreographer.

A lucky break turned into an audition and landed Wendee her first anime role in Robotech. She kept her day jobs, and continued working as a struggling actress and voice artist. A variety of part time jobs ensued, including working as a dance instructor, make-up artist, and choreographer.

Over time, her voice resume grew and afforded her the opportunity to branch into ADR script writing, adapting, and finally directing. It was difficult breaking into the all-male world of voice directors at the time, but Wendee found a way in and has gone on to direct numerous productions for network broadcast as well as many other major anime titles.

Now she has an extensive list of titles to her credit as voice artist, writer, adapter, and director and has had a number of theatrical as well as network releases all over the world. She works full time as an actress and director and loves the anonymity animation provides. She is still active in theatre and choreographs everything from lives shows to music videos. She lives with her musician husband in Southern California and collaborates with him musically while continuing to do the work she so loves in the world of animation.
