Lisa Ortiz

Lisa Ortiz (born 11 December 1974, New York), is a 4Kids Entertainment voice actress. She was most prominently known as the previous voice of Amy Rose as of Sonic X and all games starting with Shadow the Hedgehog, replacing Jennifer Douillard in 2005. She also provided the voice of Christina Cooper, the President's secretary, and Sophia, a lady-in-waiting of Princess Elise, in Sonic the Hedgehog (2006). She was replaced by Cindy Robinson as the voice of Amy in 2010.


Her reception with Sonic fans is mostly positive. Like most of the 4Kids actors, Ortiz started off a with mixed reaction, but eventually gained a highly positive reception for her role as Amy Rose. Fans have praised her performance for being youthful, energetic, and showing emotion perfectly (especially when Amy gets angry or shows her feelings for Sonic) as opposed to Jennifer Douillard, whom many fans claimed had no emotion in her voice, and in comparison to Cindy Robinson, whose high pitched performance has gained a lot of negative reception.
