Notable roles

She was the voice of the twins Phil and Lil DeVille and their mother Betty in the popular animated series Rugrats (and its subsequent spinoff All Grown Up!), her voicing of Kanga in the Walt Disney series of Winnie The Pooh projects, Cadpig in Disney's 101 Dalmatians: The Series, Goof Troop as Debby in "Leader of the Pack," Bubbles in the What-a-Cartoon! episodes of The Powerpuff Girls, Jetta in PBS Kids' Clifford the Big Red Dog and Daffodil in PBS Kids' Clifford's Puppy Days, and her recurring role as Cubert Farnsworth and Albert and Nina the orphans in Futurama (she also voiced Fry ex-girlfriend Michelle, but she was replaced by Sarah Silverman in Michelle's next two appearances). She voiced Angel Puppy in Kipper the Dog. She is voiced for the Enchantress from Beauty and the Beast: The Enchanted Christmas. She was also the voice of Jenny's sister, XJ-5, in the cartoon My Life as a Teenage Robot. She also voiced for Kiki's Mother in the film Kiki's Delivery Service, and Kanta's Mother in My Neighbor Totoro.

Recurring roles

She was also a regularly recurring voice in the Disney animated Gargoyles series, portraying Princess Katherine, Ophelia, The Weird Sisters and Maggie Reed. As is evidenced by her choice of roles, her range sometimes enables her to voice young male characters as well as females. She also voiced one of the Bimbettes in Disney's Beauty and the Beast and Attina in The Little Mermaid.

She voiced the reindeer, 'Chet', in 'The Santa Clause 2'. She also voiced the cow, 'Annabelle', in 'Annabelle's Wish'.

Diversity

Her vocal talents have enabled her to voice a wide variety of characters of all ages, from Fifi Le Fume and Little Sneezer in Tiny Toon Adventures, to Dexter's mother in the popular cartoon Dexter's Laboratory, Dusty in Handy Manny, Agent K in The Replacements, Grace in Bruno the Kid, Janine Melnitz in The Real Ghostbusters (Replacing Laura Summer due to Network changes), Nerissa from W.I.T.C.H., Linka from Captain Planet and the Planeteers, Miriam Pataki (Helga's mother) in Hey Arnold!, Betty Quinlan from The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius, Maddie Fenton in the Nickelodeon series Danny Phantom, and Shin Nohara and his mother Mitzi Nohara in the UK dub of the anime Shin-chan. She was also in three videogame adaption shows, voicing of Princess Whats-Her-Name in Earthworm Jim and being the third and last person to voice Betina in Rayman: The Animated Series She also voiced Princess Sally Acorn in the Sonic the Hedgehog Satam series. She also played a role in the Cartoon Network cartoon Chowder as the leader of the Big Hat Biddies and as the dying unicorn. More roles played by her are the voices of "Pudgy", "Masa", and "Sara" in the Animatrix short film, "Beyond."

In addition to these more prominent roles, Soucie has an extensive list of other voice credits to her name, spanning some twenty years and featuring a great variety of roles. As is often the case with voice actors, the ambiguous and supplementary credit "Additional Voices" appears several times in her filmography and this may refer to her voicing not just one, but several very minor characters in one particular piece of work, depending upon demand.

Appearances of Soucie's natural voice

As well as manipulating her voice to achieve a variety of effects (for example, she would use a slightly "stretched" version of her Lil voice from Rugrats to play Haide in Lola & Virginia, Tish the "nerdy" girl, in The Weekenders and the Pony Puff Princess Leader from the Dexter's Laboratory episode "Dee Dee's Tail"), Soucie has used her natural voice in several roles, including Lola Bunny in Space Jam, Morgana Macawber from Darkwing Duck, and the Sonic the Hedgehog character Princess Sally. In the same series, she also voiced Sally's handheld computer, "NICOLE". Kath also plays Duchess from The Aristocats in House of Mouse. She also uses a British voice in order to play Agent Honeydew on the now Boomerang-viewed show Dexter's Laboratory. She will voice Tillie, Emma, Melissa & Greendale Rocket On Casey Jr. The Circus Engine & Friends.

Talent for voicing boys

Her talent for voicing boys has been heard on series such as As Told By Ginger (as Courtney Gripling's younger brother Blake), The Life and Times of Juniper Lee (as Juniper's younger brother, Ray Ray), in Baby Blues, on which the Bitterman kids Rodney and Megan sounded reminiscent of the DeVille twins, and she voiced Tommy Tinkerton, the main character in the 2004 movie The Legend of Frosty the Snowman. She also supplied her voice to Butch in Disney's Recess.

Work in video games

Soucie also has experience voicing many computer game characters, such as Taro in Final Fantasy X-2, Elena in Dark Cloud 2, Tavion in Jedi Outcast and Jedi Academy, Choco in Arc the Lad: Twilight of the Spirits, Cooke in Lost Odyssey, and both Queen Ellesime and Aerie in Bioware's Baldur's Gate II. Most recently, she has contributed additional voices to Dragon Age: Origins, held to be the spiritual successor to the Baldur's Gate series.

She has also worked with Tim Schaefer twice, playing Maureen in the LucasArts adventure game Full Throttle (and the LucasArts game "Grim Fandango"), and again when she played Lita Halford in Brütal Legend (contrary to popular misconception, Lita Ford did not voice this character).

Although Aerie's angst did not endear her to all players, many were very sympathetic to her character and, in an interview, Bioware's David Gaider commented on these reactions and the enthusiasm and affection that Aerie often generated: "People seem divided on whether they love her or hate her, but everyone reacts pretty strongly to her. What can be a better legacy than that?" [1]. She voices the character Jenny in Gun who carries a deadly rifle and an attitude to match.

She is also heard voicing Priscilla the Pig in 102 Dalmatians: Puppies to the Rescue, Sally and Shock from The Nightmare Before Christmas: Oogie's Revenge and Sora's Mother in the Kingdom Hearts series. Another of her video game roles was that of Amanda Evert in the 2006 game Tomb Raider: Legend; a role which she reprised in the 2008 sequel Tomb Raider: Underworld. Soucie also voiced Laura and The Master's "female" voice in Fallout. She voices Cooke in the RPG Lost Odyssey, using the same voice as the orphan from Futurama. Soucie also enacts the "voices" of the undead females in Blizzard Entertainment's MMORPG, World of Warcraft. Similarly, she also voiced one of the many miscellaneous character roles in Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. She also plays the voice of Angela Cross in Ratchet & Clank: Going Commando.

Soucie voiced several women in Thrillville and Thrillville: Off the Rails.
