One of the major stories right now is the interview with voice actress Erin Fitzgerald (nu-Chie from P3, Agnes from Bravely Default, Sorceress from Dragon's Crown, Noire from Hyperdimension Neptunia, and more!)  I'm aiming to interview more voice actors from the games we play because voice over work is something near and dear to me (I myself am a fledgling voice over artist with 4 audiobook narrations to my credit and more to come) and it's just really cool to interview our favorite characters, ya know?  I can say that I interviewed Chie!  

So who are some voice actors you would potentially like to see interviewed?  

VA interviews we have so far:
Jill Melancon: http://www.rpgfan.com/features/Jill_Melancon_Interview/index.html
Erin Fitzgerald: http://www.rpgfan.com/features/Erin_Fitzgerald_Interview/index.html
Vic Mignogna: http://www.rpgfan.com/features/Vic_Mignogna_Interview/index.html
Kira Buckland: http://www.rpgfan.com/features/Kira_Buckland_Interview/index.html
Lucien Dodge: http://www.rpgfan.com/features/Lucien_Dodge_Interview/index.html

Rolf Saxon - Broken Sword Series
Tara Strong - Multiple games including FFX
Nolan North - Uncharted, Deadpool and a bunch of other stuff
David Hayter - MGS
Troy Baker - Loads of stuff
Jennifer Hale - Pretty much every game known to man.

I know most of these are AAA guys, and not all of them are known for RPGs, but you asked :)

All good, Maxx.  Yeah, I have to keep it to actors attached to games that fall under RPGFan's coverage but any and all suggestions are welcome. 

Rolf Saxon and Troy Baker are great suggestions.   

I would be over the moon to snag interviews with AAA talent like Jennifer Hale, Tara Strong, Jonny Yong Bosch, Michelle Ruff, et al, but I think I need a few more interviews under my belt before I can leverage for those.  And I'd love to get an interview with Richard Epcar (Ansem from Kingdom Hearts, Ziggy from Xenosaga).

And since several of you are into smaller/indie games, any suggestions of up-and-comers who you think are great are welcome too.  I'd love to snag an interview with Lucien Dodge who's done a lot of indie games and seems to be getting more name recognition from the big boys.

Then how about Ashly Burch - She's climbing to the big leagues but might still be fairly approachable.
Or maybe Logan Cunningham (The narrator from Bastion, among others).

Digging the suggestions.  I hope more people chime in with others.

Had the pleasure of meeting Lauren Landa (ToX's Leia) at Anime Boston this year and she was an absolute joy to talk to. I'd love to see a full interview with her. Just don't mention Alpacas or that might be the whole interview right there.

When I think alpacas, I think School Idol Festival.  

Good suggestion, though. She seems cool.

I got one for you Dinecrest that you may be feeling it. Pun intended. I think any of the vocal cast of Xenoblade Chronicles would be awesome. We've seen a lot of memes and members here quoting now famous expressions that are now recognizable as a result of using them often. It's that irresistible English accent that most of westerners all like. Well acted dialog that leaves the gamer watching the whole cut scene without skipping onto further gameplay and allows the gamer to immerse themselves in the game plot. That was one of the many reasons I dumped 100+ hours into Xenoblade Chronicles. I'm dying to know if they're bringing back the same dubbing studio to handle Xenoblade Chronicles X.

I'm not too familiar with Xenoblade Chronicles, so I definitely want to see some of these memes and popular expressions.  This way, I can gain familiarity with the characters and try and approach their respective actors. 

A lot of great suggestions here folks.  I hope I can make at least some of them happen.

It'd be interesting to track down some of the real early voice actors - people who worked on like Rhapsody: A Musical Adventure, for instance, from the late 90s.

BRILLIANT IDEA.
IT'S REYN TIME~!!!!!!!

Unfortunately, Melia might be a bit too popular these days to get hold of.  But that'd be a win-win for two fandoms.

I've got to pop Matthew Mercer and Liam O'Brien into the mix. I'm a big fan of both of them and their work.

D- As much as I'd want to reach out to David Hayter, he hasn't really had any notable roles in the types of games RPGFan covers.  He's brilliant as Solid Snake in the Metal Gear Solid games, but RPGFan doesn't cover those.  I said earlier that I'm limited to interviewing actors whose work is/was/will be in games that fit RPGFan's coverage. 

Several of the other suggestions made here are duly noted.  There are some I hadn't thought of.  One gent I definitely want to try and interview is Richard Epcar (Ansem in Kingdom Hearts, Ziggy in Xenosaga). 

There is another interview I have in the works, so look forward to that.
