Susan Blu

Susan first became known to Transformers fans when she was cast as the forceful female Autobot, Arcee, in 1986's The Transformers: The Movie. She would continue to portray the character in seasons three and four of the original cartoon, as well as voicing numerous other characters, most notably Earth Defence Command Officer Marissa Faireborn. Susan would return to the role of Arcee after 21 years for the fan-favourite series, Transformers: Animated.

Though TFNationals will remember her most fondly as Arcee, Susan is an accomplished actor with many memorable roles under her belt, including Stormer and Lindsay Pierce from Jem, Galadria from Visionaries, Buttons from My Little Pony and Granny Smurf from The Smurfs! In the world of the Cybertronians her additional roles include Transmutate from Beast Wars and Flareup from Transformers: Animated. If you're made of sterner stuff, you can see her on screen in Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood!

Acting, however, was only the start of Susan's incredibly successful career. Away from the microphone (but not too far away!) she progressed to numerous roles including Voice Director, Dialogue Director and Casting Director on well-known shows such as Extreme Ghostbusters and the 1987 and 2003 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series.

Following her time on the Sunbow produced Transformers cartoon, Susan went on to work as Voice Director on Beast WarsBeast Machines and season one of Transformers: Prime.  She also worked as Casting Director on Transformers: Animated. If you're a Transformers fan, you've almost certainly enjoyed Susan's incredible contributions over several decades.
