Tara Strong

Tara Lyn (Charendoff) Strong (b. Feb. 12, 1973) is a Canadian-American actress who has been active since 1986, and has acted in many animated and live-action productions in both the television and film industries. Notable examples include Timmy Turner from The Fairly OddParents!, Raven in the Teen Titans TV series and its spinoff Teen Titans Go!, Twilight Sparkle from My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic, and Rikku from Final Fantasy X.

Tara Strong's only credited Mario-relevant role is providing the voice for Hop Koopa in The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3 and Super Mario World animated series, and is commonly thought to have also voiced Hip Koopa (who was actually voiced by Stuart Stone). However, her official website once said that she was also the uncredited voice to Bowser Jr. in Super Mario Sunshine,[1] but this detail was removed, as in the credits to the game, the character's voice is credited to Dolores Rogers, who voiced him in various later games. She also made a Vine where she met Charles Martinet, the current voice actor for Mario and Luigi.
