Not to be confused with Amanda Lee.


Amanda Beth Winn Lee (born November 14, 1972) is an American semi-retired voice actress, ADR director and script writer who works mainly on anime dubs. She was the voice of Mimiru in .hack//SIGN, Rally Vincent in Gunsmith Cats, Yohko Mano in Devil Hunter Yohko, Momiji Fujimiya in Blue Seed and was featured most notably as Rei Ayanami in Neon Genesis Evangelion. Aside from voice work she quite often handles production, ADR direction and the scripting of various projects for her dubbing company Gaijin Productions, LLC. She has also been credited as Amanda Winn, before she was married to voice actor Jason C. Lee.

Career

Winn-Lee served as ADR director, script writer and producer for the English versions of Neon Genesis Evangelion: The End of Evangelion and Neon Genesis Evangelion: Death & Rebirth. She also directed and performed leading roles in the English versions of Dead Leaves and the Read or Die OVA.

She had been working with ADV Films for years before she moved out to Los Angeles to create Gaijin Productions. Expanding on her anime work, Winn-Lee also provided the voice of Konoko, the protagonist of the Bungie video game Oni.

It was suggested by Spike Spencer (her friend as well as fellow voice actor) at Nan Desu Kan 2007 that she was interested in reprising her role(s) in the upcoming Rebuild of Evangelion films. However, in May 2009, North American anime distributor FUNimation Entertainment announced that the role of Rei for the first film Evangelion 1.11 You Are (Not) Alone would be voiced by Brina Palencia, who was under contract to voice Rei Ayanami for the three remaining films. Ironically, in 2021 Khara, Inc. comissioned the Dubbing Brothers studio to create new English dubs for the Rebuild of Evangelion films for Amazon Prime, where Amanda would reprise her role as Rei.

Personal Life

Amanda and Jaxon Lee's son, Nicholas "Noodle" Lee, was born in November 2004. Her son was soon discovered to have infant leukemia, requiring extensive treatment before he was one year old. Amanda and Jason were not involved in any new projects for several years, because they were caring for their son. However, by November 2008, Nicholas has been cancer-free for three years, which is the benchmark for doctors that his odds of cancer recurrence are virtually non-existent. She wrote a book about these experiences in a memoir called The Noodle Chronicles: Everything I know About Cheating Death I Learned From My Kid, which was released as an e-book.
