Laura Dawn Bailey (born May 28, 1981, in Biloxi, Mississippi) is an American actress, voice actress, ADR director, and line producer. She has provided voices for a number of English language versions of Japanese anime films, television series, as well as video games.
Bailey is best known for her role as Trunks as a child and the second voice of Dende as a child (replacing Ceyli Delgadillo) in the FUNimation dub of Dragon Ball Z. She also voiced Erasa and Marron. For Dragon Ball, she has voice acted for Chi-Chi as a child, Hasky, Ranfan, Fanfan, as well as Akane Kimidori in the Dr. Slump crossover episodes. In Dragon Ball GT, she voiced Oceanus Shenron. While she did not reprise her role of Dende in Dragon Ball Z Kai, she voiced Vegeta as a child and reprise her Role as Kid Trunks in The Final Chapters. She also voiced Suno in the video game Dragon Ball: Revenge of King Piccolo.
