Information

Early life

Grey DeLisle-Griffin was born Erin Grey Van Oosbree in Fort Ord, California. Her childhood was difficult; her mother was a singer and musician who suffered from alcoholism and drug addiction and her father was a truck driver with a passion for country music. Her parents divorced when she was young. She was primarily raised by her grandmother, Eva Flores Ruth, a vocalist who performed with salsa legend Tito Puente. DeLisle was heavily into goth bands like The Cure, but her mother, who had become a born-again Pentecostal, set a strict rule forbidding secular music. Her records that contain Goth music or heavy metal were burned. She was forbidden to wear pants and makeup. At the age of 17, she rebelled against the Pentecostal church. In her late teens, she started singing old gospel tunes, and entered the world of stand-up comedy on the advice of a close friend. In her comedy routine, DeLisle imitated voices very well, and was advised to take a shot at voice acting.

DeLisle plays a leading role in at least six current animated series. Harp has called DeLisle "golden-voiced" and recognized her for her roles in The Fairly Oddparents as well as Clifford the Big Red Dog and its prequel, Clifford's Puppy Days.

As a television voice actress, she portrays the Dark Jedi, Asajj Ventress, in 5 episodes of Star Wars: Clone Wars and reprises her role as Ventress in a bonus level in the Force Duel mode of the PSP version of the video game Star Wars: The Force Unleashed. She also portrays Azula on Avatar: The Last Airbender, Riley Daring on The Replacements, several voice roles (though mainly Mandy) on The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy, Therese and Jeanette (Tourette) Voerman in the White Wolf RPG PC game Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines, Frida Suárez in El Tigre: The Adventures of Manny Rivera, Sam Manson in Danny Phantom, as well as Vicky and her sister Tootie in The Fairly OddParents and also in W.I.T.C.H as Miranda.
