McLain is the only person to have her voice in all the games in the Orange Box. McLain sang the ending credits song to Portal, “Still Alive” and Portal 2, “Want You Gone”, both written by Jonathan Coulton. She also sang the opera-style turret song featured at the end of Portal 2, referred to by fans as the Turret Opera.

Wendee Lee is an American voice actress. While she has done voice work for many video games as well as several episodes in the Power Rangers franchise, she is particularly prolific in the dubbing of anime. As of April 2009, with 223 credits to her name, she has more credits in this medium than any other English voice-over actor. According to her interview on the Magic Knight Rayearth DVDs, she started doing voices at school, and got in trouble for it. Lee is also experienced in ADR directing. Currently, both she and Kirk Thornton are directing the ADR process for Bleach. Her noted roles include Faye Valentine on Cowboy Bebop, Takeru "T.K." Takaishi on Digimon Adventure, Haruhi Suzumiya on The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya and Konata Izumi on Lucky Star.

Ms. Breeden has been updating her comic daily since 2001 with over 3,000 comic strips online and five graphic novels that are in comic shops and book stores around the world. Via the comic she documents her adventures at comic conventions and in life. From pirates to taxes, kilt blowing to real estate and knitting to romance, life always seems to have something new in store: sometimes to the chagrin of Jennie, but always to the delight of her fans.
