Voice actor Erin Fitzgerald revealed that she retired from the role of Guilty Gear Strive, dubbing the black role Ramlethal, so that black actresses can express the role more appropriately .in a tweet, Fitzgerald said that she was “very happy to leave like this [the developers] Can be delivered more appropriately”. She expanded on this in response to the commenter who originally commented, brief introduction“The role is black, I am not black. I support doing more work for black actresses behind the microphone.” Obviously, Fitzgerald’s resignation was to increase the opportunities and representation of black voice actors.
This gesture seems to be very successful, because the voice actor Laura Stahl (Laura Stahl) has now played the role.Starr responded to Fitzgerald in 2006 Another tweetThanks for her resignation, “Before I accept the role of Ramlethal, I ask for clarification. Not only do I deeply respect Erin as an actor, but I am also an awesome person. Thank you Your grace. You are amazing.” Since Fitzgerald was launched in Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN- in 2014, he has played the role of Ramlethal. Painting has long been a problem in animation and video game dubbing because it means that the few voice actors who are already at a disadvantage in auditioning and applying for roles have fewer opportunities.

Last year, after the “Black Lives Matter” protests, the Simpsons also reshaped voice actors for black roles.
