Janice Kawaye, born Hiromi Kawaye (of which she has also been credited) in 1970, is an Japanese-born American actress notable for providing the voices of "Jenny" XJ-9 Wakeman on My Life as a Teenage Robot, Ami on Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi, as well as Gi on Captain Planet and the Planeteers. This fall, she will be one of the lead voices on the new Cartoon Network animated series Class of 3000, created by Andre Benjamin of the musical group OutKast.
She made her acting debut in the 1984 movie Night of the Comet, and speaks fluant Japanese as demonstrated in the MLAATR episode "Speak No Evil" and through the Puffy AmiYumi series, where she and fellow cast member Keone Young (who voices Kaz) taught Grey DeLisle (Yumi's voice) to speak Japanese. It was also in that series (during the show's second season) where she voiced a character that was personally based on her in the episode "Janice Jealous", but the show's producers (Renegade Animation) have stated that the real Kawaye is much nicer than the character she portrayed.
