Susan Roman provided the voice of Sailor Jupiter for the entire first dub of the series.

It’s a nice location though it is far from the strip. Those who are considering traveling for this convention will probably want to set an evening aside to take a cab to the Las Vegas strip to see the city in all of its glory.
The following weekend, June 27th and 28th, Linda Ballantyne, Katie Griffin and Toby Proctor will be at OZ Comic-Con Melbourne.

Amongst other events the convention will feature a live script reading of a Sailor Moon script with the two of them voicing their characters. I wonder what script they are planning to use, as the two have never appeared in the same episode together.
Linda Ballantyne is the third voice of Sailor Moon, voicing the character for the 3rd and 4th seasons, Sailor Moon S and SuperS. During these episodes the voice of Tuxedo Mask was provided by Vince Corazza. Toby Proctor is the second voice of Tuxedo Mask, taking over after Rino Romano voiced him for only a few episodes, covering most of the first two seasons, Sailor Moon and Sailor Moon R. Toby Proctor’s Tuxedo Mask acted opposite Terri Hawkes, who was herself the second voice of Sailor Moon.

Jennifer Cihi is often referred to as the singing voice of Sailor Moon as she is credited as Sailor Moon, Princess Serena and Sailor Mars on tracks of the Sailor Moon: Songs From the Hit TV Series and Lunarock albums. Though Sailor Moon never actually sang in the English dub many of the songs she provided the voice for had a narrative that presented them as the voice of Sailor Moon. During the original 65 dubbed episodes she sang “I Wanna Be A Star!” from the episode “So You Want to Be a Superstar”, “My Only Love” from when Princess Serena is revealed in “A Crystal Clear Destiny”, “Carry On” which plays during the fight with Beryl and “It’s A New Day” which plays when Serena wakes up after that same fight in “Day of Destiny” and “Call My Name” which is sung by Raye at the Autumn festival during “Raye’s Day in the Spotlight”. Jennifer Cihi returned to sing on the second soundtrack, providing the vocals for “The Power of Love” which played during the battle with Wiseman in “Final Battle”, “I Want Someone to Love”, “I Want to Hold Your Hand” and “Who Do You Think You Are?”.
