Spotlighting the Power Rangers - Disney Era - Voice Actors (Part 4)

As you can notice, the voice actors had steady jobs in Power Rangers, voicing at least one character per year, when the production moved to New Zealand, everyone was mad. And it was hard to find voice actors in New Zealand. Disney had to get people who were actors but never really did voice acting before. Most of them are known for Xena and Lords of te Rings and other productions filmed in New Zealand. I am only covering the ones that did more than one monster role. The ones who did voices for RPM only did RPM.
