Kayzie Rogers (born 1974) (also credited as Katherine Freeman or Jamie Peacock) is a retired American voice actress. She is best known for her work in animated television series.
Kayzie's most famous roles are the more than 50 she has voiced for Pokémon. She had been a part of the show since its inception. Other notable portrayals are Pie Tin, in Fighting Foodons; Tuff, in Kirby: Right Back at Ya!; Doozle, in Tama And Friends; Koby, in One Piece; and Sara Ringwalt in Now and Then, Here and There. Rogers also appeared as the voice of Chicky, the Kid Chicken for KFC; a talking teddy bear for FAO Schwarz, and as a bungee-jumping gum pellet for Trident White.
Kayzie says she has been "doing funny voices" for as long as she "can remember". She caught the acting bug early on, relishing her performances in school plays from kindergarten through college. Rogers's first media job was as an NBC page in Rockefeller Center. She then moved on to a successful graphic arts career, but her dream of working as a professional actor remained a constant.
With the help of vocal coach, Maddie Blaustein, Kayzie made her first cartoon-voice demo and was almost immediately discovered. She was cast as a bratty little kid in a tolerance PSA (Public service announcement). It was produced by cartoonist, animator, writer and businessman Joe Young (Scruples), starred Richie Havens and featured music by Stevie Wonder. Her first TV series was Nickelodeon's U2U. Kayzie played "all the high pitched voices for the cartoons" (Jerry Lobozzo voiced all the deep ones).
Kayzie Rogers is best known for her inventive and wacky portrayals as well as her wide vocal and emotional range. In addition to voice acting, Kayzie teaches workshops and performs for charities.
Rogers is best known for her extensive voice work in the Pokémon anime franchise. She has also voiced many characters of the day; her most notable role in the franchise is Jessie's Wobbuffet, a role that she had voiced for 16 years, from 2001 to 2017.
Rogers retired from acting in 2017. Her role of Wobbuffet is subsequently replaced by Erica Schroeder.
