Winx Season 8: Who Are Aisha and Nex’s Voice Actors?
Posted On May 6, 2019
Winx season eight premiered in Russia today. The ending sequence used the English credits, so we now know who voices Aisha and Nex in the 3Beep dub.
Aisha: Elinor Vanderburg
I found a profile for Elinor Vanderburg, and this tidbit got my attention:
She can currently be heard as the voice of Aisha on the animated series, World of Winx, currently on Netflix.
Wait…what? Alysha Deslorieux is credited as Aisha in both seasons of World of Winx, and Elinor Vanderburg is a different person, not an alias. What gives?
A lot of fans said Aisha sounded different in World of Winx season two. Since the credits said Alysha Deslorieux still voiced her, we thought 3Beep just gave her different directions. But what if it was actually Elinor Vanderburg voicing Aisha? That makes a lot more sense!
I couldn’t find any other voice credits for Elinor Vanderburg, so Aisha may be her first role.
Nex: Marc Thompson
Marc Thompson is an experienced voice actor. In Winx Club, he voiced…Knut in the 4Kids dub (maybe in season eight, too) and Brafilius in season seven. Ugh. ?
He also voiced Jim in World of Winx! That’s a relief! ? Let’s hope he plays Nex more like Jim than like Knut or Brafilius.
That’s all for now, folks! I have a beautiful new fan art commission to show you, but I’m waiting until the artist posts it to her DeviantArt gallery. Stay tuned! (UPDATE: Here it is!)
