Courtenay Dennis (born July 19, 1969) (better known as Courtenay Taylor and sometimes credited as Courtenay Kellen Taylor and Courtnay Taylor) is an American voice actress for Regular Show. She provides the voices of Starla, Audrey and others.
Courtenay Dennis was born in San Francisco, California and spent time in Texas, Australia and England. She attended the American Conservatory Theater, majoring in theatre and had an acting class as an elective. While in college she became overweight, so she started exercising and trained in full contact boxing and kickboxing. She eventually taught in fitness classes and managed a boxing gym in San Francisco. She also taught a boxing class at Lucas Arts for their staff on Wednesday afternoons, returning to work for them on Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic. Another gym was going to be opened in a different location, which she did not want to travel to. Her boss recommended she move to Los Angeles and start acting and doing standup. After moving there she waited tables while starting her voice acting career in commercials. She also attended a voice acting class to hone her skills.
Her first video game she voice acted in was Star Trek: Starfleet Command III. She has provided the voices for such characters as Juhani in Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic and Jack in Mass Effect 2. Taylor's favorite role she's played is Jack from Mass Effect. Her voice acting agency is AVO Talent. When not acting, she helps produce and film live projects, and is CEO of her own company that is named after her.
When asked how she created the voice of Starla, Taylor explained: "I read for Starla and another smaller character. I wanted to do an annoying, Harvey Fierstein kind of voice. Nobody would want to hear this [voice] for any length of time. I made the cashier [sound] like that.” As it turns out, her voice for the cashier was exactly what the crew wanted, not the original one she had performed for Starla. At first Taylor did not understand, but after hearing how Muscle Man sounded, the show's entire aural aesthetic clicked for her.
