Completing this mini-series of ‘Who voices…. in Spy x Family?‘ is the third and final one — Who voices Yor Forger in Spy x Family.

After all, when it comes to this already hit anime series, the three main characters — Loid, Anya and Yor — are the ones most people are interested in, right?

Especially as all three are so beautifully created by the actors who provide their voices.

If you have read my other two articles, you already know about the voice actors playing Loid and Anya:

Loid’s fabulous voice actor Takuya Eguchi and Atsumi Tanezaki the actress who creates the wonderfully quirky Anya so beautifully.

So now you know who voices Yor Forger in Spy x Family. A superb performance you can hear just some of in the Spy x Family trailer below.

And what I love about the choice of Saori Hayami for the role of Yor is that producers could have gone with someone who would play her in a sexy more mature and quite dangerous way.

But, instead, they went for someone who speaks with such a sweet and gentle voice, and that works so darned perfectly.
