What was the real reason behind Stephanie Nadolny Leaving (Fired) from Funimation?



  • Ok so I believe there is alway 3 Side to story… 1. Stephanie Nadolny Side, 2. Christopher Sabat Side and 3. The Truth Side

    We have got a story that "She left for Creative Decisions under the Kid Goku/ Kid and Teen Gohan character" But that really need call in to question I thing... I don't fill either Stephanie or Christopher state anything about it... I hope 1 day we can find out what happen... What do you guy thing?



  • I hope one day your signature gets even larger. It really needs to fill the whole screen.



  • Wait there's been an issue about this? Does it matter? Like if anything I just sort of assumed that she moved away or wanted to stray away from doing Dragon Ball characters all the time, because let's face it there's a LOT of demand when you're a DBZ actor/actress. Lots of videogames man. Either way, I don't believe that she was fired or anything but more likely she just wanted to pursue other things. Then again I could be wrong but it seems strange to assume this.



  • well she couldn't have been fired, she doesn't actually work for funimation. voice actors are freelance, and thus not on the payroll



  • I'm more curious about what translation software the OP uses because it can lead to some major miscommunication. And the sig that doug points out and I can't help but agree with doug.

    No it is factly known that Chris and Stephanie had a FALLOUT… According to Stephanie she said she no issues with travel issues there was clearing falling out with her and Chris and Chris is the director now...

    Do you have a link to any evidence that can back your claims up?

    Not saying you're wrong, but it would help for you to provide some sort of proof.

    Well most links are just other forums like this… But I talk to people who know Chris and talk to him and there was a falling out...

    So you literally have nothing, got it.

    You're basically just going off of rumored speculation and word of mouth, which when you're trying to figure something out is basically nothing. Besides, it seems in general Stephanie hasn't really done any real work lately, with the exception of the cartoon pilot Lakewood Plaza Turbo, which I am pretty sure was a requested casting choice by creator Ian Jones-Quartey as he's a huge anime fan (he's also been the executive producer for the first 2 seasons of Steven Universe).

    Basically whether there's a story here or not, she simply hasn't done much work lately, which could change soon as Lakewood Plaza Turbo HAS been picked up for a full series and is in pre-production now. Regardless, if there IS a story between Chris and Stephanie, it really doesn't matter much anymore. Her roles have since been recast by Colleen, and whether you are happy or upset with the change is ultimately pointless. It's done, and really I don't particularly care about the behind the scenes drama anyways. Not sure why you do honestly, or if knowing would even really change anything.

    And she said state she wanted to stay on… So no your wrong on that... She does not work for Funimation anymore... And yes Colleen screw Kid Gohan, Kid Goku, Luffy, and 18 (Kai Dub)...

    @SpacemanHardy She was fire for a DUI. Omg really??? http://www.kanzenshuu.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=34409&start=80



  • the comment said it was a factor, but not the only reason. regardless, this thread is two years old, and no longer relevant. doesn't matter any more

    It madder to me! And I wanted know what the reason was.



  • Personally I'd rather not know the history of that kind of stuff, but it is certainly possible that they just had some creative falling outs, and that DUI probably certainly didn't help the matter. Regardless, it's something. Still speculative, but something.

    Also, you might like to know that while she's not currently doing Dragonball / Funi dubs anymore, she's actually found some work on a brand new show coming to Cartoon Network in the summer, OK KO: Let's Be Heroes.

    I definitely recommend checking that out. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0qiP5fqqiMQ

    Funny you mention that I actually just found out about that yesterday when I actually was researching this topic at hand and actually watch an interview of her talking it. But I actually seen a mug shot though I don't know if it's actually her or a Photoshop picture of her because I haven't been able to find it anywhere else because someone on YouTube showed a video of a picture of her with the mug shot. Like I said I think it's bull crap that she was the only one that basically was cast aside really for no reason even with the DUI that's not the worst charge in the world in terms of being arrested multiple people get DUIs and don't get fired after their first offense.



  • Right so that means it was something bigger than a DUI which prevented sabat from inviting her back. Likely a personal matter that we dont need to know about.

    @Getchman DUI don't talk long to get out off... And it mostly was her 1st time... She should not have been punch for that... There are people who have done MUCH worst and have not got fire...



  • This is all just gossip. You need a hobby.



  • @Haildodger said in What was the real reason behind Stephanie Nadolny Leaving (Fired) from Funimation?:

    gossip

    @Getchman Well there no 1 from both side stated anything... And there mugshot of her...

    Edit it I just find it http://mugshots.com/US-Counties/Texas/Denton-County-TX/Stephanie-Ann-Nadolny.21887442.html

    Though it said it was in 2000...



  • @gohan6425 I'm not implying it may not be true. I'm just saying who cares. It's someone's personal life. Let them deal with it, and keep your nose out of it. You have no idea what was really going on behind the scenes on either side. I'm sure you can find more productive things to do with your time. ~.^

    @Haildodger See I don't see it that way the DBZ fans deserved closer to why she was the ONLY one that really was not welcome back... Hell everyone was welcome back other then her... Even the ones who did not end up coming back like Linda Young was still welcome back to be Frieza she could have been the voice but she could not do it anymore as Frieza voice with her vocal issue... We deserved to know what happen...
