Over the past three years, I’ve encountered some truly remarkable voiceover actors from the PGM (People Of Global Majority) community, so remarkable that I thought it would be a worthwhile endeavor to dedicate an article about themselves, their accomplishments, and where you can find them and do so every week. When will this end? Most likely never so as I cackle at the infinite posts this may generate, I am so very happy to tell you all that my spotlight for this week is on Krizia Bajos!
Krizia Bajos is a bilingual Cuban American multi-threat actor, working in film and television on-camera and more widely known for her ability to bring characters to life through her notable voice acting talent in animation and video games.
In addition to acting, Krizia is a dialogue director for games and founder/creator of Voiceover Camp — an online platform teaching VO — both endeavors with the goal of helping people discover their own voice acting talents and abilities. She is also part of What The Vox, a collective of accomplished female voice actors coming together to impact change within the voice over industry.
Krizia is best known for her roles as Margarita in The Loud House and The Casagrandes, the voice of the Sims in The Sims 4, Akali in League of Legends, Sasquatch & Mama Wells in Cyberpunk 2077, Operator Karla Rivas in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, Camila Vazquez in Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Renee Montoya in Batman: The Telltale Series, Gabby in The Walking Dead: Michonne, Mother & Lupe Peligro in Carmen Sandiego, and Igrene & Altina in Fire Emblem Heroes, among other roles.
Other notable credits include roles in: Wasteland 3, Tell Me Why, Legends of Runeterra, The Last of Us: Part II, Spies in Disguise, Remnant: From the Ashes, Eliza, Just Cause 4, Fallout 76, Fallout 4, Halo 4 & 5, Lego Dimensions, Grand Theft Auto V, and upcoming titles: Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2, Star Trek Endeavor, Suicide Squad, Marvel Avengers, Far Cry 6, Halo 6, and co-leading Call of Osiris with legendary VA Troy Baker, plus more.
Born and raised in Miami to Cuban parents, Krizia now calls Los Angeles home but still keeps true to her Caribbean heritage through cooking food from her motherland and dancing to the Cuban greats, as well as bringing Hispanic and Latin representation to the world of animation and video games. Krizia was nominated for Best Vocal Ensemble in a Video Game for her role in Batman: The Telltale Series at the BTVA Video Game Voice Acting Awards.
