Meredith McCoy (Born August 11, 1980 in Fort Worth, Texas) is a Texas-based voice actress and singer who primarily works on the properties of Funimation. Meredith has done national commercials for Radio Shack, AT&T, 7-Eleven, and Chevrolet. Her father Jaan McCoy has been a disc jockey for 35 years. Meredith is the oldest of six kids, she has two whole brothers, Andy Thompson and Paul Thompson, and three half siblings, Isaac Kalmes, Caroline Kalmes, and Elizabeth Kalmes. Meredith has been singing professionally since the age of seventeen. She has sung with the Cary Richards orchestra, traveled all over the U.S. with Vince Vance and the Valiants, and has performed with Ricky Derek's Night 'Oh' Cabaret. She is currently performing with CornerPocket, a local six-piece jazz/swing band based in Dallas, Texas, who will soon release their second album.
Meredith is also a key player in Radio Shack Corporation's training and recruiting videos since 2001. She appears currently in over 55 of the company's on-demand training videos on Radio Shack's internal training library available to its employees; titled RTV. In these videos she portrays a "store associate" herself, always doing the "right things" and giving positive attitude and motivation towards her "customers". She can also be seen in older editions of "Radio Shack TV" DVDs which are looped on LCD TV screens in over 4,000 stores in the United States, Canada, and Puerto Rico. These segments are filmed inside of a "full scale" model store located inside of Radio Shack's Company Headquarters in her hometown of Ft. Worth, Texas. In such videos she also goes by the name Meredith.
Keeping in theme with her "electronics retail" acting career, Meredith also hosts several in-store television segments for GameStop, Electronics Boutique, and EB Games stores across the United States that are run in continuous loops daily. Appearing in a more sexed-up and "current" image instead of the toned down RadioShack associate, she explains the features, benefits, and storylines of new games released on the market. Her latest in-store television segment aired in July of 2007.
Meredith was also featured in the award winning Kenny Chesney Video "There Goes My Life", which won CMT's Flame Worthy Male Video of the Year for 2004. Many anime fans will no doubt know her as the singer of the English version theme song for Fruits Basket. She is also very well known for her roles as Lieutenant Maria Ross on Fullmetal Alchemist and as Android 18 on Dragonball Z. Her newest project, a Christian rock album entitled "Releasing Angels," with songs about freeing yourself from addiction to drugs, sexual impurity and "the lie of evolution" will soon be available on her myspace.
