Meet the Original “Nova” Amy Howard Wilson

Meet the Original “Nova” Amy Howard Wilson


Born in Detroit on May 28, 1955, Amy was “bit by the acting bug” in high school. She is a proud graduate of The American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York City – Class of ’75.

In 1979, Amy was working in the front office of the Weist-Barron School for TV and Commercial Acting. Kit Carter, the casting director, called the
school looking for non-union talent to do the English dub for a new Japanese animated series, which would eventually come to be known as Star
. She had the honor of being cast as the voice of Nova (Mori Yuki) for Season 1 – The Quest for Iscandar and Season 2 – The Comet

In 1999, she met one such longtime fan, Jeff Thompson, who very kindly asked her to dub the voice of Miranda in The Rules of Being 16 episode of The Irresponsible Captain Tylor OVA for RightStuf, International.

In 1998, at Anime Weekend Atlanta, Amy met the man who would become her husband, David G. Wilson, III (Dave III to his friends!). They were
married in Atlanta on October 14, 2000 and now share a beautiful home in Virginia with 5 fabulous felines.

Since 2002, Amy has been recording and producing audio books. Ask her about her company – Studio V.O.I.C.E., and please visit her website -
