My full/legal/credit name is Emily Frongillo. It’s a cool name I like — but everyone calls me (and I prefer to be called) Frongi (pronounced like “FRAWN-jee”).
My remote ADR voice work includes roles in both anime and live action titles, among them Yumi Funaberi in Shin Ultraman, Miki in Karate Girl, and bits on Moriarty The Patriot, Legend of the Galactic Heroes: Die Neue These, Kageki Shojo!!, Tribe Nine, Flying Phantom Ship, Love Live Superstar!!, A Couple of Cuckoos, Mieruko-chan, and more. You can also hear me in the opening cutscene and peppered around other dark corners of the viral indie horror game Poppy Playtime, and in a ton of K-8 eLearning material for clients like Curriculum Associates, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, and more.
Ways casting professionals tend to describe my voice and/or roles they’ve cast me in: high-energy, mature, aggressive, tomboy, motherly, grouchy, informative, animated, confident.
I have fourteen years of tap, jazz, and ballet training (tap is my favorite discipline). I have competed on regional and national stages, amassing gold and silver placements for group and solo numbers, and have performed in Disney World.
I have a B.A. in Creative Writing from Suffolk University (2010). While completing that degree, I tutored on scholarship at the school’s Writing Center, briefly worked on staff for its lit magazine, and studied drama.
My VO career began in 2015 after a five-year stint in office work (where I flitted about in roles from desk receptionist to sales account executive). I recorded mainly in the eLearning sphere until 2020, when I moved into animation.
Anime has been an interest and hobby of mine since my early teens. From 2006 – 2018 I regularly attended conventions, sometimes competing in cosplay on stage, sometimes judging the competitions. My favorite genre is giant robots (Code Geass, Gundam, Macross Frontier, TTGL, Full Metal Panic, etc). As for games, the Kingdom Hearts franchise is my favorite.
I have written over 1.2 million words of fan-fiction. I have also completed several original novels; they are, slowly in my free time, at last being queried out to literary agents. I am, in short, always writing and editing fiction.
I have somehow cultivated an exponentially-skyrocketing obsession with Sherlock Holmes.
My ethnicity is Italian, English, and Dutch. I am LGBTQ+. I like flowers, tea, antiques, cities, books, history, and cooking.
“We first came across Frongi in 2016 when she was chosen to read for a K-2 Vocabulary project. With all we might have learned if we’d taken the course there would still be no words adequate to describe the great talent and wonderful personality of this incredible person. We know we can rely on her and on her word(s) and always will count on her accuracy and flexibility!”– Steve Olenick, President at AudioLink
