Catherine Taber is an American actress. She is known for voicing Padmé Amidala in Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Lori Loud on The Loud House.


In 2000, the Georgia native made her feature film debut starring alongside Soleil Moon Frye and Wil Wheaton in the coming of age dramedy The Girls' Room, where she and Frye play college roommates with contrasting lifestyles.

Taber got her break into video game voice-overs in Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic in 2003, where she played Mission Vao. She voiced Penelo in Final Fantasy XII, for which she was nominated for a National Academy of Video Game Trade Reviewers (NAVGTR) Award for Supporting Role in a Drama in 2006.

She was the voice of Padmé Amidala in the Star Wars: The Clone Wars animated film and television series that aired on Cartoon Network from 2008 to 2014. Although she auditioned for the part, she credits her video game roles in the Star Wars universe as helping her become a fan and landing the part. She also voiced Amidala in the related Star Wars video games, as well as the character Vette in Star Wars: The Old Republic. She voiced Princess Leia in the Star Wars: Force Unleashed video games, and provided voices during production of the now cancelled animated comedy series Star Wars Detours. Meanwhile, in live-action roles, she had a starring role in the horror movie The Morningside Monster which screened at the Phoenix Film Festival in April 2014.

Outside of science fiction films and games, she voiced Ginger the Pig in A Pig's Tail, an animated 2012 short film made by Aardman Animations for The Humane Society. She also runs a charity website called Games for Soldiers where she collects video game donations for U.S. soldiers overseas.

Beginning in 2016, Taber has provided voice work on Nickelodeon's The Loud House, voicing Lori Loud, Katherine Mulligan, Girl Jordan, and other characters.

Taber also voiced female Jesse in both seasons of the video game Minecraft: Story Mode (2015–17), which was first released by Telltale Games on October 12, 2015.

In 2021, Taber reprised her role as Katherine Mulligan from The Loud House in the live-action film A Loud House Christmas.
