In a career spanning over thirty years, Andrea Romano has directed more than 10,000 voice over sessions on shows including Batman: The Animated Series, Avatar: The Last Airbender, Animaniacs, and Batman Beyond. Just like those shows, all good things must come to an end, as Romano will retire this week.

In a statement, Romano said she planned on working another few years, but she has decided to wrap up her current projects over the last few weeks following her diagnosis of optic neuropathy in one eye, which has caused blindness in that eye.

"I shall miss so many aspects of this industry – particularly the people I've worked alongside, and all the fun that happens on both side of the glass. From the bottom of my heart, I extend my sincere gratitude to every actor, producer, director, engineer and colleague that has helped make this run so incredible," Romano said in a statement.

Getting her directorial debut on Ducktales, her work is spread over 1,600 episodes of 40 TV shows, 50 movies, and 20 video games. Her most recent work includes Voltron: Legendary Defender and Nickelodeon's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Her work has earned Romano 35 Emmy nominations and eight Emmy wins, as well as the Friz Award for Excellence awarded in 2016 at the International Family Film Festival.
