Masako Nozawa (野沢 雅子 Nozawa Masako?, born Masako Tsukada (塚田 雅子 Tsukada Masako?) on October 25, 1936 in the Tokyo Metropolitan area, Japan) is a Japanese voice actress and actress affiliated with (and the chairman of) Office Nozawa. Her pet name is Mako. Her husband, Masa'aki Tsukada is also a voice actor.

As a voice actress, she is most known for the role of Goku in the original Japanese version of the popular anime franchise Dragon Ball, both as a child and an adult, as well as Tetsuro Hoshino (Galaxy Express 999) and Kitaro (GeGeGe no Kitaro, first and second series). She has also voiced two separate characters named "Hiroshi", a character in Dokonjō Gaeru, and the character known in the U.S. as "Pidge" in Hyakujūō Golion (the "Lion Force" arc of Voltron).

Career

Nozawa made her movie debut as a child actor at the age of 2.

Throughout her career as a voice actress, she has performed many male roles (most notably as all the male members of Goku's family in Dragon Ball Z, except for Raditz), leading Japanese fans to give her the nickname "The Eternal Boy". These days, however, she prefers the roles of elderly woman characters, although she continues to perform other roles (including young boys) occasionally.

On April 1, 2006, she resigned from 81 Produce to establish Office Nozawa.
