****No, the original English voice actor for Ash Ketchum, Veronica Taylor did not die. In 2008 when the 4Kids contract expired they cut all ties with the actors before the 10th Anniversary special and hired new voice actors to save money. Sarah Natochenny is now the voice actor for Ash. But in the hearts of every kid who grew up in the 1990's... Veronica will ALWAYS be the one and only Ash Ketchum. Long time fans of the show have many petitions to bring Veronica back as Ash. Whoever is in charge isn't listening.

I don't think the original voice actress (yes, it was a girl who dubbed Ketchum's voice) died, but perhaps quit or something (don't quote me on that). Instead, another woman took over; I'm not quite sure of her name, but I think it is Veronica.

In my opinion, I think they wanted a deeper voice for Ash to show his maturity throughout the series (that's what it seemed like to me).

*****Noooooooo!!! that's all wrong veronica Taylor is ashes original voice Sarah natochenny is the new voice character they changed all the voices not because Veronica died but because of some money problem im pretty sure. She just switched to annother show (dinosaur king) and so id Jesse in that show. and all the voice characters are gone in Pokemon there all different

****Actually 4kids contract expired in 2008 and the rights to Pokemon went to PUSA in season 9. Since all the voice actors had contracts at 4kids, PUSA had to find new voice actors for all the characters.
