Actress denotes someone who is female; while, actor denotes someone who is male. If you prefer not to get into the gender identity game - then simply use "voice artist."

actor is gender-neutral.


1
A person whose profession is acting on the stage, in films, or on television.
....
Although there is still an awards category at the Oscars called Best Actress, some people are again using the gender-neutral term actor for both sexes.
