Stephanie Ru-Phan Sheh (born April 10, 1977) is an American actress, voice actress, and sound engineer. She has worked for several major companies, including Cartoon Network and Sony.

Sheh is often involved with doing voice over work in anime, original animation, videogames, dubbing, commercials, and TV shows.


She became interested in being an actor when she was in her early years in Monta Vista High School. After graduating from UCLA, she took a job as a producer to pay the bills while she pursued her acting career.

Voice acting[edit]

Stephanie has recorded radio spots for United States Cellular Corporation and was recorded an episode of Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated, which she voiced Mai Le. Even though she got her star in doing voice-over for anime, she can still be heard in many video games like Bioshock 2, Aion: The Tower of Eternity, True Crime: New York City, Devil May Cry 4, and Resident Evil 5 as the current voice of Rebecca Chambers on the Resident Evil franchise. Beyond using her voice, Stephanie was flown by plane to Japan to voice and motion capture the role of Cereza in Sega's video game Bayonetta.

She got her training and studying on acting, voice acting, and improvisation in Second City Training Center, East West Players, Susan Blu Voiceover Workshop and UCLA School of Theater, Film and Television.

Some of her notable protagonist roles in her voice-over work in anime are Orihime Inoue in Bleach, Himeko Kurusugawa in Kannazuki no Miko, and Eureka in Eureka Seven. She has announced[when?] that she will reprise the role of Eureka in another sequel called Eureka Seven: Astral Ocean.

Sheh has had protagonist voice-over roles in several video games, including Finnel in Ar tonelico Qoga: Knell of Ar Ciel, Cereza in Bayonetta, Mlle Blanche de Grace in Bioshock 2 and Orihime Inoue in the Bleach (series)

She's the voice of Jinafire Long in Monster High and Duchess Swan in Ever After High.

She is fluent in English and Mandarin Chinese.

Sheh has appeared several times on G4's Attack of the Show! as "Tiny Olivia Munn". In 2012, she was a host in the 2011 Talk-Show TV series BPM: Beats Per Mnet.
