Ashly Burch (born June 19, 1990) is an American actress, voice actress,[1][2][3] singer, and writer.[4][5] Burch is known for her role as the voice of Tiny Tina in the video game Borderlands 2,[6] the web series Hey Ash, Whatcha Playin'?, Aloy in the video game Horizon Zero Dawn, Mayuri Shiina from Steins;Gate and Sasha Braus from Attack on Titan.

She was a storyline writer on the Cartoon Network series Adventure Time[7][8] and voiced Chloe Price in the video game Life Is Strange, for which she won the Golden Joystick Award for Best Performance.[9] She is also the host of Geek & Sundry's Unplugged series.[10]

Early Life[edit]

Burch credits her career path as a voice actress on playing Metal Gear Solid at age 12 and seeing voice actor David Hayter's name alongside that of the main characters. After googling his name, she made the realization that there were actual people who voiced the characters and she realized that was what she wanted to do as a career.[11]


After starting Hey Ash, Whatcha Playin'?, Burch got her first voice acting role after her brother, Anthony Burch, was hired as a writer for Borderlands 2, and he suggested she try out for the role of Tiny Tina.[11]
