Kaiji Tang is a Chinese and American voice actor and screen actor working primarily out of Los Angeles.

Tang comes from a theatrical background and moved to Los Angeles to do commercial work. He starred in commercials for Garmin GPS and The Discovery Channel among others during that time. After appearing in a cult-classic movie called Zombie Strippers, he auditioned for a podcast for a dubbing studio and was eventually hired. Ever since that he has found success in finding roles for characters. Tang has stated that he never set out to do voice work and it all came later on in his life.[1] Tang enjoys his profession and likes contributing to the video game industry as he compares video games to novels.[2] Tang hosts the YouTube channel Voices of Gaming.[3]

Some of his more notable roles include Owain/Odin in Fire Emblem Awakening & Fates, Sima Zhao in Dynasty Warriors 7 & 8, Wingul in Tales of Xillia, and Violet in Tekken Tag Tournament 2.[4]
