Kelly Sheridan (born May 19, 1977 in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada) is a Canadian voice actress based in Vancouver, British Columbia. She has provided numerous voices for cartoons and Japanese anime series. She is best known for being the voice for Barbie in the majority of the computer-generated Barbie film series since 2001. She also voiced Sango in the English dub of the anime series InuYasha, Diana Lombard in the Martin Mystery series, and Theresa in Class of the Titans. She has been a member of Genus Theatre Company since August 2005.


Sheridan grew up in Vancouver and studied at the Vancouver Youth Theatre.[4] She attended Simon Fraser University and received a degree in theatre in 2001.[2]

Before Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Destiny came out in English, on many of the anime websites, Sheridan had mistakenly received credit for Stella Loussier's English voice. She was initially succeeded as the voice of Barbie by Diana Kaarina in 2010, beginning with Barbie: A Fashion Fairy Tale, but later returned to the role in 2012 in Barbie in A Mermaid Tale 2. Ever since, Sheridan has returned to voicing Barbie, and has recently voiced Mariposa and Barbie in the movies Barbie: Mariposa & the Fairy Princess, and Barbie & Her Sisters in A Pony Tale.
