Meet Ashley – The Voice Behind Sarah Steele!

A while ago, one of our fantastic Pirate101 players and KingsIsle blog reader left this comment on the blog:

My little sister and I play all the time and we are from Wales. We have always wondered if the actress that voices Sarah Steele is from Wales too? We love her accent as it is close to ours. Ours is like a cross between hers and Bonnie Annes but more Sarahs.

We do our best to answer any questions you guys post to us, and when Ashley Spillers, the voice of Sarah Steele, was in the KingsIsle offices recently to do some recording we had a chance to ask her these questions!  Here’s what Ashley had to say:

Hello there, Greetings from Los Angeles, California!

Thank you so much for your sweet note all the way from Wales! I would be very happy to answer the questions you sent for you and your sister.

My name is Ashley Spillers and I am the voice of Sarah Steele – I am so happy that you enjoy her! I have a blast playing her so I am happy to know you’ve found a friend in her. Regarding your questions: I am in fact not from Wales, but actually from Texas! I am so glad to hear that Sarah’s accent sounds somewhat authentic; as I am always concerned it’s not!

I am now living in Los Angeles, California pursuing my acting career, where I get to work on film, and voiceover work! I love theater as well.

I came into voice acting via theater and film acting! I have always been told I have a “funny” voice, so now I can finally put it to good use! It’s not always easy to land jobs, but I just continue to audition and record just like all the other actors, and hope someone chooses me.

Thank you again for your interest in my work and Sarah Steele! I wish you the very best and hope you continue to find lots of joy with Sarah and all the other wonderful characters in the game.

Cheers! and be well,
love Ashley Spillers
– and may you always find joy in whatever you do – and don’t give up on your dreams!

Here's a photo of me waving to you from LA! :)

    Awesome job, Ashley! I’ve always loved Sarah Steele’s voice and I even bought Lucy Sterling for my Witchdoctor because she reminded me of her! Good luck with your acting job and keep up the great work!

      sarah steel was very strong when i first got her but the question is
      how do i get more companions?

    • xavier ankeny / Dec 8 2013 12:06 pm

    • marisa / Dec 9 2013 6:05 am

      how do I get sarah steel?

  3. lachy vb / Nov 23 2013 9:35 pm

    what made you come up with Sarah steel?

    Sarah Steele has a pretty good imitation of the welsh accent, but i must say that Bonnie Anne’s Scottish accent is a total fake. I could tell from the first time i heard. Another thing is I’d like to hear a Kiwi accent in Pirate101 (New Zealand accent).

    • Alhazred / Dec 4 2013 7:23 pm

      The woman who does the voice for Bonnie Anne was born and raised in Aberdeen, Scotland.

    I love wizard and pirate101! I just started playing pirate101, but I am level 43 (almost 44) and my name is Isabella Startalon. Wizard101 has given me an opportinity to express myself, without saying who I really am. Most of my friends don’t play wizard101 or pirate101, but I know I’ve made new friends by playing them.
    Thank you Kingsisle!
