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!
