Lisle Wilkerson grew up in Tokyo, Japan. She speaks fluent Japanese and does voice work in both English and Japanese.
Lisle is the powerhouse behind some of the gaming industry’s most popular female fighting characters, such as Nina Williams and Christie Monteiro from Tekken, Sarah Bryant from Virtua Fighter, as well as Shenmue II. Last summer Lisle was involved in the Shenmue Kickstarter announced at E3, which broke many records, including a Guinness World Record. Most recently Lisle did dubbing for an upcoming ULTRAMAN film as well as the animated film Eden. She also acted alongside Bill Murray in the Academy Award-winning Sofia Coppola film Lost in Translation and had a lead role in the award-winning indie film Kamataki. She not only does video game voices but also voices Batz Maru from Hello Kitty and does commercials for companies such as Nissan, Panasonic, Sony and others.
Lisle currently lives in Los Angeles, where she continues to do voice acting and works as an interpreter. Lisle has interpreted for everyone from Keanu Reeves to best-selling author Marie Kondo to various J-pop stars. She is also a local media correspondent for Japan, covering high-profile events like The Grammys, Academy Awards, Emmys, and Golden Globes. Lisle is currently the assistant producer of the upcoming film, Black Hat. She also has a popular podcast called “The (Mis)Adventures of the Blonde Geisha”. And when Lisle isn’t busy working or running around the country doing cons, you might find her in her pink boxing gloves trying to save the world Nina Williams-style or spending her time at home with her adorable, jet-setting, bilingual cat Princess Genki.
