    That's great to hear! She's very talented!

    I sometimes search up Lisa Jai/Yamanaka to see if she's doing anything, I was a fan, I was sad when she sort of ...dropped away, I don't think her voice 'aged' too much for Sherry, so I wonder if her 'almost quitting' impacted her decision whether to reprise the role or not. If so, that's sad =[

    I thought this thread was going to be about Eden Riegel. ;)

    I can't believe Lisa Yamanaka is still around and active, though! Seems so crazy, for some reason.

    started a topic Sherry Birkin's VA is an inspiration!

    Sherry Birkin's VA is an inspiration!

    You might know her from the Magic School Bus and of course, Resident Evil 2, but did you know Lisa Yamanaka (now Jai), has become an advocate for disabled actors?

    Good for her.
