Stephanie Ru-Phan Sheh, who also goes by the alias Jennifer Sekiguchi, is an American voice actress, ADR writer, director, singer and producer.[2] She has worked for several major companies, including Cartoon Network and Sony. She is often involved with doing voice over work in anime, original animation, video games, dubbing, commercials, and TV shows. Her notable voice roles include Orihime Inoue in Bleach, Hinata Hyuga in Naruto, Eureka in Eureka Seven, and Mikuru Asahina in The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya.[2] In 2014, she became the voice of Usagi Tsukino, the title character in the Viz Media English dub of Sailor Moon.


Sheh was born in Kalamazoo, Michigan and was raised in Northern California.[1] She spent much of her childhood in Taiwan, where half of her relatives still live, and speaks Mandarin Chinese and Taiwanese.[3] She became interested in being an actress when she was in her early years in Monta Vista High School in Cupertino, California. While at the University of California, Los Angeles she was involved in anime clubs.[2] After graduating from UCLA, she took a job as a producer while she pursued her acting career. She got her training and studying on acting, voice acting, and improvisation in Second City Training Center, East West Players, Susan Blu Voiceover Workshop and UCLA School of Theater, Film and Television. Stephanie has also recorded radio spots for United States Cellular Corporation.

Under the moniker of Jennifer Sekiguchi, she made her voice acting debut as Silky in I'm Gonna Be An Angel! in 2001 and then had a major role as Mamimi in FLCL.[4] She would later land starring voice roles as Orihime Inoue in Bleach and Eureka in Eureka Seven. She also voiced supporting character Hinata Hyuga in the hit series Naruto in which her character had a major role in the storyline. The three shows have aired on Cartoon Network with varied success. She describes Hyuga's issues with self-esteem as very relatable.[5]

Sheh has been involved in voicing characters in video games such as BioShock 2, Aion: The Tower of Eternity, True Crime: New York City, Devil May Cry 4, Grand Theft Auto V, and Resident Evil 5 as the current voice of Rebecca Chambers on the Resident Evil franchise. Beyond using her voice, Stephanie was flown by plane to Japan to provide the motion capture for the character Cereza in Sega's video game Bayonetta. She also voiced Finnel in Ar tonelico Qoga: Knell of Ar Ciel, Mlle Blanche de Grace in BioShock 2 and Orihime Inoue in the Bleach series.

She is the voice of Jinafire Long in Monster High and Duchess Swan in Ever After High.

Sheh has appeared several times on G4's Attack of the Show! as "Tiny Olivia Munn". In 2012, she was a host in the 2011 Talk-Show TV series BPM: Beats Per Mnet.

In 2011, she formed the fundraising organization We Heart Japan in response to the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami.[6]

In 2013, she reprised the role of Eureka in Eureka Seven: Astral Ocean.

In July 2014, Viz Media revealed details behind its upcoming Sailor Moon Blu-ray release and the series' new dub cast at its panel at the 2014 Anime Expo in Los Angeles. Stephanie has been cast to voice Usagi Tsukino/Sailor Moon in Viz's redub of the first anime series.[7]

Sheh worked at Synch-Point, which produced English dubs for anime. One of her early major projects was producing for I'm Gonna Be An Angel![8] and she was working with Studio Pierrot when she brought in Marc Handler to ADR direct and write for FLCL.[9]
