More About Lisle:
Lisle Wilkerson grew up in Tokyo, Japan. She is the powerhouse behind some of the gaming industry’s most popular female fighting characters, such as Nina Williams and Christie Monteiro, Sarah Bryant from Virtual Fighter, Shenmue II, just to name a few. Lisle was also in the Academy Award winning Sofia Coppola film “Lost In Translation”, as well as the award winning indie film “Kamataki”. Lisle speaks fluent Japanese, and her voice work is done in both English and Japanese. She not only does video game voices, she also does the voice of Batz Maru (of Hello Kitty) and commercials for such internationally renown companies as Nissan, Panasonic, Sony, etc. After finding herself entangled in various culture shock experiences when she moved to the US a few years ago, she started her blog “Memoirs of a 6ft. Blond Geisha”, which deals with culture shock/reverse culture shock as well as about her experiences growing up in Japan. Lisle currently lives in Los Angeles, where she continues to do voice work, and also works as an interpreter. She is also a local media correspondent for Japan, covering everything from high-profile events like The Grammys, Academy Awards, Emmys and Golden Globes. Lisle currently hosts a weekly radio report for Japanese radio, and is the assistant producer of the upcoming film, “Black Hat.” Most of Lisle’s panels are focused on Japanese culture, as well as about the VA world and working in Japan. (and yes, OF COURSE that includes many Engrish stories!!)
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.
