Biography

Sheridan grew up in Vancouver and studied at the Vancouver Youth Theatre.[1] She attended Simon Fraser University and graduated with a BFA degree in theatre in 2001.[2]

Before Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Destiny came out in English, on many of the anime websites, Sheridan had mistakenly received credit for Stella Loussier's English voice. She was initially succeeded as the voice of Barbie by Diana Kaarina in 2010, beginning with Barbie: A Fashion Fairy Tale, but later returned to the role in 2012 in Barbie in A Mermaid Tale 2. She continued to voice Barbie through 2015, when it was announced that Erica Lindbeck would be taking over in 2016.[3] Sheridan is married.[4]
