Join Mike as he interviews voice actress Kira Buckland.
Kira Buckland is a Los Angeles-based voice actress originally from Anchorage, Alaska.
She first got interested in voice acting at the age of sixteen, starting out by voice acting as a hobby for a large amount of Internet projects. In 2007, she won the AX Idol Voice Acting Competition and as a result got noticed by BangZoom! Entertainment, which helped get her foot in the door to the anime industry.
After finishing college (she majored in Japanese), taking acting and voice classes, and continuing to voice act in flash animations and indie games, Kira moved to California to pursue a career as a voice actress. She worked various jobs in the meantime (barista, retail, waitressing, etc) and began auditioning with a few different studios. Since then, she has become the voice of major characters in all sorts of video games, anime, and other projects, and is now able to work steadily in the field. As an avid gamer, the most personally exciting role for her was voicing Honoka in the fighting game "Dead or Alive 5: Last Round".
When not voice acting, Kira's hobbies include music (particularly classic rock), makeup, alternative fashion and costuming, fitness, and fine espresso. A geek at heart, her favorite series is JoJo's Bizarre Adventure (which she even has a tattoo from!) Also, she's had hair of every color at the rainbow at some point, but these days it's mostly blue.
