Miyuki Sawashiro (沢城 みゆき, Sawashiro Miyuki, born June 2, 1985 in Tokyo) is a Japanese voice actor affiliated with Aoni Production. She originally joined Mausu Promotion in 1999 before departing the agency in August 2015. Fans commonly refer to her as "Miyukichi". Although married since 2014, the identity of her spouse has been kept anonymous. Her younger brother Chiharu is also a voice actor. She enjoys reading as a hobby.
Sawashiro's interest in acting took root after receiving praise for her role as a witch in an elementary school play. After watching Rurouni Kenshin, she decided to make voice acting her dream career, eventually auditioning for the role of Petit Charat in Di Gi Charat during her middle school years. Despite her inexperience, she landed the part and received training from Mausu Promotion's vocational institute. She also dabbled in staged acting by joining Theater Gekindango.
Unlike most voice actors, Sawashiro has the distinction of voicing the same character in both her native Japanese and English. Having been exposed to the English language during a homestay program at Pennsylvania, she continuously practices it in her spare time and hopes to one day do voicework overseas.
Sawashiro made her debut voicing sweet innocent characters, though her popularity with fans rose to new heights once she started playing roles that made better use of her versatile vocal range. Her performances won various accolades at the Seiyu Awards, some of which have earned her the title of "Best Supporting Actress" repeatedly. A few of her roles are Cammy in the Street Fighter series, Milla Maxwell in Tales of Xillia, and Catherine in Catherine.
