Sara Matsui-Colby

Tiny, But Mighty

Looking for  …

That nerdy, unexpected heroine with a huge heart and who can hang with the boys?

How about a happy-go-lucky assistant who has 37 cats, loves throwing office parties, and is oblivious to her own naiveté?

Then I’m Your Gal!

You might recognize me as the Japanese speaking waitress in the award-winning indie film East Side Sushi, or from various commercials in the Sacramento and Bay Area.

Besides working as a full-time actor, I’m also a shamisen musician, an avid sci-fi fan, and a world traveler.

I’m always on the go, but you’ll most likely see me in the Bay, L.A., or Japan.

Feel free to hang out and explore my site, contact me with questions, comments, or just even a quick hello!  I look forward to chatting with you! 

I’ve worked with Sara Matsui-Colby on various narration projects and workshops.  What impresses me about Sara is her amazing insight into script interpretation!  In VO workshops, her interpretive skills are always right on target, even with her site readings!  She has a great ear and takes direction well!  And—her vocal quality is warm, endearing and inviting!  As Sara’s vocal coach, I can recommend her wholeheartedly without reservation for your commercials, audiobooks, narrations and more!

Sara is a consummate professional and she has my highest respect and regards as a voice talent.When she picks up copy to perform it is spot on, timing spot on, cadence spot on, and very believable! Not to mention she has excellent studio etiquette.Sara has a very personable way about her that people in the entertainment Industry( just)like being around!! I highly recommend Sara’s voice for your next voice over project.

Sara is a multi-talented performer, with whom I have had the pleasure of working on several productions. She recently provided the bi-lingual voice-over recordings for a short play that I assistant-directed. She offered her expert advice on the translations of the script and provided the finished recording on a fast deadline. I highly recommend Sara for her acting on stage as well as voice over.
