Karen Dyer is an American actress of Jamaican and Irish heritage who provided the voice work as well as the motion capture performances for Sheva Alomar in Resident Evil 5.[1] Aside from her role as Sheva, Dyer is also known for voicing Elena in Street Fighter X Tekken, Street Fighter X Tekken Vita television mini-series, and Ultra Street Fighter IV.


Until the recording of the Resident Evil 5 storyboards, Dyer had no experience with acting with firearms. In preparation for acting the part Dyer became certified and received training. Due to Sheva being a left-handed character, Dyer also had to specifically learn how to use weapons with her left hand, and learn left stances.[2]
