THE CAST OF PIANO WOMEN

Jennifer Sun Bell headshot.jpeg

JENNIFER SUN BELL (she/her) is an award-winning actress, singer and voiceover actor who is passionate about giving a voice to the unheard stories of this world and of our imagination. As a biracial Korean American, she found there were so many silenced voices and stories that needed to be shared. A once shy girl who was once told her speaking voice was “not good” and that she should speak like she sings, she’s found that no matter your sound, if you speak from your heart, your voice will be heard and will make an impact. Jennifer has worked alongside some of the greats like Jim Carrey, Don Cheadle, Kristin Bell, Ben Schwartz and many more. You can see her in Universal’s American Reunion, Showtime’s Kidding, CBS’ NCIS, and more. She’s also had the pleasure of representing being biracial Korean American by voicing characters like feisty Kpop Troll in Dreamworks’ Trollstopia on Hulu, bomb enthusiast Rin in Midwinter Game’s Scavengers, streetwise bookie Tess in EA’s Need for Speed: Unbound with A$AP Rocky, Tessa Park in MGA’s Rainbow High, and Amazon Game’s New World as Knight-Regent Jin Jae. She can also be heard as loving Tamaki Iwato in Makoto Shinkai’s Suzume, Ifrit in Arknights and has lent her voice to many Netflix, Amazon, Hulu and Disney+ English dubs as the female lead, Genshin Impact and so much more she can’t share just yet! She is also always working on original music. The world is a canvas and she is painting a beautiful picture for all to see and hear!
