is a recurring fictional video game character appearing in the Resident Evil video game series. A woman of Asian descent, Ada is a cunning and formidable secret agent. She is voiced by actress Sally Cahill in Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 4, and has also appeared in Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles and Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles.
When she was first revealed in Resident Evil 4, her identity was unclear. When asked by IGN editors if Ada would appear in the game, Resident Evil 4 producer Hiroyuki Kobayashi stated that a mystery woman appears in the game.
Ada is voiced by Sally Cahill in Resident Evil 2, Resident Evil 4 and The Darkside Chronicles, and by an uncredited actress in The Umbrella Chronicles. Cahill said that getting the part of Ada came from doing other voices for the company.
I seemed to have the sexy sound they were looking for. The producer and creators were Japanese, and they seemed to respond to the tone of my voice (I'm not quite sure why), so they brought me in to read for Ada. I saw them nodding all their heads in the control room through the glass and that was that....Yes, there was a particular direction for Ada — a sense of mystery, not everything revealed to play through on the lines — but it was up to me to make that come across my own way....I found the longer narrative for Ada in Separate Ways interesting, as it showed more about what she was really thinking, which hadn't really happened up to then. It was created for me as the team had discovered how popular Ada had become, so that was nice....I loved the new look for Ada — I wanted to run out and get that dress for myself!! It may have influenced my work on another level without me knowing. It's possible....was nice to have more time to develop the character and get into her thought process. Every time I went to the studio, they would tell me the response Ada was having with the public, so I was happy for Ada and the producers. That recording session was a long day. We recorded the monologues at the very end and were worried we would run out of studio time, but they were happy with the very first take. At that point, I felt quite connected to Ada as well....I have had a few opportunities to play the game, but it's a strange feeling. I would get personally upset about bad things or injuries happening to Ada, so I think in the future, I'll follow another character."
