First and foremost, she's a seiyu who's probably better known for her singing career than her acting resume, even though her debut/big break was voicing Hitomi Kanzaki in Escaflowne. Which was, well, a bit of beginner's luck: she was only supposed to voice Hitomi, but Yoko Kanno suggested that they have her sing the OP song and some others.

Sakamoto has many collaborations with the aforementioned Yoko Kanno and CLAMP. Her star as a seiyuu is still rising, even landing her parts in stage plays, including a multi-year run as Eponine in the Japanese production of Les Misérables. Several of her roles she has done alongside Mamoru Miyano and Kenichi Suzumura. On August 8, 2011, she and Kenichi got married. Congratulations to them both!
