Anna Brook

Husky, Sexy, Character Specialist, Cool, Warm

Voice Description

I have a deep, husky voice with a naturally cool edge but warm tone.

Originating in Kent, but now being an east London girl, I'm equally at ease with an assured and calm RP accent for documentary and luxury sell ads, or a cool urban sound perfect for music promo. Radio producers have told me my voice has a 'coolness' which makes it stand out for this kind of work.

I can be upbeat and mumsy, with an empathetic or reassuring tone. My voice is trustworthy.

Informative and clear RP for narrations.

Assured and professional for presentations.

Accents, Impersonations, Characters and Dialects

I am a professional character actress working in theatre, film and television. I have 10 years worth of experience of learning and perfecting accents and have a good ear for them. I can give you a posh yummy mummy in a hurry to a swedish sex bomb, a russian bond girl to a west country bumpkin.

I have a deep, natural RP voice useful for documentary, narrative and corporate and some commercial work.

I live in London, so can give you street teenager on the back seat of the bus, or a cool DJ - useful for music promos. Or stepping into the next county, what about an Essex girl off for a spray tan.

I can do most UK accents and will be able to learn new ones quickly on request. Most popular accents include Scottish, north and southern Irish, West country, Welsh, Kent, Liverpudlian, Mancunian, Geordie.

I can do Australian, Standard American, New York, Southern state - American, Swedish, Russian, French, German, various Eastern European.

My Voice Experience

I have worked on a series of ads for 118 118 which involved character work with the lead voices on the ads.

I work regularly for a successful online radio drama company called 'Tin Can Podcast'.

My Training

I trained as an actress at the Webber Douglas Academy of Dramatic Art on the 2 year Diploma in Acting. I have worked in the business for 6 years.

TV and Film work includes 'Wallander' (a scene with Kenneth Branagh) for the BBC and a guest lead in a double episode of 'Holby City' and 5 feature films. These include the 'Reuniting the Rubins' with Timothy Spall to be released this year - 2011. 'Life Just Is' with Paul Nicholls and a lead in gritty independent film 'The Lost Choices'.

Theatre includes the Time Out Critic's Choice play 'The Six Wives of Timothy Leary' at Riverside Studios and productions at The BAC, York Theatre Royal, The Pleasance Islington and Assembly Rooms Edinburgh.

I have shadowed voiceover artist Gina Mellotte and have taken various classes in voiceover technique - with Cut Glass Productions and at The Actors Centre, Covent Garden. We also did a term of voiceover training at my Drama School.

I have a first Class degree in Media Studies from Sussex University.
