Voice Description

Hollypop VO! Spunki-licious sounds available in a variety of FUN flavors!

Holly Franklin is a spunki-licious voiceover star who lost count how many times people have asked her, “is that your real voice?” ages ago.

She specializes in kid, teen and character voices and is best known for her work on My Little Pony, Barney, Owlegories & BOZ the Bear series. She also appears on-camera and in commercial print work.

Whether it was cheerleading, theater or acting out Oscar winning performances for the neighbors while mowing the lawn – all the world has been a stage for this born & raised Texan. Holly went on to attend Texas A&M University where she met her nerdy Civil Engineering husband. After her brief stint as a high school health teacher, she got tired of getting asked for her hall pass. So, she turned in her grade book for a microphone, honed her raw talent by training with the best in the biz, and the rest is Hollypoppin’ history. She has 3 freaking amazing kids who tolerate her quirky parenting style, and even stranger voice.

Holly has a soft spot for preschoolers and rodents, both of which she can imitate perfectly (not including the feet stomping and garden wrecking that you get with the real things). Ask any one of her many happy clients and they’ll tell you - she’s a funny, smart, speedy, flexible pro with an unbeatable squeak and a true claim to the “one-take wonder” fame. She can make your copy pop from her broadcast quality home studio or come to you…without the micromanaging mommy and with a voice that is guaranteed to bring your script to youthful life and make you look darn good.

TESTIMONIALS:
Holly Franklin, where to begin? To say Holly is AMAZING is an understatement. Her energy, talent and versatility make her one of my all-time favorite voice actors! She is one-of-a-kind!
Keith Alcorn, Co-Creator, Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius

Holly Franklin is a top-tier voice talent. She comes to a session prepared, and often requires few adjustments. If I ever wanted an adjustment on a line read, it was always an easy tweak. Holly has a knack for bringing an organic humanity to characters who are larger-than-life or other-worldly. Her performances are packed with humanity. I fully intend to work with Holly regularly in the years that lie ahead. Because of her range, I know she’ll always be one of my first phone calls.
Adam Mellema, Children’s Content Producer, Los Angeles

I loved working with Holly Franklin on the voice overs for Charlie & Company, and a song that I wrote for her character. She’s a real asset, irreplaceable in the role that she brings so much life to. She’s a true pro, punctual, amiable, and takes direction very well. I wouldn’t hesitate to work with her again!
Brian Vander Ark, Lead Singer, School Zone & The Verve Pipe

I contracted Holly Franklin to provide voice acting talent for a children's puppet show I was producing and directing in 2010. Holly was a joy to work with and delivered quality work in a professional manner. Recommended.
Jeff Brown, Creator, Zow Now

Holly is one of the most talented comic actresses I've ever worked with. She brings enthusiasm, joy and a supportive spirit to the set. Her humor is both physical and cerebral--always seeking new directions and experimenting with ideas. She'll stretch herself without effort and always strives to deliver perfection. I can't wait to work with her again. She's a great actress.
Steve Feldman, Emmy Award-Winning Producer, Sesame Street

Holly is a really unique voice talent. She's charming, directable and no one sounds like her. She's truly the great BIG little voice.
Bruce Carey, Private Voice Coach, Voices Carey

Holly, Holly, Holly, I’ve had the professional pleasure of working with Holly Franklin over many years and many projects. She’s one of those people that helps everyone in the studio feel good when she hit’s the door. She comes in and the producers are at ease; they know they’re in good hands with a great performer.

Her voice is immediately recognizable, but what you don’t hear is all the ways she can take direction and push a script exactly where you need it to go. It’s one thing to have a good instrument, it’s another to be an voice actress. This is where Holly is tops amongst the many talent I get to hear every week. I’ve heard her play multiple age ranges and personality types solidly.

As a composer I have thrown her a few curve balls, and she always makes the piece work. I continue to look forward to many sessions with her in the future.
Mark Menza, Composer, Menza Music
