Friendly, Upbeat,Youthful, Energized and Versatile
Completely bilingual in French and English, Serra is a non-union voice over talent who works consistently in both languages. A native French speaker who speaks fluent French with no regional accent (French dialect), Serra has a wide range of American and "European" accents, ranging from silly cartoon-style character voices to a valley girl teenager to a thick French accent or neutral European accent. Her cartoon voices vary from a young boy or girl 2-3, to a feisty teen-aged girl, all the way to a goofy grown-up or a grandfather voice. She sings, able to maintain character voices while singing. Basic female voices are upbeat, young, accessible and girl-next-door friendly. Has a popular smooth motherly voice and a friendly, spunky young adult voice.
