Yvonne Adalian

Character Specialist, warm sympathetic, upbeat

Voice Description

Normally, I have a "mid-atlantic" accent that can lean towards my Brrritishness or my acquired North Americanness with ease.

I am a senior, so my voice is naturally low, but I sing soprano! I am an actor who in the past recorded scores of radio plays and know how to use the voice to express many different characters and emotions. This is why I list myself as versatile - low-sexy to upbeat giggly.

I love to cast spells with storytelling.

My Voice Experience

This is my first foray into the world of voice-overs after taking a brief workshop recently in Vancoucouver in which I found I used the same techniques that I used for radio dramas.

I have recorded scores of dramas for CBC Vancouver and St. John's Newfoundland, (where I was also a newscaster for High School broadcasts) , and London , England.

I have filmed commercials, and dramas, but so far, as I said, have not ventured into voice-overs.
