Ellis Maarseveen

Warm, multi-facetted, all-round actor and voice

Voice Description

My voice is warm and between mezzo-soprano and alto; this describes the colour of my voice more than that I can actually sing in that register.

I have experience in voicing boys in cartoons but also high voiced teenagers, and of course any lady, old or young, or robot, or animal, or crazy person that comes along.
On the other side, I have done radio- and TV commercials (from ice cream to double glazing, and from Playboy calendars to hi-fi systems), continuity presenting, commercials for Business News Radio, reading books to CD, dubbing films, reading poems to animations, educational material (with simple songs) and radio plays.

Warm and deep for narrations, but also business-like. Sexy and fun for commercials, but also housewife like, or over the top. Smooth and professional for presentations, but also with an instruction-like voice.
On the whole, I'm very versatile, easy to work with and can take directions very well - as long as my voice allows it.

Accents, Impersonations, Characters and Dialects

British, British posh, Welsh accent, London accent, Translatlantic accent, US, English with accents from many European countries (French, German, Spanish, Balkan-countries, etc.

Characters: with my experience in cartoon-voicing, you can ask me to do anything as long as it's not a teenage girl - my voice is not high enough for that.

My Voice Experience

I worked for many studios in London and in the Netherlands for many different kinds of jobs.
Radio commercials for banks, ice cream or Playboy calendars, reading books to CD, instructional programmes, navigation systems, continuity presenting, dubbing actors in films, cartoon voices, poetry reading - a wealth of versatility. You name it, we do it.

This is purely my voice experience - apart from this I have also done a lot of acting for film and television, for commercials and for theatre.


My Training

I trained at the Theatre Academy, Maastricht, the Netherlands, and then spent 16 years in London, working as an actress and a voice over artist.
I attended many acting workshops (from Keith Johnstone to Ivana Chubbuck, from Theatre de Complicite to Enfants Terribles) and worked with great UK voice over talent in radio plays or doing radio commercials.
I'm also a judge for the BBC young speaker awards (presentations done by secondary school students), and a theatre lecturer.

My Studio Equipment

I use the Blue Yeti Pro (2017) for home recordings, but of course I prefer coming to a studio to work together with directors and engineers there and then. I live in Tokyo, so that's not easy!
