Rich,Character Specialist,Versatile (accents).

Voice Description

I am trained as a character actress. My Voice is naturally well spoken, rich, warm and deep. But I have a versatility to my voice so can create a character with my voice, for example, sexy, smooth and seductive, young and bubbly. I also combine this with accents to add a further dimension to this specialist technique. Please listen to my voice reel for examples.

My Voice Experience

I am an actress with a playing age of mid to late 20's and have a range of theatrical experience. I have recently been employed using my voice for DJ jingles on the radio, and voice overs on promotional adverts for events and games on the internet. These have mostly been Low budget jobs that have required me to record my voice (using the Logic software) at home and edit the file and send via email. I have also done a couple of jobs, recording my voice at a studio.

My Training

The Actors Centre: Currently taking regular courses in Voice and Acting for Camera
Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, London: Intensive Shakespeare Course (Summer 2008)
De Montfort University, Bedford, UK: 1st Class BA (HONS) Dance and Drama (3 years)
De Montfort University, Bedford, UK: HND in Performing Arts (2 years)
Norfolk College, Kings Lynn, UK: Btec Nat Dip in Performing Arts (2 years)

My Studio Equipment

I have used the Logic software to record my voice and edit it but I am by no means an expert! I have had basic sound training with regards to technical requirements for stage productions.

Additional Skills

I am currently taking regular acting classes at the Actors Centre and regular dance lessons to keep my skills fresh. I have been cast as a dancer in a film called Believe, and have appeared as a couple of roles in Holby City and have filmed a role in a training video for the BBC. I have performed and run workshops for children. And I have also played numerous roles in Pantomime, mainly witches and evil characters but this year (2011) I will be playing the fairy God-Mother in Cinderella!
