Kathy Thompson

Comedy Singer Animation Character Quirky Wry

Voice Description

I am a professional voice actress with a versatility and range. I'm experienced and can give a producer any sound he wants from Bart Simpson to Cher as an impressionist.

I give my original characters identifiable vocal quirks. I can deliver "today's" commercial sound: dry, real, matter-of fact, understated. I work fast. I can also have an exceptionally loud voice! I love anything comedic (overt or subtle) - and when you mix that with characters, my voice is a good fit for quirky animation roles. I will deliver any nuance the producer requests from close-up understated soft-sell to an energetic hard-sell. When asked, I am happy to share my own creative suggestions so those words can jump off the page.
