Voice Description

Voice over talent Lara Parmiani has been one of the best known voices on Italian TV for the last 20 years, and more recently has featured on American and British TV.
In 2015 was nominated in Los Angeles for a Voice Arts Awards for Outstanding career in Voice Overs. Currently based in London, she's also voiced world-wide campaigns in English with European/Italian accent (Ethiad, Bella Italia, GHD cosmetics, Kayak.com, Keating hotels, Peroni)
Lara speaks standard Italian with no regional accents, and European English. She's also able to speak British "RP" English.
Her unique versatility reflects in her extended range (teens to mid 30s), and ability to change style, pace, accent and mood according to the client's requests - whether is corporate narrations, sensual up market adverts or young and hip promos.
Lara's talent for characterizations (she's dubbed hundreds of Japanese Anime) makes her also ideal for videogames, audiobooks and cartoons.
