My Voice Experience

Veteran voice actor, Debbie Grattan, has that special sparkle that Orange County ladies possess…and she’s used it behind the microphone and in front of the camera for the last 25 years. Versatile, with an actor’s instincts, Debbie uses her warm, friendly style to voice everything from online narrations to Disney parkwide announcements to national television and radio campaigns. She has worked with scores of well-known clients including BMW, Hasbro, Microsoft, TimeWarner, AT&T and HBO, seamlessly shifting between the conversational, the humorous and the dramatic. Not only will she deliver exactly what you need, in record time, she’ll make sure everyone has a good time in the process. Once you work with Debbie, you’ll understand what all of her other loyal clients already know….that Debbie delivers….more than just lip service.

Additional Skills

After 25 years as an actor onstage, on-camera, and behind the microphone, Debbie has worked with everything from Shakespeare to phone prompts, and all things in between. She can assist in making creative touches and grammatical corrections to your copy, and lending it the authentic and beliveable quality you've come to expect. She's also adept at Teleprompter/EAR prompter, though not often called for in her current line of primarily voice over work. She has a working knowledge of many different medical and technological terms, though clearly not equipped to perform eye surgery, or hardwire your new computer....even though she may sometimes play a doctor or computer tech on TV or through many an instructional video! She'll certainly make your job an easy one, by lending her professional voice talent to your words, and helping to create a finished product that sells, instructs, clarifies, delights, and amuses.
