Glen McCready

Rich, smooth, authoritative, Brit R.P./BBC accent

Voice Description

Glen's voice is versatile - from energetic, dynamic hard sell to velvet, chocolate tones for commercials.
He is a classically trained actor and smooth, rich, Standard British English Pronunciation (R.P./BBC English) is a speciality - ideal for corporate narrations.
In videogames, he has voiced HIGS, the floating robot guardian of young Robin in ROBINSON: THE JOURNEY for PS4 VR, a long-dead Harry Potter wizard - potion master Zygmunt Budge, dotty old Major Crum in Wallace & Gromit's Grand Adventures, a Russian super-villain, a Japanese gangster, a bank manager from Birmingham (England), a psychotic convict from the US southern states, a crazy old hermit, a guy dying from an intergalactic space plague which has left him with only his head and shoulders(!), a little blue alien and more.
His audiobook experience is extensive and he is a 3 time winner of Audiofile Magazine's Earphones Award. He has voiced everything from ancient wizards, crabby old ladies, friendly aliens from outer space, monsters from under the bed to Santa Claus.
He is equally confident with zany/grotesque/outrageous cartoon style voices - from Ren & Stimpy to Disney villain sound-alikes.
