VOICE STYLE/TYPE

Kevin Charles’ voice has been described as smooth, rich, full bodied and aged to perfection. Sounds like a fine wine, right? He is a story teller with a touch of grit and experience. It has a natural warmth and conversational tone while maintaining a healthy dose of charm.

Kevin Charles brings an actor’s sense of personality and character to every script. Whether he is performing the role of the guy next door, a news anchor, a sports announcer, a cowboy, a wise and caring grandfather, or a snarky smart aleck, Kevin is able to take on the persona and create the mood and character for each production. He is regularly cast for a wide range of age categories including male 30’s, 40’s, 50’s and seniors.
His voice style is easily compared to that of Jeff Bridges, Wilford Brimley, and Sam Elliott.
