Rosalind Ashford

British accent--bright, clear, smooth, appealing

Voice Description

A mellifluous native British-English RP accent that is lively and bubbly when needed, sultry and smooth if desired, or rich in character with any of numerous British and European dialects from Cockney to Geordie to Welsh to French. Many years of professional voiceover, radio and narration work are enriched by classical training in dramatic arts and years of professional Actors' Equity stagecraft and theatrical experience including Off Broadway credit, plus film and TV roles. Whether you need a Sloan Ranger, a BBC announcer or a harried housewife; a sexy lady, a commanding businesswoman or a vibrant grandmother--all as needed to suit your project.
