Stephen Carignan

Character Specialist to the nth degree

Voice Description

For me, versatility is the name of the game. I have a lot of experience in Forensic (Speech competitions) where many distinct characters are used in rapid succession. Unlike most character actors, I can actually speak in dialects. Different from my many character voices, dialects are played straight with no frills, just an Irish/English/Russian person speaking.

My Voice Experience

I have performed for Italian royalty. My IQ is 152 and I have a photographic memory with no flash. I have memorized ten pages of dialogue in four hours. I am the greatest actor for one reason: I do not have an opinion. I have the skill, but cannot direct my way out of a paper bag. All you get with me is talent. When a director says do it this way, I say okay. When a costumer asks if the pants fit, I say you tell me. If someone genuinely wants to know what I think, I tell them.

I have performed in over 75 live theatre production ranging from community theatre to Teatro di Anghiari in Italy. I have won several speech awards, placed second in the National English Speaking Union's National Shakespeare competition with over 56,000 entries. I have received 16 thousand dollars to study in Italy and have come back with volumes of experience from countless productions, endless hours of rehearsal, and would like to market myself from my house now as I have a three month old daughter.
