Vanessa Lee

Persuasive, fun, trustworthy, storyteller, sincere.

Voice Description

"A distinctive and spellbinding read from this natural storyteller. A voice you can trust." Native British, London accent, well spoken, poignant, alluring and youthful. Cultured, confident and charming, reassuring, warm and friendly or cute little girl.

Currently my voice can be heard in a Mudd face pack TV commercial and an AxaPPP radio commercial. I also recently voiced a cartoon by Tony Husband for the Environmental Investigation Agency and I voice children's characters for animations and video games. I have a home studio and can deliver sound files within 24 hours.

I have recorded the voice over for a short film, "Stop the Clock," (produced by Susan Doyon) which highlights the symptoms and consequences faced by people diagnosed with a little known degenerative condition called Ataxia. It is shown on the community channel/media trust website.

Recommendation from Ash Atalla,TV Producer, The Office, The IT Crowd.
I would like to recommend the voice over artist Vanessa Lee who I regularly work with. Most recently, Vanessa has read in parts for live sitcom try outs for my new projects. That these performances happen in front of television broadcasters and commissioners is a mark of the high regard I hold her in.
Her voice is clear, calm and excellent for telling a story. When auditioning other actors, I have often asked her to read with them – far better performances are coaxed from them with her professional readings as opposed to my stuttering, embarrassed producer efforts. Further, I have also asked her to perform some voice overs on some BBC transmitted shows.
Reliable, professional and good - I would without hesitation urge you to listen to Vanessa’s showreel and employ her.

Client Comment from Mark Holownia
Vanessa was a great find for our recent children's title 'Snapper and the Snow Bunny'. the feedback we have had on the book has been supurb so far particularly towards the audio CD which owes a great deal to Vanessas captivating narration. She is very professional to work with delivering excellent quality work on time. We have already booked her for our next book 'Snapper and Pirate Potbelly'
