My Voice Experience

Most celebrated in the video game world as the voice of fiery-spirited, celtic pit-fighter Cait in Bethesda’s BAFTA winning blockbuster ‘Fallout 4’ and adorkable scientist Suvi in the highly anticipated ‘Mass Effect: Andromeda’ series: Katy has also gained global recognition over the years as truth seeker Klue in 'Pokémon Go' creator John Hanke’s groundbreaking Augmented Reality Game ‘Ingress’, as well as a recent debut in Universal Picture's animated movie, 'Monster High: Electrified' as Silvi Timberwolf - the ‘volageous’ new werewolf at school!

Other notable projects include narrating audiobooks for top publishers, Penguin Random House and Hachette Book Group. Titles include ‘The Gracekeepers’ by Kirsty Logan and ‘Letters from Skye’ by Jessica Brockmole - which earned Katy an Earphones Award. Townsend has lent her voice to several high profile television shows such as 'Days of Our Lives', 'Jimmy Kimmel' and 'Conan O'Brien' - as well as innovative projects such as award-winning Virtual Reality game ‘ADR1FT' and Raphael Rogers' celebrated sci-fi short, 'Immersion.'
