Victoria Pero

Classical, Resonant, Authoritative, Rich, Warm

Voice Description

As a classically trained actress and Voice and Speech teacher, I am in complete control of my voice. My voice is rich, resonant, authoritative, warm, extremely flexible with precise diction and a theatrical feel. I create both male and female characters of all ages and many different accents and dialects. My type is highly professional, woman-in-charge, but friendly and warm. I have quite a bit of color and character and am able to really lift text off the page.

My Voice Experience

I have been teaching Voice and Speech for the actor and been a Dialect Coach for 10 years. This past year, I decided to begin a new career as a Voice Over Artist, so while I have been reading countless scripts, monologues, ads, commercials, text, speeches, and every other form of the written word imaginable, I have only just begun to gather professional credits. I have worked for Nick News (English narration over the Japanese citizens talking about the tsunami) and Time Warner Cable. For TWC I did a long-form training video to train clients in privacy issues. I look forward to developing a large body of work in the coming year!

Additional Skills

As a classically trained actor, director, voice and speech teacher and dialect coach, my greatest skills lay in lifting complex text off the page. Narration, long-form, and audiobooks are my best fit. My voice is clearly trained and while I can loosen it up, I am much more appropriate for demanding text, complex sentence structure and highly illustrative work.
