Glen McCready | Voice over actor | Voice123
  • LocationCaterham, UK (GMT +1)
Glen McCready is a voice actor located in Caterham, UK. He has been actively working as a voice actor since 1997. He has worked for a diverse pool of clients and brands, such as Pearson Education, Big Finish and Cambridge University Press. Listen to 75 voice over samples that showcase his best work.

Glen's voice is versatile - from energetic, dynamic hard sell to velvet, chocolate tones for commercials. He is a classically trained actor and smooth, rich, Standard British English Pronunciation (R.P./BBC English) is a speciality - ideal for corporate narrations. On TV he was the voice of Signor in Russell T. Davies' critically acclaimed Years and Years for BBC/HBO and the voice of Granitface in the SKY Original animated movie Dragon Rider. In videogames, he has voiced Zevlor, Gimblebock & Ghaik Omeluum in Baldur's Gate 3, Maximilian in Evil Genius 2, HIGS, the floating robot guardian of young Robin in ROBINSON: THE JOURNEY for PS4 VR, a long-dead Harry Potter wizard - potion master Zygmunt Budge in J K Rowling's Wonderbook: Book of Potions, dotty old Major Crum in Wallace & Gromit's Grand Adventures, a Russian super-villain, a Japanese gangster, a bank manager from Birmingham (England), a psychotic convict from the US southern states, a crazy old hermit, a guy dying from an intergalactic space plague which has left him with only his head and shoulders(!), a little blue alien and more. Impressions include a much in-demand David Attenborough. His audiobook experience is extensive and he is a 3 time winner of Audiofile Magazine's Earphones Award (plus once more as a co-narrator). He has voiced everything from ancient wizards, crabby old ladies, friendly aliens from outer space, monsters from under the bed to Santa Claus. He is equally confident with zany/grotesque/outrageous cartoon style voices - from Ren & Stimpy to Disney villain sound-alikes.
