What’s in a Voice(over)?

Voiceover acting is one of the hardest areas of showbiz to break into. Not only is it highly competitive, an accomplished VO actor can voice a wide range of characters, so there is more work for fewer actors when the look isn’t a factor in hiring.

When someone not in the industry is asked what they think a VO actor does, animation usually is the first thing that comes to mind. There are other, lucrative jobs where a voice alone can land an actor a great gig: promos and commercials, announcing, video games, audio books and toys.

One example of a product voiced by a young actor is The Smart Toy.   You can hear the actor’s voice by watching the short video on their website.  Check it out!
