ABOUT DERYN
MY STORY
Ever since I was a child, I have enjoyed reading out loud. Even at school, my clear voice was commented upon and I was often asked to narrate for productions and assemblies.

Later in life, I joined an amateur dramatics society and over twenty years I have honed my acting skills playing a wide variety of roles from scheming villians to naive heroines. I still perform in the Bayston Hill pantomime every year along with my husband, and I particularly enjoy playing the baddie!

I love TV quizzes and have been on Eggheads with my pub quiz team, The Fish Brains, and also appeared on the ITV show Cash Trapped with Bradley Walsh.  It was during filming that I was asked by the production team if I was interested in becoming a voiceover artist due to my clear diction and confident style.​ I went on to win the show and, remembering the positive feedback on my voice, decided to act on the advice to pursue a career as a voiceover artist.​

TRAINING & EQUIPMENT

After looking into various coaching courses, I decided to attend Gary Terzza's Voiceover Master Class in London. I learned from one of the best and gained a greater understanding about the voiceover industry.

Now, I have my own home audio studio in Shropshire and I am thoroughly enjoying the huge variety of voiceover projects that need a voice such as mine.

In my cosy home studio, I use a Behringer UMC22 Audio Interface and a SC400 large diaphragm condenser microphone, so you can rest assured that my voiceover will be clear and crisp. When I'm not recording, I'm sometimes accompanied in my studio by a quietly sleeping cat.
