SO THIS IS THE BIT ON MY WEBSITE WHERE I CAN TELL YOU ABOUT MYSELF, A VOICE OVER ACTOR, BUT….
I quite understand if you are not that bothered. After all, it’s the sound of my voice that you are interested in but just in case you do want to know a bit more about me read on …..
WHAT CLIENTS SAY ABOUT MY VOICE OVER ACTING
WHAT THEY’RE SAYING
Thrilled to hear my character brought to life exactly as I imagined her.
Fantastic work. Took direction well and brought the character to life. Great work and will keep in mind for future projects’
‘Amazing work! Deryn went out of her way to make sure we were happy with the characters before recording’
It was awesome! Love the output! It’s exactly what I wanted.
Perfect delivery, timing and voice. Very happy indeed. Easy to work with. Will be back’
Very professional and great to work
I have always been comfortable with my voice, even at school when I was teased for sounding ‘posh’ and where I was often asked to be the narrator in assemblies due to my good sight reading and projection.
Later in life, I took my voice, along with the rest of me, onto the stage with a local drama society and have played a wide variety of characters from innocent young maids to murderous old crones.
At 50 I don’t play many young maids anymore but fortunately being a sinister old witch is far more fun.
HOW I BECAME A VOICE OVER ACTOR OR VOICE ARTIST
I love TV quizzes and a few years ago appeared on Eggheads with my pub quiz team.
A year later I was on ITV’s Cash Trapped with Bradley Walsh and it was there that a member of the production team asked if I would be interested in voice-over actor work due to my confident delivery.
I went on set feeling positive and determined and very happily I won the show. Wow, what a feeling!
On the way home on the train, I thought more about the comment and decided on a change of career.
I had run my own beauty therapy business for over twenty years and was ready for a change. I signed up on a training course with Gary Terzza from Voice Over Actor Masterclass and haven’t looked back since.
Since that amazing lucky day in Elstree studios, I have voiced a wide variety of projects from children’s audiobooks, corporate reads, e-learning projects and video games. No more leg waxing for me!
