As Mary Poppins says ‘In every job that must be done there is an element of fun’ so whether your voice over project is character animation, or a corporate training video, I will strive to make the whole process of working with me as fun and easy as possible for you.

The last thing you want in your busy schedule is hold ups from the voice over talent. You can rest assured that I am super organised and pay attention to details so that all goes smoothly and you get the results you need in a timely fashion. Spit spot!

Specialist Services

Gaming Voice Over

Why Choose Deryn Oliver?

Even as a child at infant school in the 70’s I was complimented on my clear and confident speaking voice. When asked for volunteers to read out loud in class it was my hand that shot up as although I wasn’t great at science and maths, I knew I had a talent for speech.

And, as I found out in later years, a talent for acting too. Combine those two talents with a cheery disposition, a sense of fun, a touch of perfectionism, a smidgen of silliness and a large helping of reliability, and you have your 'go to' British (Female) Voice Over actor.


So How Can I Help?

'Let’s not complicate things that are really quite simple’ - Mary Poppins

And I agree wholeheartedly (or should I say ‘Indubitably’) as being simple and straightforward to work with is the kind of British Voice Over Actor I am.
Working from my cosy Pro Studio in rural Shropshire, I will record a high quality voice over to your specifications for your project, will follow your directions, give feedback, chat with you about progress and above all do all these in a timely and cheerful fashion.

I’m happy to quote for a live directed session over Source Connect, Zoom etc if required and can also travel to a studio of your choice if required.

Want sound effects or music adding?
No problem. We can chat through your ideas and together create something fabulous!


What makes me different

As well as having a quintessential British voice AKA Mary Poppins I can also bring other elements of her qualities to your voice over project.
Like her I will bring a bit of calm order and professionalism as well as a sense of fun and versatility. And although I can’t magically produce copious items from a carpet bag I can produce a variety of character voices for you from sweet young heroines to nasty old witches and countless others.

As a professional British Voice Actor I work everyday from my Pro Studio so can offer a 24 hour turnaround and if you are casting for a voice over project look at the variety of work I can help you with.
