Experience

Actress (former singer and dancer) - I have performed many roles (a few of which are listed below) in repertory theatre - drama, comedy, and in musicals, variety, solo vocal cabaret, film (Victor Victoria) and television (Morecambe and Wise Show). I started my career as a narrator of childrens' programmes for the British Council Malta Rediffusion Radio and have recently voiced several commercials on Vectis Radio and Gov Radio in the UK. Further information can be found at http://www.spotlight.com/5892-8977-4349.

I can also use my additional many years' experience as a professional ballet dancer and teacher/lecturer and several years in a medical private practice with detailed knowledge of the technical terms in both fields to add that authentic touch to audio projects.

Testimonials

‘We very much enjoyed working with Melanie, who was very accommodating when it came to asking for changes to the initial script. Also, Melanie’s response was always very speedy, which made it easy to complete the project on time’.

Michael Voges, Executive Director, ARCO (www.arcouk.org)

ARCO

'Melanie Fraser produced an excellent and believable voice for the slightly deranged character of Penny Greyback. The character appeared in the indie video game, Dark Matter: Hudokai, as part of the main villain group who push the story. Melanie's voice elevated the qualities that needed to stand out, for Penny, such as her glee from her weapon's research, as well as Penny's ambition through her not-quite-sane conversations with herself. As such, Melanie's experienced voice pushes Penny to be a believable character and well suited in this sci-fi RPG.' - Edgar Duncan.
