Service Description

As far as I am concerned flexibility, adaptability and customer service are key.


Grant was a client of mine at WordsOut until I retired this year and closed the company.

He is a highly talented professional actor and voice over artist with years of experience. I am thrilled to say that Grant won many high-profile, high-earning contracts for the agency. He played lead characters in the games Bloodborne, Dark Souls and Squadron 42, an audio version of Dr Who, voiced - for many years - language courses for non-English speakers and appeared in numerous radio plays for the BBC.

Aside from being a talent and a consummate professional, Grant is highly intelligent, friendly, a joy to work with, and takes direction easily. I highly recommend him.

WordsOut Voice Over Agency

We have used Grant Gillespie as an artist on numerous occasions through our careers. (I worked as a Senior Art Director for BBDO, GGT/Tequila, CHI&Partners and now I am a partner at The Cat's Meow with Sarah Pilkington who was Head of Copy and a member of the board at MBA Creative/Copywriter at PAA (Part of Engine).

Grant is very friendly, professional and takes direction well. He is also remarkably amenable considering some of our ridiculously tight deadlines.
