Having an ability to play both lead and character roles, in both a dramatic and comic context and with an especial love and skill for comedy, Louise performs in several UK regional accents - for example: Yorkshire; Cockney/London; Somerset/West country; Scottish and Liverpudlian [scouse] and has a strong musical ear for international accents, including: Australian; General American; East European; Russian; Italian; Spanish and French].
Louise's specialities are corporate VO's that require a calm, authentic tone to impart a lot of detailed information, in a clear yet engaging manner, such as explainer videos and corporate training modules and also Louise is known for bringing to life crazy old ladies and unusual characters, that require unbridled imagination and originality. Louise is always happy to offer a truly unique characterisation for characters in projects such as Video Gaming or Audio Drama!

"I LOVE MY JOB!
...I believe that creating a project and finding just the right tone to make it a stand-out from the crowd and be successful, should be a fun and easy process, on both sides!
I'm glad to say that I have always been described as being - 'down-to-earth, easy and pleasant to work with' and during my career have happily accepted repeat contracts with producers, companies and directors. I am always happy and receptive to take re-direction if need be to make that delivery sound 'just right'.
I pride myself on my diligence and so will always ensure that, you, as a client are completely happy with the final pace, tone and overall delivery of my recorded files. It is my mission, that a client receives precisely what they anticipated after hearing my audition. Exceeding expectations is my goal. I guarantee that your final recording will be delivered to you, on time and in the format you require!
Always thrilled to play a part in the creation of a project - I love getting the opportunity to Voice such diverse scripts! So, I'm looking forward to working with you and providing the audio for your next venture!"
