Simon Hartwell

  Christchurch, NZ


With over 50 years experience as a professional actor, creative director and writer, I know what is required to deliver a high quality voiceover for a wide variety of treatments. Whether it is a mature, authoritative tone that is required or a quirky character based approach I am confident that I can fulfill your brief.
If you listen to my sample recordings I think you will see that I have a pleasing, easy going manner that can lend itself to the hardest sell or the softest soap - to the most important information or to the lightest of fictions - from the gates of heaven to the deepest hell!
