As a voice-over talent as well as a professional film, television and theatre actor, Talmadge has a wide range. Her voice is described as mid/deep, rich and smooth, yet she is quite versatile. A corporate spokesperson, she also plays quirky, sultry, the country woman, the friendly mom or the girl next door. Audiofile magazine says of her award-winning audiobook , "Her strength is her consistent use of accents and a variety of speech patterns....her performance perfectly conveys the French accents and Gallic personalities of the (main character's) family." With her theatrical background, she brings life to your words. A reliable professional!
