Have you ever found yourself voicing the role of your dreams?
Mark Silverman shares his story about how growing up Disney prepared him to became the voice of Disney’s attraction “The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror”.
Have you found yourself in a similar position?
Impressions and The Twilight Zone
When I was a kid I developed a nice talent for sounding like other people. I did impressions of all my teachers.
All I did as a kid was go to Disneyland and watch Twilight Zone on television. I started doing an impression of Rod Serling.
When I became an adult, I heard Disney was looking for a Rod Serling voice for an upcoming attraction for Disneyworld based on The Twilight Zone.
The Disney Audition
I went in to audition and they really liked me. I was asked back and I auditioned again and finally Disney chose me.
The ride is called The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror and it is now in three Disney parks! My voice is heard by thousands of people every day.
It’s great to hear about stories that “come full circle”. Good on you, Mark!
Have you fulfilled a dream voice over job? If not yet, what’s your dream voice acting role?
Looking forward to hearing from you!
