Job Description

Hi there,

I am looking for 2 male voice actors for paid work. Need a quick turn around on this as the clock is ticking.

I work in a recording studio and have been tasked to overdub 1 episode of a particular foreign series into English, 2 of the characters have been sent back to be changed.

The studio is located in OXFORDSHIRE UK so please only apply if you are able to attend sessions here or have a professional broadcast quality sounding set up of your own suitable for recording to image.

First character - Male lead role. Need someone between their 50's and 60's but if you're younger and think you can pull it off then feel free to send an audition.

Accent - Standard English but if you have a regional hint that is fine.

Wise, gruff sounding voice, middle eastern warrior turned farmer.

Here are some sample lines :

I was thirteen when my father was killed and you accepted my custody. So you’re like my father and I have to obey you as it is required in my religion and culture. I’ll listen and obey but I expect you to talk to me in a way that I would understand! I’m forty years old. To a man who has sworn on his sword since teenage years, leaving the battlefield is a disgrace. Yet war has some rules and regulations. Gold is right! They have a lot of gold dear uncle. It’s wrong to get into such a war and to continue is much worse.

and this is an angry one

Why are you here? Are you here to show off your loyalty or to humiliate me?

Second Character - Male, frail, calm and old but wise sounding man. Need a voice that sounds 60+ years old.

Accent - again clear standard English but a regional hint is fine.

Sample lines :

Speaking to a crowd

Listen brothers! Listen! Your weeping and moping won’t heal any injuries. The commanders of the Imam’s army left one by one and were imprisoned by Moa’vieh’s gold coins, while they considered themselves Shiites. Those who swore allegiance to the son of the Prophet and encouraged him to fight, when they heard the jingling of Sham’s coins, attacked his tent and plundered it. They even took his rug, rosary and prying rug. The story of these greedy people is similar to the Israelites and the Sanei calf. They remind one of what the Prophet said, “All the nations are disunited and mine is disunited because of possessions.”


Isn’t it an honor for us? At a time when he has been physically and emotionally hurt, he has trusted us. For the time being, we’re as honorable as the Prophet’s offspring. Isn’t it a disgrace to lose the relationship under the excuse of farming?

They are only looking for key scenes cut into a 15 minute sampler so you will not need to record the entire episode. Your time will be paid for so please attach a quote with your hourly rate onto your audition as well as any demo reel you may have.

If we can get this good enough then 43 episodes of work will be commissioned for show on television channels internationally.

Audio file format - Broadcast WAV at least 48khz at 24 bit depth.

Artistic direction - Will be given if you can attend recording sessions, otherwise I can connect over skype alongside the original voice track in the foreign language.

Special requests - Very urgent so please apply soon if interested!

Script - which lines for the sampler are to be decided once voice talent is found, please see the samples above for a feel.

Any questions please email auditions@lyfordsuite.com
