Highlights

Let me introduce to you a voice that's deep, rich and warm; a voice that holds people's attention with ease. Smooth, epic and authoritative - or plain straight for factual, corporate narration.

It's why so many clients in both UK and US book this talent regularly and repeatedly. That, plus my reliability and commitment to your satisfaction - as you'll see from my testimonials below.

Visit donalcoxactor on YouTube to hear what my voice can bring to a story - from Scrabble 'Anagram Lovers' to 25 years of Global Environment Facility at the Smithsonian, New York.

Delighted with my work for them, top global PR agency Edelman told me recently "You should record every story ever written".

Testimonials

"When a director from Texas is hired by a global environmental firm in Washington, D.C. to find the perfect voice to bring alive the story of The Elephant In The Room, the worldwide search ended when we found Donal Cox. If you're looking for a real pro who's also pleasant to work with, Donal Cox is a great choice." Patrick Fries, Director, Arrowhead Films pfries@arrowhead.com

"Donal is an exceptional artist. He brings an astute and deep talent to the process with his professionalism and warmth. I would highly recommend him to any director."
Timothy Stubbs Hughes, Director

Grey Swan

Donal was an absolute pleasure to work with and immediately got what we were trying to do with the film. His delivery was spot on straight away but he also had a superb range and was able provide a variety of alternatives for us to work with when asked - the words "Cat Selfies" have never before been said with such vigour. All in all a great experience and we'll no doubt work with him again in the future.
