Here is something she put together to showcase her 'brand':

Cate Blanchett’s voicematch at Dreamworks in HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON 2:

Her reads are described as confident, quirky, natural, sincere and authoritative. She is known for making the driest copy sound warm, inviting and friendly, and for bringing authentic human connection into all of her work. She finds voice work exciting and inspiring and it reflects in her work.

For corporate work, she has an optimistic, driven and educated sound: for narration work she sounds warm and assured. In animation, audiobook and videogame she works across the board, with a range of characters and ages, male and female.

She likes to get on with the job of bringing your copy to life, engaging the target demographic, and creating a fun and efficient work rapport where she nails the tone and feel of what you are looking for quickly. Being a trained actress goes part and parcel of the work that differentiates her - she is trained to quickly engage a target audience, and create meaning. She is also a writer; sensitivity to your text and it's interpretation is important to her. Mary Jane has her own home studio, access to ISDN and patch, and prides herself on a professional and speedy turnaround.

She has particular interest in projects with a global humanitarian focus, that are ethically sound. She is an active campaigner in the abolition of slavery, zero tolerance of MST, and violation of human rights. Don't hesitate to get in touch if you think she can help you out.

Microgenius, Bank of America, the Obama Campaign, Dreamworks, HBO, Claritas for Futurebrand who branded the 2012 Olympics, Tech-crunch, Jaguar, Emagine - and Dettol, Forest of Dean, City University London, Shade Station, NASA.
She is also the voice of Puma Mobium, Jet 2 Airways, Eharmony, Sunny Finance, Aqua Credit, and LinkedIn Talent Pipeline.

16 years as a full time VO artist in the UK and latterly, here in Los Angeles where I record from home. I do educational and corporate VO, videogames, animation, phone systems, IVR, ADR and dubbing for TV, documentary, audiobook, elearning, web videos and narrative reads for all sorts of contexts and commercials. I had a radio show for a year entitled 'the Mary Wells Experience' for KCLA which was a 5 minute feature show about the adventures of being a newbie in LA, described as 'a relevant irreverent mix of feature and talk'.

Service Description

I have access to phone patch or ISDN where you can direct me 'live'.


This campaign has been enormously commercially successful, and Mary, as one and only indisputable voice of Eharmony in the UK throughout the whole campaign (radio, tv and internet broadcasting) is central to this success. The marriage of this particular campaign and her talent has been so successful that she has just been demo'ed for the USA campaign also.

Each advert features various real couples who met and got together thanks to Eharmony, and the constant voice throughout who guides the viewer / listener through the narrative of the experience is Mary's. Eharmony is different from other dating websites as it identifies itself as a relationship site instead. It focuses on finding people a life partner, so it's success lies in appealling to those who wish to find long lasting love. The subtle undertones of character, class and intellect in Mary's voice, as well as the particularities of her British accent suggest to our audience that they are more likely to meet a life partner of character, class and intellect if they join the service. Her voice is crucial to conveying our message to a finely honed demographic, and it clearly shows in the statistics previously provided that its working!

We recently worked with Mary as the Voice-Over talent for a few of our explainer videos. To state that she was a pleasure to work with would be an understatement. Mary listened to our requests and the direction provided but was not afraid to take initiative and put her own spin on things- which made the end product even better. Mary is a true professional and her experience speaks for itself in the quality of her work. She hits every timeline and always produces only the highest quality work. We will be sure to recommend her to our clients in the future at every chance we get!

Rachel and the team at Simple Story Videos (

"I hired Mary to do a very last minute voice over for an animated video for a large pr agency. She was prompt in returning emails and calls and even helped us when there was a late night revision to the script. Her read was perfect and our british client was very pleased with her accent. Mary was a total pro and I'd hire her again in an instant."

A very disappointing experience. Mary considered it appropriate to contact my customer directly and send the voice over file.
This happened without any agreement or attempt to contact me through this site.
I think this is unprofessional and as a result will not be using her work, or consider her for future work.

Mary Jane is a pleasure to work with. We needed her help to narrate a case study about fashion and styling, and her voice complimented our case in a wonderful and clear way.

She's very professional and transparent about the way she works. She delivers on time, in rushed situations, and even when we have a time difference because we are on the other side of the world. Hopefully we can work with her again.

Mary Jane Wells was brilliant to work with!
For our customer training material we needed a tricky mix of a professional, and clear, yet interesting tone and pace and Mary Jane Wells was able to provide the perfect voice. We were very happy with the voice recordings, and on top of that she was able to turn the job around quickly and was very communicative through the whole job to ensure we were getting what we needed.
A pleasure to work with and would highly recommend!
