About Mia Fothergill

Hello! I'm Mia and I have over 30 years experience of working in and around this industry, after I began acting professionally at the age of 9. I now work full-time from my well-equipped home studio, a little bit north of Toronto.

My voice is perfect for commercials, IVR prompts and On Hold Messaging, narration projects such as white-board animation, corporate, website, internet or social media videos, explainer and training videos, documentaries, podcasting, eLearning and educational scripts or tutorials, direct response ad (DR), mobile apps for Android or iOS, radio imaging or promos, or videogames. I also have nearly 20 years experience working in a medical field, so medical narration is a specialty of mine, alongside other technical or legal narration. I work mainly in my native British RP (Standard BBC English), though I can also showcase other regional British accents if you prefer.

Please feel free to add me to your FAVOURITES LIST, so you can always find me if you need me in the future!

To get a feel for my sound, the following words best describe me:

Service Overview

Voice Over

I am able to turn projects around within 24 hours or usually same day if you have a deadline to meet. Once you tell me what you need, I always keep clear and open lines of communication, so you're never left in the dark on a tight turnaround! I am very happy to self-direct, but we also have lots of options for connecting if you'd prefer to direct me live from my home studio. I can also do proofing/copy-editing if need.

Voice Over Testimonials

I came across Mia months ago and just fell in love with her delivery. Her rare mix of warmth and professionalism inspired me to find a way to use her for a client film. The perfect job for EasyJet came up, and the client shared my enthusiasm! The process was smooth, fun, and the results simply perfect. Love working with Mia, and will make sure it happens again...

BERT Animation

I recently had the pleasure of working with Mia on a commercial project that she was absolutely perfect for. I’ve rarely encountered such intuitive understanding of the right tone and pace for a project, nailing takes on her first pass and was extremely accommodating of the clients changing needs! Highly recommend and very much looking forward to working with her again.
