"British Female voice actress, natural, authoritative VO"

Mary Jane Wells is a British female Voice artist, whose work won a BAFTA in recent years (she was series voice for BBC's 'In My Childhood').

WHAT IS HER SOUND?
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.

I sing, and I can add music. I am a voicematch for a few actresses too.
