"British classical actor with clear, warm and characterful voice"

hi, my name is Hywel, I'm a classically trained British actor with extensive theatre and screen experience, and a long resume of commercial and narrative voice over work. I can work legally in the UK, USA and in Germany.

After training at the London Academy of Dramatic Arts (LAMDA) I worked worldwide in theatre, including award-nominated shows in the West End and on Broadway. My screen credits include 'Doctors' for the BBC, 'The IT Crowd' for Channel 4, and 'Macbeth' for PBS Great Performances.

My voice would best be described as clear, warm and characterful, that can move easily between light and playful to serious and intelligent.


At drama school (LAMDA) there was extensive radio and VO training as part of the syllabus, and soon after graduating I quickly signed with London based agency Meet the Joneses who provided core VO training for the commercial sector. And then of course I learned on the job, starting with audio books, before moving into radio dramas, idents and national TV and radio campaigns.
