 Experience

I am a versatile, award winning actress and voice artist with 35 years experience.
I have performed in many films, television series and theatre productions since 1981 playing a variety of roles both comedic and dramatic, performing characters with North American, British (RP and regional), German, Scottish and a variety of South African accents including neutral English South African, Afrikaans and other South African dialects.
I have always had a love for radio and all things voice related and have worked consistantly since 1981 performing in many radio serials and dramas playing a variety of different characters for SA fm (National Radio Station).
Currently I can be heard on SAfm's RADIO VUKA which is a daily RADIO SOAP that has been running since 2009. I perform the roles of Veronica, a middle aged actress and DORIS, an interfering senior citizen, Ivana, a Russian model and Irma, an Afrikaans poppie who inadvertently gets involved in a crime ring.
I have read Poetry and numerous Audio Books both for children and adults also for SAfm.
From 1989 to 2007 I presented and read News on SAfm, 5fm and 94.7fm Radio. During that time I created the voice of hilarious and much loved character Thelma, a senior citizen with a penchant for cocktails. I have also voiced other colorful characters from all walks of life including Princess Diana, Queen Elizabeth, Margrate Thatcher and local politicians Thuli Madonsela and Helen Zille.
Since leaving university I have done many voice overs for Television and Radio in different styles from Soft Sell and Sexy to Conversational and Corporate, Hard sell and Bright to Character voices and Announcer Tags.
I have voiced several animation series such as Maja the Bee and Ball Town, the voice of Josh in The Magic Cellar, and Ma Roach in Illuminati.
I have been coaching privately for performance, voice and accent training since 2002 and give vocal, accent and performance master classes and workshops privately and for AFDA (The South African School of Motion Picture Medium and Live Performance) and for the University of Witwatersrand School of Drama.
Louise is the vocal and dialect coach for the Indigo View Academy of Acting.
