In this episode, I continue my interview with UK and US based voice actress Jennifer Taylor Lawrence. You may be familiar with her work in the video game Killzone where she plays the role of Shadow Marshal Luger. In addition to her voice acting and on-camera acting accomplishments, Jennifer was kind enough to record the introduction voice-over for this podcast.

During the second part of our conversation, Jennifer discusses what aspect of her dancing and theater training she finds most useful in her voice acting career. She also talks to me about the differences between the US and UK voice over industries. I was surprised by how differently the casting process works in each country and how important your demo is in the UK market! I found it very enlightening, and I hope you will too!

For this episode of the podcast, I’m very happy to welcome a guest that everyone in my audience will recognize, even if you don’t yet know her name. Jennifer Taylor Lawrence is a voice actress from Australia who has worked in both the UK and US voice over markets. While some of you may have heard her voice acting work in the video game Killzone where she played the character of Shadow Marshal Luger, Jennifer also happens to be the lovely intro voice for this podcast, and it is she who introduces me in each episode.

Since I know I have many international listeners both in the UK and Australia, I thought it would be helpful to bring Jennifer on the podcast and chat with her about her experiences breaking into the world of voice acting as a UK based actress. I ended up learning a lot about how different the UK voice over market really is, and I think many of my listeners will benefit from Jennifer’s story.

For this, the 60th episode of the podcast, I thought I’d spend some time talking about the 5 things I love most about voice acting and why I find voice acting such an enjoyable and enriching occupation. Many of you may also appreciate the same aspects of voice acting that I do, but haven’t really put your thoughts into words. Others of you may not know as much about voice acting and might wonder what the appeal is of pursuing such a career. Whether you’ve just started researching voice acting or are completely committed to finding your niche in the world of voice over, I find that it can really help clarify one’s goals in life to sit down and take stock of all the things one enjoys about a certain pursuit. Focusing on all the things you appreciate about being a voice actor will not only inspire you to follow your voice acting goals with more vigor and enthusiasm, but I believe it will actually accelerate your journey towards your goal. You become what you think about. So let’s spend this episode thinking about some of the positive aspects of a voice acting career in order to bring that vision to fruition.

The 5 Things I Love Most About Voice Acting are:

  1. As a Voice Actor, I get to work in a field of entertainment that I’ve loved since I was young, namely Animation, Video Games and Anime.
  2. Voice acting allows me as an actor to play characters I would have very little chance of playing in live action productions.
  3. Voice acting feels like more of a meritocracy to me than on-camera acting.
  4. As a Voice Actor, I get to live where I work and work where I live.
  5. Voice acting allows me perform while still being able to maintain my privacy and anonymity.

I expand on each of these topics in detail in the podcast.

I’m eager to hear what you love most about voice acting! Please let me know by leaving a comment on this blog post!

All the best to you in your voice acting endeavors!
