Voice-Over Voice Actor Book and Interview

Voice-Over Voice Actor

Voice-Over Voice Actor

A few weeks back I mentioned a great book about what it’s like behind the mic for a voice-over voice actor, called … um Voice-Over Actor: What It’s Like Behind the Mic by Yuri Lowenthal and Tara Platt. I got my copy and it’s terrific. There’s some great blurbs on the book by fellow voice-actors and professionals. The one that impresses me the most is from Voice Director Andrea Romano. If you’ve watched any animated DC Superhero show in the past 17 years then it’s probable has Andrea Romano listed as the casting director.

“Anyone wishing to pursue a career in voice-over will be more prepared and have a better chance of success if they read & heed the wisdom contained in this book. Were I teaching a class right now, this book would be a required text.” – Andrea Romano

My favorite quote is from John DiMaggio (voice of Bender on Futurama)

“Whatever Yuri and Tara say, I wholeheartedly disagree with. They’re a couple of shysters. And if you believe that, then I am Elmer J. Fudd, millionaire. I own a mansion and a yacht. Buy this book, you maroons!” – John DiMaggio

And for those who are deficient in the culture of WB:

But I digress.
