This week, I'm chatting with Susie Valerio, a native Brazilian voice actress based in Brighton, UK. Susie graduated in Drama, Film & TV from Brunel University, and she later completed a two-year Meisner Technique program with The Impulse Company in London. Susie does VO in advertising, games, narration and animation, among other genres.
We discuss the following topics:
- How Susie got introduced to VO though workshops in London;
- Susie's initial skepticism at finding Portuguese VO work in the UK;
- Susie's early days working in a casting studio, assisting with casting for commercials and film;
- the appeal for and interest in "International English" voice over;
- why Susie loves working in commercial VO, and the thrill of live directed sessions;
- the danger of overpreparing for an audition, as relayed through Susie's work in casting.
