Want to get to know Penny better? We asked her a few questions about her life and work – read her answers below:
What is your real name?
What is the most exciting project you EVER got to work on?
Last year I worked with B7 Productions on a 15 part supernatural radio drama series soon to be available on Audible.
What is the most exciting project you worked on this year?
This year I have just started voicing regularly for the No Sleep Podcast…. a horror podcast with a large cult following…. lots of fun creating character voices here.
Can you give us a short history of what you do?
I trained as an Actress at The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, and after many years of touring and working in the fringe and West End, I decided to focus on my main love, Voice Overs. Building the home studio was the best move I ever made.
How did you get into voice acting?
Through the radio training at drama school, I surprised myself by finding it so much more exciting than stage and film.
Who is your role model in the voice over/acting industry?
Carl Prekopp – a great friend with the most fantastic voice, I always love turning the radio on and hearing his dulcet tones!
How do you warm up to record each session?
A big run, and some tongue twisters.
What is your favourite piece of audio recording kit and why?
Not strictly audio kit, but my fantastic pdf script is a godsend for marking scripts, particularly with character notes for audiobooks.
Could you tell us something about you that we won’t be able to find anywhere in your CV/Website/Social Media profiles?
My husband is also a full time voiceover, and both my children (Mabel, 3 and Bertie, 5) have also recorded heaps of ads – it’s always fun getting projects that use us all! I have just this week adopted a puppy, Ted, but I don’t think he’ll be coming near the booth!
