Today, I’m delighted to welcome onto the blog, my lovely sister-in-law, Angela Rowland who did the voice over for my book trailer The Half Truth. She did an amazing job for me, the link for which is below, and I wanted to ask her more about her work.
Angie, how did you get into your line of work, acting and voice overs? Where did it all begin?
I got into professional acting, having never been to drama school or anything like it, by being spotted on the amateur stage in my 20’s . I was advised to get into voice over work, which in turn provided me with the professional contracts I needed, in order to secure my Equity membership. I then went on to get into roleplay and other acting jobs. From that I was then recommended to the Film Studies Department at Anglia Ruskin University in Cambridge and now work regularly with the film students on various projects.I am currently acting in 2 short films, both of which are major graduation projects. I feel very fortunate.
What did you do before your acting and voice over work?
I was a legal secretary for many years and worked my way up to a high level in that job but I always said I did not want to be chained to a desk until I retired! So to find myself working as an actress and voice artist for the last few years and for that to build so that I can say I have a career as an actress is so rewarding and I am certainly doing what I love the most as a job!
And what have you got planned in the future?
My ambition now would be to get onto Spotlight with a good show reel, so that I might be able to get an agent to try out for television and theatre work. If I could make this happen in 2015, that would be so good but in the meantime I am more than happy as things are.
Thank you so much for doing the voice over on the book trailer for me – I’m delighted with it.
Very best of luck with your show reel and Spotlight.
