Over the past 5 years I've voiced literally HUNDREDS of cartoon episodes for Netflix, Amazon Prime, and most recently CBeebies.

Whilst working on Tinpo for CBeebies I was cast alongside 3 of the greatest voice actors in the industry:

Lizzie Waterworth-Santo - the BAFTA-nominated voice of Horrid Henry, Keith Wickham, known for the voice of The Fat Controller in Thomas & Friends, and Joanna Ruiz, known for countless characters in shows like Dennis & Gnasher and Fireman Sam.

In this 2 HOUR+ chat, we look at how YOU can begin your journey into voice acting for cartoons, and members of Act On This jump on camera for some 1-2-1 career advice too!
