Hi there, I’m Sophie Dean, a British voice over artist based in Leighton Buzzard in the UK. I record narration for clients all around the world.
With my friendly, trustworthy and fresh neutral British voice, I can elevate your explainer video, internal e-learning course, promotional material and much more.
Your words are important.
They are your story.
Let me bring them to life.
Medium, alto female
Fresh and straightforward
Neutral British (West London to be exact)
Friendly, trustworthy and sincere
Storytelling has always been a big part of my life, in my acting work and my previous nanny jobs. Escaping to another world through books as a child was one of my favourite things to do. One day it was casting spells; the next, slaying the dragon on a quest to the princess.
Storytelling naturally carries itself over into my voiceover work, there is always a story to be told, in any script. Trust me to find the story in your words, have a look at these companies who have trusted me with theirs.
I have always loved performing, from my weekend dance and drama classes as a kid to my studies in dance and musical theatre. After graduating I was thrown into the deep end of the freelancer world. There is nothing like a power cut midway through a theatre in education show to Spanish children to really test your improvisation chops (we entered a ‘deep dark cave’, and the kids all became ‘goblins’).
Even my hobbies are creative. When not voicing, you can find me making cards, doing embroidery, dancing or taking in a show.
Voiceover was originally the ‘side hustle’ to my acting work, until I realised it’s a completely viable and enjoyable career on its own. I have been voicing projects for companies around the world for a few years and couldn’t be happier. I mostly work for corporate clients, doing explainer videos, e-learning and telephone messages. I’m always open to work on new and exciting projects!
Let’s get to know each other better. . .
My blog goes into detail about my background and creative process, but here are some facts about me.
I have bought a new-build house, which I never thought I would do, as I love the charm and character of old houses. I counteract this by buying vintage furniture and mixing it with the new.
Although I have moved away from London where I grew up, it will always hold a special place in my heart. I once had a blog where I did one new thing a week for a year around the city. This included making my own Christmas wrapping paper, finding a bar behind a toilet and going to hot tub cinema!
Second hand clothes shopping is my happy place, the bargains I get from charity shops are some of my most complimented pieces.
My favourite ice cream flavour is honeycomb, thanks for asking, what’s yours?
