To be an actor, you don’t just require an attractive face and acting skills. Sometimes, an emotive voice is all it takes to become an actor, rather a voice actor. Voice actors are artists who excel at the art of voice-overs. In television and films, they are the voice behind the animated characters and bring to life the cartoon and the story. In radio, they are the quintessential links between audience and host. Voice actors or voice artists, as they are known as, are just as extremely talented as their on-screen counterparts. Most of them are blessed with a magnetic and emotive voice and are the real heroes behind the scene. The job profile of a voice artist varies – character voices, narratives, translations, automated dialogue replacements and automated announcements, they lend their voice for any of these. America has had numerous voice artists who have brought to life anime characters. They are legendary, they are prolific and they are supremely talented – their versatility has helped them experience variety of roles through their voice. Some of the dynamically vibrant voice actors include Mel Blanc, Walt Disney, Tom Kenny, Johnny Young Bosch, Steve Blum, Crispin Freeman, Jim Cummings and Joe Alaskey. It is to these that we owe the success of famous movies such as The Lion King, Up, The Simpsons, Tangled, Star Wars, and so on. Find out more about their life and works with this segment.
