I am looking for someone to do a voice over but I am looking for something specific:
- must be a Welsh speaker
- must have a voice considered to have 'warm tones'
- a Canadian or East of USA accent
- mature tone of voice
- can be male or female
It's tall order I know...but can someone help me?

So tonight is the opening night for Act One's production of King Lear! It all feels a little surreal at the moment - for so long Madi and I have been in charge, and now it's all down to our cast and crew. It's like being on a roller-coaster that has started moving. You're strapped in and there's not a heckuva lot you can do...
We're trying to blitz some last-minute promotion. The work we've done so far it seems to have paid off. Tonight is sold out completely, and the other…Continue

Three days to go! Awesome rehearsal yesterday - the music is really complimenting the action well, and the guys' characterisations are pretty much spot on. Everyone's really excited for the opening night on Tuesday, and it's great to be sorting out the lighting effects. The strobe was collected today, which should add a lot to the storm scenes and the climactic final battle. The get-in is tomorrow - we'll have the set up finally. Having seen it build up in stages, it'll be great to see it…Continue

Well, today I'm going down to the Pics awards with the famous Film Team. I can't wait much longer! My friend that is nominated are Euan Miller, I wish him tremendous luck and I hope they win!
But I've been editing my latest film and I think it is going pretty well! There is a strong plot for once and the story line is funny and interesting. I'll post a link to it when it is finished.

Dear NTW Community,
Act One Drama Society is putting on a modern version of Shakespeare's King Lear. It starts next week (Tuesday) and is running until Sat 4th Feb, in the YMCA theatre, just off the Walk, in Roath. Act One is a primarily student based acting company, but is aiming to widen its appeal this year. Everyone is welcome. More information, including ticket purchase information on the King Lear event page (see my profile on NTW).
I am now offering exclusive masterclasses in actor training, performativity, vocal coaching, technical theatre, directing and tutoring/teaching theatre and drama.
Contact me for a quote.

Everyone at NTW has been thinking a lot about the future recently as we are about to embark on developing our next three-year plan.
In the summer of 2011 we asked TEAM members about their vision for NTW in 20 years time and much of this has already shaped our thinking. Here is a clip from what our performers (…Continue

My last blog post was before Christmas. There was a moment when I considered the possibility that this issue may be linked intrinsically to a bout of festive laziness. However, this moment was a brief one, and the thought was quickly dismissed. I then began to wonder whether the lack of blog post was due to a lack of Welsh Theatre, but then I remembered I’d already written that blog, so I couldn’t go down that route for fear of becoming tedious and languorous, repeating the same old…Continue
