It's nearly lunch but I wanted to make sure I let you all know just how much I admire the discipline of voice actors and people who use their voices professionally on a daily basis.
Yesterday, I had an interview over the phone with my good friend Julie Williams, and man, did I ever have to prepare. No cheese, milk, no caffeine after lunch...
I love cheese. Dairy is a major of weakness of mine so to go without was pretty hard.
It's amazing how quickly one can forget (I'm a university voice major but graduated several years ago now) the demanding dietary regiment of voice professionals. I also had to conserve my voice for one of the first times in a very long time.
Basically what I'm trying to say is, you guys are super, and your discipline will pay off in gigantic dividends if you stick to it.
Speaking of discipline, I was fortunate to feature British voice over coach Gary Terzza on VOX Daily yesterday and his extensive wisdom in the realm of looking after your voice. If you want to learn more, you can read the article here:
