Hello Will Lyman.  I clicked on the Friend box to say thank you in an unexpected way for leading me to this website.  You have been at the top of my shortlist of narrators since I first heard your work on Frontline.  Imagine my surprise when I stumbled onto a web page that included my name with yours in complimentary terms.  At the time I didn't know much about you except for Frontline and from a close buddy Stu Daley an ex NBC staff announcer and freelancer.  He praised you highly. I Googled your name and I am honored to be on this website.  By the way, your English is better than decent.  It's a pleasure to listen to you.

Hi Will!

Just a quick note to say THANK YOU for joining the Marketing For Fun and Profit Group!

And thank you for already jumping in and participating. Many of us are fans and we appreciate you shedding some light on the various issues that we all deal with in this business!

BTW, just FYI, the way the Discussions in the Discussion Forum are set up, the one with the latest comment activity goes to the top of the list, so all of those are essentially active.

The Comment Wall is chronological.

Thanks again! Enjoy yourself! And if I can be of any assistance, please don’t hesitate to holler at me!

Hi !

Boy! Could we use your help!

I know you’ve been a member of Voiceover Universe for some time, but I wanted to introduce one of our groups to you.

We're looking for answers! Should you be in a Pay-To-Play site? Do you need an agent? How can you maximize your current client relationships? How do you find your niche?

I hope you'll check out and join a group called MARKETING FOR FUN AND PROFIT. It's a group dedicated to discussing ways we can market ourselves - what works; what doesn't. You’ll find some very interesting ideas and concepts there! And we would appreciate your input. Click here for the link: MARKETING FOR FUN AND PROFIT!

Best to ya!

Thanks Will - Yeah....I hope I can get to the point in the states where I just go into the studio! This tech stuff is challenging for me - but interesting nonetheless!
Nice to meet you here!

You have an unmistakable, instantly recognisable sound, Will. I've heard you many times and been awed by your voice and skill. You're one of the best, man. It's an honour to know you.

Coming from such a terrific voice such as yours, I take that as a great compliment, Will! :D

Will- Documentary VO is what I want most to do. I believe yours is the quintessential documentary voice. And, since I don't have your voice, I'll need all the knowledge, ideas and help I can find. In the meantime, I find inspiration in what you have done. Would be honored if, at some point, I had the chance to correspond/chat with you. Thanks and best wishes.

Hey Will... don't want to sound like a sycophant, but you are one of very few people who've inspired me throughout my career in the v/o world. I was captivated by the sound you delivered the first time I heard you back in 1995 on a Discovery Channel documentary about air disasters when I was in Hong Kong as a v/o for the STAR TV Network.

I'm glad I found ya in this big voice-over universe.

Cheers Gazza

Hey Will... I just did an audition a few weeks ago for "American Gangsters" - History Channel... Was asked to read in a style similar to yours... I always get a kick out of that. My first thought was... If you want Will, pay the man. :)

Hope you are well!

Thanks for the note about "Tide of Tears" -- just had it's L-A (not LA) premiere earlier this month.
I got one yesterday you'll appreciate. The spec was for Will Lyman combined with a touch of John Cusak! How'd they come up with that!

Thank You for taking the time. I started in voice acting in January. Any advice you would like to pass on?

Hi Will, Want to crack into the weird world of computer games?

I wish you the best of success in all your adventures! I'd love you to join my group Ask a Casting Director. There's a lot of useful info that might help you there.

I'm a Casting Director and experienced actor (4 octave range) for Video Games and more. It's a unique genre, unlike any other that requires a lot of differentiation in voices because there are so many parts with so few lines each. It requires a huge vocal repertoire. If you feel you're experienced as a voice actor with a lot of diverse and useable characters, and you can hit the ground running, you can go to my Talent Assessment page. Classes and coaching links are also there, if you'd like more instant help to get where you need to be to land those jobs.

Stay Super!

Hi Will,
Welcome to Voiceover Universe. My best tribute to you is to tell you how often I get audition specs telling me to (try to) sound like you.

WILL LYMAN!!!!! Great to have you with us sir. One of the great storytellers of our time, and a very caring soul. Maybe that's why your reads are so honest and real.....that whole soul thing. I'm going to be in Boston for an elongated Memorial Day weekend...I'd love to buy you a cup of Dunkin Donuts Coffee. If you're not in the Green Mountains would love to visit and chat in person. Welcome Will! -JT
