Are you taking acting classes to become a better Voice Actor? | VOTE FOR KERA O'BRYON

Are you taking acting classes to become a better Voice Actor?

In a great voice over talent you will find a true actor. I have bounced around many acting classes, never to stay, and finally I have decided to take it seriously. In the past 3 months I've had a few call backs, and just recently I was cast as lead role to play a ( TV spokesperson) Police Officer in a 1-800-411-PAIN commercial, but my upcoming trip to NYC to watch my daughter, Amber's summer Alvin Ailey performance may have put a damper on that. She needs my support.

The good part is, I am still in acting class with Stewart Solomon here in Miami, FL and I am enjoying every bit of the journey.

As odd as it may sound, I'd like one day for some one to NOT know that voice was mine..

I will soon compile a list of VO coaches that are actors as well.

The Voice-Over industry's, Kera O'Bryon is also an Actress and member of Voice Over Universe, and she needs our support so that she can appear on AMC's MADMEN >> Vote Here!

I am grateful for the my start in an acting class, and my teacher who is an active voiceover talent, Scott Stackhouse, who encouraged our class to learn more about voice over work. That's how I found out about this website by googling voiceover. Eventually, I got into online radio at the same school, and I am now the station manager for the 2010-2011 school term. We're growing the station as I write this.
Meanwhile, after a few auditions, I finally landed a role in a play off campus called "The Statistics" that we are performing during the KC Fringe Festival July 23 - August 1, 2010. For anyone in the area, the KC Fringe Fest is Fantastic Fun! It's a bunch of actors, artists, performers and shenangan-ers who are having a good time sharing talent and provoking thought. Check us out at
Long story -short, I could have never anticipated the journey, thus far, and I continue to be grateful to all the support along the way, including those at VU.
All the Best to VU and Kera.

Congratulations, Zurek! As a trained and experienced stage, movie, and radio theatre actor, I know first-hand the value of formal training in acting for voice-over work. Having taught acting, theatre, and speech both at the college and high school levels and having viewed some of your videos, I predict that you will be successful in your acting classes, and will especially enjoy film acting. Wishing you continued success!

P.S. Good luck, Kera! You have my vote.

Not long ago my first VO Agent emphasized to me that it would serve me well in my career to take acting classes...particularly Improv. She suggested I look into workhops at either The Upright Citizens Brigade or The Peoples Improv Theatre since I was living in NY at the time. I fully support your belief in this regard as I have always believed that our craft requires discipline which stems from an acting foundation. I think many of us share this same value.

Way to go, Z! I, too, have been cast in a leading role in a forthcoming web project which will lead into a film next year (check out the FB fan page). I have not taken acting classes, but I plan to do so. However, I have been taking improv classes recently, which, I guess, is acting. I post comments on the project and the classes on my FB fan page. So, to anyone on FB, you should check out my page, and friend me if we're not already FB friends. To learn about "Wireface," the project I'm involved with, check out the fan page above or go to for more info. If anyone knows of a good acting coach in or around the Louisville, KY area, I would appreciate the info.

We all need to find the path which takes us to a place where we are able to master the art of illusion. The step from "mmmm great voice" to "we believe you" is a huge step and acting classes will help you make that single most important step.

Congrats Z... I'm going to have to call you the next coming of the "Smith" Family... Get Jiggy wit it...

I finally faced my fears and have been taking acting classes for about 8 months now.....from Bill Applebaum/Actors Improv Studio (great teacher) in Los Angeles. Between he and Bill Holmes, who is a great v/o coach I am noticing that I am doing much better (winning more auditions).....Nancy
