Ruth Urquhart 30s/40s Female Voice Over
Ruth trained at East 15 Acting School and as well as being a voice artist has spent the last 20 years working as an actor in theatre, film and TV.
Her forte is character work and she has an excellent ear for accents. Being raised in Scotland with English parents she quickly became bilingual in English and Scottish accents, speaking in an English accent at home and a Scottish one at school (to avoid being beaten up by unforgiving children!)
She has worked for a diverse range of clients including BHS, UNICEF and Audible. From cartoons to audiobooks, TV & radio ads to NGO videos, Ruth has voiced all sorts of projects. She has an excellent vocal range from childlike to mature, reassuring to cold, gentle and smooth to animated and excitable.
She has a high spec studio (complete with phone patch so clients can listen in to recordings if required) and has been awarded Audible Approved Producer status. Clients can also take advantage of the fact that her partner is a composer and musician, meaning that their projects can be fully produced with original bespoke music added. She is also happy to travel to studios.
Ruth is easy to work with, can turn around projects quickly and professionally and is always open to direction so clients can get precisely the voice they require.
"Thanks so much for your excellent and prompt work for us on Iron. This recording will give the actors an extremely clear guide to accent as we progress rehearsals and I'm very grateful you've been able to get this to us so quickly and with such good sound quality. Very best of luck for the future."
- Matt Beresford, Director, Bold Over Theatre
"Ruth's variety of voices are impressive. I had a script that required lots of different characters with varying voices and accents. Ruth was very good at understanding the nuances between each character and her sense of timing was exactly on point. I would certainly hire Ruth again given the opportunity."
