Aileen Downey - Irish Voice Actor

What do I sound like? Well, I’ve got a soft Southern Irish voice and my natural sound has been described as velvety, warm, calm and smooth. Or if you need a reassuring, relaxed or sophisticated sound, that's also me. But have a listen to my demos, where you'll hear all that and lots more. I can promise that I will bring professionalism, versatility and quality to your project and besides those, I take direction easily and can quickly interpret your brand. If necessary, I’m also adept at making last-minute script edits to ensure you get exactly what you’re looking for.

Currently you can hear me as the Continuity voice for the UKTV’s pretty awesome natural history and science Eden Channel, Sky 532 or Virgin Media 247 and for AMC UK, BT TV 332 or Sky 186, home of great movies and some of the most popular US drama series ever created. Right now too, I’m the Commercial voice for Kia Motors ROI, Corsodyl ROI, and Stena Line and I’ve been having a huge amount of fun playing three characters in the new CGI kids Animation series, from Futurum.

As a script-writer/voice of Audio Description, I’ve written for all the major TV networks including ITV, Channel 4, Five, UKTV, Virgin Media, MTV, Discovery, GMTV and for numerous Cinema and DVD clients like Warner Bros, Paramount Pictures, Universal and Sony. As a scriptwriter/voice of Continuity, I’ve been writing on brand for years, adapting to the feel and sound of each channel I've worked on, EdenAMC UK and History and finding that concise little phrase to whet a viewer’s appetite for the shows they love.

If you think I might be a good fit for your brand, I’d love to hear from you.
