Ever since I was little, I loved listening to radio dramas. I was always so impressed with how expressive someone could be with only their voice. Later, I started noticing voice acting in movies and TV. Some was amazing, other performance...not worth remembering.

That got me to thinking about what a voice actor needs to be successful. Where a film actor has their whole body, a voice actor doesn't. Their voice has to do everything. So, what qualities make a good vocal performance, especially in a radio drama? Who, in your opinion, is the best voice actor?

Not a radio drama performer, but Mark Hamill is an amazing voice actor. He'll act out what he's doing while recording the audio. I'd imagine this is a common thing to do, but his performances are excellent. His version of The Joker is one of my favorites. I'm certain I'm not alone in that opinion! Surprised

I had no idea that Mark Hamill did voice acting! I listened to some of his work and I'm really impressed. I wonder if his role in Star Wars prepared him to be a successful voice actor?

I've also noticed that lots of movies hire famous actors or musicians as voice actors. I wonder if this is because the name sells tickets, or if the person is actually qualified for the role? I wouldn't be surprised if its the former. Confused

My favorite voice actor is Stacy Keach, especially when he's the narrator. He has such a distinctive voice. I think some people are just born with it. I wonder how difficult it is to break into the industry?

Voice acting mainly reminds me of anime. I think that the industry will be more in demand in the coming years because of animation and gaming. Maybe knowing more languages can give an edge to someone who's just starting.
