Australian, Confident, Natural & Engaging, to Trustworthy & Bright.
Melanie’s voice is warm and personable, making her a great choice for friendly and informative reads. Her Aussie accent is light, and this transatlantic quality can be dialled up or down to suit any brief, so she can turn her hand to a wide spectrum of voiceover recordings.
You’ll also find her regularly working in Neutral RP or General American through a range of professional projects.
Melanie Gleeson is a Professional Performer, Movement Director, Voice Over Artist, Media-maker and co-founder of The Kindling Collective theatre company… She’s multi-hyphenating her way around the globe and loving the cocktail of opportunities that this presents.
Melanie originally hails from Naarm/Melbourne, and is now based in London, having trained at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama (BA in Acting and Musical Theatre), Film Club LDN and Performance Captured Academy (Motion and Performance Capture).
Melanie’s acting versatility and work ethic makes her adaptable as an emerging VO artist; she’s passionate about characterisation and attention to detail, be that a sensual tone, a hint of humour, or a sense of authority. Her specialist skills in Dance, Physical Theatre and Mocap give her an extra edge in the world of Video Games and Animation, and a love of text sees her thrive with more formal campaigns. She also holds a degree in Media & Communications from RMIT University, and with it, a wealth of experience in writing, shooting and editing multimedia content (including audio).
Outside of work, you’ll usually find Melanie at her favourite music festivals, happily covered in glitter and sequins, or traversing the countryside on horse-back!
