bio

Leslie O is the casual, conversational voice you are looking for in your commercials and the trustworthy voice for your narrations. Using her background as an actor, she is able to take direction very well and her throaty yet clear vocal quality is a unique tone that stands apart from your average female voice.

Leslie is a non-union talent with a home studio which allows her to add the final touches ensuring every client is satisfied. Her ability to master timing allows for an illustrative audiobook delivery of children’s stories, her favorite genre to perform. No matter the project, Leslie will provide a pleasant and easy experience from inception to finish. And “absolutely kill it” for your next project.

Leslie O, the “not-your-average female voice.”

artist statement

It is often said that the mother is the mere vessel by which a child is brought forth into this world. The conduit by which we are able to influence and be inspired by that of another plane, made manifest on Earth. A good scene is like a birth. The actor uses his or her understanding of the intent and message of the writer, and brings forth life to a character- to a whole new reality even. When done right, you do not see the actor- but the message- the tears, the anger, the guilt, the sympathy-all invoked by the artist’s choices, that make you forget you are taking part in an imagined world.

This is why I perform. To bring front and center the very thoughts, ideas, and emotions from which we often disengage, in hopes of shielding ourselves from pain, vulnerability, fear- from disappointment. I choose to confront the very things we run from in order to truly experience a life worth living.

I believe digging deep and being confrontational is the only way to reach a true understanding of Self.
