June is audiobook month but every month feels like audiobook month for me because I listen to so many ! When I choose audiobooks I tend to look for awesome narrators. I find ones I like and go back to them again and again. So, every now and then I’ll be watching TV or a movie and thinking… this person should totally lend their talents to audiobooks.
Known for voicing the angsty teen prince, Zuko, on Avatar : The Last Airbender, Basco could find his niche voicing YA/NA males.
Also from the Avatar Franchise I think Janet Varney, who voices Korra, could add a little variety to the usually higher pitched YA female voices.
I recently finished watching United States of Tara, where Collette plays an American woman with a disorder that causes multiple personalities. Colletee does an impressive array of American accents (including a kid and teenagers) considering Collete is Australian She could totally handle an audiobook book with an ensemble cast. Also Australian audiobooks need narrators too !
Another actress who has to master numerous accents and inflections is Tatiana Maslany from Orphan Black, a show where Maslany plays clones. Her accents range from Canadian, Russian and British
Palencia does a lot of anime voice acting but what makes her stand out is how she switches between high pitched girly voices and deep male voices. I’ve heard a few audiobooks by voice over actors and I think they are great at voicing emotions.
