For those of you that have been listening to “Live with Squacky” for a while now (either Season 1 or in YouTube format before this) – you know that animation and character work is my favorite type of voiceover work to do! So when I get the chance to interview actors that are super pros in these genres of voice acting, it’s even more exciting for me!! My special guest today is a top tier talent in the voice acting world. I met Elley Ray Hennessy for the first time in 2012 or so at a VO conference I attended in Toronto. I was so impressed with her level of creativity and her ability to get an entire room of people to follow her guidance in creating characters. I had the chance to attend a session with her again at VO Atlanta after that and was again impressed with her ability to give such awesome direction to get actors to reach their highest level of performance. She is truly one of the best voice actors out there!
ELLEY has been traversing the stages, film sets, television and radio studios for over 40 years, delighting audiences worldwide. Her talent and compassion to share it are "unparalleled."
Elley has performed in over 300 theatrical productions, with hundreds of on-camera series and movies to her credit and voiced literally thousands of commercial campaigns, animated series, animated movies and games.
