Actress and audiobook narrator Khristine Hvam says playing Peter Pan in a fourth-grade production may have foreshadowed her work in audiobooks. “I learned every part, every word of the play. My mother says I mouthed the lines to every single character. Maybe narrating audiobooks is definitely for me because now I can be every character in the play.”
“I was a London policeman for three years, straight out of school. I actually had 23 different occupations before acting,” says narrator Robert Ian Mackenzie. His deep, resonant voice sounds like it was made for the stage. “The acting idea wouldn’t go away, but I didn’t dare try it. I literally tried everything else under the sun. I was 31 when I finally quit the job I was doing and headed off to try and get my foot in the door, and then I got sidetracked with opera for quite a number of years.”
British narrator David Timson has garnered a bit of a reputation for recording long--very long--works of literature. His latest is Edward Gibbon’s six-volume DECLINE AND FALL OF THE ROMAN EMPIRE, which required copious research as well as many, many hours in the studio. (The final product is about six full days’ worth of listening.)
