Episode 68: Becoming a Voice Actor with Betsy Moore

Betsy Moore is a stage and film actress who also does vocal work for video games and commercials. Her expansion into audiobooks began spontaneously when Patricia McLinn’s previous narrator for her mystery series Caught Dead in Wyoming retired, and Betsy was tapped to continue the series.

Betsy has a regular role on The Baxters, a TV series for Roma Downey’s Lightworkers Media based on Karen Kingsbury’s faith-based novels. She has had lead roles in several short films, including this year’s The Odd Bird.

After performing at Shakespeare Santa Cruz, Betsy’s career in southern California began with the famed Tony ‘n Tina’s Wedding. Work with experimental writer/director John Sinner led to successful productions at REDCAT (Roy and Edna Disney/CalArts Theatre) and the New York and Amsterdam Fringe Festivals. Her solo show Freebird Goes to Mars won best avant-garde honors at the United Solo Festival in 2017.

Betsy will be performing this summer in Sonora, Calif., in the Sierra Repertory Theatre comedy production Ripcord.

Betsy and host Patricia McLinn talk about becoming a voice actor and what Betsy has learned along the way.

In Betsy’s words:

“I credit that to becoming even more familiar with my voice. … I’m making the decisions and directing myself in those moments so I’m learning a lot.” [25:15]
