Hello and welcome to my website. My name's Loveday Smith. Yep, that's my real name. It's Cornish. I'm not, I'm from Yorkshire!
An actor prepares
I trained for 3 years at East 15 Acting School in London under Maggie Bury. I love the collaborative process of working with a director to create a character but I also appreciate that sometimes you just have to get on and do it.
I'm currently based in Amsterdam. I'm in demand as a native English voice over but I'm also involved in devising, writing and producing new theatre work. I do a lot of independent film and a fair bit of presentation. If you are an avid TV-watcher, you might even catch me in the occasional ad.
I love using my voice. I love finding exactly the right voice for the project and making even the driest text come to life. I’m a great sight-reader and my 20 years experience as an actress gives me an enormous versatility. I can age up or down. My voice has been described as warm, natural and engaging. My natural accent is standard 'BBC' English with just a touch of northern, but I can adopt dialects from all over the United Kingdom and beyond.
Get in touch
Here you'll find a lot of info about me, and my work. There are film and voice clips on here but I'm also happy to schedule a face-to-face meeting. If there's a project you want me to be involved in, please get in touch.
