Karen Strassman has been privileged to have a wonderfully rich career as an actress, and is extremely grateful for all her years in voiceover. She has worked in nearly every aspect of the VO industry: radio and TV commercials, animation, narration, documentaries, promos, audio books, celebrity voice - matching and voice replacement, internet media, video games, talking toys, dubbing, looping, ADR....

 

Major clients have included Disney, HBO, Sony, Universal Pictures, Warner Brothers, Microsoft, Nickelodeon, Nicktoons, Cartoon Network, Sci - Fi, Showtime, The CW, CBS, Klasky - Csupo, Viacom, THQ, Bandai, Atlus, Volition, Namco, Pioneer, Konami, Vivendi, VU Games, Square Enix Co, Blizzard, Electronic Arts, Ubisoft, Technicolor, Disneyland, Lancôme, L'Oréal, Clarins, Vidal Sassoon, Acura, Kia, Hallmark, Mattel, Diet Coke...

 

As one of the leading v.o. talents in Paris for many years, Karen could be heard as the voice for Air France, Euro - star, Disneyland Paris and for audio tours of the Louvre and the Musée d'Orsay, among many other things… She's dubbed Juliette Binoche into English and Meg Ryan into French!

 

Not only is she fluent in French (you may have heard her as the re-curring French woman’s voice on the walkie talkie on the t.v. series Lost), but being a dialect coach, Karen performs a wide range of accents. A few years ago she did a European campaign for Lancôme with a British accent, actually beating out real Brits for the job.  Karen loves to sink her teeth into all kinds of dialects; Slovic vampires, Russian spies, German commanders, an ancient “Nordic Wraith”, South African lawyer, grandmothers from all corners of the world including from Alabama, China & Ruwanda, a male Mayan dwarf chanting in Yucatec... are all fair game.

 

All in all, Karen is pretty darn versatile. She has created hundreds of characters of all shapes, sizes, genders, ages, and species, from classic Disney princesses to talking jellyfish and shy tadpoles. She even re-voiced a real parrot (the producers ended up keeping her version, deciding it was more "realistic" than the real parrot itself). She also voices tons of little girls and boys, (including re-voicing a real 5 year old girl with asthma for a recent feature film).

 

Karen feels really lucky to be doing what she loves... 

This business thrives on creative collaboration and Karen enjoys bringing her passion, humor and joie de vivre to every project.
