Thanksgiving is one of those holidays that remind you of what’s top of mind in the food chain of Life to be thankful for: Family, good health, good friends, Cheetos. There’s another item I’d like to add to the list: Being a voice actor. In a small, quiet space, be it a closet, studio, or if on the road, a pillow fort in the backseat of a car, with our imaginations and beautiful voices, we get to create a vision from a script that someone entrusted us to bring to life. James Dean said “being an actor is the loneliest thing in the world. You are all alone with your concentration and imagination, and that’s all you have.” Well, I’m thankful for being a voice actor in Las Vegas. The voice over community is very strong here. I’ve been told by others across the country that they wish they had the gift of support we have (if you don’t think we do, you’re just not taking advantage of it!). I know at least four people that I can call (or text) and talk about my audition fears and insecurities, or that I just booked an amazing job. They will listen, console or congratulate me, with no judgement. Because we’ve all been there. We’re a family; a great big crazy, wacky bunch of voice actors who love our craft and love each other, whether we like it or not. Happy Thanksgiving, TVAS Family!!
