Charlotte Chiew is the ABC Voiceover Girl. That’s A for American-influenced, B for British-educated, and C for Chinese-descended. Which explains her indistinguishable accent. Some people call it Mid-Atlantic or transatlantic. She says, it’s kinda-American-sort-of-British, with an optional Asian lilt.
She has 20+ years of professional actor training and theatre/film/TV credits, and her voice is undeniably versatile. She specialises in narrating and producing children’s to YA books and non-fiction.
