BIO
Deirdre Wolhuter is an award-winning actor who has extensive experience as a voice artist. As she is completely bi-lingual she is often contracted by clients who require the use of English and Afrikaans in the same copy. Her vocal styles range from warm and caring for baby products to authoritative for financial institutions and corporate clients; retail; conversational; or light and sophisticated for beauty products. She voices corporate audio-visuals, telephone-on-hold messages, documentaries and audio books, and is often heard in English and Afrikaans radio plays in various character voices.
Previous clients include The Baby Company, Old Mutual, Western Cape Government, Woolworths, Medi-Clinic, Elizabeth Arden and Korean Air.
