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…
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).
