In today’s episode, I have the pleasure of chatting with my pal Nancy Linari about voice-over and particularly the world of Audiobooks!
Nancy began her career in Chicago with the famed improv comedy group, The Second City. She appeared in David Fincher’s Academy Award-winning The Social Network and Oliver Stone’s World Trade Center. Her numerous television credits include guest-starring roles on Bones, Brothers & Sisters, Criminal Minds, Desperate Housewives, ER, Frasier, Fringe, Grey’s Anatomy, and Modern Family.
On stage, Nancy has been seen in resident and touring productions at the revered Briar Street, Drury Lane, and Wisdom Bridge theaters in Chicago, and the Geffen, La Mirada, Canon and Victory theaters in Los Angeles.
She originated the role of Myrna Thorn/Emily Block in “Ruthless! The Musical” a schizophrenic combination of an uptight, pill-popping 3rd grade teacher having a nervous breakdown, and a sexy, hardboiled newspaper reporter with the hots for the leading lady – all this in Bob Mackie designed costumes!
She’s a popular voiceover artist for broadcast commercials, video games and animation, and starred as Morticia in the ABC cartoon, The Addams Family.
Nancy is also an award-winning audiobook narrator, whose passion for performing books comes in part from her childhood desire to play all the parts. And she doesn’t have to share a dressing room.
Some of her audio books are:
