Helen Duff: Audiobook Narrator
Featuring Helen Duff: Audiobook Narrator
Comedy award-winning, critically acclaimed and socially conscious clown, Helen Duff started performing comedy in 2014. Her first solo show, Vanity Bites Back, won a Fringe First nomination at the 2014 Edinburgh Fringe Festival and was subsequently selected for the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Adelaide Fringe Festival and Perth Fringe World. A clown cookery show about anorexia, it won a Pick of the Festival Award at VAULT Festival, London before completing a 5 star rated tour of regional theatres across the UK. The same year, Helen was also a semi-finalist in the So You Think You're Funny Awards. In 2015 Helen was named a Finalist in the Brighton Comedy Festival 2015 Squawker Awards and was a Finalist in the Amused Moose New Act Award at this year’s Edinburgh Fringe 2017.
How did you prepare to narrate Then She Was Gone?
I generally just read the book, look out for any rogue accents I need to brush up on, and then hit the recording studio. It's fun to keep the preparation light so that the thrills of the narrative still translate into an energy in your voice when reading. This book record fell on my birthday and I felt deeply disturbed by the passages through which I had to give voice to a sadistic killer - my birthday dinner wasn't quite the same!
Other books narrated by Helen:
I read a 4 part series by Deborah Challinor following 4 women on their journey via the convict ships to Australia at the beginning of the 20th Century
I'm half way through narrating a brilliant series called The Red Sister by Mark Lawrence which is fantastically crafted fantasy
and have recorded several other cracking Lisa Jewell titles:
