Karla Wren

Warm, wry, honest, funny-American accent, but also proficient at RP British.

Hi! I'm a Chicago-based narrator and EMC actor. I have my Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology and am an avid reader. I have extensive training in Shaw and Shakespeare, as well as education in on-camera and voiceover work and understand the importance of bringing text to life. I like to do a little bit of everything, but I think I excel at Horror, Mysteries, Young Adult books, and stories that have smart female characters. I am proficient with an RP British accent and I meet with a dialect coach weekly. Please feel free to reach out to me with questions!
