Marilla Wex at Pirate Radio
British voice artist Marilla Wex fell in love with voice work thanks to her teacher at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School, the legendary Francis Thomas. It is he whom she holds personally responsible for not only beating the Birmingham accent out of her, but also teaching her a nice RP which helped her to win a Gold Crystal Award for the best radio commercial voiceover in Canada.
The award-winning spot
Marilla is a regular member of the loop group on Reign (pictured left at Tattersall Sound and Picture with Martin Gwynne Jones and Allan Cooke) and also looped on Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.
She enjoys the combination of sensitive improvisation and period style that often comes into looping.
