Have you ever been surprised by how someone looks after only hearing how they sound?
I recently auditioned for a roll in a radio drama podcast. The character’s physical description was essentially me: a white male my exact age, height and weight. After listening, the producer wrote “Great audition, but voice does not fit.”
I’m curious as to what about my voice did not fit when I matched the physical description so thoroughly. My guess is that I sounded too young for the character, or perhaps too polished…if I had only started smoking in high school I might have been a better fit!
