We’ve asked our outstanding Hispanic Female Voice Actors – Rosi Amador and Issa Lopez – to a few questions about their political voiceover work so you can get to know them all better!
Tell us about your background, the languages you speak, and the accents you incorporate in voiceover.
I am originally from Puerto Rico, born to an Argentine father and an American mother of Puerto Rican descent. I was raised biculturally, speaking Spanish at home and English in school. Spanish was my first language and English came shortly after as a small child. I speak both without an accent, though I can easily incorporate a Hispanic accent into my English, when clients request it. In Spanish, I can add either a Puerto Rican or Argentine accent at will. My specialty and most requested voiceover “language” is as a neutral Latin American Spanish speaker. I also come from a full-time career as a Latin singer and due to this experience, I able to apply my breath control and musical phrasing in my narration of scripts.
I was born in Puerto Rico and came to Colorado when I was about five years old. Since I came here so young, my mom was always really adamant about making sure that I spoke really great English. Due to this experience, I speak very clear English and I am also able to provide a seamless neutral Spanish accent as well as a Puerto Rican and Spanish accent when asked for. This wide range of accents has really come in handy for me when working with my voiceover clients. Oftentimes, a company will hire me for both languages so their project can have a very familiar voice on both sides which is a super plus for me.
How does all of the above give you a unique perspective in connecting with diverse audiences and markets?
I believe the most significant value that I bring to the booth is my versatility and ability to record in both English and Spanish flawlessly, with no accent in either language. For this reason I frequently get booked for bilingual campaigns, enabling producers to book just one talent for both languages. Sometimes client request that I add some degree of Hispanic accent to my English, which I’m able to do convincingly, having grown up in Latin America. In fact, in order to take advantage of our ability to modulate our Hispanic accent to fit the target audience, my partner Brian (also a voice actor) and I developed the “Accent-o-Meter,” which allows producers to request the precise level of accent they need! It makes their lives easier.
Clients often relay that they book me because my command of Neutral Latin American Spanish gives them the widest range of options in terms of usage around the country since my accent is not from any particular region in Latin America. Even native speakers ask me where I’m from, as they cannot identify any particular accent or pin down my origin.
I’m also frequently booked to overdub commercials and narrations that were originally done in English and are now being localized for a Latin audience. The growing, diverse Hispanic population in the U.S. has increased the demand for voiceover in all the accents I deliver: from no accent at all in English, to slight or heavy Hispanic accents, to neutral Latin American Spanish. Vocally, I can put myself in the shoes of an academic or corporate leader sharing important messages or an immigrant agricultural worker passionately expressing their needs. This versatility is the key to my success and, I believe, what has made clients come back time after time since 2009 when I went into voiceover full time.
The jobs that I book usually involve me reaching out to listeners that are close to my age. I feel that my relatable sound and believable delivery adds immense value to my voiceovers.
When doing voiceover, what makes you feel joyful? What makes you feel powerful?
I am happiest when I am recording for causes I believe in. My mission as both a bilingual, bicultural voiceover talent and a musician is to use my voice to build bridges that promote cross-cultural understanding.
I am passionate about recording web videos, narrations, and commercials for organizations or individuals that share my values, promote peace, and stand for social justice, human rights, and anti-racism. My overarching goal is to lend my voice to foment social change so we can create a better world together.
I feel powerful when I’m asked to use my voice to stand for what I believe in. I am also thrilled to record children’s audiobooks, since early childhood education is one of my passions. Overdubbing films and other meaningful media in Spanish and Hispanic-accented English that speak to my beliefs is also a special thrill, since it requires acting chops to impersonate the original speakers. One of my biggest honors as a voice actor was overdubbing the voice of the indigenous Ecuadorian Waorani leader Nemonte Nemquino, recognized for her grassroots activism on behalf of her people, during a recent powerful documentary and concert called “Global Goal: Unite for Our Future.” It was streamed in June 2020 by Global Citizen, a social action platform for a global generation that aims to solve the world’s biggest challenges.
You know, every single day I get hired to predominantly be myself and there’s just no better feeling than to know that you are needed and are going to be used for a great purpose.
What are the political and social issues that you want to amplify and fight for with voiceover?
I am passionate about ending the separation of immigrant children from their families and finding ways to humanely reunite them; radical immigration reform and Latin empowerment, including protection for Dreamers; instituting policies to combat systemic racism, including community-based police reform, and quality healthcare coverage for all. I am also a fierce advocate of universal access to early childhood education as it’s been proven beyond a doubt that high-quality early childhood education gives a child a much better chance for a higher quality of life with greater opportunities. I would like to amplify any and all efforts to combat human trafficking worldwide as well as advocate for all efforts addressing climate change and moving us to become a greener planet. Finally, I am always inspired to lend my voice to any messaging calling for the end of extreme poverty and hunger.
I am proud to say that I voiced so many political campaigns throughout 2020 that helped us bring forth progressive growth and advanced us forward on a lot of subjects from healthcare budgets to women’s rights to border issues. That’s the joy of being a Latina voiceover artist – I get to voice all of these great call to action projects that I enjoy very much.
What advice would you give to new Latin actors starting out in voiceover?
Study with knowledgeable voice acting coaches or an acting coach and immerse yourself in learning about the acting side of voiceover. Be voracious about learning all the different styles in voiceover so you’re fluent in them and will know what approach to take when you get a script.
Visit websites like Global Voice Acting Academy, Gravy for the Brain (has a Spanish division if you prefer to learn in Spanish), or Edge Studio. Check out Voiceoverxtra.com for VO industry news. And make sure you study about the business side of voiceover. You are your own business and you must be familiar with every aspect of being an entrepreneur, from setting up a database to marketing, invoicing, branding and web design to maintaining a friendly, professional, and customer service-oriented relationship with your clients.
Above all, be kind. It goes a long way. Put yourself in other’s shoes and be genuine when you approach anyone to ask for help or to offer your services.
We are not going anywhere and the demand for our sound grows every single day. I am a true example of that. Every single year, my list of customers just grows and grows and being useful in this country is extremely valuable. Being bilingual is power.
