Bio

Pearl Hewitt is a British voice actor who has been living and working in Houston, Texas since 2001. At the grand old age of 40, Pearl gave up her elementary teaching job to enjoy being a housewife but during that time her then 12 year old son said something to her that literally changed her life. He asked her to read the next chapter of his Harry Potter book. He'd been listening to Jim Dale's wonderful narration of the audiobook but decided he had been missing his 'mam' reading to him. He sat listening, wide-eyed and mesmerized as Pearl brought the chapter and familiar characters to life. When she finished, he turned to her, literally cupped her face in his hands and said, very earnestly, "Mam, I think you should do this for a job. I think you're really good at it!".......... Dinggggg!!!..........Light-bulb moment..... and a sudden realization that he could be onto something. She was ready to pursue something new. A career as an 'audiobook narrator' sounded like a perfect fit.

Pearl has since developed a successful, full-time career as voice actor/narrator and has experience in all genres of voiceovers and narration, ranging from voicemail to videogame characters and everything in-between. The learning never stops though and she continues with voiceover educational pursuits to keep up with the ever-changing aspects of the industry and advances in technology. This calls for constant reading, participation in online training webinars as well as attending workshops and conferences with plenty of networking opportunities.

Pearl has learned from too many people to mention but notable influences have been: Pat Fraley, Dan Lenard, George Whittam, Paul Ruben, Bettye Zoller, Susan Berkley and Jim Conlan. But the list will continue to grow...
