A velvety, warm voice you can trust
She’s your laid-back neighbour with the good advice
Alexandra Metaxa has been a great fan of using her voice from a young age, and with gusto. This has thankfully come in handy in her career choices, as she now enjoys working as a fully-fledged voiceover artist from her own Broadcast Quality home studio. Though distinctly American, Alexandra has lived in several countries all over the globe. This lends her an international air and a clear, neutral American accent with excellent diction, understood by audiences worldwide.
Alexandra has a naturally warm quality to her voice. It is medium to low in register, has a natural cadence that brings projects to life and makes them feel real.
From e-Learning to AAA video game performance, Alexandra loves taking on a multitude of voiceover genres. She has performed for games such as Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey, recorded a 150,000-word drug e-learning module with all its wild pronunciations, narrated The Crying Book for BBC Radio 4, and voiced countless commercials and instructional videos. All arenas of voiceover are a welcome challenge.
Reputations start and end with clients, and Alexandra prides herself in maintaining excellent relationships and providing fantastic quality across the board. She has worked with both giants (SONY, BBC and Microsoft) and small independent production companies, and commits 100% to every project. Voiceover projects often have a quick turnaround – and as Alexandra’s home studio is fifteen steps away from her front room, she can get that file recorded and processed for you in under an hour, any time of day, and in any time-zone.
Coming from a traditional acting background, Alexandra studied Theatre, Voice and Television performance at the American Conservatory Theatre in San Francisco, the Royal Conservatoire in Glasgow, and Drama Studio London, in London. Although her conventional acting days are far behind her, she retains many traditional acting skills to bring voiceover scripts and characters to life. In addition to her performance background, Alexandra holds a Bachelor of Science with honors in Psychology. This comes in useful when delving into a character for a video game, animation, or ‘real person’ training scenario – and also when pronouncing complex medical terminology for e-Learning voiceover projects.
A voiceover artist can never have too much training. Even after a decade of experience, Alexandra continues to enjoy taking classes and receiving mentorship, both online and in person.
Alexandra’s broadcast quality voiceover studio is her pride and joy. It is where she goes to focus, work, and conduct directed sessions on a vast array of projects. It is here that she gets to collaborate with clients from every genre, and from all corners of the globe. In addition to her home studio, Alexandra enjoys working in production houses in both London and Los Angeles, and is always open to travelling for projects. She welcomes remote directed sessions via Source Connect, Skype, Zoom, Session Link Pro, Microsoft Teams or Phone Patch. Remote sessions are especially useful, as clients can direct Alexandra in real-time, and ensure they have the tone, pacing and final recording that they are happy with. Her studio is well-equipped with a Sennheiser MKH416 microphone, Audient iD14 interface, and a glorious double-walled Silver line Kube booth.
In addition to voiceover, Alexandra lives and breathes cooking, baking, sampling new foods, and feeding her friends and family. She also enjoys taking on too many crafts, including glass-work, painting, pottery and needlework. She loves travelling, reading, goofing around with her toddler, and spending far too much time on Reddit.
People Are Saying ...
Some may disagree, but Producers are human. On a good day the Director will choose a Talent that brings a smile to your face, your mind and body immediately relaxes in the knowledge that they have made not only an excellent artistic choice, but one that is going to make your life a whole lot easier. Alexandra is such a Talent. Our most recent job contained multiple medical terms like – zygomaticus, pterygoids, orbicularis oculi and occipitofrontalis. Alexandra narrated as though they were all in common everyday use. I highly recommend Alexandra particularly if you agree, life should be a breeze.
Fast turnaround and amazing acting! She took simple one-sentence call-and-response dialogues and filled them with emotional impact. I can not recommend her highly enough for any acting position!
Alex was great to work with and very professional. She was so quick on her turnaround, we were able to hire for a follow-up project in the same week. Excellent quality files and took direction perfectly. Can’t wait to work with her again!
We love Alexandra’s performance! Her delivery of explaining technical content is professional and maintains highly relatable emotion. Her audio quality is excellent, and she turned around files and revisions with amazing speed. We’re glad to have her as part of our brand!
Alexandra was able to get me the files I needed on the same day that I hired her. She was very professional and easy to work with and delivered a home run on take one. I would highly recommend working with her on any project you need and look forward to hiring her again.
