Vanessa Lemonides

Vanessa Lemonides has been a professional performer since the ripe old age of six. As a child she appeared weekly on a televised musical variety show, did live concerts and musical theater, and eventually paid her way through Princeton with loads of commercials, soap operas, after-school specials and voice overs.

After graduation and a brief stint teaching in Singapore, Vanessa made her way back to NYC and resumed her professional acting career. She appeared Off-Broadway, in leading roles at many regional theaters and on a national tour. She then had two beautiful daughters, decided to stay in town and focused her creative attention on voice overs. 


She has voiced national TV and radio commercials, cartoons, animated films, audiobooks, promos, corporate narrations and is even the voice of Walt Disney World’s Fun Bus and Skyliner. She has extensive experience as a looper and has worked on hundreds of movies and TV shows. She’s known for her accents, animal sounds and voice matching abilities.


Vanessa is available to work with students of all ages and levels in studio at Hyperbolic Audio or remotely via FaceTime, Skype or just over the phone. She especially loves working with kids. Email her at to schedule your first coaching session.

Overall, Vanessa was the absolute best VO coach I could ask for. I started as a complete novice voice over actor, and she worked with me to help complete my goal of making a commercial demo. This included helping me set up my home studio, finding VO spots that worked great with my voice, finding my strengths and pushing me to progress on my weaknesses. Her feedback always felt honest, positive, and helpful. She made every lesson a fun and explorative experience. When it came time to pick the spots for my demo, she made great choices for me that showcased my range and talents.

Making a demo with the Shut Up and Talk staff went very smoothly, and I was so happy with the demo they produced for me. Their team was also very nice throughout the entire process. 

Vanessa also supported me after my demo was produced, in advising me of which agencies I should submit to. I even found representation the same day that I sent out my demo! 

I'm also very happy with the amount of work that I've booked since my lessons with Vanessa. I booked my first job about a month after we completed our lessons, during which Vanessa continued to support me in setting up Source Connect. 

I would recommend Vanessa to anyone and everyone who is looking to get any amount of experience in voice acting. You'll be in great hands!
