The Personal Narrative
Deanna Anthony is an award-winning actor, vocalist, an Audie Award Finalist audiobook narrator, a director, host and voiceover artist that has appeared in theatre, independent and industrial films, tv, commercials, live events and concerts, on podcasts, in narration, animation and other voiceover.
With a background on stage, on camera, and in the booth, storytelling is at the essence of what she does every day. Bringing a broad range of skills, effervescence and conviction to her delivery process, Deanna's theatre background has prepared her to use her voice to bring life to art. She enjoys the collaborative creative process, and is comfortable self-directing and director others, when and as needed.
An original southern belle, with a citified education, Deanna’s voice has been described as warm, vibrant, conversational and empathetic.
She is a former beauty queen, on a mission, and with stories to tell.
Whether delivering inspirational, humorous or dramatic tones, Deanna remains committed to the text using her over 30 years of experience as an actor.
Audiobook narration to date includes, but is not limited to:
Non-Fiction (Biography/Memoir, Business, Children's, Educational, Environmental, Finance, Historical, Justice, Political, Pop Culture, Public Policy, Self Help, Social Sciences, Sports, Young Adult), Mystery (Cozies, Psychological/Thriller), Romance (Contemporary, Closed Door / Open Door, Rom Com, Paranormal, Romantica, Sci Fi, Southern, Sweet, Urban, Western), Literary Fiction, Domestic Drama, Humor, Women's Fiction, Children's Literature (Kids, Middle Grade), Teen & Young Adult, New Adult, Fantasy, Science Fiction, Horror, Multi-Cultural, Multi-Racial, Motivational, Inspirational, Poetry, Religion & Spirituality, True Crime, Graphic Novel, Apocalyptic and Gothic Horror genres.
Extensive acting training in drama, comedy, character work and scene study equips her with the skill to tell a story from the perspective of an author, to become each character, while intense vocal training gives her the strength and dexterity to portray a wide range of multiple personality and varying gendered and non-gendered characterizations.
When not recording, filming or performing live, Deanna teaches voice technique and performance for stage, on camera and in-studio auditions and production, enjoys cooking, baking, quilting, traveling domestically and internationally, dining, reading and writing with family and friends, and a good superhero moment.
During the 2020 pandemic, she also hosted her own digital talk show called “Afternoon Tea with D” and is currently featured on The Narrator Roundtable Podcast.
Deanna has a personal professional home studio, with remote capabilities and is also available for in-studio recording throughout the Greater Los Angeles area.
Industry people have long said, “She’s the real deal”, “You want someone with an impeccable work ethic and spirit for what she does...this is your girl” and many have simply said, “hire her”.
