After studying Drama & Theatre Arts at Birmingham University (UK), in 1988 Sharon Fryer moved to Italy where she pursued her passion for theatre, film, TV, and voice work. Since then Sharon has collaborated with all major studios in Northern Italy, assisting in the making of numerous English language productions as a speaker, voice-over artist, actress, dubbing artist, linguistic consultant and dubbing director.
Sharon has given her voice to prestigious documentaries in all fields including science, literature, nature, history, geography, religion, and especially education. As a mother tongue English speaker she is often chosen by many Italian and international companies as their official voice to represent them throughout the world via websites, trade shows, corporate videos, company in-house videos, tutorials, and advertisements. Sharon has worked for all of Italy’s major publishing houses as a voice artist, giving life to those English language DVD’s, CD’s and Apps which form a vital part of English Language learning for the national curriculum. Sharon’s voice can often be heard in the most unexpected places, such as in the tunnels of Frejus and Monte Bianco, providing useful information to travellers, on Meridiana airlines, on GPS systems, on automatic answering services, on all Vodafone cell phones throughout Italy for the last 15 years, and even during the 2006 Turin Winter Olympics when Sharon was the official English speaker presenting the opening ceremony and live medals ceremony every evening during the event.
There are numerous museums and tourist sites which Sharon has given her guiding voice to including the Reggia di Venaria, the Italian Risorgimento Museum, the Martini Museum, the Barolo Museum, and many more, not to mention temporary and permanent art exhibitions, even providing information to the pilgrims during the Ostension of the Holy Shroud.
Sharon has also appeared in films and TV programmes when they need an English speaking actress. Take a look at her photo gallery and a few film clips which will certainly give you an idea of what she has been involved with recently and in the past.
