Josie is an actor, originally from Somerset, now based in London.
She trained at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, where she was taught by renowned radio and voiceover specialist Marilyn Le Conte.
Unsurprisingly, given her BA in English, Josie loves working in audiobooks – a perfect opportunity to blend her sight-reading ability with her passion for creating distinct character voices. She also enjoys commercial voiceover.
Her past life in freelance audio production has given her a unique understanding of the client’s needs on the other side of the mic.
“Josie Charles is such a talented narrator. She nailed the accents. Her tone, nuance and pace were perfect. She was the perfect choice for this book” – Audible review for The Three Loves of Sebastian Cooper by Zoe Folbigg.
