The Characters Talent Agency is Canada’s largest national talent agency and has sustained a specialized voice-over division for over a quarter of a century. Deep Green Entertainment, Inc. has the honour of running the Voice division in Characters’ Vancouver offices. Within our commitment to bringing stories to life, we endeavor to provide the most effective voice to tell each story we are presented with.
At the Characters Talent Agency, we work with a core group of actors whose talent we know well. Theirs are the voices that bring animated characters to life, narrate documentaries, sell and explain how to use products, guide you through museums and galleries, fill out crowd scenes in your favourite movies and television shows… and much, much more.
We look forward to working with you to match the right Voice to your Story in whatever format you choose to share it.
Caroline’s story-telling began to take shape while building rock houses and play-acting on the beach in Nova Scotia, and cutting her brothers’ comic books into paper dolls to give voices to. Her means of expression expanded, at 9yrs, when she was enrolled in a summer children’s theatre program, which provided an opportunity to collaborate with others to create stories and act them out on stage. Caroline advanced to leading this program, before going on to study theatre at university.
Having earned a B.A. (Theatre) and B.A.h. (English) from Acadia University, and developed an affinity for working with people and leading production crews, Caroline next adventured to Vancouver, where she actively pursued a position that would allow her to work with actors and production teams to collaborate on story-telling. Within months of her arrival, she was invited to assist Gail Murphy, the agent who ran the Commercial, Voice, Print and Industrial divisions at The Characters Talent Agency.
In 2003, Caroline decided to expand her knowledge and experience with a M.A. (Drama) from the University of Toronto, and soon after began work as a Voice Agent in the Toronto market. When Gail retired in 2007, Caroline was invited to return to Vancouver and The Characters Talent Agency, where she has since enjoyed developing one of the leading voice talent pools in Canada.
Though her professional career spans 20+ years, many would agree that Caroline Young has been contributing to the creative space, bringing stories to life, for many more.
Raised mostly in Canada, yet under the influence of other entertainment cultures, Annie has always had a passion for the performing arts industry. After establishing a successful corporate career in Taiwan and Japan, in 2013 the call to become directly involved in the business of the art of storytelling brought her back to Vancouver, where she promptly enrolled in the Entertainment Business Management program at Capilano University.
Combining her love of story with her business acumen, Annie connected with The Characters Talent Agency, where her multicultural background, professionalism, dedication and resourcefulness, bring a unique approach to assisting one of the most demanding and successful Voice-over departments in Vancouver.
Characters’ Voice Roster Talks is an initiative to encourage community at a time when a great deal of voice casting is done by mp3/self-tape, and actors do not bump into each other as often at auditions. It is a chance for those who have been doing this for a long time to soak up the energy of those who are getting started… and an opportunity for those who are getting started to connect with each other and with this industry that’s at once all around them and outside of their grasp.
The Talks encourage thought and discussion about the Big Picture in this industry. The Talks are a chance for Caroline and Annie to see, hear, and connect with you. The Talks aim to Educate, Motivate and Stimulate.
