Liisa Kallasmaa-Davis has been performing in theatre for 10 years, and is extremely excited to be making her voice-acting debut in The Destiny of Special Agent Ace Galaksi thanks to Maissa, and her amazing castmates. Her theatre credits include Smee in Peter Pan, Mrs. Potts in Beauty and the Beast, and Jellylorum in CATS all with the Unionville Theatre Company, and she will be portraying Annas in Markham Youth Theatre’s 2012 production of Jesus Christ Superstar this fall. She is also a graduate of Humber College’s Theatre Production Program.
Liisa has been listening to Radio Shows and Audio Books since she was young, and researched Foley for Radio Dramas while in College so she loves many different fields of the genre. She was first introduced to “SciFi Audio Drama”, when she heard Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s The Lost World done by Leonard Nimoy and John de Lancie (both from television’s Star Trek), and their company “Alien Voices”.
She believes Audio Dramatizations are an important link between reading a book, and watching films/television: “It is a creative and exciting medium where you are being told the story, but your imagination is still free and encouraged to create the world that you are listening to. It is also a challenge for actors having to create characters using only their voice; it allows them to stretch themselves.”
