Karen has worked as an actress and voice over for more than 30 years.

While training at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama she won the prestigious BBC Carleton Hobbs Award and so spent 7 months with the BBC Radio Drama Company, at which time her voice over career also began.

Karen’s work has spanned all the media, with theatre productions taking her all over the UK, and all over the world, as well as several West End shows and New York productions. Notable recent credits include Prospera (in an acclaimed open-air production of ‘The Tempest’), and the title role of Jackie in ‘Jackie, the Musical’ at the Gardyne Theatre.

On TV Karen has appeared in many series (most recently ‘My Mad Fat Diary’, ‘Cuckoo’, ‘W1A’) and as semi-regular Marie North in ‘Emmerdale’.

Recent voice-over campaigns include in-house work for Barclays and a TV campaign for Jergens moisturisers. Karen has also narrated new series on The History Channel and for Lion TV.
