A lot of people want to "break in" voice over, but ask if it is necessary to have training as an actor to be successful. There are many, many voice actors who didn't major in theater or film or any form of performing arts in college. There are many voice actors who didn't go to college at all! However, we think you'd be hard pressed to find a successful voice actor who did not somehow learn to hone their acting skills. Most of us do it by taking acting classes and improv workshops, which are also great ways to meet fellow actors and professionals currently in the field, but one of the wonderful things about acting is it only requires your dedication to giving life to the character, which you can do merely pretending to be Hamlet in your kitchen (or for voice actors perhaps closet is more fitting).
The skill of acting is fundamental to the work. Start where you are, and grow from there! For a more in-depth answer please read this wonderful article from SOVAS to help put it all into perspective:
