Carl Bishop, known for his work in Rainbow Six Siege, started out his career doing commercial voice over in a market that catered exclusively to a heteronormative audience, which posed challenges for him as an actor to get into a headspace that was completely alien to him. With his shift into working in video games he found that character work in VO, especially in games based on war, came with its own set of performance challenges, but ultimately was much more comfortable than the commercial realm of the time.
Here he discusses his experience in voice over, having seen great shifts in the industry from the '90s up until now with regards to representation and opportunities for LGBTQ+ actors. He also has encouraging advice for actors just starting out in VO and ways they can make moves that were not available before.
