Daniel Watterson

English, Character, Smooth, Accents

"English born, and New Zealand bred, Dan has always had a passion for acting, music, and voice.  He comes from a big family, with big personalities.

Dan's life segued for a time into another kind of dramatics.  He became a court lawyer for 6 years, first as a commercial litigator, and then as a criminal prosecutor.  This career honed his mastery of the written and spoken word, which he put to good use in his 13 jury trials, developing a clear and authoritative speaking style. 

During his court years, he continued to appear in the Wellington theatre scene, until finally in 2013 he hung up his wig and gown in order to pursue his passions and dreams, and to commit fully to a professional career in the dramatic and creative arts.  Although already possessing a theatre degree from Victoria University, he returned to study drama full time, and has just graduated from The Actor's Program, which is quickly becoming one of New Zealand's most acclaimed training facilities for actors.  

As a performer Dan believes in the power of voice to unlock and transform the actor.  He delights in accents and character creation.  Still a boy at heart, he continues to regularly watch cartoons and delight in the voices that bring 2D characters to life. He is thrilled to be entering the voice acting world."
