had the great pleasure of working with Asif Samad as his voiceover coach through Such a Voice for several months. He is a very strong talent, with good acting skills and great instincts. He also takes direction extremely well. Asif has a very marketable sound—a lovely British accent which is quite versatile. He can go from Dudley Moore to Anthony Hopkins in the blink of an eye. Intelligent, fun and very easy to work with... I would highly recommend Asif Samad to any voiceover client.”
