Michelle Sundholm Gaming Voice Over
Every video game is different. A gamer can explore new worlds, solve puzzles, execute missions, spend time in space or other fantastic environments. They can experience stories from perspectives that differ from their own, other genders, other generations. Some games rely on elaborate narration, others prioritize character storylines and journeys. In today’s video game market, there is literally something for everyone who wants to escape into a game. A crucial element in a game’s success is the voice acting.
Michelle Sundholm is the experienced voice actor you want to rely on to bring your game’s characters to life.
A Lifetime Of Bringing Words To Life Through Spoken Word and Music

For as long as she can remember, Michelle has had a passion for bringing words to life through spoken word and music. As a professional singer for over 20 years, Michelle has a keen appreciation for what a microphone does for the voice. It brings out every texture and emotion. It is the sidekick to the voice, the partner in crime, so to speak.
And it is this expertise in front of a mic that Michelle brings to her work in video games. She is able to take direction quickly but also keeps the character true to what her voice brings to life. And it is this unique authenticity in her character portrayals that led Star Ghost game developer, Rhys Lewis with Squarehead, to email Michelle directly and ask if she’d like to voice his upcoming project.
Michelle Is a Trained Voice Actor With A Love For Gaming
Michelle is a trained voice actor and a firm believer that actors are always evolving as people and talent and so it is always important to have resources and coaches to go to hone the craft and get a “second set of ears”, no matter how much experience a career brings. Michelle has trained with some of the best in the industry, notably Melissa Disney, J. Michael Collins, Dave Walsh, Joe Cipriano, Mary Lynn Wissner, Jeff Howell, Townsend Coleman, Scott Parkin, Pat Fraley, and Jackie Shriver and has been able to bring their advice and training with her to various roles and counts them as her trusted allies as she pursues new heights in her career.
Thanks to her early work with this team, Michelle is able to comfortably breathe life into various characters – from the warm yet quirky mom to the tough as nails soldier, to the omniscient guide and storyteller and any shero or villain in between.
Michelle also has a love for gaming reaching back to her childhood when Nintendo was a big part of her life along with Mario Kart 8, Pacman, Galaga, and other classics. As gaming has evolved, she appreciates how games can take a player from one world to the next and the complex challenges they encounter at each level. And as a singer, the epic music and brilliant designs capture have always captured her attention. Combined with the voice over, they really bring each game to life in a whole new way.
