Audio Book Lovin BannerViviana, from Enchantress of Books and I am so excited to have Lorelei King on our Audio Book Lovin’ Series. 

Lorelei KingLorelei King is one of the most successful and accomplished American actresses working in the UK today, appearing in numerous films from Hollywood blockbusters such as ‘Notting Hill’ and ‘The Saint,’ to British independent films, such as ‘House of Mirth,’ ’24 Hours in London,’ and ‘Suzie Gold.’

Lorelei has appeared as regular and recurring characters in popular British television shows such as Chef, Cold Feet, Alistair McGowan’s Big Impression, Emmerdale and the saucy Mile High. She has also made numerous guest appearances in British comedies and dramas such as Jonathan Creek, Not Going Out, The Robinsons and Monarch of the Glen.

Once described as ‘the best known American voice on radio 4,’ Lorelei has recorded more than 200 programs for the BBC, including the Marx Brothers tribute, ‘Flywheel, Shyster and Flywheel,’ super-hero ‘audio movies’ including ‘Superman,’ ‘Batman’ and ‘Judge Dredd and classic American drama such as ‘East of Eden,’ ‘Ethan Frome’ and ‘A Thousand Acres.’ She appears regularly as a panellist on shows such as ‘Where in the World’ and ‘Wordly Wise’ and has hosted her own talk show, ‘All About Eve.’

Lorelei is a multi- award-winning narrator of audiobooks, recording the works of best-selling authors Janet Evanovich, Sue Grafton and Patricia Cornwell among others.

Her work in animation is extensive, and in America she provides the voices for ‘Wendy’ and ‘Packer’ (among others) in Bob the Builder.

Born in Pennsylvania and raised in Los Angeles, Lorelei now makes her home in London, where she lives with her husband, actor Vincent Marzello.  Learn more about Lorelei and her body of work here: WebsiteFacebook Twitter |  Goodreads.

    Great post! And love the sample audio. She is really talented. I don’t know much about Bob the Builder but I always did enjoy the sound pilchard the cat made. That would have been funny if it had been Lorelei

      Hi Wendy! (No wonder you like Bob the Builder! :D) I played loads of voices in the series, but Pilchard wasn’t one of them.. 😉 x

    I used to listen to audio books all the time because of my job. I don’t get to as much lately but I’m hoping to get back into them.

    Interesting interview….Lorelei sounds just charming…..I love listening to her audiobooks because the ‘voices’ always fit…….they sound just like I had imagined. I’ll be looking for more books that she does. Thank You.
