Voice Over Artist
welcome! And congratulations for steering clear of the Erin Hunter Warrior Cat fan sites!
An actor from Los Angeles, Erin is a rare creature (like the pink fairy armadillo!) She trained at UCLA and LAMDA and spent a study year abroad at Trinity College Dublin where she was devastated to discover her Irish name is only found on packets of instant soup.
An experienced stage actor, Erin's been touring her one woman show, Surfing the Holyland about a wide-eyed American who survives a move to Tel Aviv by learning to surf with 12 comedy characters, 4 ukulele anthems and a whooole lotta chutzpah! From London to Brighton, LA to Tel Aviv and through the Pandemic (somehow!) Most recently, after performing at Edinburgh Fringe (Underbelly) the entire month, she is shattered. However she did land a nomination for the Popcorn New Writing Award with the BBC alongside rave reviews from press and audiences alike: 5 STARS "you are going to love this show." (West End Evenings) "a definite must-see...Erin oozes charisma" (Deadline News) “the themes here are so universal, the narrative so idiosyncratic and Hunter so engaging that it’s all as fresh and sparkling as a dawn surf in the Mediterranean.” (Broadway Baby), "a master of multi-roling" (Ed Fringe Review), "a powerhouse...the next Phoebe Waller-Bridge." (Elizabeth, audience).
Erin has trotted the globe performing in over 50 plays in London, Dublin, New York and Los Angeles. In London, Erin has performed at Theatre Royal Drury Lane, Soho Theatre, Bush Theatre, Southwark Playhouse and Arcola among others. She was nominated for a Best Actress award for her role as Kate in web series A Quick Fortune at the Bilbao Festival. Erin has also performed in two runs of the world’s longest running sketch comedy show, Newsrevue. With a focus on British news, it’s no surprise that Erin is one of the only Americans cast. Ever. But please don’t ask her to do Glaswegian because it won’t be pretty.
Erin is ½ of Hunt the Vigan, "the world’s funniest comedy duo" (according to their mothers.) Creators of viral comedy parenting video Boobies in a Box, it has amassed a whopping 8 million views and been featured in global press including The Huffington Post who called it “hilarious”. The pair originally united to create a retro screwball comedy web series, A Quick Fortune, which was selected for 10 global festivals including Raindance. It won a screenwriting award at the DC Web Fest and was nominated for multiple awards. They've also penned a few TV pilots, with great interest for their latest creation, Judged, about a mommy influencer in court-ordered parenting classes. (AKA traffic school for parents).
Other credits include comedy foil Stephano in an adaptation of Shakespeare’s The Tempest with renowned theatre-makers Teatro Vivo; Annie Londonderry in Miles Apart Together with Papersmokers Theatre; and the UK premiere of dark American play Companion Piece with Concorde Theatre. She’s worked with acclaimed physical theatre ensemble Tangled Feet, Dash Arts and Firehouse Productions.
Erin is also a busy voice over artist who's worked on everything from high profile TV and radio commercials to video games, audiobooks, animation and regular TV promos. Erin has extensive dance training including eleven years of ballet (think Black Swan minus the schizophrenia and death) plus a sprinkling of other styles including African, swing, contemporary, jazz and capoiera.
Look at you! Makin' it to the bitter end. Time for a well deserved glass of vino, even if it is 8am (it's happy hour somewhere)!
