Guy was a keen skateboarder when he was younger. Wearing baggy shorts and Vans shoes, it was obvious he'd lead on to a career in voice-overs... you think?
A big fan of Spitting Image, Guy was a fine mimic at school impersonating the teachers. This sadly also led to being well known by the headmaster. Guy started to develop his own characters and this kept him on the straight and narrow, for a bit.
His client list is pretty impressive and includes Apple, Coca Cola, Tesco, Walkers, Radio 1, SAGE, Wickes, ITV1, Betfred, Vodafone, RBS, Experian, CBeebies, Universal Studios and Disney.

It’s essential to note that one size doesn’t fit all. You know your target market of the product or brand, so it's essential to choose a voice that will work best with that audience.
Always ask for a short custom read of your script.
A demo or showreel is a fabulous example of the talent’s previous work, however, surely better to hear a voice with your words. It's all part of the service should you select Guy. Choose carefully.
"Guy Harris is a very nice chap. He knows what he’s doing, gets the job done and his rates are reasonable. In fact, he should put them up a bit” – VoiceoverGuy Harris 2017
Easy to get on with? Actually, yes. Working with you to make sure you are 100% happy with your voice-over. However, if you are not happy, moan too much, bad mouth him on Twitter or don’t pay... then things can get pretty ugly. There have been many clients that just... disappear. Be warned!
