About Donna

Donna Grillo is a Casting and Voice Director that specializes in Animation Acting for cartoons, videogames and commercials. With over 500 episodes of produced television shows her work can be seen on a daily basis on iconic shows such as Spongebob Squarepants (which according to Guinness World Records, after 23 years on the air, is still the most popular children's TV show in the world), The Fairly Oddparents, Invader Zim, Barbie: Dreamtopia and a slew of other productions. When the pandemic hit she switched her focus from casting shows to producing voiceover demos and teaching voiceover acting. Donna felt that the quality of demo samples that were being produced weren’t serving the actors and since she knew what she was looking for as a casting director she took it upon herself to jump in to producing demos that truly gives producers and advertising agencies an idea of an actors skills. She then turned her focus on teaching voiceover acting and sharing the ins and outs of the voiceover profession. After years of actors telling her that they weren’t sure how to get in to the business and what was expected of them, she took up business consulting and has helped many an actor go from on-camera to behind the mic successes.
