Professional Voice & Acting Credits

Sue Scott is a professional actor and voice-over talent based in Minneapolis. She is well-known in the Twin Cities theater, advertising and voice-over recording communities for her versatility, wide-range, and talent as a character actor.

When Garrison Keillor returned to St. Paul with A Prairie Home Companion in 1992, Sue joined the cast as a radio comedy actor and has been with the popular public radio show ever since.

Originally from Arizona, Sue has lived in the Twin Cities since 1982. In that time, she has established herself as a skilled actor in the theater and commercial markets. Sue Scott has performed on celebrated theater stages throughout the Twin Cities and the Midwest. One of her most exhilarating theater experiences was performing the critically acclaimed one-woman, multi-character show, "The Search for Signs of Intelligent Life in the Universe."

In the recording studio, Sue is a veteran voice-over talent who can be heard frequently on national radio and TV. To learn more about how Sue Scott got her start as a film, radio, television and theater actor, read her Career History.

“Are you lazy? Do you find listening to voice-over auditions tedious and confusing? Does every voice start to sound the same? Then spare yourself the pain. Just hire Sue Scott. Sue is a whip-smart, funny, COMMERCIAL voice actor that can make even the lamest script (not yours necessarily, but other lesser writer's work) sound brilliant...every time. (And hey, if Sue doesn't work out, hire me. I've got a pretty good falsetto.)”
-Gary Bingner, President, Quasimodo Advertising

“In the over 15 years I have been recording Sue Scott for commercial voice-overs, I have been continually amazed by her versatility and range. Whether I've needed a straight, warm announcer type, a natural, believable character, or a funny, wacky not-so-average character, Sue has never let me down. She has a great ability to make even odd characters seem like someone you have met before, or at least would like to. She brings more to a session than just a great voice. She adds subtle touches to every script and is always a pleasure in the studio. ”
-Doug Dixon, President, Audio Ruckus
