Netflix’s new E-Learning show, History 101, may have only just been released but viewers are wondering who the shows soft-speaking narrator is?
In any explainer or E-Learning show, the narrator is vital for keeping viewers engaged and switched on. It can be the difference between a viewer learning something new and sending them to sleep.
However, it sounds like Netflix hit the nail on the head with their voice-over artist in the new History 101 series, Natalie Silverman.
“The show needed a funky, modern but authoritative voice, and Natalie certainly fit the bill!” – Gabriella James, Junior Production Manager, ITN Productions
She describes herself as having a “warm and friendly” tone with a “natural, credible, friendly, relatable” style, but who is she?
