California Lachlan Voice Over Artist Electric Lips productions is proud to be a part of the Anti Bullying production ZUG THE FRIENDLY ORC at ELP.
Cali was born in St. Thomas, Ontario, Canada, to parents Linda and Thomas Robroy Neal. Her mother, now retired, worked as a stenographer for a London, Ontario hospital. Her father was a former military man who later worked for the Ford Motor Company for over 30 years. She has an older sister Leanna Lynn Marie and an older brother Robroy Alan.
In her younger years, Cali wanted to join the military and fly fighter jets and consequently attended The University of Western Ontario to study physics and Applied Mathematics before realizing this was not her true passion.
On a soul-searching move to Victoria, British Columbia, Ian Fults introduced her to the world of voice over acting, when he got her an audition to do voice work for a well known supermarket chain. From there she moved to Vancouver to pursue an agent and build a portfolio.
While in Vancouver, Cali performed several voice overs, including cartoon pilots such as ZUG THE FRIENDLY ORC, and the launch of an online Gundam video game. In addition: upon the advice of her agent she began to do some acting and after booking her first acting gig, she was hooked.
She has now made Toronto her home base, where she continues to pursue her childhood dream of acting on the big screen and working as an animation voice artist.
She is excited to be a member of the Electric Lips Productions team as a “Go To” voice artist for upcoming projects and has been a huge part of the storytelling success of the first production: ZUG THE FRIENDLY ORC.
