About Susan

Susan Sheridan trained at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, winning the Malvern Prize for comedy, and is perhaps best known for her voice work on radio and TV - in particular the voice of Noddy in the BBC TV series of the same name. Over the years she has been commissioned for a wide range of exciting characters. Her many cartoons include Jimbo and the Jet Set, Moomin, The Family Ness, and Animal Shelf.

She created the role of Princess Eilonwy in Walt Disney's 25th animated film The Black Cauldron - now something of a cult film - and is part of the original cast for BBC Radio 4's Hitch Hiker's Guide To The Galaxy Radio Series where she played highly trained astrophysicist Trillian.  

Her theatre work includes a ground breaking production of Howl's Moving Castle at Southwark Playhouse, The Beggars Opera with Barbara Windsor, The Country Wife, Midsummer Night's Dream, her own one woman show The Merry Wife of Wilton, as well as many other touring productions from Ayckbourn to Shakespeare including a nationwide tour of Bedroom Farce and Abigail's Party. She even played Christopher Robin in the West End! Most recently she has appeared in The Kindness of Strangers for Curious Directive at the Norwich Festival and Short Plays By at the Soho Theatre.

Her extensive work in Television includes BBC's Macbeth with Corin Redgrave and appearances in Why Can't I Go Home, Rainbow, Bless Me Father and Agony. In 2012 she had the privilege of playing a nun in Midsummer Murders - suspiciously murdered in the chicken run. Ironic because she was the first chicken to die in the film Chicken Run...

Susan has her own voice coaching business - Professional Voice - with her series of mini books and CDs now for sale. 

Since completing an MA course in 2009 on Shakespeare Authorship Studies, Susan also gives talks and presentations on the authorship question - most recently at the Globe Theatre - and is currently writing a book to be published in 2015 entitled Shaking the Spear.
