NICE TO MEET YOU
I'm Laurie Burke
A San Francisco native and comes from a family of professional actors and musicians (think “The Partridge Family” meets “This is Spinal Tap”). With an adventurous spirit and a genuine joy of all things creative, I decided to also turn my creative passion into a full time career. For over fifteen years, I have been a professional Actress, Voice Over Artist, Host and Singer.
With an un-quenching thirst to learn my craft, I have studied Dramatic Arts in London (Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts), Paris, Berlin, Los Angles and San Francisco (American Conservatory Theater).
My TV Credits include playing lawyer Alice Kaye opposite Hugh Laurie in Chance, staring roles in Wives with Knives and I (Almost Got Away With It) and numerous commercials for major companies including Blackberry, Volkswagen, Raley’s, Walmart, Metro PCS, Nokia and Wells Fargo. Currently I am playing Sheriff Laura Stevens in the Rosario Dawson based web series The North Pole.
My Film credits include “Mr. Invincible”, “The Mendoza Line”, “Redwoods”, and numerous award winning Short Films including voicing the main role of “Hisayo” in Roadside Assistance. Recently I worked as opposite to Adam Devine in the feature film “Jexi” - providing the “on-set” (behind the scenes) voice of Jexi.
Known as the “Original Voice of Google Voice”, I has lent my voice to such varied productions ranging from The Emmys to countless radio and T.V. commercials including Channel 36(L.A.), Cisco, LinkedIn, Kaiser Permanente, 24 Hour Fitness, Symantec, First Republic Bank, Wells Fargo, TV.com, and voiced for all Raley’s/Nob Hill commercials.
Theater credits include the role of "Amy" in Stephen Sondheim's musical "Company", "Gal" in the touring production of "Just for Laughs", and starred in countless Sold-Out performances as “Claudia Roe” in Lucy Prebble’s “Enron”.
For over eight years, I have been an On-Air TV and web Host for Common Sense Media, a company I am very proud to represent. I am also their go-to for Voice Over and Award shows.
As a professional singer, I have fronted many different bands of different genres as well as performed in many musicals, films, jingles and Voice Over projects.
It makes me always feels extremely happy and grateful for every opportunity I have been given and believes sharing my creative passion and helping others is my true purpose in life.
