As a Malaysian-born Chinese who moved to Australia then to New Zealand then back to Australia again (and currently resides in Adelaide, South Australia), Edwyn Tiong possesses a uniquely accented voice that can be best described as "American with a hint of everything". Edwyn has been voice acting for years on the internet, and if you were a frequent browser of Newgrounds in the mid-00s, you would probably have heard him in almost every single game and animation on there. These days, he's been lending his talent to a variety of video games, including quite a few point-and-click adventure games! He's awfully tickled by that, as he grew up playing those and used to voice every character out loud to himself, because that was how you got voice acting in video games back then. Wow, he's old.
Edwyn can easily switch his acting from charmingly suave professional, to comically buffoonish grandpa, to Russian gangster thug and back again in a flash. Specialising in creating unique and memorable characters, he can switch from being the calm, coolly distant type, to the silly and weird comic relief, to the viciously ferocious uncaged monster and back again. This versatility has seen him star in a over a hundred web animations and video games over the course of twenty years. He also has a calming, intelligent and confident voice that's well suited for audiobooks, educational and instructional videos, commercials and business presentations.
In addition to voice acting, Edwyn is also an experienced sound mixing editor, having produced a variety of audioplays, audiobooks and comic dubs that shine from his sense of aural artistry. He has also worked as a punch up writer on a variety of productions, and is one of the lead writers behind the upcoming video game Freedom Planet 2.
“In the course of my career, I’ve met very few VO artists with the talent of Edwyn Tiong, his wonderfully unique voice and stunning characterizations have been the highlight of too many projects to count. He moves from character to character by utilizing all the little subtleties available in the voice actors toolkit. In short he is a master of his craft and he will bring all of that to the table in your project!” — Xander Mobus, Voice Actor "Super Smash Bros. Ultimate" "Persona 5"
