The Young and the Restless star Brytni Sarpy recently completed an exciting new project that was something totally different for her. She stepped out of her comfort zone to bring a whole new character to life.

Brytni Sarpy Reveals How Finding Her Voice Changed Her

The Elena Dawson actor took to Instagram to reveal an exciting new project she completed — voicing a new character in the As Dusk Falls video game for Xbox. The post consisted of two videos featuring elements of the game and a long, heartfelt caption about what it meant for her to use her voice in this way.

“Bringing the voice of Zoe Walker to life has been one of the coolest things I’ve had the opportunity to do as an actor,” wrote Brytni Sarpy.

“The interesting and slightly ironic twist in my development as a voice actor is that my voice has always been my least favorite part of what I bring to the table as an actor.

“As a kid, I had a very raspy voice,” she continued. “As I matured, I developed trauma surrounding my voice- in a non-literal sense, I struggled with my ability to unashamedly speak and reverberate my feelings. My throat is such a sensitive chakra for me because of it.

“In college, it was also the area I struggled in the most,” she explained. “Being a Bachelor of Fine Arts, in acting major, I learned I did not have a natural theater voice… I had a ‘thin quality, lacking resonance, and proper diction.’ I became hyper-aware of it and tried for years to overcompensate for what I felt I lacked.

“But here we are today… pushing the boundaries of my perceived limitations and owning the nitpicked parts of my voice… and it’s empowering. Empowering to be included in such a genre-bending, exciting, and beautifully executed project. 🖤

“Hope you gamers enjoy it. I’ve got to get an @xbox now, so I can play too… thank you… @asduskfallsgame [As Dusk Falls] @a3artistsagency [A3 Artists Agency],” Brytni Sarpy finished her post.

The new video game is highly rated by users and reviewers, and it’s available now on Windows, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S. You can check out the videos in Sarpy’s post below.
