Born in Kincardine, Scotland, Michael McCarroll grew up spending a large dose of his childhood engrossed in video games and cartoons from before his time thanks to a hand-me-down system implemented by his parents, much to the dismay of his older brother.
Having only a few select friends, a great deal of time was spent inside his own imagination, and creating a good many alternate personas. However, instead of heading towards a correctional facility, Michael instead made his way towards a career in acting.
Before that though, Michael was never a stranger to the stage, having performed in many different bands across several scenes and genres of music, he has always enjoyed and flourished in the lime light.
Engrossed by the process of recording, Michael became an audio technician, but having never forgotten the pleasure of being behind a microphone, instead of a mixing desk – he began to attend the Adam Smith college to study Acting & Theatre Performance and pursue the dream of becoming a Voice Actor.
“I want to give other people the same feeling I get when I hear a hero (or a villain) from my childhood. Those goosebumps you get when you just connect with someone on a deep level. That. That’s what I want.”
Michael has in the past played a drug dealer in BBC’s “Case Histories”, and can even be heard calling Simon Pegg and Andy Serkis a pair of “Cowardly Bastards” in John Landis’ “Burke & Hare”
In his day to day life, Michael can be heard as the voice of the omnipotent narrator in the YouTube series “Unfunny People In Cars Getting Stuff” – Along with producing his own content under the banner of “MiQ’s Mic”.
In his spare time, he enjoys reading aloud, performing music, and the occasional transatlantic trip back home to the UK.
