Born and raised in Cape Town South Africa, Dennis Kleinman spent his early years creating short skits and using his voice to entertain family and friends. He was introduced to the creative world at a young age as he grew up in an artistic environment; his mother a South African abstract artist, and his aunt, an actress and radio personality in London. During his youth, he spent many summers in London attending theater, both fringe and West End productions while learning and gaining inspiration, all which added to and fueled his love of performance.
He attended the University of Cape Town where he studied Social Anthropology, Sociology and Psychology obtaining a Bachelor of Arts Degree. He emigrated from South Africa at the end of 1979 and arrived in Los Angeles. As he settled into his new environment and unsure of what path to take, Dennis began working in the business world, however, he could not escape the allure of performance and later on in life began taking acting and voice classes. Dennis has studied with Eric Stone at the Hollywood Actors Theater and most recently with Lynnanne Zager at Kalmenson and Kalmenson Voice Casting.
Dennis has worked as a voice actor for the past twelve years and has performed in supporting acting roles as well as internet and web based projects. He has a flair for delivering the message in an inviting manner and brings professionalism and an air of sophistication to the projects he becomes part of. His voice has been described as a World Voice spoken with a non-accented British inflection which brings a sense of international flair to the projects he does. He works extremely well with direction and is able to meet any challenges with absolute integrity and commitment.
