LEYLA TREBBIEN

When talking with Leyla, one thing became clear very quickly – one simply likes to hear her talk. And in Leyla´s industry, that is worth its weight in gold, because she earns her money with her voice.
Leyla is a successful voice actress.

But how does one actually get into the dubbing screen and media profession? Leyla is asked this question a lot, and she has her very own story to tell.

Initially Leyla saw herself in the music business, but through live performances, she quickly developed an interest in concert photography.

At a United Pop Open Day Leyla discovered how versatile the training options were and enrolled in 2 courses , choosing to study photography and music at the Frankfurt UPOP campus.

 

“I think it’s great how the POP meets you halfway when you have multiple interests.” Leyla mentions.

 

Soon after completing her training, the ambitious graduate took her first steps in the creative industry to test her newly acquired skills. The young dubbing artist chose to focus on a career as a voice actress. Through the creative network Leyla was already a part of, she introduced herself to studios and agencies, and explored the business with determination.

Leyla started her career with smaller roles consisting of a few sentences until she became more and more confident. She came closer to her dream job sentence by sentence while finding her own direction.

Since 2014, she has been working mainly as a dubbing artist for voice overs, advertising and video games. In addition to various TV commercials for Schwarzkopf, Innocent Smoothies or Always, as well as some leading roles in video games like Spiderman, Call of Duty and Tomb Raider, she has recently become the official voice of the Krombacher’s Fassbrause campaign. She will also lend her voice to the character “Jessie” in coming Final Fantasy Remakes.

“You don’t really know what roles your voice is suited for – you have to go out and try out, no excuses”

Trying is Leyla´s specialty – if you take a look at her website, you will discover a colourful mix of genres and roles: From commercials and radio plays to video games, telephone hotlines and image films, Leyla has tried it all.

Leyla is the perfect example of a student who learnt a variety of skills with United Pop and found her true calling.

The creative industry has the ability to take us in directions we hadn’t even considered. With so many skills lending themselves to different professions – flexibility and transferable knowledge can also prove powerful in expanding your network, allowing opportunity to find you.
