Do you think you have a "voice actor" quality voice?

I actually do have a "voice"  I have been told all my life I have a deep rich voice that would be good for radio.  I've also heard I have a face for radio too....lol

I don't know! I've never thought about it...I was once told I sound like a monkey when I laugh 🙊

My parents made me do speech and drama classes as a child, only because when I was younger, I used to mutter (from shyness) and people couldn't hear me...but I think some of you are being hard on yourselves, there is no 'perfect' voice! I read somewhere that the most requested accents for voiceovers in Britain are from Birmingham and Glasgow...and they are very strong accents to people from outside the UK....

When asked to provide an alternative explanation/description of a technical issue that had been presented by a tutor to a class, upon finishing my short oration, one female student blurted out loudly, (in the middle of a class of mostly guys), "omg I want you to read me bedtime stories!" whereupon her two girlfriends yelled out YES!!! We do too! 
If I had been taking a sip of coffee I would have snorted it straight out my nose I was so taken aback. 😳
"You speak so beautifully" she went on to explain, with her friends nodding in agreement.

Stunned and with the whole class, (including the tutor), in stitches of riotous laughter I replied "Well anyone can speak clearly, confidently and precisely if they put the thought and effort into it". followed by "thank you so much I am very humbled indeed".
I had to exit the class I was so embarrassed and later in the lunch room the tutor jokingly asked "What's the story with you and the highlands girls"? huh? ^.^ HUH? and all the other teachers were like "ello.. ello.. ello.. wots all this then"?! 😮😲😋 
And I'm like "omg give it a rest will you" laughing as they're all respectful married family men.

But I only have an "ordinary" voice really. 
It's how you use it and what you say I think.

I think I have a clear voice with a good delivery. At least that's what my supervisor said when I used to talk on the phone for a living. I was pretty shy and not very talkative growing up so taking a job with constant talking really helped.
