Biography

Brynley has a background in theatre and comedy and works regularly as one of the core cast members of the TV sketch show "Funny Girls". She was brought up watching Jim Henson movies, so enjoys and excels in doing quirky character voices. She has voiced a number of sketches for TV3's "Funny Girls" and "Jono & Ben". Brynley has an upbeat, energetic, feminine voice but can also get right down into that low register for warm, motherly roles.
