Val in Emmerdale. Soft, soothing, husky & relaxed. Warm, caring, confident & passionate. Like any good Northern woman contains nuts, fruit & soul! Charlie Hardwick is an accomplished artist with a number of film credits including roles in Billy Elliot, and The Scar — the latter winning her Best Actress at the Monte Carlo Film Festival. Her voice-over experience is also varied having recorded many ads, trailers, documentary narrations and animations in the North East before her recent move down to London.
