Beau, who describes himself as “an animated person for an animated job”, discovered he has been the voice of Fruit Ninja character Rinjin, for nine months now.

Having already provided voices to video game characters, cartoons and in advertising, Beau’s hopes of moving to Los Angeles and making his voice-over dreams come true are getting closer to reality.

He said: “The audition said nothing about what it was or who it was for so I had no idea that it was Fruit Ninja.

“Both the audition and the job were very improvisational - the whole thing required a lot of creative energy and as a result, it was all incredibly fun.”
