Orlagh Cassidy Best Voice / Best Audiobook 2014

Orlagh makes Best Voice & Best Audiobook on The Year In Audiobooks 2014 at AudioFile Magazine. She tops the list twice for Best Voice in Fiction & Classics for her narration of The Bees by Laline Paull and Driving With The Top Down by Beth Harbison. The Bees also scores Best Audiobook in the category.

"Narrator Orlagh Cassidy's enchanting performance enriches this debut novel about how Flora, a lowly sanitation bee, is able to rise through the caste system to help her hive survive attack, starvation, and destruction to meet a bright new future. Cassidy's vivid, engaging characterizations quickly transport listeners into the busy world of the bees, in which the queen rules and the priestesses maintain the hive mindset. As Flora transcends her destiny, moving up through the ranks to forager, Cassidy expertly conveys the bee's astonishment at each new discovery, curiosity about the outside world, and bravery when defending her sisters against attack. The success of this audiobook lies in Cassidy's respectful yet lively narration, which enables listeners to connect with the story on a number of levels." 
~ AudioFile Magazine ~

"Orlagh Cassidy gives each woman a unique voice, keeping a consistent pace and tone as the chapters alternate between each of them. Colleen, who is uncertain about her marriage, is the "mom" on the trip, taking care of the others while sorting out her own problems. Cassidy gives her a perky-sounding voice in dialogue, but her uncertainty shows through in her thoughts. Tamara, Colleen's teenage niece, alternates between being sullen and full of life, while Bitty's slight Southern accent differentiates her from the others. Overall, Cassidy provides the perfect voices for this fascinating story of living the lives we have instead of the ones we envisioned."

The Resurrection of Colleen Lively

Remember Colleen Lively played by Orlagh Cassidy from the web soap Empire The Series ... long time and devoted fans (thank you email subscribers, and fansite fans!) have been anxiously awaiting a comeback and were recently told the resurrection of Colleen is in the making for Season 5.

Colleen Lively is a complex character and after four seasons what do we really know about her aside the bits we've seen and have been told ... and most of it by her sidekick Valerie. Hold on to your hats (yes it's ok if you don't wear one!) and tune in to the roller coaster ride Empire Season 5 to see where the fan writers take her this season ... perhaps mountaineering in the everglades rescuing Valerie from a falling cliff, or maybe saving her from being run over by a run away train in Argentina. We might get lucky and actually get to know 'Colleen' this season. Orlagh's fans know she will knock her performance out of the ballpark. Stay tuned!
