Over two decades in Media, Kriss Venugopal (Kris Iyer), has his expertise in Radio, Television, Stage, Scripting, Acting and more. As a Jock and Programming Head in three languages, Radio has been his driving force for over 11 years. Web, Design, Branding, Voice training and copy-writing kindle the fire in him.
Though he has been an actor in serials, movies, and short films which came his way, Kriss still waits for the right character to bring out the best in him. Looking forward to focusing on acting as a career, other than being a Media & Event Consultant in Dubai and a Voice Coach / Artist.
Currently pursuing a degree in Law, he is a Graduate in Civil Engineering and Post Graduate Diploma in Environmental Protection Management, a Diploma in Computer Applications, and a Masters in Applied Psychology, a student of Transactional Analysis and a Clinical Hypnotherapist.
He sees a lacuna in actors who would fit into middle age characters in South Indian Cinema and prefers to give the best to bring out of the roles and in him. His aptitude to handle different languages with ease in its natural spoken style would be an added advantage in being a Voice Artist, Actor, and Dubbing professional.
(His looks and tall stature (6’3”) would make the characters stand out well. Being a voice coach/artist, and a dubbing artist, he is adept in dubbing in different languages and accents, to suit the character.
