“When you die, the voice you hear in heaven is not Don’s. It’s God, trying to sound like Don. I wish he’d quit his day job…”
– Ashton Smith – www.AshtonSmith.com
The most amazing compliment I’ve ever received was from a producer at CBS to my agent and was just 5 words long: “Jeez, she’s the female Don LaFontaine”

Don is the Joack Nicholson of Promo. As Much for his talent and stature as for his ability to go after you with a 9 iron if you cut him off in traffic.”

“Don is not only the archetype for trailer narration, but his mentorship has been invaluable to me. He showed me that I could do this. He opened the door. I don’t know how anyone could possibly be more gracious than Don had been.
– Ben Patrick Johnson – www.voice123.com/benpatrickjohnson
“When I first moved to town, Don was the only “working guy” who spoke to me, let alone acknowledge my presence. But more than that, I took my cues from him regarding professionalism and courtesy with the people we work with on a daily basis. Don created the read we ALL do now, and for that among other things, I am eternally grateful.”

“Don is a colleague and a friend. His success is completely justified by his unique talent. In addition to being one of his friends, I am one of his biggest fans!”
– John Leader – www.JohnLeader.com
“Don LaFontaine is still what the others aspire to. It doesn’t become “real” until Don’s voice is married to the picture. Instant credibility, instant acceptance. His voice is welcomed in my family room any night of the week.”
