Luis Alberto Soto is an actor and voice over artist of Spanish and British heritage, educated at the Lycee Français de Londres and who gained his B.A and M.A at Goldsmiths College, London.

Luis left school early and worked in the U.K. incoming travel industry for a number of years. After rising to senior management level but unfulfilled in this position he chose to resign and retrain at Goldsmiths College in French and Drama and move into the less secure but enlightening world of arts and entertainment. Collaborating with fellow graduates of Goldsmiths, Luis worked with Heiner Muller in his London productions. Other theatre work includes his new translation of Jarry’s Ubu Roi, which was performed at the Young Vic. in London and at Peter Brooks’ invitation at the Theatre Des Bouffes Du Nord.

Luis also co-directed Gounod’s opera ‘Le Medecin Malgre Lui’ with the conservatoire de Toulouse and worked as ‘visiting actor’ at Rose Bruford College for the New X Theatre Company. Between acting work, Luis also performed as a stand up comedian for a number of years as a regular fixture at the Jongleurs and Comedy store clubs

His most recent television credits includes soap operas (Casualty/Easterners/Emmerdale/Doctors); T.V. dramas for the U.K. and U.S. (Line of Beauty/X Company); and films (Bridget Jones/An Education/Submerged.) His voice work includes film dubbing, video games, TV. narration, education, advertising and corporate.

He currently hosts the BBC Bafta winning interactive on line Spanish language series Mi Vida Loca. As Luis explains: Telling stories needs a voice, the voice needs a body to control it. This is what actors do. If your story is a plan, an idea, a question, then who better than an actor to help you explain, convince, ask.
