Have you ever heard of a screaming artist? Ashley makes money by screaming in movies and TV series

Ashley Beldon is a professional scream artist who spends hours of her day screaming into HD microphones to record different types of screams for movies and TV shows.

Ashley Beldon is one of those scream artists who can naturally produce a variety of screams that are recorded and used in movies and TV series.

Ashley recently wrote in the Guardian newspaper, "We're like people who take the risky business on behalf of the stars, doing difficult things that can damage an actor's voice. As a scream artist, you need to know the nuances between scream types and determine whether the scream should climax at points." certain, or remain constant for a very long time. 

Ashley's screaming talent was discovered at a young age, and her ability to naturally scream played a huge role in her getting her early film roles. At the age of seven, she got a role in the movie Child of Anger, which tells the true story of a girl who suffered abuse as a child and featured long scenes of screaming and shouting. Looking back, Ashley feels that it was her role in this film that shaped her career.

By the time she reached her twenties, Ashley Beldon had done over 40 movies and TV series and was already looking for a quiet life, so she switched to voice acting.The screaming artist's work begins in post-production. Sometimes actors just don't have the time to deliver a proper scream performance, and some don't have the vocal range to do so, and that's where people like Ashley come in, where they can decide what type of scream is best for a particular scene and have the vocal abilities to deliver a better result.

Ashley says there are a lot of different screams, like screams of fear, anger, screams of joy and success, as well as wails and screams of pain and face, but of them all, the ones that express sadness are the hardest for a screamer. Beldon says she doesn't practice screaming, it just kind of comes out naturally, depending on the scene she's working on. However, she sometimes screams up to eight hours into the microphones, leaving her feeling tired and exhausted, according to Audi Central.
