Bahni is a very talented individual. She’s had roles in TV shows such as Cold Case, ER, Cossing Jordan, Judging Amy, Six Feet Under, and Without a Trace. She played Ensign Swinn in 2 episodes of Star Trek: Voyager.
She is a member of the Cornerstone Theatre Company in Los Angeles California, and performs regularly there when not on another project. She has had numerous roles in movies such as Crossroads, Brokedown Palace, Rain Without Thunder, Girls in Prison, and Malcolm X to name a few.
While not born or raised in the South, she has a very nice take on Southern accents. Her tastes run toward listening mostly to Women’s Literature. While a late arrival on the Audio Book scene, she has quickly become an avid fan. I’m sure that many of you can relate, as do I.
Solo Narration – Female 2015 Audie Award winner for the Yellow Crocus.
I found Bahni through a random audio book selection. The story, ‘The Quaker Cafe’ by Brenda Bevan Remmes, I would classify as a Drama. It’s about an original Quaker town gradually being overrun by modern times. It’s also the story about an old secret being revealed, and how secrets affect all those around us.
It’s a compelling story, and Bahni gives a noteworthy performance. If you haven’t heard a Bahni Turpin narration before, give her a try. She has a wide variety to choose from. See below for a sample list of other works by Bahin Turpin.
And as always, Happy Listening!
