Now that the public knows that he is a private person and is not a fan of putting his life out in the open, Dion has not yet come forth and acknowledged the existence of his wife, whatsoever.
The female admirers of Dion Graham can find solace in learning that they have a shot at being his girlfriend; or better yet, his wife.
This silence regarding his love life is a reason why he is rumored to be gay, thanks to the trend where people start to doubt the sexuality of a person just because he chooses to live his life away from the prying eyes of the media.
However, assumptions and reality are two different things, and that is why it is inconsiderate to jump into any significant conclusion until the man himself comes forward to either falsify or affirm the rumors and the claims people have been making about him.
Facts About How Dion Graham Got Into Voice Acting
Speaking of his career as a narrator, Dion revealed how he came to find his interest in narrating during an interview with UCM Web.
When he was asked how he started narrating books, he said,
A friend of mine asked me one Christmas to narrate James Joyce’s The Dead for him. I just read it into a cassette recording, nothing professional. We listened to it later in a dark room, and it was just a great experience. Since 2000, I’ve done more than 150 audiobooks. I like to do all kinds of stuff. I’m also known for a lot of young adult titles, which I enjoy doing. I narrated a book by the Dalai Lama. I’ve even narrated a Western.
Also, when asked about his process of telling, he confined,
The first thing I do, of course, is read the book. I love to read, so I’m like Pooh who fell into the honey pot. If there are things I don’t know, I find out about them—words or names or subject matter. And then I like to have a chat with the author. There’s always something I find out that will somehow enhance the performance. We go into a studio and record, which usually takes several days to do, depending on the book.
Moreover, the actor said he didn't find it challenging to keep his voice straight after finding different sounds and modes of speaking for different characters in a book. He added,
I can always record a character reference, but often they are already in my head. The characters ride with me—or maybe I’m riding with them!
These are the qualities the man possesses!
