Prep your skin like a pro for a flawless makeup application:
“When you guys have been asking me if I’m the voice on TikTok,” the text-to-speech caption said.
“Finally I can tell you guys: It is me,” Callaghan said in her authentic voice.
In the caption, she explained that she has an awesome ongoing relationship with TikTok.
“The coolest part for me is watching the creativity & awesome content that people are putting out there using my voice,” Callaghan wrote.
The video received over 29.4 million views. Some were in shock, but not everyone believed she was the voice they had heard for so long.
“I’m not convinced but just wanted to be here before it blows up,” someone commented.
“Omg I didn’t know it was a real person behind the voice until now…” another said.
“Finally the voice matches the face in my brain,” a TikToker wrote.
“Idk why I’m not 100% convinced,” a user replied.
“Am I the only one that watched 100 times to check if the voices matched?” a person added.
In an update, she explained that considering she is a voice actor for a living, lying about something like this would be pretty bad for her career. Then Callaghan gave the people what they wanted and spoke using her text-to-speech voice. The sound is uncanny!
