All About Old Lady Voices
The old lady character is an elderly woman. The definition of “old” can be subjective, with the label being applied to those in their 50s, 60s, or older, depending on the average life expectancy of the environment the character is in. The age of the old lady character can also influence the activities, attitudes, and behavior of the character. Old lady characters are typically seen as friendly, wise, and caring. Old lady characters may be grandmothers, retirees, or hold other roles common for that age category.
Life phases of the old lady voice character
The old lady character experiences multiple phases of her older life stage and can feel differently depending on how her life has gone. In the early phase of old age, the old lady character works less, may be retired, and spends more time building into her community, as well as engaging in leisure activities. In this phase, she is still healthy and independent.
In the middle phase of old age, the old lady character may need a bit more assistance, be more cautious of risks, and reflect on her life, either feeling contentment or unease about the future. This reflection can spark either a sense of completion and satisfaction or regret and bitterness. Old lady characters who feel satisfied are more often mellow, caring, and calm in the face of old age. Old lady characters who feel regretful may be more angry, irritable, or otherwise unhappy.
In the later phase of old age, the old lady character may be much more dependent on others for help and speak with a weaker voice, which gradually becomes softer and weaker throughout each phase. She may also be forgetful, prone to outbursts, or have a feeling of helplessness, while still having gratitude for those helping her in her last years of life.
