Thomas Ferranti (aka Spike Beasley) is an actor and voice-actor focusing on comedic and dramatic roles for features, television,the web, etc. He has a wide range of voices and unique facial expressions, reflected in the variety of roles he has made his own; St. Peter at the gates of heaven (with a dead-on Ed Wynn imitation), a voice-compromised friend, a nurturing new-age psychic, the voice of an evil masked villain, and more.
Before becoming an actor and voice-actor, he produced, hosted and was featured in a 20-episode half-hour local L.A. television series, produced and hosted radio programs, was the lead-singer in a performing and recording rock band, was the writer and artist for over 50 original comic books and has performed hundreds of shows as a puppeteer.
When not acting or voice-acting, he continues to write screenplays, produce music videos and other creative projects.
