Let’s be real, there are some days when you talk to Siri more than you actually talk to your friends (iMessage excluded). If you’re like the rest of us, you probably though Siri was just some fancy Apple computer generated voice.
The voice of Siri is a suburban Atlanta native, Susan Bennett. After about two years of living life in the shadow of Siri (just kidding, she was probably chilling in her garden) Susan has come forward and identified herself.
While Apple won’t confirm whose voice it is, an audio-forensics expert has studied both voices and says he is 100% certain the two voices are the same. Susan has been doing voice work since the 1970s and can be heard in commercials, on GPS systems, and even in Delta airport terminals, but Siri is undoubtably her most famous “role” to date.
CNN caught up with the voice actress where she opened up about the process and what made her come forward where she explained why she didn’t identify her voice sooner:
“I really had to weigh the importance of it for me personally. I wasn’t sure that I wanted that notoriety, and I also wasn’t sure where I stood legally. And so, consequently, I was very conservative about it for a long time.”
