Andromeda Dunker has mastered the art of not being seen. The narrator of the reality series House Hunters, Dunker has one of the most recognizable voices in reality TV. And while the buyers and sellers may change, the narrator remains the same. Andromeda took over the reality series in 2009 and has been associated with the show ever since. In her years as a host, Andromeda has voiced over 1,835 episodes and is still going strong. Not only has Andromeda lent her voice in the regular series, but she has also been actively involved in several spinoffs. In this article, we take a closer look at the wiki-bio of Andromeda Dunker.
Andromeda Dunker is a secretive woman. She hasn’t revealed many details about her early life. She was born at Yale University in Connecticut. Her father, A. Keith Dunker, worked as a biophysicist at the University. Andromeda gets her unique name from her mother who wanted to name her daughter after the Andromeda Galaxy. Growing up, Andromeda moved to France where she became fluent in french. At age 15, Andromeda enrolled at Oregon University and started studying linguistics. She later moved to Seattle and started working towards a degree in drama.
Getting the role:
In 2009, Andromeda was suddenly called up by her agent and asked to send a voice-clip. At the time, Andromeda was enjoying a holiday with her friends in Portland. She was selected for the job and became the show’s third-ever narrator.
A career in House Hunters:
Andromeda took over the microphone in 2009 and is still running the show. For an actor working for as long as she has, it is surprising that she isn’t all over the media. When asked about her secretive life, Andromeda says,’Part of my job is to be in the background. “I’m not really with you, but I am leading you through this journey as a narrator. That’s kind of how I see it. If I were to come out more as a personality of my own, then it kind of breaks it. I’m not sure it would work as well’
She voices anywhere from 10 to 20 episodes of the series every week and is also auditioning for new roles now and then. When asked about the success of House Hunters, Andromeda explains,’Goldilocks formula, where you see three houses and this one’s too big, this one’s too small, and this one’s just right’.
Andromeda Dunker is currently married to Joshua Silva. She doesn’t prefer to talk about her husband or her married life. It is unclear as to how and where Andromeda and Joshua met. But the pair have been long time married and there seem to be no bumps in their marriage. The pair do not have children but have two adorable dogs: Sadie and Chloe.
Her very first interview:
It hasn’t been long since Andromeda has been on-screen. As she prefers to do much of her work off-screen, she was terrified of giving her first interview. She talked to Buzzfeed for the first time in 2017 which is the only interview she has ever given.
Leaving the show:
In the newest season of House Hunters, Andromeda wasn’t as active as the previous seasons. Instead of the previous format where she explained most of the things, the newest season of House Hunters allowed prospective buyers to explain their thoughts and progress as they toured around the house. This led fans to believe that she was leaving the show. However, Andromeda returned after a few episodes and as of 2020, she is still working as a narrator.
