What is the relationship between your speaking voice and your written voice?

Well, the way I read my poems is the way I like them to be read. Although I have heard them read very well by actresses who just seem to get the right idea. It doesn't work if the actress is too young, for example - I've heard occasionally my poems being read by an actress who sounded very young and sounded kind of surprised by everything and I suppose there's a slightly world-weary tone in my poems and in the way I read them which is appropriate.
