Accents, Impersonations, Characters and Dialects
I 'm a native French speaker, born in Paris. I'm also fluent in Spanish, German, Greek and Italian.
I'm totally bilingual in English: I can speak it with either a subtle accent (like on the Xerox commercial, where they wanted a Continental accent), or a stronger accent, according to the needs of the production.
My accent in English is naturally very subtle and pleasant. It has a very international flavor... you can't quite tell where I'm from as I've also lived in England, Switzerland, Spain, Germany, Wales, Monaco and the United States. We can play!
Accents I do very well: French (Parisian and Canadian), Swiss, German, Italian, Greek,
