Accents, Impersonations, Characters and Dialects

As a classically trained theatre actress I have specialised in voice production and have a broad vocal range both in terms of character and accents/dialect. I am as comfortable producing vocals for documentary and promotional/publicity projects, as I am for readings of Shakespeare, Austin, and of children's story books. Whether it be for a direct, clear transmission of information, or for a character-rich performance, comedy, classics, or contemporary drama, my voice is capable of adapting to suit clients needs. From upper-class aristocratic British female of any age to London street working class, Chav to Dickensian charwoman.

My Voice Experience

My most recent recording work has been for locally produced documentary projects here in France. From commercial industrialised production techniques (Tournus Equipment) to organic farming projects (Liberty Pig) I have been involved in a vocal, editorial and translator capacity, 2006-12. I have been frequently approached for consultation and translation purposes and to provide anglicised French voice overs for an International market. In 2002-3 I produced video documentaries about the arts and culture of the silk Road, in French and English. Previous recording work in the UK has included fairy tale narration for a childrens projects by independent film maker Suzanne Gielgud, 2007.

My Training

Diploma in Theatre Arts from the London Studio Centre, 1991, trained under Iain Dewar, Jane Atkinson, Veronica Duffey. Workshops and masterclasses at the Actors Centre, Tottenham Court Road, between 1991 and 1993. Theatre work includes: national tour of Bob Thomson's 'Grease' (1991-2), 'The Little Matchgirl' at the Orange Tree (1993), Richmond, 'Chatsky' at the Hampstead studio theatre(1993-4), 'Trelawny of the Wells' at the Royal National Theatre (1994) and Pete Townsend's rock opera 'Iron Man' at the Young vic (1993).
A Voyage along the Silk Road in 2000 resulted in the production of a series of self-produced documentary films focussing on the arts and culture of Central Asia. I have presented these films, accompanied by lectures and conferences, throughout France and the UK between 2002 and 2012.

My Studio Equipment

Sound insulated recording space with USB microphone.

Additional Skills

I am adept at editorial and text adaptation, as well as translation into English from French. Part time employment as a local guide and historian has endowed me with considerable experience in transmitting historical or technical information in a lively, interesting and engaging way. Work animating educational projects for both adults and children has also provided me with skills necessary for engaging with an audience across a broad range of age and interest.

Payment Methods Accepted
