English, London, clever, refined, inspire, velvety
I am a native British woman originally from London, England. I now live in Seattle, WA.
I specialise in accents, including British R.P., Cockney, English neutral, Londoner, English Estuary, American and Australian.
I am a trained stage actress and love creating characters. Some of my go-to characters include: old enchantress, sorceress, heroine, teenage girl, soldier, victim. My characters can be soft and girlish, or deep and powerful.
For narration I can provide captivating, enticing, smart dramatic reads. I can also be pleasant, cosmopolitan and innovative.
I am an excellent sight reader and love a challenge.
