On Set French Dialect & Performance Coach

I bring 15 years of acting training to on-set film pronunciation performance & dialect reduction coaching.  

I trained as an actor with National Youth Theatre, Central School of Speech and Drama, Ecole Jacques Lecoq. I took masterclasses withUS film coach Marilyn Fried,  Living Theatre co founder Judith Molina, and Word for Word artistic director Susan Harloe. Plus, I studied Musical Theatre at British Youth Music.  This gives me a unique perspective to how actors should deliver their lines in another language to sound authentic.

Chase Emery Davis is a tremendous French, English and American dialogue coach. I learned so much about how to use my voice with his knowledge of these languages and sounds, and it was great fun on the way...

Recent Work

Working with Chase, in his capacity of an accent and dialogue coach this year on a new BBC show, was pretty game changing for me. He is truly knowledgable and cogent in his field, but, crucially, holds an innate understanding of performance and the creative process. I firmly believe his work helps me perform better as an actor on set. 

He now teaches me weekly French through his system of language learning and I’ve come on much faster than I’d hoped in our 16 sessions. It was quite daunting to return to lessons - a decade after leaving school! - but it’s been a hoot working together so far, as well as a hugely rewarding challenge
