Areas of Expertise: Voice Dialogue Accent
Born in Vietnam I continue to travel and work with different nationalities and languages. I speak French and Italian. After 25 years working as an actress [ I was a founder member of the National theatre Company under Peter Hall on the South Bank ] I work as a voice coach and actress.
After working with Angela Molina / Fernando Ray on 1492 directed by Ridley Scott I followed up the voice coaching experience by taking the Post Graduate Diploma in Voice Studies at the Central School of Speech and Drama and taking the Post Graduated Diploma in Voice Studies. I work with a broad base of Private and Corporate clients which include the NHS, The Foreign Office, The US Defence Department , RADA in Business, Crystal Media and Tattersall Training and I continue to work with actors on a one to one basis in film, theatre and television. I have always been passionate about verbal communication, clarity and understanding in whatever accent or language.
