I work in an organic and bespoke way depending on the student’s requirements. My acting coaching is individual centred and I can help you work on your voice, scene study, self tapes or audition prep. I will assess your areas of growth but equally focus on whatever you feel the need to work on. I provide material, direction and coaching to help you take risks and learn.
With accent work I use my phonetics training, a wide variety of practical exercises to improve pronunciation, improve vocabulary and confident delivery.
With presentation skills coaching I use traditional and innovative techniques to enhance your public speaking, I can assist in writing your speech and calming your fears - mostly through practice!
I have been acting professionally for 15 years, most recently at the National Theatre, RSC, Broadway and BBC. In our lessons we will work on screen material, self tapes and auditions. For stage work we will work on plays, monologues and verse. If you are looking for voice, text or audition prep I can help.
For non native Actors, Accent reduction work allows the individual to be better understood, express themselves with ease and truly represent their language fluency without accent as a barrier. These lessons will guide you through the 45 sounds of English, articulation, intonation and stress, confident vocal production, body language and presentation skills. I also coach actors in a wide range of accents.
I also am keen to help young students improve self esteem, presentation and interview skills and performance ability. I have experience assisting young actors with their applications to drama school and those just starting in the business.
Perfect! Fantastic coach. Olivia is an actress who is working at the top of the industry. Her vast experience from working at the national theatre to filming many top tv shows makes her a brilliant all round coach. In the short time we’ve been working together my acting has improved tenfold along with my confidence. Olivia will push you to get the best out of you whilst being the most supportive coach I’ve met. If you need help working on audition material for drama school auditions or professional castings - Olivia is the coach you need. I never write reviews however, I’ve gone to many coaches over the years and Olivia is truly a rare find.
Olivia is a wonderful actress, and a total pleasure to work with. I’m excited to see what she does next!
