Acting With Accents

I’ve always had fun speaking with various accents, but I’ve never had the confidence to actually add that ability to my acting resume, until I recently took a class with acting coach Cheryl Felicia Rhoads. Cheryl is a great, encouraging coach and has become a dear friend. I also met some other great actors in her class.

With the help of this class, I’ve now gotten really good at picking up accents and am very confident in using them in acting roles. I’ve strung a few together in this video. I wrote the script myself to deliberately use certain words that display the peculiarities of each accent’s speech pattern.
