Sarah Valentine

Accent Coach

Helping you find your own unique voice

Hi, I’m Sarah! I coach actors for acting, voice work, dialect and accents for the Film and TV Industry.

Welcome

I coach Actors for Acting, Dialect and Accents in the Film and TV industry and my accents include all UK, European and Standard American.

I have worked in the Film and Television industry since 1989. I currently work as an Actor, an Agent, and a Dialect Coach.

I started coaching due to a strong demand for my skills and an innate ability to make my clients feel relaxed and comfortable, whilst providing tools to help anyone learn to speak with an accent or new dialect.

Whether you want to create your own character dialect, create your own version of an accent or simply get that accent down so you sound pitch perfect, I can help you learn all the skills you need to get you sounding just right!

Let me teach you to sound authentic for your next role.

My Story

I’ve worked in the Film and Television industry for 30 years; behind the scenes as a casting director, AD and Cast Coordinator to in front of the camera as an actor.

I have had the pleasure of working as an actor on Top of the Lake Season 1 with Elisabeth Moss (Handmaids Tale), David Wenham (Lord of the Rings), Holly Hunter (Oscar winner), Pete Mullan (Harry Potter, Ozark) and directed by Jane Campion (What an amazing woman, would love to work with her again – any day of the week).

During that incredible time I got to have a lot of fun perfecting my American, Australian, Southern and Scots accents while hanging out with these talented actors.

I have also had a the pleasure of working on a wide variety of TV shows and movies, you can view more of my work on IMDB, or visit sarahvalentine.com.
