    Additional Information

    I have a very pure English natural speaking voice, but in looks I am often taken as coming from the Mediterranean or the middle east. I can adopt a wide range of accents, especially English regional and North American. My forte is playing powerful and intense leading roles requiring a strong sense of performance. I love to play comedy and I am naturally exuberant and outgoing. I have always had a very positive relationship with directors and I take direction very well.

    About me
