A dialect coach is very personal to the actor, like a monologue or a certain piece of wardrobe for their character. The dialect – accent has to be specific, not just generic or perceived. Claudette has the uncanny ability to see the character from the actor’s perspective because she is also an accomplished actor.
She is a master at teaching dialects and helped me personalize my Mississippi accent for my role in director Peter Greenaway’s film, Eisenstein In Guanajuato. I would highly recommend her to any actor that is serious about their craft.
