Tim Charrington

I have a background as a professional actor and director, graduating from Central School of Speech and Drama in 1980.  Returning to take the Advanced Diploma in Voice Studies in 1987/8, I have over 20 years experience as an accent and dialect coach.

I have taught at many of the U.K.'s leading drama schools including LAMDA and Drama Centre.  I work internationally on film, TV and theatre productions and privately with professional actors.
