“It was my pleasure and good fortune to employ Claire Crowther as dialogue coach on my film Dead Calm. Claire’s highly positive and inventive teaching methods stimulated Nicole Kidman to always strive for higher standards. The results were everything I could have hoped for.”

Phillip Noyce

“I worked with Claire on The Navigator an AFI multi award winning feature film which I co- wrote and directed. Claire devised the medieval Cumbrian dialect and was dialect and dialogue coach. Australia needs such expertise as Claire Crowther offers to help maintain and expand the success of our film industry.”

Vincent Ward

“Claire Crowther is a gifted and more importantly, challenging teacher. I still access many of the exercises she took me through when she was a teacher of mine at NIDA. She has a wealth of knowledge in performance and voice and inspires her students to push themselves beyond their safety zones, to dig deeper and surprise themselves.”

Miranda Otto

“Claire is a brilliant, kind, intuitive teacher and person. I recommend her and her teachings. I have passed on some of Claire’s acting and voice techniques to actors, voice over producers and casting directors in the USA. Claire’s American dialect coaching was invaluable to me.”

Cameron Daddo
President of Camal Productions

“Claire understands the sensibility of an actor’s process with her finely tuned intuition and great skill. I would recommend her to either actor or director in achieving the best performance.”

Stephen Lance
Director of the Australian feature film ‘My Mistress’ starring international screen legend Emmanuel Béart

“Claire is an excellent acting teacher and an accomplished actor in her own right. As a young actor auditioning for drama school, Claire helped me choose monologues that were right for me and coached me with them until they were audition- ready.”

Ben Lawson
NIDA graduate

“I worked with Claire for my voice training and presenting skills. She helped me understand the different pitch and tones in my voice when talking to both camera and in speaking engagements. She is a very professional individual who has a great knowledge, experience and understanding of the film and TV industry, which was really helpful. I would recommend Claire to anyone wanting to know more about this space.”

Mark Visser
International big wave surfer

“Claire is a true expert in her field and has trained some of the top international and national artists who owe much of their success to her remarkable skills.”

Dean Carey
Creative and Founding Director,
Actors Centre Australia

“I owe so much to Claire Crowther. There is no way I’d be in Sydney radio if I hadn’t taken classes in the early stages of my career. The added benefits of ‘talk to camera’ training gave me skills I could use years down the track too. You’re doing your career a disservice by not choosing her.”

Chris Beckhouse (Becko)
Triple M Sydney

“Claire is a gifted and articulate teacher who helped me to build the foundations of my acting and vocal training. Her passion, guidance and work ethic inspired me to always work harder and search deeper for the truth in any character I play. I would recommend her to anyone who is looking to go to drama school, work on an accent, or just to be a more confident and well rounded speaker. ”

James Monarski
WAAPA graduate

“Claire’s coaching helped to lay my vocal foundation and assisted me in achieving my goals in the industry.”
