British Dialect Coaching
Marilla Wex is an award-winning English voice artist with over twenty years experience specializing in British dialects and 10 years coaching Canadian, Australian and American actors in RP (Received Pronunciation or standard English) and other British accents. She is currently working on ABCs Designated Survivor. Previously she has worked on CW’s Reign and coached actors for Canada’s prestigious Shaw Festival as well as countless theatrical productions including Skylight, The Railway Children, and The Sad and Cautionary Tale of Smackheaded Peter.
She approaches each project or client with a flexible attitude and a battery of strategies at her fingertips. Her passion for accuracy and fluency means that her clients never sound “clipped” or unnatural (a personal bugbear developed over ten years of listening to bad English accents in north American tv, film and theatre).
Her work in front of and behind the camera has taught her that almost anyone, given the right coaching, can master an English accent.
