Claudia Christian: On Becoming a Working TV Actor
Under Claudia’s direction, participants will perform a couple of short scenes from a contemporary drama and a contemporary comedy in front of the camera. Claudia will then playback and use that footage to point out the importance of being there for the other actors even when you’re not on camera, being fully engaged at all times, knowing where your light is, and tips on hair/wardrobe for taped auditions.
Claudia Christian’s TV and film acting credits span the full range of comedy, drama, action, and animation voiceover. She is known to many for her long-running role in “Babylon 5″ but she has also appeared on “Castle”, “Grimm”, “Nip/Tuck”, “NYPD Blue”, and Disney’s animated feature “Atlantis: The Lost Empire”. She is also a very successful video game voiceover talent, and can be heard in “Skyrim”, “Guild Wars 2″, “Halo”, and “Darksiders II”.
