This six-week series will delve into the minutiae of the so-called General American accent. As US castings begin to pick up again, now is the perfect to time to learn how to fully embody this go-to accent for the majority of American projects. As actors we need to engage viscerally with our character’s accent rather than simply relying on prescriptive sound shifts and mimicry. In this series we will learn how to do this. We’ll look at resonance, oral posture and lexical sets, and we’ll discover how melody, rhythm and an engagement with different energetic sources in the body can mine and shape point of view. It is this visceralised point of view that will allow the actor to transform into character rather than merely putting the accent on.
