using your voice and speech
When trying to learn a particular accent, many students require the assistance of a voice and
speech coach. Far too many actors make the mistake of thinking that their voice acting and
accents are separate from their physical acting. Actors seem to think that each component of their
acting talent can be trained separately one at a time. Creating a role and bringing it to life cannot
occur if an actor treats his talent as divisible; instead, effort needs to be made to nurture all
aspects of creativity and talent together as a unified body. There is so much more to a character's
accent than just pronunciation; an accent should also tell the audience more about the character's
personality, upbringing, opinions, and culture. Molding an accent to convey all of these aspects of
the character is certainly not easy, but is definitely crucial to accurately portraying a character and
all of the components that make that individual who they are.
Focusing on pronunciation during acting class may yield some results, but they are often subpar
and temporary. Paying attention only to the pronunciation of each line will not help the audience
to understand the true meaning of the words. You don't want your lines and words to seem too
rehearsed; spontaneity is key to a great performance. An actor's words are supposed to change
people. With each word that is spoken, you should give the audience a deeper insight into the
feelings and emotions of the character. If you focus too much on the technical accuracy of your
voice, the audience won't be able to listen as intently to the story.
Any voice and speech teacher you choose should put an emphasis on building the connection
between speech and accent as well as creativity and character creation. If you want to stand out
in the acting world, make the effort to work on your voice and to give each character a personality
and accent that only you're capable of creating for the role. As an actor, it is your job to breathe
life into the character; each accent should make each role different, and therefore needs to be
about more than just technical accuracy, pronunciation, and the words themselves. If you would
like to be known as an actor who is able to bring any character to life and to do so in a way that
makes both you and your role a memorable one, there's no denying the importance of detailed,
comprehensive speech and voice training.
