" Amazing reader!!! I love Carla's warmth, expertise, and advice. Also very helpful advice for theater actors crossing over into TV/film. "
" Carla is amazing and knows her stuff and catches onto a scene quickly!!! Will definitely look out for her. "
" Great running lines with Carla, very patient! "
" Carla is AMAZING! She's so friendly, super helpful, very insightful, and encouraging. It was amazing working with her and I highly recommend. Thank you, Carla!!!! "
" BOOK HER! Seriously the sweetest and such good energy. Her feedback was extremely helpful and really created a safe space to explore! Will be using her again! "
" You NEED to book her if shes ever available! She's not only encouraging through the entire process, she absolutely takes the time to be thorough and patient as you get to play along! She made me fall a little more in love with selftaping because she wanted me to get the perfect take and really book this as well! She was honest with me when a choice didnt read on camera or when I needed to one more take even after our time was up! She spotted somethings on the script that I didnt even catch and also accommodated a later time for the selftape since my schedule moved around! I cannot rave enough about her! Im telling you: Everyone needs a Carla in their lives!!!! Thank you, and I can't wait to play and practice with you again!! "
" Patient and really helpful! "
" Very helpful and very lovely. Took little to no time to tape "
