Chad Tyler

Hello....
This is my reader bio and it includes my industry experience as an off-camera reader & in casting. It also includes some training experience & my dialect/accent abilities:
(For my acting bio, please see "Actor Bio" below.)

I am a native Washingtonian and have been a proud member of SAG AFTRA since 2001. My training includes, but is not limited to, 2 years towards a B.F.A. in Theater with an Emphasis in Acting, at West Virginia University in Morgantown and also studied Acting at Hartwick College, In Utica, NY. I have attended various conservatory classes, Union workshops/classes focusing on scene study, monologue work, on camera classes, improv classes, and tv, film, industrial, commercial and voice over classes and labs.

I am able to speak English with a Standard American dialect, a Southern American dialect, a Baltimore dialect, an Irish Accent, a Pittsburguese dialect, and a Castilian Spanish accent. I am also able to speak conversational Spanish at a novice level.

I worked as a casting assistant on "Live Free or Die Hard" (2007) at Central Casting USA in Washington, D.C., where I assisted casting with casting all of the local background talent when and where the shooting locations were in Baltimore, MD and Washington, D.C.

I was an off camera reader for numerous episodes in season 4-6 on "House of Cards", as well as a stand-in on every single episode of the show, and most notably, a co star, in the series finale episode, which was directed by Robin Wright.

I'd love to be a reader for your rehearsal or self-tape audition, and can also provide coaching and/or advice, as well.
