Hello there! I'm Claire! (she/they) ✨
A little about me-
I LOVE working with actors! I am here for whatever you need. Running lines only? Great! Some help breaking down a scene? Great! Want some adjustments to play around with? Great! Or anything else acting related you might want assistance with.
I have a strong ear for comedy, but I love the drama too! I can also coach musical theatre and help read sheet music! 🎭
I have trained in both New York City and Los Angeles at studios such as MN Acting Studio, The Barrow Group, Sheila Gray, Upright Citizens Brigade, Scott Sedita Acting Studio, and The Last Acting Studio. I have performed professionally on stage and on screen, and love both worlds of showbiz very much.
Additionally, I am good with young performers! I worked in childcare for many years and have taught and coached many young actors over the years.
I want to help you succeed! I'm also a big geek and if you want to talk movies or screenwriting or comic books, I'm here for that too. 🤓

Tips are appreciated if you have the means but no worries if not. In lieu of tips I would be extremely grateful if you followed me on Instagram @claireburgi or subscribed to my YouTube channel! 😊
In 2021 I performed opposite Molly Shannon in the season two finale of the HBO Max Original, "The Other Two." In the episode I graciously lose a game of Tic Tac Toe; who knew it could be so difficult?
Most recently I portrayed an anxious stage manager in the mockumentary pilot, "DOGS! The Musical." (Yes, a mockumentary about a knock-off parody of CATS.)
I plan to participate in Self Tape May again in 2023! If you'd like to follow my self tape practice journey please visit @theburgitapes on Instagram.
Additionally, I am also a screenwriter. In 2017 I wrote, produced, and starred in my first short film "Blush," which was an official selection for Cine Fern (2018), and semifinalist for Los Angeles CineFest (2018). In 2019 my short film "Maggie" made it to the final round of voting for the NYFA Women in Filmmaking Grant. Currently in 2023 I am writing and developing my own mockumentary series.
A little bit of personal information about me, I love to read and am always hunting for the next good book. I love board games, and can throw down a mean game of Catan. I love animals and spending time in nature, and have recently gotten into jump roping! I have a deep appreciation for magic, particularly sleight of hand, because my boyfriend is a magician. We met on the NYC subway. It was, indeed, magical. My big goal for 2023 is to become proficient in American Sign Language!
