“Kia ora! I’m Kirsty Bruce. I’m based in Auckland, New Zealand but am proficient in standard U.S, English RP and many other accents. I also speak German. I have spent much of this year doing self-tape courses so am well-versed with the technical and creative elements required to make a great self-tape. I am particularly experienced in Shakespeare; I spent last summer performing Richard III & The Taming of the Shrew in repertory for a ten week season at Pop-up Globe and the most recent summer as the female understudy for Pop-up Globe’s Romeo & Juliet and Much Ado About Nothing – I’m a pretty fast line learner! Happy to run lines, work on a scene, help with self-taping, accents – anything really! DM me on Instagram @Kirstysarahrosebruce to schedule a time if I’m not currently available.”
