Reads for free & accepts tips

Madeline (Maddie) here.

I am an experienced actor living in Melbourne Australia, but willing to read with people internationally too!

I have been working professionally throughout Melbourne and the UK, am experienced in screen, stage, accent work and self tapes.

I have experience in LeCoq, Chekhov, Hagen, Strasberg (Method), Meisner, Stella Adler & Howard Fine. Recently I have been working with Joseph Pearlman and the Pearlman Acting Academy.

For my day job I work as a Producer & Casting Director, therefore I know what we look for in casting sessions, which is a really great insight to have for self tapes.

I have also trained and performed as an improviser as well.

I don't charge for rehearsal or self tapes etc, just in it for the good karma and paying it forward. Feel free to leave a tip if you so choose. Love a review though! :)

You can get me on
Find me on Clubhouse and IG as well :)
