Maya Knell

Reads for free & accepts tips

Hey, I'm Maya! I've been acting for almost 20 years and have a lot of experience in theater and comedy.

My main focus is Film/TV, theater, and comedy. I have experience writing, directing, and self-producing. I also love to work with the Groundlings, and take scene study classes to stay on my toes! I'm on tv, feature and short films!

I'm a former professional reader/acting coach with a self-tape company in Los Angeles, and would love to read with you! I'll give you my all (without taking away your shine of course ;) ), and can assist with technical specs, comedic beats, or acting advice! Whatever you need! If I'm ever unavailable on here, or you want to request a specific time to work, feel free to dm me on Instagram, or email me @ .

We can work on:
- Running lines,
- Memorizing,
- Tips for a killer self-tape
- Walking through the scene together
- Howeverrrr you want to spend your time.

Can't wait to meet and work with you!

Comedic actor and performer living in LA. Always down to clown!
