Bryony Reynolds

Need someone to read with you without pressure or judgement for as many takes as you like?

I have been working as a professional actor for over 8 years, and know what it's like to need someone reliable to read-in last minute. I also know how important it is to have someone read who knows what they're doing, to have energy to be able to bounce off, to be actively listening, and to take off any unnecessary pressure so you can perform at your very best. I am so grateful for all those who've helped me throughout the years, so I'm hoping to pay it forward by helping you if ever you need someone to read with.

I have a natural English home counties/RP accent, and am also skilled in heightened RP, Southern Irish, West Country English (Devon, Dorset, Bristol), Yorkshire, Australian, or General American accents. I am happy to teach you these accents if you need one for any role/audition. I also specialise in Shakespeare and am happy to coach you in Shakespearean and classical performance techniques if you are doing any classical or period roles.

So grab a cuppa, pull up a chair, and hopefully we can work on your script together until your happy you've got the best take.

I am a highly reviewed performer, specialising in Shakespeare and period dramas and skilled in archery, singing, puppetry, mask, stage and screen. Most recently I have performed the title role of Macbeth in Bard City’s Macbeth directed by Owen Horsley. Other theatre highlights include working with National Theatre's Simon Godwin, Lily McLeish (AD to Katie Mitchell), as well as performing in the award-winning puppetry adaptation 'Macbeth the Musical' (White Bear Theatre), 'Macbeth' (YSC National tour), 'Theatre Without Sight or Sound' (Old Red Lion), and 'Twelfth Night' (Exeter Northcott Theatre). Screen work includes working with the award-winning production company Parkville Pictures in 'The Bris Of Michael Moshe Solomon'.
