My name is Eileen Álvarez!
I am based in Los Angeles, Ca.
I'm a member of The Actors Studio (NYC), and have also studied with many great LA teachers.
I have worked in commercial casting, and am also a TV writer and filmmaker, so I bring that perspective to the work as well.
Happy to be your reader -- I always learn so much from watching others work.
I'm also a native Spanish speaker so I'm happy to read Spanish scenes with my fellow Latines, etc.
I look forward to working together!
email me if you'd like to schedule a session: firstname.lastname@example.org
