Rachel August


I'm an Oxford School of Drama-trained actor hustling my trade in London, getting involved in anything from Shakespeare (with Barbara Houseman of RSC) to screen acting to voicing evil characters for video games and Netflix animations.

I've done workshops with lots of leading London casting directors so can offer some helpful feedback on what I've picked up - or just be a friendly and supportive presence while you nail your tape :)

I do lots of voice work so sight-read all day long, and happy to really get stuck in if you want to fire up the scene and work off each other. I became an actor because I love the acting tribe so let's get you flying!

Trained in Meisner if you want to do repetition to get connected, and always up for some improv to create life and investment in the scene.

PS. I'm half Brit-half Scandi so can read in native RP/standard English or Scandinavian languages - just in case you’re going for that Viking role.

Rachel August is an actress, known for Hilda and the Mountain King (2021), The Last Campfire (2020) and Music Box (2020).
