With back to back Helpmann award winners and critically acclaimed plays under her dialect belt in just the last 3 years, Paige has just finished wrapping on films Safe Neighbourhood and SFv1 with director/producer Shane Abbess (Infini, Terminus and Gabriel). She is also the resident dialect coach at New York Film Academy’s Sydney campus.
After working with actors such as Stef Dawson (Hunger Games), Delta Goodrem, Logie Award winner Hugh Sheridan, Andy Whitfield (Spartacus and Gabriel) and Jessica Mauboy, Paige has become the go-to source for American Dialect. Her approach to her work is to take the fine detail into concepts that are approachable and comprehensive, allowing each actor to find their American voice and then apply that voice to their work.
A US native, Paige has 27 years of experience in the arts industry, beginning her journey at one of the United States most celebrated performing arts school, Cincinnati’s School for Creative and Performing Arts. Going on to receive her Bachelor of Fine Arts in theatre, she then took the trip to New York where she spent eight years treading the boards. Upon making the move to Sydney in 2000, Paige began teaching American Dialect full time, privately and on set. She can be found working in some of Sydney’s most renowned theatres like Belvoir Street, on feature film and television sets & preparing actors to make their move to the LA and New York as well as working with clients worldwide. It is her attention to detail that makes her work so invaluable for American projects.
