ABOUT ME

LINDSAY 
McKINNON

-     WHO AM I  YOU ASK    - 

Actor, writer, singer, comedian. VO work inc radio commercials and news reading. Taught American accents to Canadians at ACTRA. Member of ACTRA and EQUITY. Good sense of comic timing, having written and performed on the stand-up circuit myself. I have a good range of accents including British (most regional dialects and BBC English), Scottish (soft Edinburgh and harder edged Glaswegian) Irish (Northern and Southern) and Welsh. European accents including French, German, Italian. American accents (Generic American, New York, Southern). I have mostly worked in regional theatres as an actress and performed for many years as a singer, both of which have helped by vocal range, so can easily switch from high to low, young to old. Accents are one thing, getting the character's personality to come to life as the author has portrayed them is vital, so I also concentrate on getting that across in how the character speaks, so their personality is apparent by their pitch, speed and delivery of their dialogue.
