"As a dialect and acting coach, I have been fortunate to have worked with some remarkable actors over my 35-year career. A few of them stand out…some are well known and some are not. But each one whose work sticks with me possesses something special, their intellect, their deftness with text, their creativity. And some, like the remarkable Susan Davis, have an amalgam of all three. And she is beautiful, a dream to work with and has the work ethic to match the talent. I truly love working with Susan and am always excited to do so. And I also love that I get to call her ‘friend’. She is both a talent and a joy…a rare and exquisite combination."
