Let me introduce myself and tell you a bit about my work as dialect coach. I've been a dialect coach since 1999, and am house coach for Hallmark Hall of Fame, the series LEVERAGE, GRIMM, and others. (I've also worked in film, television, animation and commercials since 1979 as SAG-AFTRA voice actor and on-camera performer). Film, television and stage clients range from overnight sensations like Rob Pattinson to acclaimed artists William Hurt, Héctor Elizondo and Shohreh Aghdashloo, to international treasures like Sir Patrick Stewart. I've been fortunate to coach Obie, Emmy, BAFTA, and Academy-Award winners and nominees, and I adore supporting dialect discovery that is joyous, authentic, and that inspires a life-long curiosity to learn more. I live in Oregon but work worldwide -- where ever you are, that's where I want to be. So take a peek at the work I do -- then be in touch and tell me about YOU. Me: www.marymac.com

One of the top Dialect coaches in the nation. There's a reason for that. Not only is she one of the best, she's also friendly, smart, and a skilled communicator. I've been working professionally in this business for over 35 years and I've never worked with anyone better.

Mary McDonald-Lewis is a veritable Swiss Army Knife of best-in-class talents from dialog coach to acting to directing to being a great shoulder to cry on. For anything related to the industry, I highly recommend Mary!
