US dialect coach, Doug Honorof, to teach exclusively in the UK for BRAVA

Updated: Apr 22

Douglas N. Honorof, US dialect coach

We are thrilled that Doug Honorof - a full-time, US-based dialect coach and language consultant for scripted television, film, animation and audiobooks will be joining the BRAVA team. Doug has coached thousands of voices (regional, social, character - for stage, VO, on-camera) and has worked on over 400 films and TV episodes for studios including HBO, Warner Bros., Apple TV+, Disney, Netflix, Amazon Studios, Lionsgate, Universal and FX. His TV and film credits include Orange Is The New Black, Nurse Jackie, 30 Rock and the Marvelous Mrs Maisel:

Doug will begin working exclusively in the UK with BRAVA talent in November, delivering his accents and dialects programme online, as well as visiting the UK to deliver an intensive masterclass on American accents for British actors.

Doug said:

‘I am excited to be joining BRAVA in the UK - I love helping established voice actors take their craft to new levels and enjoy shepherding fresh talent as they discover their potential in the industry. Increasing ease and consistency in accents and dialects is one proven way for the committed actor to extend a range of credible, marketable characters. And it is especially fun to support British actors as they gain skill-based confidence in their awareness of US Englishes and their ability to shift from one to another."

Commenting on Doug’s appointment, BRAVA Founder & CEO, Melissa Thom, said:

‘We are thrilled that Doug is joining the team here at BRAVA. He is one of the busiest and most respected dialect coaches in the film and television industry in the US and we are lucky that he will be joining us here in Bristol to share his expertise exclusively with BRAVA’s British actors. I have personally worked with Doug and I know our talent will gain many invaluable insights working with a coach of his calibre.’

Doug will be working with BRAVA talent this year, delivering his accents and dialects programme, as well as visiting the UK to deliver an intensive masterclass on American accents for British actors.
