|Name||Nicola Delgado Sievertson|
A wise and cheeky slice of rum-cake: Born in the UK, of Jamaican parentage. I lived in Jamaica and England as a child, then America for college. I went to college at 16 to study chemistry and found myself more grounded in the theatre department! Classically trained; I have studied Theatre at Columbia College, British American Drama Academy and LAMDA and graduated from the Conservatory program at The Second City in Chicago. I studied with great teachers such as Claire Davidson, Henry Goodman, Fiona Shaw, Juliet Stevenson. I have performed in such venues as Berkeley Rep and The Magic Theatre, San Francisco. There is nothing that gives me more joy that bringing voice to a novel to inspire your imagination. I aim to connect emotionally with the manuscript and characters. I specialize in British Regional and British Commonwealth dialects.
I am adept in wrangling a teenage boy and his waterpolo team. I sew, I bake, I garden, and drink too many cups of tea, which often are left strewn around the house! I love cats and greyhounds, and chocolate. Odd Facts include: I worked on an Academy award winning documentary film - logging and transcribing the stories of Kindertransport - survivors of the Holocaust. I have been a post production supervisor.
I teach dialects and coach acting for teens and adults. I used to study ballet once upon a time, that transitioned to stage combat in college, where wielding a broadsword or rapier and dagger was my preferred state. Ten years ago I learned to swim, and now enjoy swimming very slowly and badly (in a pool) - My son says I really just float. Why did I send him to Improv classes?
