Previous unpaid speaking roles
I have experience in developing different persona's that I have played when producing and airing my radio shows.
For example, Weekend dance show I played a young lad, into club scene and the latest club music and up to date hits. This persona had a very 'down to earth' but fun and energetic demeanour, that was a bit of a 'loud mouth' and 'one of the lads'.
Drive time persona was more laid back, liked to discuss what was going on locally and keeping the listeners informed. Came across as a friendly, approachable person and made everyone feel welcome without ever actually meeting them.
Breakfast person was a lot, lot more talkative. Lots of general chit chat and occasional 'banter'. Work hard to engage the listeners and make sure they were up to date with local news and going's on.
As you can see these are just 3 very different persona's I have played to fit a role, despite this being aired on Radio. I have at times had to adjust and step into an unfamiliar slot which has required me to be quick thinking and improvise.
Recently as I am undertaking more and more professional lessons, I am developing my acting skills and have acted out a variety of roles using scripts provided by the school.
