In this major motion picture “ Chappaquidick” Charlotte played the role of Mrs Kopechne . The mother of Mary Jo Kopechne . Filmed right here in Massachusetts starring Jason Clarke, Ed Helms and Kate Mara.
As a puppeteer I got to work with Oscar winner Tom Woodruff and his team on the animatronic gorilla used in the family movie “Zookeeper”.
Each year I preform around 200 live shows in New England. So you may have seen me presenting one over the last few years. From storytelling at schools. Puppet shows at libraries, carolling in December , tours, interactive events, mystery shows, Theatre shows etc. You also may have seen my face on a big trolley or a garbage can. (really). Ooh and if I sound familiar you may have listened to one of the 50 plus audio books I’ve recorded including “ Sheer Mischief ” by Jill Mansell. Hope to see you in person. Please give us a call.
I am a proud member of the actors unions SAG-AFTRA and Actors Equity. I have been performing since childhood. I earned a BA (honours) in Creative arts and after graduating had my first professional job as an actor/singer/ storyteller in a shopping Mall in the UK. In the States I performed in traditional theatre and now have credits in mainstream movies and over 50 audio books. I love the challenge of working on all the dialects and voices in the audio books I've recorded. I especially love interactive and immersive theatre and am passionate about bringing shows to the community. I value escapism in stories but also want to be involved in work that challenges the way people think and act. Stories of hope, compassion, kindness, redemption and humanity are especially appealing to me.
I work as a full time actor and puppeteer both for stage, screen, new media, interactive shows, character meet and greet and audio book narration. I am happy to jump in last minute or book way in advance. Currently I have good Fall and winter availability. I drive and have a car and will travel all over New England from Maine to New Jersey for workI do have accommodations close to NYC if needed.
I sing well and am a soprano with Mezzo belt. I can sight read slowly. I have played real people from history/life including Abigail Adams, Madame Curie, Gwen Kopechne, Boy George and Elaine De Kooning. Additionally I own many costumes for historical and fantasy characters that your production can utilise when you hire me... saving you money on my costume. I can also direct, write, play guitar, sketch, build costumes, puppets and props. These are additional skills to help with your production, that I can bring to the table
I host a monthly actors workshop at my studio in Somerville (MA). I am writing a full length musical in my time between gigs.
