"I've seen Megan work on characters [that] could not be further apart from each other.  Megan inhabited them -- literally seemed to inhabit them -- completely and persuasively...somebody who can handle this range of material so brilliantly is worth your serious attention."  

                     ~ Austin Pendleton (actor, writer, director, and teacher of acting)   

“Megan has been my student of dialects...She is an extremely hard worker and has a great ear for accents."

                      ~Amanda Quaid, Dialect Coach & Actor

 "Megan's versatility with interpretations and spot on ability to understand directions and deliver makes her a very special talent to work with.  In short, Megan "gets it" quickly.  She's a rock solid pleasure to have in the studio.  Always aims to please."   ~Joanne Joella, Voice coach & actor

 

" From the moment she came to auditions, I knew Megan was well prepared for  the role- she researched the character and requirements for the part. Megan is professional in her dedication and thoroughness to a role and the production-always prompt, focused, and continuly developing her character. She displayed great comedic timing and created a character with meaning and depth."   

                    ~Terri Gilbert, Director
