Hi. I'm a dialect coach for actors in TV & film. When I'm not on set, I work privately with clients to help them integrate good acting with good dialect work, which is both a technical & emotional process. Read the New York Times Magazine piece about my work,  watch this super fun interview I did on Youtube & scroll down for some of my recent projects.


I'm also a public speaking coach for people in politics, business, tech, and creative fields who are looking to improve their speaking voice & delivery because how we share our vision matters as much as what it is, and I want you to have the tools to move your audience & change the world. More here.


Listen to my podcast all about how we speak & start changing the way you think about your voice now.


I've coached American & international actors including Gal Gadot, Rachel McAdams, Pierce Brosnan,

Ricky Martin, Gerard Butler, Rosie O'Donnell, Miles Teller, Keegan-Michael Key, and Penelope Cruz, and on projects for  Marvel, DC, HBO, Showtime, ABC, AMC, TNT, FOX, BBC, Apple, Amazon, and Netflix.


Some recent film & television I've coached:

“Samara’s great fun & was completely dedicated to helping me sound perfect & feel comfortable​ in the role. She has the knack for knowing exactly when and how to communicate.  ​
I would ​recommend her to anybody.” 
                   — Matt Lucas, actor
              (Bridesmaids, Little Britain)
Samara Bay is my secret weapon! Her relaxed & confident style puts the actors at ease, and I can always trust her to work to the project's needs without stepping on the toes of the director. Sometimes it's about honing a sound, other times it's helping an actor to a more nuanced understanding of the script; always it's in service to the production.
                    — Sarah Green, producer
