Who am I ?
Hi! I’m Hunter Phoenix. I’m an Actress, a Model and a VoiceOver artist with 20+ years in the biz. To date, I’ve lived and worked in 8 different countries. This includes modeling, commercials & print work in Athens & Istanbul, acting and voice overs in Toronto and London, and even screen writing, before diving into the big market of Los Angeles that is now home.
My training started off with classics; first theatre, drama school and about 10 years of vocal training, primarily Spoken Level Voice / Kristen Linklater Technique and breath work specific for actors, as well a regionally specific dialect studies.
My love for the craft took me to NYC to study with legendary acting coach Uta Hagen: a process that literally changed my life and transformed my entire approach to acting. It also led to roles on-stage like Blanche in Streetcar Named Desire and Karen in David Mamet’s iconic Hollywood satire, Speed The Plow.
On-camera I’ve shot dozens of commercials, music videos, industrials and informercials. (Hey… don’t judge the paycheck! We all gotta eat!) Check out my cameo in Millie Cyrus’s music video “Mother’s Daughter” here.
I’ve also appeared on-screen in both European and American feature films such as Master of Pulpits, now available on Amazon, The Bandit Hound IIwith Lou Ferrigno, Paul Sorvino & Catherine Bell & on TV in Mutant X, Doc, Singles Court, PSI Factor: Chronicles of the Paranormal and have hosted for HGTV.
In 2019 I was lucky enough to book an indie pilot, that has been featured at NINE film festivals to date and just won an award for “Best Pilot”. You can read more about that here!
Currently (if we ever get out of pandemic-mode) I’m voicing 5 characters (English language dubbing) on the mega hit TV series Babylon Berlin….. two seasons done and third one on the way!
In 2008 I started coaching other actors. I love to help new performers and people looking to break into the biz, as well as seasoned actors who want to up-level their career or deepen their craft.
My specialty as a coach: No B.S., fast, laser-focused and straight to the point. You get results NOW.
You tap into my unique combination of years of experience in different markets and multiple countries, and training with more than a dozen of my own coaches, to help you create work that stands out to casting directors & agents, and to make self-tapes that shine above the rest and to launch your career.
