Jeannette Nelson

As Head of Voice at the National Theatre, Jeannette Nelson is responsible for ensuring that every actor at Britain's leading theatre is speaking clearly and performing confidently. In a career spanning stage, film and TV, she has worked with many of the world's leading actors - including the likes of Al Pacino, Joseph Fiennes, Keeley Hawes, Orlando Bloom, Benedict Cumberbatch and Juliette Binoche. She has worked at the NT since 1992, and has also been a voice coach at Shakespeare's Globe, the Royal Shakespeare Company and Sydney Theatre Company. Nelson's The Voice Exercise Book (2015) has become the go-to guide for actors looking for exercises to help improve their voice. 'Jeannette's knowledge is astonishing and her approach so gentle and effective' Derren Brown 'Jeannette's warm-up sessions are tremendous' Zoë Wanamaker
