DE LA POER
VOICE OVER ARTIST
Emma de la Poer is a versatile, LAMDA-trained British actor, presenter and voice coach. She is the grand-daughter of renowned
Shakespearean actor Richard Hurndall, whose stage, TV and radio appearances inspired her
to follow him into the acting profession.
Film and Theatre
Emma is best known for her television performances in shows as diverse as
Brazen Hussies and Horizon.
She has also demonstrated her range on stage, winning praise for her brooding, tragic Miss Havisham
in Charles Dickens' Great Expectations (2016); the breezily frivolous Lady Gilpin in
Hands Across The Sea (2015) by Noel Coward, Dolly in Still Life by Noel Coward; and befuddled Sheila in Ayckbourn's Relatively Speaking (2017).
Voice and Presentation
Emma has taught Drama and Speech & Drama within schools since 1998, specializing in elocution,
movement and body language. During this time many of her students have gained drama scholarships
and excellent LAMDA results in Public Speaking, Verse and Prose, Acting, Reading for Performance and Devised Performance examinations.
In between stage and screen acting roles, Emma is available for voice overs and presenting work. She offers voice coaching workshops to individuals and corporate clients.
Emma holds three LAMDA Gold Medals: Acting & Verse & Prose: ALAM (1995); AVCM Hons
(1999); and LVCM Teaching Diploma (2000).
She has also continued her professional development through a wide range of LAMDA workshops:
Stanislavski (2007); Brecht (2007); About Sonnets (2009); Oratory & Rhetoric:
Speaking in Public (2009); Communication (2009); Commedia Dell 'Arte & Masks (2009);
19th Century Literature in Performance (2011); 20th Century Literature in Performance (2011);
The Actor & the Text (2011);
Performing Shakespeare (2011).
Lessons with Emma were most beneficial. She was friendly and made me feel relaxed about the daunting task of making the Father of the Bride speech. She gave me the confidence to stand up in front of 150 guests. Lessons were conducted in a relaxed way, but nevertheless we always worked on specific tasks on how to deliver a good speech. She also gave me 'homework' to practise what we had covered in the session.
