I had a wonderful experience working with Oleg. He was able to help me with sounds and inflections but also had a great understanding of character as well. So by the time I was on set I was able to play the part and not just to say the words correctly. His help and sensitivity to the actor’s process was greatly appreciated.

He also provides personal training and coaching in acting, voice, and dialogue.


Dialogue Coach

Oleg is a highly skilled dialogue coach, consultant, and voice-director. He has worked on such films as Man from U.N.C.L.E., World War Z, and X-Men: First Class. Oleg coaches professional actors on the delivery of dialogue in Russian and/or Russian-accented English. Amongst his clients were Daniel Craig (Defiance) and Kevin Bacon (X-Men: First Class).

Oleg’s classes gave me the freedom to be brave, bold and creative. I lost my fear of new challenges and grew as a performer. Oleg taught me not to rely simply on text but to use many other tools.
