Katy Sobey

MFA Professional Voice Studies


Katy is training to become a voice, accent and dialect coach. She is a professional actor and has been working largely in theatre, radio and audio book narration for the last 12 years, having initially trained at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama.

Drawing on her experience of working for many theatre companies, publishers and BBC Radio, Katy is especially interested in working with actors on creating authentic character accents and helping them extend their vocal ability, so their voice can serve them in any way they choose.

Katy was assistant accent and dialect coach on A Very Expensive Poison (BOVTS/Circomedia).

One of my favourite parts about BOVTS is that it feels ‘homegrown’. From the set to the costume, lighting, acting and sound, every single aspect of a theatre production or film is down to the students. The location of Clifton is so serene and the School being so small everyone knows each other and it feels so personal and special. Violet Morris, BA Professional Acting Student
