"Claudine is the kind of actor you want in your foxhole. Funny, charming, nuanced, she brings out the best in the writing."
Stacie Passon, award-winning writer/director of "Concussion"
"Claudine brought my work to life with her masterful skills as a voice actor and storyteller. Her astute characterizations demonstrated her stunning range, but she had a deft touch: honoring the voice of the work as a whole while illuminating every human and visual detail. I'm writing the next one faster because I can't wait to hear her read it."
