Robert Marshall is a Tasmanian actor, educator and adventurer. He holds a Master of Fine Arts Degree (MFA) in Voice from NIDA, a Bachelor of Arts Degree from the University of Melbourne, and is a graduate of the Atlantic Acting School in New York City.
As a voice teacher and acting coach, Rob is passionate about guiding actors towards individual expression, through the acquirement of a psycho-visceral connection to text. During his time at NIDA Rob was fortunate enough to work with some of the world’s leading voice practitioners, including Kristin Linklater, Catherine Fitzmaurice and Barbara Houseman. His teaching philosophy is also inspired by the work of Cicely Berry, Arthur Lessac, Patsy Rodenburg and F.M. Alexander.
In 2017, Rob was the recipient of the NIDA MFA (Voice) Scholarship, and also the Tasmanian Theatre Council Chairman’s Scholarship. The latter gave him the opportunity to travel to the USA to intern with esteemed dialect coach Beth McGuire, while she worked on the hit Marvel film Black Panther. In 2018, Rob returned to the States to teach voice, speech and text classes at Yale School of Drama and Carnegie Mellon University, as part of his MFA international placement commitments.
