Actress Coaches Sex-Change Patients
Los Angeles, CA -- When sex-change patients who are going from male to female need to learn how to talk like a woman, they go to actress Erica Shaffer.
She's known as the queen of Japanese Anime because of her voice work in Asian animation, but she moonlights as a vocal coach for the transgendered.
Shaffer says many men make the mistake of piping their voices up way too high when they're first trying to be female, which can strain the vocal chords and lead to sore throats.
Therefore, her task is to show the soon-to-be-women how to sound feminine while speaking in a lower octave.
Shaffer has clients all over the world and says its very satisfying to see a sex-change patient realize "you don't have to sound like Marilyn Monroe to be feminine."
She hopes to one day earn a PhD in transgender voice therapy, but, in the meantime, she's starring as "the ideal lesbian girlfriend" in the indie movie "A Family Affair."
