Hello! I’m Tiffany Gilly-Forrer, my pronouns are she/her, and I am from in the Pacific Northwest. I’ve been a professional actor for a decade, collaborated on over 75 theatrical productions worked on film projects, TV commercials, and performed in live comedy shows from Portland to NYC to Baton Rouge. I am an Equity Member Candidate, an award-winning singer, and a theatre & film instructor at Utah Tech University (UT). My MFA in Acting and certification in the Seven Pillars Acting technique were both earned at the prestigious Louisiana State University (LSU) and since graduating, I’ve taught acting to students of all ages, kids to adults in studios, theatre companies, and universities across the country.
Recent projects I've had the privilege to work on include publishing an academic article for the Voice and Speech Review, producing and performing in a two-woman cabaret at Don't Tell Mama NYC, and Dialect/Voice Coaching at UT. My husband Chris and I are travel-obsessed nerds who share a passion for our craft, analyzing great film, and our two tabby cats, Ridley and Houdini.
Tiffany is currently seeking Los Angeles & Southwest representation. Please reach out at firstname.lastname@example.org if you're interested in collaborating.
Tiffany is represented by Ultimate Model Management, Inc in Atlanta, GA. Please direct all Southeast film, tv, and commercial booking inquiries to:

I am a certified instructor of the Seven Pillars Acting technique, by Sonya Cooke. For two years, I was mentored by Sonya during my MFA training and am actively teaching the technique in studios and universities across the country.
I have been teaching kids through adults for over a decade now. From private coaching virtually and in person to college courses, I consider teaching a whole craft of its own. My students have gone on to get accepted to prestigious acting schools, been cast in feature films, and signed with agents, If you wish to train with Tiffany, she recommends every actor purchase a copy of the book in order to thoroughly understand her teaching style and pedagogy.
I have training in Knight-Thompson Speech Work, Linklater, and Fitzmaurice with master teachers of each technique. I use IPA and easy breakdowns of accent analysis to teach actors of all ages various accents ranging from French to Arabic to Brooklyn.
I have personally learned over 13 different accents and coached over a dozen other accents for productions and private lessons. I currently teach Voice & Diction with Matthew Koenig at Utah Tech University.
Since I was ten year old, I have had a passion for writing and sharpened my skills as a playwright in undergrad and my MFA program. I have written a couple ten-minute plays, two one acts, co-published an academic article in The Voice And Speech Review, and written and produced three Staged Readings of my full-length play, Interlocus, most recently presented by Red Magnolia Theatre Company in Baton Rouge, LA for their 2021/22 Readers Series.
I also enjoy designing educational study guides and classroom teaching tools for shows, Theatre History, and film history. Some of my materials have been published on the Louisiana State University website.
Below are samples of my work. I am currently seeking a publisher for Interlocus and create study guides by commission. Please inquire by email.

What People are Saying
"[Tiffany and Sarah's] presentations vocally as well as playing the moments given them by each number are spot-on wonderful. The fact is both ladies have fine, professional singing voices possessing pretty impressive ranges each, with [Sarah] able to reach wonderful stratospheric soprano octaves, and [Tiffany's] notes in her upper voice ringing out like a beautiful bell.
“Tiffany is always so supportive of my acting and singing and encouraged me every step of the way; whether it was in her classes, or for my school theater class, or auditioning for a play. Tiffany also came to watch me in my first middle school production and it made me feel so special that she took the time to come see me perform!"

"Because of Tiffany I was able to audition and successfully be accepted into an Improv team. I love how Tiffany took the time to bring our class together as a team every week before we started practice. She taught us the value of working together in Improv which improved our skills greatly."
