"Tony...Thank you for everything. You've been a real pleasure. I thank you and Alice (Halle's on-screen character) thanks you. Have a drink on us. Love, Halle" - Halle Berry, Oscar, Emmy, and Golden Globe Winner
“After working with Tony I have been asked several times where my American speech patterns came from. The ultimate testament of Tony’s dialect coaching was recently when I was voting here in BC...an elections officer mistook me (I am Canadian) for an American by my accent alone, reminding me that Americans cannot vote in provincial elections!!!"
- Dylan Playfair, Leo Winner
“I had such a fantastic time working with you. Honestly, it was such a pleasure. I really appreciate your approach to (dialect) work and never once did you put pressure on me. I have had experience with other dialect coaches in the past and it has most definitely felt like that, so thank you very much for making it fun!
“Tony not only helped me with perfecting my American accent, he gave me easy fundamental tools and exercises to maintain a natural accent. His accent work also crossed over to my acting technique. Since my sessions with him, I have successfully booked roles on Stargate Universe and Supernatural. I can't thank Tony enough.”
“I had the good fortune of working with Tony to prepare for an important audition. This was my first time working with a dialect coach and he set me completely at ease. He was knowledgeable, kind, and dramatically improved my audition. He is a master at dialect training but also has the unique insight of being able to break down the scene and give phenomenal acting notes to enhance your work. I can say with complete assurance that anytime I have any dialect needs, I will be calling Tony!”
“Tony Alcantar is a highly intuitive and gifted Accent and Dialect Coach. Having worked with numerous coaches in both Los Angeles and Vancouver over the past 10 years, Tony is by far the best I have trained with. We are very lucky to have Tony here and I highly recommend him as a coach for both auditions and dialect training!”
- Stacey Barrington, Actress and Founder of West Coast Actor’s

- Martin Freeman, Emmy and BAFTA Winner, Golden Globe nominee

- Chad Oakes, producer FARGO, Emmy winner and Gemini nominee
"I approached Tony Alcantar for help with learning an American accent for Mr. Young as I feel comfortable with him and feel he supports my efforts as a young actor. (To date I have completed 81 episodes of this show) Tony's knowledge with comedic timing has also helped me with my always challenging job on Mr. Young. Tony gives very clear messages and breaks down what he is teaching so that it is easy to understand. I would recommend Tony as an on-set dialect coach.”
- Gig Morton, Leo Nominee
