Sylvia Day - actor

 

"Sylvia is one talented lady. She inhabits her characters, giving them real resonance - and she has an uncanny ability to play intriguing people who are both real and really entertaining. She finds the poignant inside the hilarious, and plays a wide range of personalities with remarkable ease. She is a gifted storyteller with an eye for quirky character details that elevate the material and make you yearn to meet the people she portrays."
