Chloe has a very light Edinburgh/East Coast Scottish accent and at times you’d think she is Neutral English. She can switch her accents around confidently having moved regularly around the UK since being a child. Born in Edinburgh, she spent time growing up in both Glasgow and Essex. The wide range of accents she has used across her screen work are a testament to her ability; To Walk Invisible (Yorkshire), Brief Encounters (Sheffield), Burn Burn Burn (Southern Welsh), Carnival Row (Glaswegian) The Crown, Emma, Troy (RP), War & Peace, Inspector Calls (Neutral British), The Victim (strong Edinburgh), Bug (Essex), Temple (London), Mariel of Redwall - Audiobook (West Country)...and the list goes on! Ultimately Chloe is a reliable choice for most British accents.
