About Claire

I was born in Baton Rouge, Louisiana into a prominant banking family and I was the middle child of five daughters. Apparently, I had been a high spirited handfull with an extremely active imagination. I have been told I refused to eat unless a place had been set for my imaginary friend but I do not remember my friend. What I do remember is how I had become every character I related to, from every play, tv show or filmI had seen. Sometimes, I had become the character for a day and other times I had lived as the character for a week or more. I had seen things differently and I had not known why.

After graduating from high school at the age of 17, I had been tested by The Human Engineering Laboratory in Baytown, Texas. It had been then I had discovered I had been and I still am, dyslexic.

​I had consumed everything I had heard and seen and I had learned in uonconventional ways. Unknowingly, my dyslexic gifts had actually helped me to survive but, there had been many scars which my openness, strong will and high spirit have helped to heal. I had acted my way into and out of many a situation and, surviving life had been my stage.

Now, at the age of 57, circumstances and location have introduced me into the film industry and I can't seem to get enough. Although I wish I would have explored the film industry much earlier in my life, it had not been the right time for me and I am not one to cry, very long, over spilled milk. I am a suvivor and I am still absolutely thrilled over the simplest of life's beauty and pleasures. And, I am forever grateful for the love of my two sons, my husband, family and friends.

Unique traits: High dexterity and ambidextrous with very quick reflexes, soft sweet Southern voice, athletic
