“With German as my first language, I realized soon after coming to the US that my casting opportunities were very limited. Everyone asked me if I could sound American. Since I always wanted to study with the best, I asked around. And all roads led to Shane Ann.
She has made it possible for me to work as an American actor. It often happens that the people I work with, or read for, don’t know that I wasn’t born and raised here in the United States. It surprises them when they find out, and all I ever tell them are three words: “Shane Ann Younts”. – Dominik Teifenthaler
