Colonel, U.S. Army (Retired)
President, Full Bird Productions, LLC
Full Bird Productions was started by Richard Amott in June 2017 to enable him to pursue his long-time goals of becoming an actor, a voice over artist, and technical military consultant in the entertainment industry. Richard became a member of the Screen Actors Guild-American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (SAG-AFTRA) in 2016 after his recurring role as a member of the Joint Chiefs of Staff on Season Four of House of Cards qualified him for eligibility. He has since reprised this role in Seasons Five and Six of House of Cards bringing a sense of natural ability to the role as he is a highly decorated, retired U.S. Army Colonel, with a long career as a Military Intelligence Officer with Special Operations wartime service in Iraq. Richard’s ability to realistically portray military characters led to his being cast as a British Red Coat officer in AMC's Season 4 of Turn: Washington’s Spies and as a Navy Admiral in Season 7 of Homeland.
Additionally, Richard is a professionally trained all-around voice over actor. Testimonials from his coaches and fellow voice over professionals include:
