"Claire has a natural presence on screen that immediately elevated any material I had written for her. She is impossibly quick and funny. Effortlessly able to hit emotional beats with a heart-breaking sincerity, then turn on a dime and make you laugh with a look. What little direction I gave her, she took with a positive attitude, and when given license, improvised lines I only wish I had written. She was nothing short of an absolute joy to work with." (Max Sterling, Dir. Amanda Gelfling's Imperial Closet)
"such an outstanding performance. In a couple pages of dialog, she delivered a intimate message and hit a home run." (American Son)
[She has] a “girl-next-door” quality who could also move with the skill of a dancer.. every moment felt spontaneous" (The Daily Brief)
"Hampsey’s ability to express character from behind the camera reaches an explosive climax at the moment she is struck by the truck.. the effect is fast and extremely subtle, but her naturalistic work here helps sell the visceral power of the collision, making us feel as though we are right there with her" (The Daily Brief)
