No Acting Coach can promise you success… if they do you should run away- quickly.

Advice for Young Actors 

The truth is, so many factors go into whether an Actor is successful or not. You might be the best person to audition that day, but you just don’t fit in with the rest of the family being cast, or you're too tall, or you look too much like another actor already in the show. The only thing in your control is to show them your authentic self, at its very best. If you can do this, you win- getting the job would be a bonus.

 

Young Actors need to find a system that works for them, not a one size fits all model, or one that worked 100 years ago when there wasn’t even any television. A good acting technique is something that is personal to you, that moves with the industry and allows you to celebrate your authentic self, warts and all.

Choosing the right Acting coach

For most Actors it's  getting an acting  job that seems to be the focus of what they do. I get it, I was that actor. From the age of 13, I played  leading roles in television and spent 12 years focusing on getting work.

 

However, in my 13 years experience  as an Acting Coach at The Manchester School of Acting, it's those who take their time, work hard and focus on improving their skills that have the most success.  

The right Acting Coach is someone that you feel comfortable with. Who will be honest, supportive and have your best interests at heart. The industry is tough and you need people around you that you can trust.  

 

I am obviously going to suggest myself, but read a little bit about me, head over to The Manchester School of Acting, get a feel for the style of teaching and look at the alumni, and give me a call.

The Young Actor and the Industry- An Introduction

 

 

 

 

This session is designed for Young Actors (and their parents), who are serious about pursuing a career as an Actor.

During the online 1-1, 60-minute session I will spend time working practically with the young actor, looking at their acting technique and how we can build on the skills they already have. I will then chat with their parents about how they can support their child and how they can navigate what is, a demanding industry. Topics may include.

  • Acting Technique

  • Self Tape Auditions

  • A Positive Mindset

  • Advice on the Industry and the mistakes to avoid.

  • How the Industry works.

This session is designed to give your child the skills and advice to help them be the very best actor they can be and give the parents a better understanding of how to support them. It does not promise that your child will get acting work, no one can promise that, and if they do you should run away quickly.

The Young Actor and the Industry- Audition SOS

 

 

Got an audition and need a little help? A lot of Young Actors feel like an audition is a test of their acting ability.

“Is this good enough?”

“Am I what they are looking for?”

“Am I doing it right?”

If this sounds familiar, then this 20-minute session could help. It will take place on the day before or the day of the audition. We will have a final chat about the script and the mindset that will help to deliver the very best authentic read.
