Pre-enroll for early access. Oscar winner Helen Mirren teaches her first-ever online class.
In 25+ lessons, the Oscar, Golden Globe, Tony, and Emmy winner teaches her process for acting on the stage and screen.
Find freedom in your roles
Oscar, Golden Globe, Emmy, and Tony winner Helen Mirren is one of the greatest actresses of our time. In her first online class, she discusses the dualism that is core to her method: the necessity for mastering technique (craft) and then letting go so that your imagination can take over (art). Learn how to break down a script, research characters, and master techniques so you can transcend them to find freedom in every role.
25+ VIDEO LESSONS
Helen brings you behind the scenes to show you the secrets of her acting technique.
A downloadable workbook accompanies the class with lesson recaps and supplemental materials.
Upload videos to get feedback from the class. Helen will also critique select student work.
We offer full refunds up to 30 days after purchase.
Your class will play in any modern browser.
Take the class at your own pace and in your own time.
