I am not currently working on any roles, but I love acting. It's been my dream for a long time, and this Masterclass was so helpful. Thank you!
Loved this class and all of Natalie's insights and tips and tools and her genuine respect for the art of acting <3
It was fantastic to hear from a profesional actress things that you already know and learn some tools that will help you to improve your art. Thanks to Natalie Portman and all the Masterclass team.
I´ve learned that there are is a generational way to act. Natalie has a very different approach on acting from Helen because of their generational differences. Both are great and right, and it is helpful to mix them both. Thanks for reducing the time on videos and go to the core right away.
