I’m new to the idea of acting, but after this masterclass, I’m sold and what to try it out for myself. The way that Natalie describes that acting is about being having empathy and caring about another persons life, is so refreshing. I loved this MasterClass!
I've completed a few master classes and this was the best. Natalie shares so much information, very detailed and she is so clearly passionate about what she does, but wanting to really benefit others also. Very inspiring!
Really enjoyed her spirit and she made it fun to learn and the techniques that shes uses and that she's learned over the years are great! I love the workbook too!
I really enjoyed this class with Natalie Portman. I liked that she said you have to be a good person not only for acting but also for life. I also liked that she said you have to feel for other people in order to be a good actor.
