Thank you for sharing knowledge and wisdom to all... thank you.
I want to become a director and this masterclass was very useful for understanding the actor's job and thus learning how to better manage the relationship between the director and the actor. I am a great fun of Natalie, I think she is a great teacher, very humble and very clear in her explanations. I'm very sorry for my English, maybe I should also do a language masterclass
This class was outstanding. So real, so insightful and so inspiring!
