This has been my favorite Master Class course to date. I love that she shared the dialect coaching with us, as well as the green screen information. I hope Master Class will ask her back to tell us more. She was so generous with her information, it was enlightening. Love it!
This class was very inspiring and helpful. This has given me the tools to approach acting in a way that I would have never thought to do before.
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!
I'm not an actor, but I'm a writer and storyteller and found this so interesting. It's always interesting to listen to someone who's excellent and successful in their field. She is very engaging, knowledge, and just overall a good person.
