Samuel L. Jackson

Teaches Acting

Get into Character

As a kid, Samuel L. Jackson stuttered so badly that he stopped talking for almost a year. Today he’s one of the world’s most successful actors, with roles in over 100 films, including Pulp Fiction and The Avengers. For the first time, the Oscar nominated star teaches how he creates memorable characters, powerful performances, and a long-lasting career. Learn to master auditions, analyze scripts, and find the truth in every role you play.


Watch, listen, and learn as Sam teaches his first-ever acting class.


A downloadable workbook accompanies the class with lesson recaps, assignments, and supplemental material.


Upload videos to get feedback from the class. Sam will also answer select student questions.
