As a professional acting coach, there is nothing more exciting than getting the news that a client has booked a role that we coached on together. Sometimes, because of the nature of our business, a client even has to coach multiple times to get through all of the layers of casting for a major role in a big project. The perseverance and determination it takes to face each of these layers of challenge is immense. Katherine Leask broke through layer by layer and has now booked a fantastic role in Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. I am so thrilled, so proud, so elated to say that I have the honor to work with such amazing talent. Katherine you rock!!!

Introducing the witches and wizards of the west coast! Here is the first look at the Harry Potter and the Cursed Child San Francisco Cast, for the first time together in the rehearsal room.

"Employment of actors is projected to grow 10 percent from 2014 to 2024, faster than the average for all occupations. Job growth in the motion picture industry will stem from continued strong demand for new movies and television shows."

Transcript of "My journey from Marine to actor"

Thoughtful and humorous exploration of his journey from Marine to actor...
“The military and theater communities are actually very similar. You have a group of people trying to accomplish a mission greater than themselves; it's not about you. You have a role, you have to know your role within that team. Every team has a leader or director; sometimes they're smart, sometimes they're not. You're forced to be intimate with complete strangers in a short amount of time; the self-discipline, the self-maintenance.”

TED Talk Subtitles and Transcript: Before he fought in the galactic battles of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Adam Driver was a United States Marine with 1/1 Weapons Company. He tells the story of how and why he became a Marine, the complex transition from soldier to civilian -- and Arts in the Armed...
