[Revolution] I’ve been blessed to be a working actor in the Film/Television business for over fifteen years now. My training has run the gamut from the Actors Theater of San Francisco to all the “in” Hollywood coaches. After years of acting class, I thought I had seen all that was out there! Boy was
Since attending Coach Banks’ class, I have watched my bookings soar! I’ve booked roles in The Green Lantern, Drive, The Avengers, The Gangster Squad, and various Television shows all since working with Coach Banks. The class focuses on so many things that others miss. We, as actors, should be fluid and aware of our instrument.Acting is not who pretends better, but who understands themselves so deeply that they are able to bring what’s on the page to life through their eyes.
You do this by studying yourself and being overseen in the process by Coach Bank’s watchful eye. There have been so many things I thought I was bringing to auditions for so long, that I found out I was missing. A key to class is being able to watch yourself and see exactly what the casting directors and producers are seeing when they watch you in an audition. Don’t just assume you did your best! Watch yourself and learn. Taking class is like going to the gym for acting. You wouldn’t expect to build muscle by showing up to fitness contests once in a while, and you certainly wouldn’t win that way! You want
to win the role? Train properly beforehand!!! And if you’re going to do it, why not do it with the best!
I’m presently heading off to the Carolina’s to shoot JJ Abram’s new TV show ‘Revolution”. It’s been picked up by NBC.
