You may be surprised to know that most acting schools in the UK do not teach the acting technique used by Hollywood’s acting elite – Method Acting – in detail nor in its entirety. This is what we specialise in.

Method Acting is used by many, if not all, of the world’s leading film actors including Al Pacino, Robert De Niro, Meryl Streep, Angelina Jolie, Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Daniel Day-Lewis, Edward Norton, Charlize Theron, Bradley Cooper and Forest Whitaker, to name a few. They use this technique for a reason – it produces truly outstanding acting.
