Acting Mentor

Combining my entertainment industry knowledge as an actor, talent manager, and casting director with my career development training, I specialise in actor mentoring and offering career advice and guidance for actors. As an actor, treating your creative work as a business is important. Through actor mentoring, we can build your self-confidence and resilience, identify your brand, ensure your marketing materials are top notch and help you navigate the acting business landscape, with or without an agent.

Mentoring will help you feel more motivated and confident about standing out from the crowd and developing a successful and sustainable career in the entertainment industry

Locations:  Your 1-2-1 actor mentoring sessions last 60 or 90 minutes and occur remotely via Zoom. I accept bookings from clients in the UK, Australia, Europe and the USA. Book 2 or more sessions at the same time and save 15%. Packages can be tailored to meet your specific needs.

"I was so grateful for the really helpful coaching session I had with Emily. We talked about a range of issues, such as confidence and acting related concerns I had as a soon to be graduate. Emily was supportive and really helped me to understand how I could put in place positive strategies to achieve my goals. I'd definitely recommend her to anybody, and particularly actors."

Hannah Roze Lewis, Actor Mentoring

What is Actor Mentoring?

Are you an aspiring actor looking to make it big in the entertainment industry? Then, you already know that talent and dedication are essential. But did you know that having a mentor can be the secret to success in acting?

Working with a coach is not just for beginners – even experienced actors rely on coaches to fine-tune their skills and take their auditions and performances to the next level. A coach brings a fresh perspective, helping actors discover their strengths and weaknesses and guiding them to reach their full potential. An actor mentor is not just a teacher or a coach. They are someone who has walked the path that you want to tread. They understand the industry inside out and can provide valuable insights and guidance that no textbook can offer. A mentor knows what it takes to make it in the competitive world of acting and can help you navigate the challenges and pitfalls along the way. 

 

Having an actor mentor can be invaluable in pursuing a successful acting career and can help you take control of your career path. They can provide personalised feedback, help you refine your skills, offer career advice, and provide a support system that understands the unique challenges that actors face. So, if you're ready to take your acting career to the next level, it's time to consider the transformative power of actor mentoring.

By the session's end, you'll feel more confident and prepared than ever to tackle your audition.
