ADVANCED ACTING CLASSEs with Mark Rowley

The Actor’s Community is delighted to announce that Mark Rowley, star of Netflix’s Last Kingdom, and founding member, will lead our online advanced acting class along with other invited leading professionals.

"It is no exaggeration to say these classes have had the most profound impact on my life. Through Marks down to earth, relatable and friendly nature- he guided us through his process. We were able to physically go through his acting process from script to character and then put it into practise ourselves. It has completely changed the way I look at scripts and the development of character forever..."- Katie Fry

Next Advanced/Professional Class coming soon...

Time and Date: TBC

12 Actors

£35 per class / £11.66 per hr

Within classes we will break down the text - ‘detective work’ - to find hidden clues and use your own life to enrich the life of the character. We will then work on scenes from the script and apply the technique. You will find the joy of exploring and creating! 

 

You will study a text provided by the tutor and be expected to prepare a speech of your own choice. These classes are
designed for actors over 18 years of age who have acting experience or some kind of training. They are the perfect starting point for those musical theatre actors who are looking to pivot
into TV and Film.

Note from Mark
'I’m really excited to get involved as an acting coach! I have been so fortunate to have worked with award winning actors and directors throughout my career. I want to pass on what they have so graciously shared with myself...'
