"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..."

The Actor’s Community is delighted to announce that Mark Rowley, one of the leading actors on Netflix’s The Last Kingdom, will be taking a weekend intensive course.
Within the class 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 coach/mentor 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 and some kind of training.
