The Actor's Community

The Actor's Community (The AC) are a global group of award winning actors and industry professionals who work in film, television, and theatre .

Our AC Ambassadors, including BAFTA & Oscar winners, offer one to one sessions for the community and are fully established in the industry with the shared goal of helping others.

Our mission is to remove barriers between emerging talent and established talent, sharing insights that are often kept behind closed doors, giving everyone a fairer shot at a career doing what they love. 

We offer a safe space for actors to explore and experiment, and for film makers to take their projects to the next level, providing a wide range of services led by industry professionals.

Whether you are looking to explore new types of roles, keep focused on upcoming projects or are just starting out in your screen career, the AC is a place where you can grow, connect with likeminded creatives, and continue to build a strong foundation of skills and a powerful network.
