Testimonials

"Tom is an excellent screen acting teacher and a key part of our screen acting team. His Meisner based approach is perfect for introducing young actors to the world of screen acting.  He has developed innovative online training methods and workshops during lockdown, allowing his students to get the most out of his sessions."

Stuart Parkins - Head of Screen Acting and Recorded Media

"I had the pleasure to work with Tom for a few months and it was a journey I will carry near my heart not only for my acting career but also for life in general.

His sense of timing when guiding the actor challenges you to step out of the comfort zone in a gentle and precise way, which was incredibly rewarding to experience.

His knowledge in the Meisner technique helped me to become more present in my acting with a big emphasis on learning to listen better and showing up authentically.

Tom has an amazing ability to create a safe, fun and relaxed atmosphere which helped a lot with opening up for the work... and his priceless one-liners can only be experienced in the heat of the moment!"

"Tom's Cold Reading class is absolutely invaluable to the professional actor and the ever increasing demands in the audition room. After just one class you totally see a shift in your approach to cold readin, It's exciting and empowers you.

This class gives you the confidence to connect truthfully to the script without having read it first, giving you the space to deliver an outstanding and fully connected performance under pressurised situations. A first read in front of a director or casting director in an audition setting is often nerve wracking;

Tom's class helps remove those nerves or barriers. I highly recommend his class to anyone serious about their craft and increasing their chances of booking the job."

"Working with Tom has been a challenging, inspiring and impactful journey to becoming an actor.

He is consistent and dedicated to his role as a tutor.

Tom works through developing a clear understanding of each students’ journey and supporting them effectively as they grow. As an actor himself he recognises the struggles students endure and remains invariably empathetic and compassionate. In addition to maintaining professionalism as a tutor Tom demands that his teaching space remain open and supportive.

This safe environment allows students to explore and play without judgement, making it a wonderful step for new actors and those developing their craft. Following his course students confidently start booking work, creating their own and securing their future in this wild creative business."

"I trained with Tom for an intense half a year. He is a wonderful person and a stellar acting coach - his warm and stern approach steers you to find your vulnerability and authenticity and to use the new-found skills as an actor. He is very present in training and gives students his full attention. I warmly recommend Tom as a coach for anyone who wishes to gently but firmly be pushed out of their comfort zone to learn something new. You'll get your money's worth!"
