SIRIUS ABOUT ACTING
Actors with Ambition
Our Head of Acting Gayle will help you find that inner Oscar Winner.
Have you ever been in a cinema and looked around you to see that every single person around you is silent, eyes unblinking, maybe just a tear running down their cheek and a piece of popcorn frozen half way between the bag and mouth. Chances are you are watching a film that no doubt has been well written and directed, but also beautifully acted. In fact, some of the best actors are the ones that can take a poor storyline and turn it into a masterpiece. Although, once again, the talent that you are born with can be a factor, we believe that of all the elements of the performing arts, this is one that can be most easily developed at any age. What you will need though is an ability to understand a character by reading a script, to listen to direction, be confident in your abilities, to remember lines and work well in a team. As with everything at Sirius, we will keep you generally in your comfort zone, but gently stretch you to build you confidence and learn and develop without even realising you are being taught anything. Could you be the next Hollywood or even better, UK based star to emerge. It’s very possible with application and ambition. If you’ve read the other sections, you will know what I’m going to say next. Indeed, you are right Have Fun!!
