Those Who Can, Teach

I once had a teacher (yes a teacher) say to me that 'those who can't act, teach'. I could not disagree with this more.

I currently (alongside acting and filmmaking) teach Film and TV to kids from 5 - 18 at PQA and professional actors at Acting Up. Yes these are jobs to me to pay my rent but they are also so rewarding, make me learn about how other people work and also have helped me grow in confidence and as an actor.

There is honestly no better feeling than having a 6 year old looking up to you with huge amounts of respect for following your dreams and showing them that anything is possible.

I believe as humans it is the most important thing we can do and leave this planet with having done. To teach another person is the greatest gift you can give.

We are always learning as actors and performers and the more you can share the more you get back.

I hope that even when I am where I want to be as an actor and a filmmaker I still have the time to teach others to work and follow their dreams.

My favourite teacher at Bird College was the voice teacher as I had many chats with her about jot doing dance and wanting to act and she was the only one that told me I could. 

To inspire and help others is what we should all be doing so let's change that saying to 'Those who can, teach'.
