Technical Tuesday: Acting Tips?

Tuesday, 16 May 2017

Time can be a luxury these days and classes can be expensive, so we look to the internet and television to teach us and refresh our skills. Whether you watch Happy Valley, Game of Thrones or Friends you can always learn something from watching others act.

So let's do just that. Here is a special masterclass by none other than Joey Tribbiani. Here, he covers all aspects of acting from warming up to crying on camera. Get ready for the best class of your training and career.

Now let's get serious for a moment. Whether you use these tips (please don't) or study a method, acting all comes down to whether you are living the moment and whatever you use to get there is your own method. You don't have to be 'method' to be an actor nor do you need to do exercises if they don't work for you. Find your own tags and go to's and practice, practice, practice. That is my top acting tip.

And if all else fails I look forward to seeing your 'smell the fart moments'.

P.S. the clips in the video are property of Warner Brothers and do not represent an actual acting class.
