Success Stories

The long established London Actors Workshop has been running high quality acting workshops, casting director sessions and industry showcases in the heart of the West End for many years and are delighted to have helped so many develop successful acting careers.

See for yourself how we have helped aspiring actors…

Three months after the course I auditioned successfully for an agent - the LAW class on how to behave at auditions helped a lot. Four months after that I got the lead in a Sky TV promo - for which the class on acting on-camera helped immensely. And two months after that I got a stage role at Equity rate playing the dual lead - undoubtedly thanks to LAW acting classes. At the age of 60 I'm setting out on a new career thanks to LAW!

An excellent course in the company of great people, within 3 days of the showcase I had 2 agents call me and was offered a part in a film, so thanks London Actors Workshop, it wouldn't have happened without you!

Petra Lindblad

  • “John Melainey gave us everything as a director, and this brings great results”

Kemar Downey

  • “Brilliant, loved it, we did so many different things…..enjoyed meeting casting directors and industry people who told us how ‘it is’, stopped me finding out the hard way by myself. Good, motivating people behind us, pushing us.”

Shayne Drummond

  • “Comprehensive, a really good platform for me to go forward. An honour to have Val Colgan on the course. Working on ‘Method’ is very personal and brings you together as a group. Combat was amazing, really useful class”

Solveiga Kizalaite

Matt Graydon

  • “A lot of highlights, Method Acting with Val Colgan to name just one but also the technical practical skills that you’ll need to work in TV. Really good value, it’s well worth the money”
