As an Actress, Acting Coach and Award-winning Film Producer, I have a great passion for helping actors achieve their dreams. My acting courses and 1-2-1 coaching sessions are designed to help professional working actors at any stage in their careers to achieve higher levels of mastery as well as career guidance and support.
I was born in Spain, Valencia. I was raised partially in the Canary Islands, Las Palmas and partially in London, England, I am a Spanish-British, from Reading UK. I have worked in theatre, cinema and TV in Spain and in England. My multicultural background has taught me the importance of being an individual, never imitating, trying to copy or comparing yourself with other talents. There is absolutely no competition in this industry, believe it or not, because no one can compete with your uniqueness. You are your greatest asset.
We have a false belief that one has to be “lucky” to make it as an Actor. I’m currently coaching some of the finest and brightest up and coming to UK Film and TV talent. Their success has nothing to do with luck. It’s all about correct guidance and craft mastery. The empowerment that I’m seeing is game-changing. As someone who has been in this industry for 25 years, I’m happy to be taking an active part in helping others advance.
My students go deep into each character/monologue they dive into Method Acting techniques. They come out of the courses/coaching sessions utterly transformed with a level of versatility, concentration and characterisation, capabilities that are truly powerful. Their confidence, skyrockets so does their ability and their disposition to get exactly the acting work they want.
Over the last 15 years as an Actor’s Coach, I have learnt that most actors approach their career paths in the wrong way. Usually following the masses and doing what everyone else is doing, thus getting what everyone else is getting: ‘Very little.
In this profession, it is imperative to know your ‘why’ why are you doing this? You need to learn about your mission, unveil your purpose and go after your innermost desires with a laser focussed attitude that gives you the confidence you need to become unstoppable.
I deeply believe you can achieve whatever you want. If what you want is to become a masterful Method Actor and to take full control of your acting career you are in the right place. Actors need much more support and the tools to build up their confidence and their career. This is why I have created several courses and advanced acting training programs.
