We accept English-speaking actors over 16 years old who have the right to study in the UK and are able to meet the financial obligations of the course. Because some of our workshops and courses can be quite intensive and you’ll be working with other actors and a variety of professionals in sometimes demanding situations, we require a self-tape audition and an interview with CEO Alex Fidelski before you can join the course.

Take a look through our acting courses and find the one that suits you! If you can’t attend acting classes in person, why not check out our Online Acting Course, or try The Actors Gym to take part in our range of online acting classes?

Many of our courses and workshops include filmed exercises and scenes, such as The 6-Day Intensive Acting Course, The Asa Butterfield Masterclass and The Screen Acting Year Course. We are one of the few professional acting courses that shoot scenes with our actors every month as part of our Screen Acting Year Course. We want to get you in front of the camera as often as possible, after all, that’s what acting is about! You’ll shoot scenes to practise the particular skills you’ve learned, and these scenes will be edited by our in-house professionals including Joe Nurding (https://www.boommonkey.co.uk/) and editor Lucas Young (Television New Zealand, Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King). These scenes are crucial for you to learn about framing, continuity, performance, the effects of lighting and directing and much more. You’ll receive the scenes as files and unlisted YouTube links.

Our Screen Acting Year Course and 6-day Intensive Acting Course both come with headshots!  Not only will we schedule a professional headshot shoot for you with an agency like Pure Headshots, but we will also teach you how to get the best out of your headshots and what casting directors look for in headshots.

We accept English-speaking actors over 18 years old who have the right to study in the UK and are able to meet the financial obligations of the course.

A good agent will only sign an actor once they’ve had a chance to see them work, to see how they work with other actors and crew, and have reviewed their showreel and headshots. Agents from RS Talent regularly attend workshops and classes (we are always looking for new talent) and may recommend further training if you show promise. That’s why it’s great to come to these workshops, meet people, make friends and make yourself known! Many of our graduates leave our courses and go on to gain representation.

As well as the team from the Reel Scene and talent agency RS Talent, we bring in special guests to run each of the workshops. The choice of guest will depend on their availability or work commitments. In many cases, we work with David Schaal (Jay’s Dad on The Inbetweeners, Glyn from The Office, and a veteran actor from many other shows) or Steve North (Doctor Who, Holby City, Eastenders, London’s Burning). All of our coaches actually work in the industry. You can see our full list of coaches on the coaches page.

All information will be provided before your course starts, however in general you need to bring: a costume for your shoot if applicable, appropriate clothing for your headshots, pad, pen, printed scripts. We recommend wearing loose-fitting clothing. Bring a bottle of water!
