Our tutors all currently work in the film and television industry. As well as our acting coaches, including Asa Butterfield (Sex Education), William Moseley(Chronicles of Narnia), David Schaal (The Office, The Inbetweeners), Steve North (Doctor Who, Londons Burning, Eastenders) and Meisner coach Skye Hallam (RADA-trained actress, appeared in The Crown) we have many more acting coaches from all areas of the industry! Learn more about the acting coaches at The Reel Scene.

We accept 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.

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! Most of our graduates leave our courses and gain representation (98% in 2019).

All information will be provided before your course starts, e.g a costume for your shoot, appropriate clothing for your headshots and showcase, pad, pen, printed scripts. We recommend wearing loose-fitting clothing. Bring a bottle of water!

We welcome actors of all ages and levels of experience! If you’re under 16, you’ll need the approval of your parent or guardian, but we welcome parents to come along and watch the classes. Some of our courses may require you to be 18 or older (such as The Event) for example, we hold our showcase in theatres and we have hired pubs for location shoots where alcohol may be served.
