Studying and working with Lucy and Jesse has been an absolute joy. They have a gift for creativity, encouragement and emotional intelligence.
Lucy and Jesse became my mentors and working with them is one of the best things you can do for your craft. They are all about empowering you to trust your instincts, be present and bring yourself to role. I’ve trained and worked with them for over 3 years and will keep doing it as much as possible. They make me fall in love with the craft even more.
Jesse and Lucy changed my life as an Actor with their authentic approach to the craft. They are both incredibly gifted and caring and two of the most encouraging people I have met.
The unreserved generosity Lucy and Jesse bring into the creative space has allowed me to experience some truly transformative work. Through practising with a safe Actor/Director ‘alchemy’, I have found it possible to create uninhibited and instinctually believable work without any fear of my theatrical choices. This has been the safest, most inclusive and trustworthy acting circle i’ve ever worked with. Not only is The Actor's Diner a place for cultivation, its helped me create some of the most provocative theatre in my 13 year career.
Lucy and Jesse are two of the most supportive people I have ever met. I cannot express how much I have grown as an actress since meeting them or how much support they have shown me. I would rather have no one else at my side to help to grow as an artist, or as a person.
Lucy and Jesse are by far the best acting teachers I’ve had. They’ve helped me become a better actor and always make sure we leave the studio ready to overcome all the challenges the industry has to offer.
