“Gary’s ability to get to the core of any scene and provide a concise, clear and true way to approach acting
has been a revelation to me. I was booking work but often felt I lacked technique and consistency.
He immediately stripped everything back and started laying foundations in my work that had never been
there. I now go to him with every new role I take on and we build a character from the bottom up.
He is brilliant to work with and like any great coach he inspires, always digs out the truth and isn’t afraid
to push me to the limit and for that I hold him in the highest regard.”

As one of London’s top acting coaches, I coach actors to make choices that are expressive and highly affecting, so their performances come to life in a way that is compelling to audiences and to make auditions effective and unforgettable to casting directors and directors a like.
My sessions will help you remove the guess-work from the process of acting and help you to establish faith in your own work, while lending conviction to everything you do.
Work closely with me and you will develop a deeper understanding of any material you’re presented with, increase your emotional depth and expand your behavioural range. Our collective goal as we work together will be your personal growth and fulfilling your potential as a fully-functioning actor.
With 30 years experience in acting, I know what it takes to be successful, to land the job and to then fullfil your role to the very best of your ability. I have coached hundreds of actors for castings and role development within a number of high-profile Feature Films, TV Series & Theatre Productions, including Lars Von Trier’s ‘Nymphomaniac’, HBO’s ‘Game Of Thrones’, BBC’s ‘Peaky Blinders’, National Theatre’s ‘The Great Wave’ and Donmar Warehouse’s ‘The Lady From The Sea’. The results I help my clients achieve are specific, measurable and proven.

- Preparation for Castings & Self-Tapes
