(see Full Biography for further details)

Having worked as a professional actor for over 35 years and having auditioned hundreds of times with significant success, Masterson has developed techniques that can help actors to raise their chances of getting the role for theatre, film, tv and commercials. He coaches professionals to up their game and to develop on-camera presence and stillness.

He also coaches aspiring actors for drama school entry from selection of audition speeches to delivery.


Auditioning for drama school is a nerve-wracking process. It is not just about learning a few speeches and then expecting your talent to do the rest...

The key is to make an immediate impact without appearing either fearful or overconfident. To deliver your audition speeches in different styles and to be able to make 'adjustments' to your performance if and as requested. To be ready for the questions that will come your way and to know the questions that you should be asking them.

I can assist from the selection of appropriate monologues for the actor/actress, through development of context and delivery all the way to personal attendance at the audition if required. I can also advise as to the most appropriate schools to apply to and how to prepare for each audition process. Guy Masterson

ACTING COACHING: Auditioning, Performance & Presence (professionals)

Guy Masterson offers one-on-one training for professional actors wishing to develop techniques for auditioning for theatre, tv, film & commercials as well as general development, presence building, on-camera technique.

With 30 years experience in the biz working on countless productions in all mediums and having trained at UCLA and LAMDA, I am well versed in the many techniques actors use to get to where they need to go.

I can pinpoint an actor's strengths and weakness and apply techniques that will strengthen them, give them confidence and develop presence. I can help eliminate ticks and develop techniques that will give an actor an edge. Most importantly, I can freshen an actor's approach to both auditioning, rehearsing and on-camera work.

Over the years, I have developed an original philosophy of acting and an approach to performance that can eliminate the obstacles that cloud an actor's effectiveness and reduce presence. My approach is to give the actor a surefire method of finding the 'truth and moment' in their work by reaching into their empathetic core and eliminating all unnecessary thought and over-complication, thereby releasing clarity, honesty and power - an irresistable combination.

1) Auditioning:
Interpretation of script, character & movement. Determining what the casting director looking for. How can you make an honest impact?

2) Development:
One-to-one training with an actor to establish techniques in use, additional techniques to add, ticks to eliminate and to develop confidence and presence.

2) Philosophy:
One-to-one coaching in my philosophy of acting, developed over 30 years and over 3000 solo performances.
