Acting coaching by Drama School audition panellist & leading West End & Screen Actor

About the lesson

I am over the moon to say that, this year, my students gained a place at drama schools including: RADA, LAMDA, GUILDHALL, OXFORD, DRAMA STUDIO and more. What I have learnt through my career as an Actor and from the six years working on the Audition Panels and teaching acting is that you need to show people who you are - through your work - through the words, not somebody you think they want to see. My main goals is helping you find your voice as an Actor. You are a vessel for these characters and stories and how you connect is what makes your artistic voice unique. Why speak the words if they don't vibrate within you? I won't simply direct you and tell you how I think your pieces should be done. My role is to create a safe, inspiring space where you feel at your most free & confident, then fuel your imagination introducing you to techniques that will help you navigate your way through the speech organically. So it feels like yours and no one else's. After all, casting director’s or drama schools Or whoever you are auditioning for - want to see you! They want your interpretation and connection to a piece. YOUR portrayal of these characters. This means when it comes to being redirected if you get a recall audition in any form, you will be able to manoeuvre, change and allow other other ideas to flow through you. I want to you to trust your instincts. Freedom to explore is key.

I approach every Acting student's session completely individual to your needs. That's my job. Helping you find where your unique voice lies. I don't want you to dip your toes in - neither do drama schools! I want you to dive in. Being brave is going to move you forward - and I want to help you find that.

About Lee

I have just finished playing Rosencrantz alongside Ian Mckellen in Hamlet at the Theatre Royal. We are currently the only Rep Company in the UK and have just opened The Cherry Orchard with the same cast.

I will also be playing Rosencrantz in Hamlet the movie, also alongside Ian Mckellen, which was filmed during lockdown.

Since graduating from Drama Centre, I have worked extensively in Theatre and Screen. My debut role was in Much Ado About Nothing, Wyndhams Theatre alongside Catherine Tate & David Tennant. This year I transferred to the West End in the lead role of Kevin Elyot’s play Coming Clean at the Trafalgar Studios. This was the third sell out run. Other credits include A Very Very Very Dark Matter alongside Jim Broadbent at the Bridge Theatre, Coming Clean, Trafalgar Studios, Savage at the Arts theatre where I was nominated Best Actor at the offies. I have also performed at many other venues such as the Park Theatre, Finborough Theatre, King's Head Theatre & The Hope Theatre.

I have recently finished filming feature film The Last Letter From Your Lover which will air on Netflix in 2021 and BBC drama The North Water alongside Colin Farrell and Jack O'Connell, which will also air in 2021. I am also currently appearing in the latest BT Broadband Commercial. Other credits include: Sherlock, Harry Potter & The Goblet of Fire and The Trial of Christine Keeler.

I also write. My short play No More Doughnuts was selected as part of the Make it Beautiful Festival which will be performed in London in September 2021, which I will direct. My Comedy Pilot reached the semi finals for BBC Comedy Writer's Room in 2019 and my piece Art or Suffering is being produced for the Lost Souls Podcast.

I have sat on the drama school audition panels for six years on the BA Acting, MA Acting and Foundation courses. I have taught professional preparation to third year BA Students helping them prepare on life outside of drama school as an Actor. I also designed the Drama Centre summer course on Audition preparation for drama schools in 2019.

I am extremely passionate about championing young actors from all backgrounds and helping them find their unique voice. I feel strongly about actors being taught by teachers that are actually working and in the midst of their own careers - this way we can bring to students a very current experience on a constantly changing industry and also a passion and that is very Alive! Because of this I started coaching students privately four years ago and when the pandemic hit I designed a website called The Audition Room ((concealed information) and started taking everything online. I have moved my main audition prep monthly course online with the focus of providing a community for those auditioning for drama school. I have focused a lot of my attention on helping auditionees transition to a self taped online audition rather than in the room, which most schools are adopting.

I have written articles that have been published in The Stage on various subjects including Auditioning via Self tape, revisiting a West End role as an Actor and I also run a Blog through the Audition Room website.

Who are my students?

My students range from young Actors Auditioning for drama school to professional Actors looking to improve their skills on their screen, text or self tape work. I also give practical career guidance and mentorship on anything from Finding agents to advancing their career to Actor’s looking for their next steps. Having been through it all myself for twenty years (and still going through it daily!) I can offer very relevant advice on what an Actor can do to create career movement and come up with a plan of action in a very competitive sometimes overwhelming industry. This industry can be very tough and sometimes people need to re-find their path and sometimes, re-ignite their passion!

In teaching acting - helping YOU find your connection to a character and to text rather than merely my perception. I will help ignite your imagination, giving you simple tools to find true depth in whatever material you are working on. Also- Improving an Actor’s confidence in a SAFE space which I call an actor’s playground - is one of the best ways to be free to create! This is my goal. ‘Leaving yourself alone’ Is the key to freedom.

Also, due to my extensive experience on the audition panels, those auditioning for drama are a large part of my teaching.

This year my students got offered places at various schools including LAMDA, Drama Studio, Oxford, East 15 and Bristol, RADA, Guildhall.
