Auditionhack.com founder and Royal Central School of Speech and Drama BA Acting Student offering drama school entrance/acting lessons. My coaching toolkit is tailored to the client's personality.

Methodology

My Teaching Method is divided in three core parts :

1. Finding Great Monologues :

I will help you to find what resonates the most with your personality and cultural heritage, and that will inform greatly your monologue research.

2. Building a Rich Performance :

We will work on having well-rounded monologues that display a character journey, great tension, a developed imaginary world and physical embodiment. At the end of our work you will not only speak the words but you will see, feel, hear, and live in the moment.

3. Being ready for redirection

This is the most challenging part of most recalls. Therefore I will test your ability to think on your feet, to stretch your imagination and to be open to all types of new contexts for your monologues that the panel could throw at you.

Experience

I’m Axel, and I’m currently on the BA Acting of the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama. Before that I have been working as a professional actor, getting visibility and a few jobs thanks to my former agent. Besides, I am the founder of auditionhack.com, and decided to launch a coaching service after realising that few drama school audition coaches offer preparation that is very specific to the current audition process in top drama schools. The way Drama Schools audition candidates evolves regularly, and I wanted to make sure that I can prepare applicants with the most up to date information, having been through that process myself recently. I have recently expanded my services to self tapes and general audition coaching.

Perfect! Axel is a great coach! I took with him 5 hours to prepare my audition and I got all tips I needed to succeed. He knows perfect exercices to express feelings and emotions while you are acting. I passed my audition and I strongly recommend him if you want to get into Top drama schools ;)

M
Maud

Perfect! Axel has a very positive attitude and makes you feel relaxed and at ease so that you can do your best work. He looks at your speeches and helps you to approach them in different ways to bring out the best in you. I would absolutely recommend Axel to aspiring actors :)

Axel's response

Maud is such a pleasure to work with. She is very flexible with redirection and likes to challenge herself which makes the work very exciting!

T
Tamara

Perfect! Axel’s technique challenges you to understand the character in order to deliver an exceptional performance.

I started out as an aspiring actress without an understanding on how to analyse various characters. This is where Axel’s expertise exceeds. In a short period of working with Axel, I’m more confident to be able to take on difficult roles. Amazing tutor.

Axel's response

A real pleasure to work with Tamara. She is very flexible and open to to redirection!

My session with Axel was incredibly helpful, he is warm and instantly put me at ease which helped me to feel comfortable enough to be open to his guidance. I could feel myself improving throughout the session. Axel worked to get the best out of me by getting me to think for myself through questions and suggestions rather than just telling me what to do which I really enjoyed. His passion for acting comes through and is so inspiring. I would highly recommend him!

Océane

I had worked with him when I was preparing for my final performance examination at a regional conservatory.

I successfully passed the examination and the tips, advices and lessons he had given me definitely guided me throughout my examination period.

His advices are thorough, precise and meticulous. He’s also really friendly and caring.

I would recommend him to anyone be it for drama lessons or audition or casting calls preparation lessons.

I've known Axel for many years, he is an extremely talented and passionate Actor. He has built AuditionHack which is a platform where aspiring actors can find advice on how to get into drama school which is a testament of his interest in helping others. I've worked with him throughout my audition process and his attention to detail was a big part in me uncovering new ways of embodying my characters.

Interview with Axel

QUESTION 01 | 08
When did you start practicing? How did this passion find you?
Axel — I started coaching a year and a half ago. After spending a lot of time discussing with acting coaches, casting directors, agents, drama school teachers and students, I realised that there was a need for an up to date platform helping people to get into drama school or acting, which led me to create auditionhack.com. As the website's audience grew into the thousands, I realised that there was a need for a coaching tailored to people's personalities, whether they want to get into drama school or begin their acting journey.
QUESTION 02 | 08
Which artists or works affect you the most?
Axel — So many of them! In the UK Daniel Kaluuya has recently been one of my biggest inspirations, he makes the work seem so easy. Nonso Anozie and Rufus Sewell are Central's Alumni who also blow me away as to how natural they appear on screen. Recently in the US, Edi Gathegi has also been a huge discovery for me. Australian Dacre Montgomery also gave the universe an acting (and self tape) masterclass that will stay with us for a while. And finally, in France, Omar Sy has been the international French star the world has been waiting for!
QUESTION 03 | 08
What are the qualities and skills required to succeed in this area?
Axel — I think as an actor the most important quality is listening to the other actor. I also think it is extremely important for an actor to know themselves, their strengths and weaknesses, their values... And only then should they start getting to know the character. In doing so, they will know what roles are easier/harder for them and I will help them to bridge the gap between their own personality and circumstances vs the character's personality and circumstances.
QUESTION 04 | 08
What is the most valuable advice you can give to help someone stay focused on creative projects?
Axel — If you want to be a professional actor my first advice would be to try and have that other thing/job that can get you money and keep you going. A lot of actors can't sustain the acting lifestyle because they struggle to pay the rent and that will affect your mental health which in turn will affect your acting work and process. I would also say that overall it's key to try and be happy outside of acting, trying to have healthy relationships with friends, family, and partners. If you do that you'll be a fulfilled individual and I can guarantee that it will come across in your acting.
QUESTION 05 | 08
How would you describe your passion; how does it make you feel?
Axel — It makes me feel fulfilled, curious, excited for the next discovery about the character, their psychology, their physicality, their circumstances!
QUESTION 06 | 08
What creative achievements are you particularly proud of?
Axel — I am proud that I got into one of the best drama schools in the country, as well as signing with a UK Acting Agent and Voice Agent, as well as writing my first full length play.
QUESTION 07 | 08
Have you ever been surprised by a student; by their ability or quick progression?
Axel — I have! One of my students started acting only a year ago but has achieved an incredible progression, starting to work on feature films and meeting Hollywood actors.
QUESTION 08 | 08
Being a Superprof is an art! What is your secret?
Axel — Listening to who I have in front of me and tailoring my coaching based on their personality, desires, and goals.
