I specialise in providing actors with the necessary tools to explore the work in a deep and meaningful way, while concentrating on, and prioritising, "Play" and the actors well being. Using the later work of Stanislavsky, elements of the work of Michael Chekhov and the psychologist Mihaly Cziksentmihaly, my process encourages the actor to engage with their imagination and inviting them to exist in a state of “Flow”. While at the same time making interesting, imaginative, entertaining and informed choices.
I am an experienced acting teacher and facilitator. I teach and direct at Mountview Theatre Academy, where I also sit on the audition panel, Arts Educational and other established theatre academies.I am a graduate of the MA Actor Training programme at Royal Central School of Speech and Drama.
I also trained as an actor, graduating from The Gulidhall School of Music and Drama. I have performed in theatres such as The Royal Court, The Globe, The Donmar Warehouse,The Almeida ,The Bush Theatre, The Gate, and theatres across the U.K., Europe and The United States. I have also performed extensively on film and television, working with directors such as Joe Wright, Mike Leigh and David Yates.

Roger taught me at drama school. Still to this day he has been one of, if not the most inspiring teachers I’ve had. He’s an actor so he gets it. He had a way of communicating that other directors and teachers couldn’t and it made such a difference. He’s funny and imaginative and makes it fun! That project changed me as an actor and I hope to work with him again one day!
Roger was the first director I worked with at drama school whose experience in the industry shaped how he worked with us. He provided a safe space for us to perform, make mistakes, laugh, and ultimately grow. It was the first step of many on the road to professional acting, and we couldn’t have had a better, more equipped guide.
I’ve know Roger for around 20 years. Had the pleasure of acting on stage and radio with him. He is a gifted actor, clear, trustworthy, willing to play and take risks. He respects and supports other actors and works with you to create the most powerful interpretation of the piece of drama you’re working on. He’s hard working and diligent. I’d definitely book him!
Roger is one of the most talented actors I’ve ever worked. He’s a genius at communicating what he wants to do in a scene and what he wants from you. He does it simply and succinctly. He cuts through everything and allow you to act out the truth. I cannot recommend him enough for any aspiring actor to have as a tutor.
I have worked with Roger, he stepped in at very short notice and blew the other actors away with his energy and talent. I would work with him again in a heartbeat, and as a tutor I guarantee he has bucket loads full of advice and tips.
He is one of the beat actors I have ever met. He is a wonderful father and a truly inspiring teacher
Roger Evans is the best. He’s not only one of the loveliest people, He’ s also a brilliant actor and a warm and generous teacher. He’s honest and encouraging but extremely insightful and specific- which is just what you need. I would Highly recommend him!
I worked with Roger on one of my early films in 2012 when I had very little experience on set. He taught me all about improvisation technique and helped with my craft and was so open about his. I was lucky as I got to work with him and learn from him. I’ve made 30 films and three tv roles since then so he definitely gave me sound advice which I’ve used to this day as well as confidence. I highly recommend tutoring with him!
An amazing actor with a vast knowledge of the industry. Incredibly personable, kind and supportive.
If he's as incisive and informative in tuition as he was on stage, then you're in for a treat.
