Learn to act with a private acting coach on Superprof

“Study, find all the good teachers and study with them, get involved in acting to act, not to be famous or for the money. Do plays. It’s not worth it if you are just in it for the money. You have to love it.” -Philip Seymour Hoffman


Most of us have been enchanted by the movies. We simply love going to the theatres to watch our favourite actors give it their all in the latest flick. The variety of film genres that are currently produced today make it possible for everyone to enjoy motion pictures. Also, recently, thanks to streaming services such as Netflix and Amazon Prime, we can watch movies without ever leaving our homes. One thing we can rest assured of is the fact that no matter how terrible a situation we find ourselves in, movies will continue to be made because stories need to be told no matter what. Some are so inspired by the stars of cinema that they actually develop an interest in aspects of film such as writing, directing, editing, or acting. And, while it’s quite a cruel and unforgiving craft to get involved in, for some, acting must be at least tried. Acting students in the city of Edinburgh can continue to hone their artistic abilities when seeking the guidance of a professional tutor.

Acting Methods

Most of the world’s best actors have studied acting and practised their skills to become more seasoned thespians. Depending on the acting coach, there are unique styles of acting methods that may be learnt. Such as? First and foremost, we’re certain that you’ve heard of method acting. The most popular acting style, method acting takes the actor to an emotional place that helps them draw out their feelings and make the scene as realistic as possible. Established by Lee Strasberg, method acting has been used by actors such as Daniel Day-Lewis, Dustin Hoffman, and Meryl Streep. Method acting encourages past feelings to come out and to stay in character on and off the screen. Secondly, the Meisner technique is another type of acting that is well-known to a lot of up incoming acting experts. The Meisner technique is the complete opposite of method acting since it encourages the actor to trust their instincts and get as far away from their head as possible. Being “at the moment” is one of the best ways to describe Meisner’s techniques since he wants actors to be free and avoid strict rules that don’t allow for spontaneous moments of greatness. Thirdly, probably the most ancient method of acting is known as the Stanislavski method. The Stanislavski method was developed by Russian artist Konstantin Stanislavski, hence the name, and was the first standardized way of acting ever developed. Stanislavski techniques are studied by many aspiring actors across the UK and abroad. What are some of the primary characteristics of Stanislavski’s epic acting ways? The Stanislavski methods include being as real and honest to the audience as possible. Before Stanislavski, in Russia, and other places, acting was primarily superficial and without realism. Before concluding this section, it’s important to state that no matter which acting method you choose to study, you will immerse yourself effectively into the world of actors and you will slowly work your way towards becoming a seasoned veteran; Oscars here we come!

Tips to Learn Acting

Before the possibility of even having your name called during an Academy Awards ceremony, you need to take into consideration the helpful tips and tricks of experienced actors. Nonetheless, since acting is an in-demand field with a lot of aspiring actors who “claim” to know how it’s done, there is a lot of information that is more confusing than helpful. However, when looking at various online references, there are a few tips that are often repeated and that boast fantastic results when taken into consideration. Such as? Firstly, when learning how to act, most experts will suggest that researching for a role really pays off since you will be better prepared to react in a way that is true to the character and the situation between the other actors on stage or film. Researching or preparing the role also means trying your best to memorize lines. Secondly, since acting is a collaborative process, don’t be difficult to deal with but rather do all you can to work well with your fellow actors, director, writer, costume designer, makeup artists, etc. You will enjoy the process of acting much more fully since you’ll be involved with all members of the crew and you will root for each other's successes. A third tip would be to never fear trying new things. Actors must be fearless to make a name for themselves in show business. Try new things and don’t be disappointed if they don’t work out right away; at least you gave it your best shot! Trust your instincts and recognize that acting is a constant learning experience.
