An Exclusive 9-Part Interview With
Acting Teacher Wendy Ward
I consider Wendy (pictured here to the left) to be my first real acting teacher. Before I met her, I had studied with other teachers, but none of them helped me to develop my acting skills so quickly and profoundly. What I learned from her in her classes and at her studio is so important for me that I had to share it with you, my visitors to ActingCareerStartUp.com. If you are seriously considering starting an acting career or if you have been acting for a while and not making much progress, then I would strongly recommend you read this entire 9-part interview.
Part 1: How Wendy started teaching and why she founded her acting studio in New York
Part 2: Entrance requirements to the Ward Acting Studio
Part 3: Wendy talks about why it is important to study acting if you are serious about an acting career
Part 4: Wendy goes into depth about the benefits of acting training
Part 5: An interesting story about one actress' audition and why she got the job
Part 6: Wendy talks about Sanford Meisner and his acting technique
Part 7: Here Wendy goes into depth about the characteristics of the Meisner technique of acting and what the benefits are

I want to say you changed my life. I want to be an actress so bad, but i began losing motivation when I couldn't figure out what to do. And then I found you! Thanks to you, I'm taking my first acting classes next month! Yippee!
