Hi Tony!
Most people don’t even take the time to tell a person how to reach their goal. I want to thank you for everything and for responding to my messages. Sometimes I just test people to see if they really care about my career and you do. You can continue to send me some tips on how I can accomplish my goals, because you inspire me a lot. Thank you for caring.

Acting Teacher Interview

Interview with Acting Teacher Wendy Ward

Wendy WardOne of the things we try to do here on is to help new and aspiring actors know as much as they can about the acting industry at the beginning of their acting careers. This page consists of links to all parts of an exclusive 9-Part interview with Wendy Ward, founder of the Ward Acting Studio in New York (Wendy was one of my first acting teachers by the way!). We had an hour-long conversation that I broke up into "bitesize" chunks for you. She talks about everything from how she got started in the acting business to why acting training is important to how to spend your time and money at the beginning of your acting career.

You will find the links to the different parts here below. Enjoy!

Part 1: How Wendy got started in the industry, why she created the Ward Acting Studio and what kind of student comes there to study.

Part 2: What Wendy requires of students who come to study with her.

Part 3: The importance of acting training.

Part 4: Other things to know about acting training.

Part 5: An interesting story about one actress' audition!

Part 6: About Sanford Meisner and his acting technique (that Wendy teaches).

Part 7: More on the Meisner technique of acting.

Part 8: What to spend your money on at the beginning of your acting career.

Part 9: Actors & Facebook! (One of Wendy's pet peeves!)
