Do You Have the Talent to Pursue Acting?

There never will be another you, there never has been before, and there never will be another you in the future.

You have your own special gifts to give to the world given from the source of all life. Believe in the intelligence of this source, it has a purpose and a reason for all that is done.

Our work is to express the truth of our experience, not what we think the writer intended, or what we think will be best received by our audience, but what we honestly feel in the moment, every moment.

This is the gift of information from our perspective that we alone can give. That is what I believe and teach. We can all do this, and yes, it takes courage to speak and express our truth every moment, but it makes our work spontaneous and unpredictable. And this is what an audience longs to watch.

“In Julia and Peter’s class I learned the intricate details of working on camera and how to make sure the audience can see directly into the character’s soul.”

~Angela Ashton
