    Advice from an Acting Mentor & Coach - with Charlotte Thornton - EP#23

    Advice from an Acting Mentor & Coach - with Charlotte Thornton - EP#23

    This week we welcome acting mentor and career coach Charlotte Thornton to the podcast.

    Charlotte trained at Mountview and after graduating without an agent, she worked primarily in Fringe Theatre before an encounter with a career coach specifically in LA changed the trajectory of her career.

    After going on to appear on the West End and at The National Theatre, Charlotte has gone on to coach actors at every stage of their career. Her wisdom and advice was so good to hear and I hope you enjoy this conversation as much as I did.

    A Decade of Friendship - with Jack Sunderland - EP#17

    A Decade of Friendship - with Jack Sunderland - EP#17

    This week I welcome one of my best friends to the podcast. Jack Sunderland is an actor, teacher and someone who possibly saved my life. During our conversation we discuss drama school, the decision to step away from acting, why kindness is so important and at such a shortage in our industry, boldness in creativity, how losing his Dad has had a lasting impact on him, shame, sobriety and most of all we look back on our almost decade long friendship. He is a beautiful human and this conversation shows a little snippet into the kindness, humility and humanity that Jack possesses. I hope you enjoying listening to it as much as I enjoyed speaking to him.
