On Actor Career Development
"Richards experience and knowledge of the industry is extensive and mean he is able to give a useful insight and actionable advice. If you’re feeling a little stuck I would highly recommend getting in touch."
"STAC has provided me with stellar guidance, both with career mentorship and acting coaching. They have a very no-nonsense approach and are yet utterly empathetic, and always provide a completely fresh perspective. A lot of the time in this industry we are made to feel as if we need to change this and that, or that we don’t quite fit into the right box, but with STAC it’s refreshing to learn to embrace and work with what you’ve got. Go to them if you’re in any way stuck or lost! Thank you to the team at STAC for your endless support and wisdom!"
On Drama School Auditions
“Richard worked with me on my audition pieces for drama school and National Youth Theatre and I was amazed by how brilliantly he was able to break them down and help me access the characters. We worked on the rhythm of Shakespeare, which until I worked with Richard I had struggled with, and the techniques he gave me I still use today. He even helped me choose speeches. Thanks to the sessions with Richard I managed to secure a place at a top drama school and also gained entry to the National Youth Theatre and am now working professionally. His sessions are brilliant, fun, eye opening and really do get the best out of you.”
