When I first decided to become an actress, for real, for sure, professionally, I started taking classes in New York at HB Studios. I was very lucky to find a great teacher right away – Walt Witcover. He taught me the basics and kept me focused on the truth of acting and the reality. We did acting exercises and we did scenes from famous plays.We worked on scenes from Eugene O’Neill, Tennessee Williams, Arthur Miller, Chekhov, Ibsen and George Bernard Shaw. Walt still teaches in NYC – on his own and HB Studios is still a great place to study in NYC and I recommend it to anyone who tells me they are living in NYC. Walt Witcover and/or HB Studios you can’t go wrong.
