Don't miss this 2-Week Co-Star & Guest-Star TV Intensive by Top TV Casting Director Debi Manwiller! This class is for actors 16+ and it will be held online via Zoom. This will be a live interactive class where you will have a Q&A and you will be able to perform and get feedback from Debi.

You will also be able to send us your headshot, resume, acting reel and anything else you would want Debi to see.
During the course of my 30-year career in casting, I've seen a lot of auditions. A LOT. Consistently, some of the most difficult roles to audition for are the co-stars. From one word to one line to one speech.
There isn't much material to hang onto - sometimes just one word. One beautiful little word. Actors make the mistake of doing too much or too little, try to turn a one-line role into a one-act play, or don't make any choices at all. There are practical tools and tips that can help you land these roles.
This is a class for actors who are ready to take their careers to the next level by developing the skills necessary to navigate the tricky world of Co-Star roles and auditions. You'll learn how to approach these specific roles with confidence and authenticity.

Please prepare a 2-minute scene from TV or film. Choose material that you would realistically be cast as but at the same time will challenge you and be worth working on in a classroom setting.
