About this pro

I have a very strong passion for acting, training, and preparing students for stage and on-camera performances.

I have been acting for more than 50 years and teaching more than 30 years both in Europe and in the USA. This is proof of my absolute passion for this enchanting profession. 

I have a Masters Degree in Arts and Drama from the National Academy of Theater and Film from Sofia, Bulgaria (EU).

My very honest and practical approach helps students to learn and develop the necessary skills for their dream profession.

Proud to say my students can be seen performing on TV, local theaters and Broadway. I am one of the first coaches to work also via Skype since I have students in Europe, the West Coast, and even Asia.

I am a member of SAG-AFTRA, Equity, and the European Actors Association.

I love working with all ages, but I especially enjoy developing young adults and kids! The magic of theater is why I have worked so long in this profession, never giving up, despite any hardships.

Inspiring and guiding is what I enjoy most.

My biggest joy in life is to see my students succeed. Several students of mine are starring in Broadway, movies and TV series.

    I have been working with Lilia Slavova for the last three years, and she is one of the best Acting teachers I’ve ever worked with. I am blessed to have her in my life not only as my Acting coach and Acting teacher who helped me throughout my education at New York Film Academy but also as a friend, which I personally think it’s very important to be able to connect with your students in a way to understand them and know their needs and desires. Her acting approach opened my mine helping me to see the acting world in a different way as well as developing my acting skills. She helps you to believe in yourself, to have the necessary confidence and have a unique acting style. Lilia Slavova is a very professional, passionate, honest and direct person. In our lessons she did not only work on my materials, but she also worked on my accent. She always knows what to do and how to approach her students in a way to get the best from them and show them what they are capable of. I highly recommend Lilia Slavova as an instructor. Lilia Slavova, thank you!

    I have been working with Lilia for almost two months now, and it has been an incredibly positive experience. I reached out to Lilia because I would like to become a better and more effective communicator. My job requires that I give presentations to individuals and groups, and I am extremely nervous about speaking in public. Lilia has been an incredible teacher and mentor. Her lessons are engaging and informative, and I am learning so much - not just about persuasive communication, but also about how to understand my audience, adapt my message accordingly and prepare for meetings and events. I just signed up for another series of lessons with Lilia, and would. highly recommend her to anyone looking to improve their acting and/or communication skills.

    I have been coached by Miss Lilia for the last 23 years and it has been the best professional decision I have ever made. She can really make a difference in a performance and can take you from zero to full performance in record time. She can also direct you so well that you will have a few options for your material that you would have never imagined. She makes it look easy and seamless. We started working together before I became a professional actor and it has made a huge difference. As a coach she is direct, efficient, effective and a total pro. In 1 hour you will see your material transformed...in a good way. She is also a VERY talented actor, which makes her so solid...and a real inspiration. I suggest for than one session if you have never worked with her. Acting its like a muscle...it needs to be exercised!

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

First, meet with the teacher, be part of an interview where you both participate in a process to figure his/her method or style of teaching. The teacher should asses your skills and talent and give you a very honest evaluation. 


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Get some information about the education of the teacher.

Ask about the methods that the teacher believe in and practice.

There is no such thing as a stupid question.
