About this pro

I help actors get roles by helping them to find the confidence that they are able to approach a character knowing that with the proper preparation they will be a success!

I enjoy helping an actor create a new character. It is refreshing to start to build a character and discuss different approaches with the actor as they experiment and grow in their skills of adding a new character to their skills.

    For several years I have worked with Arlette from Act Now. She has depth of knowledge of all the classic acting methods and approaches coupled with the experience as a Director and actor herself. This unique blend, allows her to work with you to hone-in on the specific unique approach, that works best for your unique journey of the craft. I surely trust and depend upon her insight and eye as I continue my journey of the craft.

    I am grateful to have had the privilege of working with an amazing teacher. She helped me understand the process of developing a character. With Arlette's training I've learned to appreciated the importance of being honest and believable as an actor / performer. She has pushed me continuously out of my comfort zone(s). This effective nudging helped me to keep an open mind, and to know that there are no such things as mistakes as it pertains to performing. Working with Arlette you'll enjoy her nurturing style. If you need someone who will push you and provide room for growth Look No Further.

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I am an award-winning Writer, Director, Producer for film and theater. I have worked with actors in many of my film productions and I love helping acting students find characters through improvisation! I also teach the importance of becoming a character. It is a wonderful experience to help new and seasoned actors take the journey of every character.
