What’s the most interesting workshop you’ve attended?

The most interesting workshop/class I have attended was with Peter Rasmussen. Peter and I always work productively in class and all training sessions in general with Peter are very effective. I would recommend Peter as an acting coach to all actors regardless of skill level.

I prefer to have a steady balance between film/TV and theatre as they allow me to perform in a variety of different ways.

I love all aspects of acting, especially the fact that I have access to playing a variety of different roles, which all have different motivations and morals.

I started acting around two years ago, through a film/TV acting class in Brisbane City. The first class I ever took will always have a special place in my heart because it was the day that I fell in love with the art of acting and my craft.

What is your strength as an actor?

The biggest strength that I have as an actor is the ability to play a variety of different roles, and the fact that I am confident to approach any role as a performer.
