GUEST CLASS WITH GLENN CLOSE
Atlantic Acting School Full-Time Conservatory students are invited to a guest class every Friday during the school year. Guest teachers speak about their experience in the business, answer questions directly from students, and occasionally work with them on scene work. Previous guest teachers have included Atlantic co-founders David Mamet and William H. Macy, actress Kate Winslet, and alumni Peter Facinelli, Eloise Mumford and Elizabeth Olsen.
Last Friday, February 6, 2015, students were treated to a guest class with Academy Award-nominated actress Glenn Close. Below are a few photos from Ahron R. Foster and quotes from the class:
- One great thing about acting is that every job will inform you. It becomes an accumulative experience.
- You have to respect your fellow actors. If there is someone who is a loose cannon, do something about it because there’s work to do.
- When it comes to doing television versus movies versus theater, if it’s good writing… Go for it!
- Most important thing is to just somehow stay true to what you feel is truthful.
- Give yourself time. You should always know more about your character than anyone else.
- I am moved by what actors do. What we do is important. Actors are brave and I love our alien nation.
