Walk away feeling good & confident.
Outside of the pursuit of my own acting career in LA, I find great joy in providing private audition coaching and collaborative script analysis to experienced and self-driven actors who are about the work, and are interested in getting down to the truth of telling each and every story.
As a working actress in LA’s competitive market, I understand the level of interest and commitment in one’s craft and preparation that you have to have to feel good and confident about your auditions. And as a previous casting assistant and casting director, you can learn more about that part of my story over here, I have the fortune of understanding what they are looking for and needing on the other side to help actors continue to book the room and roles.
What you can expect from an Audition Coaching
It has been an honor and such joy to be a part of actors’ journeys, helping to create wins in a variety of ways, from:
- Booking the room
- Getting a callback and prepping for a zoom meeting
- A callback in which the casting director wants actors to read for different and bigger roles because they liked what they saw in the original audition
- Getting pinned
- Getting an Avail
- Getting booked on Lifetime for a movie of the week
- Prepping sides for set to be the lead role in a film
- Prepping sides for set of a popular Netflix Show and one I’m a fan of!
- Prepping sides for an actor’s first Series Regular role for the table read and first week on set
My goal is to be your eagle eye, providing you with clear notes, spot-on direction and honest feedback. Together we will create an elevated and nuanced character and scene that is authentic to you.
“I came to Talia after I booked my first lead in a pilot. I was feeling the pressure and very uncertain about the choices I wanted to make. Over the course of a few private sessions, Talia worked through my scenes with me line by line and introduced me to new methods of emotional preparation I never would have thought to try to tap into my character.
By the time I got to set, I felt totally confident in my choices and who my character was, and everything else fell into place. The director told me I did exactly what he was looking for with the character through my performance, and I felt a million times more confident on set thanks to Talia. If you are looking for someone to give you honest critiques and practical methods to improve your performance– all with encouraging words and kindness – you won’t find anyone better than Talia.”
