Famous Actors Who Were Rejected By Acting Schools
There’s an understanding that to become successful as an actor you must go to acting school. Well, that is absolutely not true. We have many actors who were rejected over and over again by some of the finest acting schools In London.
George MacKay star of the movie 1917 directed by Sam Mendes and Cary Mulligan was rejected by 3 top acting schools yet has managed to have an incredible career and 2 Oscar nominations. The truth is, real actors can’t be stopped no matter what happens to them. He found a way with a coach, not a school.
And by the way, you can never train with a school, you train with the teachers who are in the school. If the teachers in the schools are not able to bring out the best in you, it will cause you more damage.
Never just think of a school you want to work with but investigate what teachers you’ll be studying with and what techniques you will be learning. If their technique and methods don’t change every few years, it’s not a school that I would recommend. Training changes because what the audience expects from the actors’ changes all the time
There’s a belief that there are only 10 great acting teachers around the world that can help you become a world-class actor. There are many wonderful teachers out there, but everyone knows that you must find the right coach and mentor to take you to your highest level possible. You must keep searching until you have found a teacher that makes you soar!
