He is best known World-wide for his role on “The Young and the Restless” where he received 3 Emmy nominations and won his first Emmy for Outstanding Younger Actor in a Drama Series for his role as Billy Abbott. He has the experience and training to coach actors who are either beginning their journey with acting or are well experienced actors who are looking to bring more color and light to their work. so they will stand out in front of the casting director & make their tape unique from the rest. Acting is my passion, and I love to share that passion with others so they may reach their dreams of becoming a working actor.

Will was extremely helpful. He went above and beyond helping me with my routine and suggestions for feeling comfortable and getting ready. I would definitely use him again if needed.
Joachim
Will has a great way of guiding the team to not only work together but dial in what's working and phase out what's not. He's patient, encouraging, and most importantly honest. It's clear he loves the form and working with others to find what works for their team.
Laura
Will and I performed and taught together for years in NYC. He is the best! He really focuses on spontaneity and supporting his partner. When you work with him, you won’t have to worry about being funny or clever. He will help you learn to improvise in your own unique way.

I'm a working commercial actor that you see on TV. I am also an acting coach, manager, and former agent. I have groomed talented actors to work in Hollywood since 1998. And many have become top commercial actors, TV and film stars. I grew up in Tyler, Texas and I have returned to work with actors all across my home state of Texas. I specialize in starting actors out on their careers, teaching both a winning technique that will get you working, and a complete understanding of what it takes from a business point of view. All acting techniques have evolved, including what we do commercially. How real can you be? Do you know how create humor and believability? Do you know the role of the casting director, ad agency, AD, and the director? I often hear from casting directors, "It's great to see when an actor gets it right." During the height of my acting studio in Los Angeles, you couldn't turn on the television without seeing one of my actors from studio in commercials and TV series. For ...

About Addison

Since 1998, I've helped my clients break through the walls of Hollywood. I asked how does one live and survive in Hollywood as an actor and entertainer? That question took me on a journey that would change my life and the lives of people who have taken my advice. After investing in a $300.00 vide

Addison is an amazing teacher and actor, He is always true to himself and is adept at seeing potential in others he works with. I so admire him and his total work ethic. He's a perfect addition to whatever he chooses.
David Vega
The real deal. I have been acting all my life. Additionally, I have worked in Europe, the UK and the USA. When I moved to LA, I had the chance to study with Addison and it was absolutely worth it. Not only does he know how the industry really works but also, he has a deep understanding of character and script analysis. Addison is going to help you to discover the different layers that each role has. When it comes to auditions, working with Addison makes a difference. Believe me, you will be " ready to be ready" and focused. Finally, there is no doubt in my mind that Addison will help you to become the best actor you could possibly be and most importantly: to book acting jobs.

When it comes to Improv Acting, students will play tons of games to help develop the ability to improv quickly. We spend the majority of the time working on ways that students will be put into a scenario: stunt doubles, super hero's, occupations, family dynamics, animals, food, famous media and literature characters. We will focus on the extremes of these characters in the scenes. Students love to improv, as a way to develop confidence, stage presence, which will help with any type of acting. Improv is one of my many favorites with acting students. Always help students feel successful. Consider acting lessons and specifically improv acting as an option.

Great learning process thanks!
Britney Keck
Mr. Andrew is kind, funny and engaging.

My son (6) always has the best time at lesson and wants to know immediately when he gets to go back.

Our son has a lot on his plate and watching him have something that's just his that he is happy to do and enjoys this has been such a bright spot for our whole family.

- and Mr. Andrew is in direct correlation to that.

I recommend Mr. Andrew to anyone who is looking for a teacher who is kind, funny, engaging, and wants to help you succeed and gives you opportunities to use the skills you have learned.

Fun again,....you make it a lot of fun thank you
