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.

Kathryn has helped me build my skills and confidence in presenting and recording myself on video for corporate and sales facing content. No detail too small or not discussed... in a good way... from lighting, to microphone placement, to clothing, to make-up, to how to mentally prepare before hand, to the content and the delivery. This is the beginning of what I hope to be a long term journey to continuously hone my skills. She is down to earth, real, genuine, kind and funny. Money very well invested.

Loved working with Kathryn this first lesson. She gave me some tools that I can use right away. She is delightful and fun to work with!

Vandi is an excellent teacher. She is patient, very good natured, and fun. I highly recommend Vandi.

I was pretty nervous at first, more uncomfortable than nervous I suppose, but Vandi was quick to put me at ease and as we started working through different exercises and ideas I became more comfortable and got more out of my time with her. She's super nice and has a natural warmth about her that is welcoming and encouraging. .

I was someone who had a great deal of struggle connecting with my emotions and being able to express it in a sensible way. Within few weeks he taught me how to tap into my feelings and express it outwards. Needless to say he is an impressive teacher and if you have the chance, visit him.

"James Walsh has helped me in more ways than can I could even imagine in the past 6 months I have trained with him. His challenges and ideas lit a creative spark in my mind, helping me express myself through playing the role of a character nicely (absolutely loving the accent practice i am being taught in). He has also provided a very therapeutic healing for my mental health, helping me to be more spontaneous and witty, instead of the wooden and mechanical person I once was.

James has a ridiculous amount of connections, resources and ideas at his hands, and gladly offers him to me to help me in my Method Acting. For those looking for a career in Acting, Comedy, or Film, James is definitely your man for opening several doors.

Throughout the months, he has been very supportive and encouraging, oftentimes doing welfare checkups on me throughout the week and showing me new ideas and techniques in film, acting and spontaneity. He demonstrates patience with learning curves, and gives good assignments to work on through the week for the next time you meet up. He also is understanding if you cannot make an appointment.

In terms of the actual classes, they are phenomenal. Many classes, when deliberately practicing, feel more like an actual In-the-moment conversation rather than a mechanical " Do this than that" layout. He gives a lot of good and fair feedback for improvement at the end of the class, and following the advice never failed to be right. Be prepared for time to fly, though, as 45 minutes will feel like 10, especially if you are REALLY in character and going back and forth with him on random topics, which almost make you feel like you have a hidden persona lol.

All in all, James is very experienced and skilled in teaching students of all walks of life, from aspiring actors/actresses to would be filmmakers to people simply looking to learn life skills that are invaluable to life, career, relationships and even mental health! There is something for all in this coach's teachings, provided you are wiling to put in the work. Phenomenal teacher and an all around great person!"
