I coach everyone from high-profile professionals to young artists at the beginning of their career. Each session with me is always personally tailored to your progression, your type, taste in material, and preferred learning method in developing your craft.
I've trained formally for many years, holding a Bachelors in Fine Arts (Theatre) from NYU Tisch School of the Arts and a Masters in Fine Arts (Acting) from The American Repertory Theatre at Harvard University.
I'm a proud member of SAG-AFTRA and The Actor's Equity Association, having worked professionally in New York, LA, Miami, and Moscow in award winning Theatre, Television, Film, and Voice Over.
Each client I take onto my roster holds a special place in my life as a coach. I serve not only as a teacher of the craft, but as a mentor you can turn to at any time regarding any facet of your journey as a working actor. I support my clients through auditions, workshops, headshot decisions, agent meetings, and major milestones in their blossoming careers.
Many of my clients begin coaching unsure of their skill and place in the industry, but in only a few sessions, mold into artists with authority, staking their claim in prestigious training programs, arts colleges, and roles in professional theatre, TV, commercials, and film.
My overarching ambition is to open the channels that allow you to flow freely in life and art, encourage you to take meaningful, rewarding risks, and unleash the confident performer inside of you waiting to emerge.

She was my first acting coach and I can not imagine what my life would look like without her guidance.
Samara has a strong passion for what she does and shares that passion, along with her experience and wisdom, through her lessons.
She always finds ways to bring things out of me I didn't even know were possible, all while creating a safe and nurturing environment that allows and fosters growth and progress.
Samara Kelly is the main reason I was accepted into not one, but two intensive training programs in New York City. She encouraged and helped me get on my path to becoming the actor I want to be.
I wholeheartedly recommend taking sessions with Samara
