Information About Christopher - Hampstead teacher
Acting / Drama
I am an actor with experience in stage, film and tv work. I am passionate about teaching dramatic arts both live and recorded forms. I am of Greek origin and speak the language fluently, this includes the classics.
In addition to the dramatic arts I am keen to travel, experience new cultures, reading and health and fitness.
I believe an actor should have a good balance between physical and mental health and that one does not work to its full potential without the other.
I have over ten years experience in teaching this includes on a one to one and group basis. I have directed plays for community theatre groups which includes primary and secondary schools throughout London. I am at present tutoring prospective students for drama school acceptance level this includes working on classical and modern text. My acting experience includes working with Sam Mendes on SkyFall, Ridley Scott on Exodus Gods and Kings and Zach Snyder on 300: Rise of an **Web Address Removed** credits include: Silent Witness, Benidorm, Rome, Law and Order, By Any Means, Fur TV and The Durrells. Theatre projects include: Julius Caesar, Much Ado About Nothing and A Chorus Of Disapproval and Wladimir Mayakovsky.
I believe in breaking down texts and actions to their simpliest forms and systematically building up, therefore always having an understanding of the actions at hand.
I try to establish a physical and mental connection from the begining and then treat as a building block therefore justifying each action both verbal and physical.
I understand what is expected by assessors and casting directors within the industry and the difference between forcing an action and letting it flow naturally which is the desired result.
