WHAT THEY SAY
What I find so unique about JRS and in particular John, is his ability to meet you exactly where you’re at on your path, and make you better.
Actor (Series Reg on HOUSE OF CARDS)
I've taken a lot of acting classes. Some have been good, others not so good. But no class has helped me more in my growth as an actor...
Series Reg on FRESH OFF THE BOAT, Lead in THE INTERVIEW
In JRS classes I found a refuge from the initial loneliness and a creative space where I was free to make mistakes and be unbridledly creative.
Series Regular on FEAR THE WALKING DEAD
I found John and his studio at the lowest point in my career. I was going nowhere fast, career-wise, and my own self worth had been obliterated by the industry.
Actor (Series Regular on THE 100, Emmy-nominated Role on GENERAL HOSPITAL)
John is brilliant in a lot of ways. He nurtures actors both in their craft and in all that goes into pursuing their craft, and he does it without the slightest bit of condescension or intimidation you find with a lot of acting coaches. But what I’ve found to be truly unique about John is his ability to analyze who you are as a person and seamlessly integrate that with who you are as an actor. And that doesn’t mean he simply encourages you to play yourself. It means he forces you to use who you are to create nuanced, unique qualities in the characters you do play. The results and impact on my career have been immeasurable.
Actor (Recurring on YELLOWJACKETS, ROSWELL NEW MEXICO, THE ORIGINALS, Lead in GOOSEBUMPS)
John has made the world of self-taping so much more approachable! He creates a safe space to help you discover, play and connect to what’s on the page. He’s compassionate and meets you wherever you are at emotionally and mentally. I leave every session feeling confident about what we taped. Working with John is a joy!
Actor (Series Reg on GINNY & GEORGIA, BATWOMAN, DOLLFACE, THE PASSAGE)
John simply knows what he’s doing! He has a special ability to nurture his actors into to self-sufficient professionals. He knows what the writers’ want, but he also gets his actors to bring their special “thing” to their work. I recommend him to everyone– from the seasoned working actor to the novice. He really is the best.
VP OF ABC CASTING (HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER, WRIGHT VS. WRONG, THE CLEANER, HAWTHORNE)
John cultivates a truly encouraging environment for his students; one where I’ve felt safe to take risks, make mistakes, and find my voice as an artist. I’m so grateful for the community I’ve found in JRS. Class with John has completely transformed how I approach auditioning by helping me identify and strengthen tools I didn’t know I possessed. I can’t recommend John Rosenfeld Studios enough.
