Mary Elizabeth Ellis
Actor (Series Regular on LODGE 49, IT’S ALWAYS SUNNY IN PHILADELPHIA)
John Rosenfeld is the rare kind of teacher that actually cares about his students’ success outside of class, listens to their questions with an open heart, and genuinely does his best to help them become the best actors they can be. It’s lovely to have a teacher that still not only auditions, but works. He is aware and sympathetic to the hardships we face as auditioning actors and applies his working knowledge to his coaching and class work. That is priceless… John pushed me to strip the b.s. that often comes with years of training and learn to trust that I am truly interesting and exciting enough to leave it at that. He has also helped me change my mindset and technicalities from the stage to the camera when I was just beginning. Actors from every background– from those with graduate degrees to the novice will be able to learn something new from John because of his personal teaching style, his enthusiasm, and his unique technique.
