9 out of 10 Casting Directors agree that all actors should be able to cold read. You never know what will be tossed at you “in the room.” Strengthening cold reading skills allows the actor to pick up the piece of material and make strong character choices, emotional choices, and get off the page quickly, which allows actors to focus on their partner to create and authentic moment.

I greatly love working as a talent manager, but there’s a special place in my heart for working with actors on their craft, especially the craft of cold reading. Strong cold reading techniques have the potential to make an audition or break one. It’s so thrilling to be able to guide actors and see them bring the page to life. This is why I’ve been doing my cold reading classes for many years now.

From time to time I like to kick the class up a notch and bring in working casting directors to work with students and get their point-of-view. Class size is small which allows more one-on-one time

 Industry Guest Judy Keller, CSA - "Wayne Gasser brings a creativity and an inspiring environment to his class where actors can thrive. I found each and every one of his students to be wonderfully talented. I give credit to Wayne and his teaching skills for that."
