“John is easily the most effective acting teacher I have ever worked with. I experienced dramatic results from his instruction; and it is interesting to note that within a week of completing his course, I booked my first role in a Television series (“24”). I use John’s technique every time I work and find his ideas to be a continuing source of inspiration.” - SARAH CLARKE – (“24”, "Twilight", "Bosch")
"The acting world can be a very competitive and cut-throat profession. John taught me to remain centred and to maintain a healthy balance between ambition and humility. To wish others well rather than to compete against them. During my training with John my career improved tenfold, including; landing leading roles at The Royal National Theatre, being named ‘Best Newcomer’ at the Independent Theatre Awards, a whole host of TV and Film roles and during the final year of training with John, being booked to work on Martin Scorsese’s ‘Gangs of New York’. John’s teaching represents the cutting edge of Actor Training in the world today.” – EDDIE MARSAN; Filmografie ‘Vera Drake‘, ‘Happy-Go-Lucky‘ (Winner: Best Supporting Actor BIFA), Gangs of New York, Gangster No 1, 21 Grams, Mission Impossible III, Ray Donovan.
