On-Set Coaching for Professional Actors

On-Set Coaching for Professional Actors


For the professional actor seeking close coaching on set, anywhere in the world. Get help with the trickiest scenes, the most demanding moments and the tough requirements of your job.

One of our Acting Coaches will accompany you on set, working with you to prepare powerful and subtle performances that stand out in people's memory.

Who is this type of coaching for?

Professional actors who are working on set in a paid role and have directorial approval to seek assistance from an acting coach for some part of the filming.

How does it work?

Through an initial telephone discussion, we can diagnose what is required by the actor and a time period allotted.  All coaching is tailored entirely to the individual’s needs and the situation in which they are filming.

How Does On-Set Secured Role Coaching Work?

Each coaching session is different, depending upon the requirements of the individual actor. Your acting coach may assist with;

  • A difficult script

  • A highly emotive scene

  • If the requirements of the scene are out-with the actor’s comfort zone

  • The actor is on their first job

  • The actor is transferring from another profession to acting (model, presenter, musician, sports personality etc.)

  • The actor is moving from a theatre background to a film or television role

  • The actor wants the reassurance of someone to support them during the filming process

On-Set secured role coaching is £700 per day away from the studio, regardless of whether coaching is required for that day or not.

Travel and accommodation must be arranged for the acting coach in advance. Payment for coaching services must also be made in advance, although per diems can be issued on a daily basis. 

It is essential that directorial approval is sought and given before the details of the on-set coaching is finalised. This is to avoid conflict between the many members of the creative team on set.

On Set Coaching 


No actor working in film wants to admit that they need help. But if you do, and you're willing to swallow your pride, I suggest ACS. When I work on set, I want them there, or I want them on speed dial, and the support and practical advice they give me, never fails.
