Laura Mac Working Actor

Hi, I’m Laura Mac and I’m a Working Actor.

I’ve known I was going to be an actor since I was in kindergarten. I was involved in every play that I possibly could, whether it was through my school, the town, or the local university, I was there.

When I graduated from high school I went right into one of the most reputable formal acting programs in the country – earning both a bachelor’s degree AND a conservatory diploma. I left college believing in my heart that I was READY. I was trained. My career would happen. And when it didn’t, I just waited. Waited for something to happen. 

I did a few rounds of agency submission without a bite, so I just focused on taking acting classes, picking up work as a server, and shooting new headshots every 6 months. After 2 years of this, still no agent, I decided the city was the problem, so I moved to a different one and got another serving job, found new acting classes, shot more headshots. Finally, I managed to get an agent from a friend referral and I sat on her roster for, no kidding, 1 full year without a single audition. Of course, I assumed that it must have been her fault, not mine, so I got another agent and went another 6 months without any auditions before deciding that again, he must be the problem, not me. Finally, on my third agent, 7 years after leaving theatre school, I woke up and realized that waiting simply didn’t work and I began to develop an approach that did. 

I found mentors and coaches who showed me the way and figured out all the different areas of life that we need to focus on to build a successful actor’s life. It’s so much more than just talent! Proper audition technique. Marketing material. Industry relationships. Goal setting. Market research. Positive mindset and healthy habits. Looking back, I don’t regret a minute of the journey that got me to where I am now, but! I don’t want you to get stuck in the same waiting game. It takes too long. 

all about the method

The Laura Mac Method is designed to teach you everything you need to know to get you away from waiting and get you into the career you really want for yourself. My goal is to give you the ins and outs of the world of commercial, film and tv acting. You’ll gain prep skills, audition technique, set advice, craft development. And at the same time, I’ll teach you how to become the CEO of You.Inc because as an actor you’re the founder and creator of a business with one product, yourself. I’ll give you step by step instructions on how to take who you are as a wonderfully unique person with values and experiences and turn yourself into an irresistible benefit to your acting community. Don’t let the waiting game get you, I’ve seen too many amazing actors give up because they didn’t have the right support. So whether you work with me or one of the other amazing coaches out there, trust me when I say you’re not alone. We can do this together.
