Laura Mac & The Associates

laura mac

I discovered my love of acting early, but being from a small town meant I didn’t have access to the world of professional commercial, film and television acting. After high school, I trained at one of the top theatre programs in the country, earning both a BA in English and Drama and a Diploma in Conservatory Acting training. I’ve put countless hours into developing my craft; understanding the history of performance art, the various techniques and styles of acting, honing my understanding of the body, the mind, and how we interact as people in friendships, families, communities, and societies. 

It wasn’t until years after I graduated that I realized didn’t know how to actually get IN the industry. I was talented and formally trained, but no one told me what a professional actors life entailed. It wasn’t until I started reaching out to my community and finding mentorship that I began my journey to understanding all the aspects of a successful acting life; relationship development, audition skills, marketing strategy and so much more.

Since I started coaching in 2017, I’ve learned that the real key to success isn’t great acting talent, strong audition skills or even a solid understanding of the business. Success comes through the small actions you take each week – checking in on your progress, bouncing ideas off your team, critically examining your acting process and committing to learning about your craft. And you can’t do any of that alone. You need to surround yourself with great people who are on the same journey and work together to achieve the results of your dreams.
