Fay Beck is the founder and artistic director of the Actors Door Studio. In conjunction with teaching students enrolled in the advanced classes at the studio, she is available for private, one-on-one acting coaching, and mentoring.
As an acting coach she works with trained professionals, performers, working actors and with actors in training.
The basis of her approach is realism in acting. She works with you to help bring out truth and honesty in your performance, whether intended for the screen or stage. Her specialisation in character. Having trained as a psychologist, she applies her unique background to understanding character, and most importantly understanding your character, so that she may be able to work through you to get to the character you are portraying.
Beck’s areas of specialisation are:
audition preparation and mastery
in depth text analysis
She is also available for on set coaching, both in her base home of London as well as internationally.
As a mentor, she works with public figures, actors, artists, writers, screenwriters and business professionals helping them gain the competitive edge they need to advance their careers.
The emphasis of her coaching and mentorship is on excellence in the craft of acting, in deep ‘change-focused’ personal development techniques and on ‘projective career success’.
…(Fay) has a unique and vast understanding of story and character and makes it very accessible, despite its complexity. For anyone working who needs help breaking down a scene, a script, a character or all three, I couldn’t recommend Fay enough. Not only has she been able to help me understand material in an extraordinary way she has also always given me countless ways of bringing it to life. I will be seeking Fays expertise for many, many years and I encourage you to do the same!

Fay taught me not how to ‘act’, but how to feel deeply, let myself be affected, and how to trust the truth. It has changed my world and I’ve completely fallen in love with the craft like it’s the first time again.
ADS has completely opened my eyes to the artistry of what acting really is. I had completely misunderstood it for 27 years! I’m more passionate and in love with acting than I’ve ever been and it’s all thanks to Fay and ADS. I am eternally grateful.
