@The Descendants screening benifit for All It Takes.

…This lady has taught me how to act. And by that, I mean she has enlightened me on how to use myself as the key to my acting. Novel and artistic, Laura spreads her philosophy of “Quit Acting” to all she encounters, for the secret in being a successful actor is to NOT act. A questionable philosophy, yes, but Laura makes it work. This lady is a miracle worker, for just being with her for one 3 hour day, I learned how to cry on cue… and I’ve never not been able to since.  Now the best part.: Laura listens, if you are having trouble, she suggests her interpretation of the character, then asks you what you think. If you disagree, then she alters her opinion to form yours and approaches it from a different point of view.  She is an expert at analyzing and tearing apart the underlying meanings and lessons the character and the script have to teach. Laura Lasky is truly one of a kind brilliant, personable, loving, playful, straight-forward, spontaneous lady who took me to places I never thought I could reach.  Shailene Woodley IMDB

Jenette McCurdy

Laura has given Jennette a solid foundation that has enabled her to master her auditions, including the most challenging ones, with simply her script and the truth and honesty of the role. Thanks to Laura’s teachings, Jennette has learned how to quit acting, because acting isn’t really acting at all, but rather finding within your soul a place where the part you are performing is real.

When I first started acting, I was terrified. I knew I wanted to be an actor, but I was shy in front of the camera, worried of what others thought of me, and wanted to get acting “Right”.  After having taken lessons from Laura and private coaching, my fear and hesitation have been replaced by confidence and determination.

Years of being told I couldn’t do stuff because of my learning disabilities really beat up my self-esteem. I did hypnosis and it was so easy. I brought my reading up to grade level in less than a year. I also told her I could see things other people didn’t, and everyone said I was making it up. She explained how most kids like me can see or hear what most others can’t. And she’s given me tools to understand it. Tavi (model)

Andre Roman

Laura reminded me how much fun acting can really be. When I first started classes I had so much fear and anxiety before my auditions. She showed me how to use those feelings to my benefit. How to channel that energy into my characters. But most importantly how to have fun during the process. I’m now in touch with a new level; not only with my skills as an actor but across the board.

Laura, I just wanted to thank you for everything. Thank you for pushing me to be the best that i can be. And just always believing that I can do it when i couldn’t believe in myself.  You just understand me … almost more than i understand myself. I know that you have helped me to really improve my acting, but also my confidence in myself.

Being a child actor and then transitioning to older roles, Laura never tried to teach me a method, she helped me find MY method. And now I’m becoming a film maker. Laura’s helped me find my voice as a film maker and I feel I am at an advantage in school, and really understand how to direct actors because of what I have already learned.Tessa Germaine (director/actor) IMDB  “Outcast” AAHS Film Festival  2016

People have been calling to praise my performance. Really.  When I messed up, I stood there until I figured out my next course of action. People thought I was just overcome w/ emotions as part of the performance. As you said they will. So to quote Van Gogh … Thank you. Steven Friedman (writer/performer)  Phallaris’ Bull “Solving the Riddle of The Great Big World” NY/LA 2016/2017

I know it has been such a long time but I hope you remember me! I had taken your “crying on cue” lesson, and wasn’t able to do it properly at the time; however, when I came back to Istanbul, i have been in many productions –which required me to cry on cue, and did a great job each and every time. Just wanted to thank you for your help!
Cheers from Istanbul! Behr

Ben Sharples

In 2 months Laura’s helped me find and speak in my natural voice, and bring more of myself to my work. I’ve learned how to cry on cue as well as how to use any pre-audition nerves to connect more fully with the character.Perhaps the thing I’m happiest about is that I go with my gut and trust myself more, and because of that, I’m already working more too. Ben Sharples  (writer/director/actor)  IMDB 

 

Danielle Kotch

She was able to book stronger acting roles while she was with you but also apply it to her dance. She was more dramatic, more focused, and more determined than I have ever seen her. {Her sister} kept saying, “What would Laura tell you right now.”

What will you achieve once you’ve Quit Acting! 

More shout outs about Quit Acting!

 I stoppped doing all the back story stuff or figuring out objectives and motivations and have went  from barely getting callbacks to testing for 2 projects!

Tanner (actor)

Laura is an amazing coach, and her techniques not only help the child actor, but also the parentas well. Both my son and I learned so much form her classes about keeping the scene honest, and not pushing, She was able to pinpoint very quickly what was holding him back durring his auditions, and now my son is learning how to trust himself … and we both are learning to trust his instincts which is also allowing me MOM to help him more affectively. I’ve seen a huge difference in his audititioning in just a short period of time of training with her. She is the real deal, and she sincerely cares about the child’s success! I wish we had met her earlier!

Kerrie ( JAKE ELLIOT IMDB) 

Laura Lasky is so wonderful with young actors. While many acting coaches who expect children to learn adult techniques or expect them to conform to a specific style, she is really about giving the technical tools for acting while promoting their individuality that allows each student to shine. I know when Laura works with one of my clients they always audition REAL.

Judy Savage (Founder The Savage Agency)

Wait, it can’t be that easy. Isn’t that cheating?
Brian (actor)

Laura is unlike any acting coach I’ve been with, I mean that in the best way possible.  She’s showed and taught me more things that have been so beneficial for me not only as an actor, but as a person too; which, in turn, has bled into my acting.  Her approach was one I was unfamiliar with but grew to love very quickly.  She simply finds what works best for you and works to make it finer, simpler, and obviously better.  Bluntly, what I had found after a few lessons was that maybe she new more about me as an actor than I did.  You will simply, like me, find yourself much more sure and confident about yourself as actor/actress and will trust your ability more than ever.    

Alec (actor)



Laura was able to provide my son with the tools he needed to dig deeper within himself to find inner hidden abilities which put him back on the path toward success. She took a sincere interest in his well- being and was generous to a fault with her time, support and enthusiasm. His confidence was reenergized and his attitude became much more positive. He knew that someone other than his Mom was truly there for him and ready to guide him every step of the way.

Melanie (parent)

I learned more in one class than in the six years I’ve been training.

Nia (actress) 

Thanks for a wonderful [hypnosis] session yesterday. I’m still processing everything…it was definitely helpful…helped me confront a lot.

M. (actress)

You certainly have helped in my client’s success and should be given due to credit!

Bill Pearlman (manager)

Thank you soooo much for hypnotizing Celia yesterday.  She had a CD workshop last night and practically danced out of the building. She said she had NO fear at all!

Mary (parent)

{My daughter} had been acting for about six months. Before we started working with Laura we had the occasional callback and no bookings. We started with Laura about a month ago and Kaleigh has had callbacks on EVERY commercial audition she has gone to and has booked two!

She also booked her first feature film and her first episodic after being coached by Laura. Wow, what a month.

Jack (parent)

Thanks Laura! I wanted to contact you and let you know that Lexi has had an amazing streak since she saw you last, she did not get that particular booking, but she got the next 5 and a callback. And now she begins Mulan. We are so grateful for all the work you put in with Lexi We all believe that she gained so much confidence with you!

Trisha (parent)

Working with Laura has been an amazing experience for my daughter. Laura knows how to individualize her teachings to the student. She doesn’t use a “one size fits all’ approach like other coaches we had tried. This has been amazingly beneficial for my daughter and her bookings have increased dramatically since working with her. She went from booking 3 jobs in 12 months to 10 jobs in 9 months.

She has a great way with actors helping them understand character development, versus just learning the lines and basic actions. It’s nice to know my child is not just a number seen for 5 minutes once a week.

Kirsten (parent)

Laura exhibits an uncanny ability to relate to children on their age level, She has created a fun and enthusiastic teaching environment that has helped my 6yr old to become one with her characters! Since we began seeing Laura, my daughter’s callback and booking have increased two fold!

Dana Smiith (mother of MACKENZIE SMITH IMDB )

One (hypnosis) session with Laura is like 100 with another therapist.
