LA-based casting director Kerrie Mailey dialled in via Skype to our drama clubs last week, live from LA! She was accompanied by Phil Perez, an actor and drama teacher who was running the workshop from here.
Girls had the opportunity to play drama games, improvise, look at TV scripts, rehearse them and gain valuable feedback from Kerrie and Phil; an actor's and casting director's perspectives.
Kerrie has worked on various children's programmes; 4 o'clock club, dumping ground, Sadie J and Dickens adaptations among others. She has set up audition and drama academies in both London and Liverpool.
This was a fantastic and rare opportunity for the girls to meet and learn about acting from a TV and film perspective.
