WFTV is delighted to have Miranda Harcourt, a celebrated acting coach, leading a session for actors (and directors) about creating an inspirational rehearsal environment for screen and applying some fast, effective ways to create character and relationships.

Using images and clips Miranda will draw on her wealth of knowledge to provide you with top tips that you can implement in creating rehearsals that really work.

Miranda will explain her successful and reliable techniques to create relationships and chemistry between actors, referring to neuroscience and psychology, as well as traditional acting methodology.
