“Three months after the course I auditioned successfully for an agent – the LAW class on how to behave at auditions helped a lot. Four months after that I got the lead in a Sky TV promo – for which the class on acting-on-camera helped immensely. And two months after that I got a stage role at Equity rate playing the dual lead – undoubtedly thanks to the LAW acting classes. At the age of 60 I’m setting out on a new career thanks to LAW!”
