It’s actually ok to be silly!
Our students are all individuals and all have joined our journey from different perspectives which is why we love to check in and find out more! This week we're chatting to Advanced student Nina Dylan.
How did you get into Acting?
The truth of the matter is it was by fluke, I was working in the west end and a film crew were filming a Superdrug advert and looking for background artists. I popped my head out and that was that.
What do you love most about performing?
The freedom to be an authentic truthful version of myself.
What led you to train at The Actors Temple?
I wanted to explore Meisner because there was something about the way you train, to find the truth, following that quick impulse and what it means. I had heard so many positive things about the place and I wanted to give it a go.
What was the biggest lesson you learnt during your Core training?
For me it was that it’s actually ok to be silly. Not to put so much pressure on myself and to be willing to fall over and get egg on my face. I mean - I rapped for goodness sake, I just did it and it was hilarious.
If you could play any character- who would it be and why?
Everyone usually goes to the classic females but for me I’d love to play a female version of Luther.
If you weren’t an actor, what alternate career would you have?
I used to do window dressing and I loved working with fashion - I think it would still be in the creative field.
What motivates you, when things get tough?
That things don’t last forever
If you could write a letter to your younger self, what would you say?
Don’t be scared and take the opportunities when they come.
What advice would you give to someone thinking about training with The Actors’ Temple?
Try it, you’ve got nothing to lose.
Whats next for Nina?
Finish the advanced and see what happens…
