On Method Acting


Acting and living, and everything else, for that matter, is compassion.

What Lee and Stella [Adler] and Mira [Rostova] and Herbert [Berghof] were all espousing was compassion, an amplification of humanity, which is all that will save a scene or a play or a relationship or the world.

The world is so inordinately tiny not geographically, but spiritually. We shuffle along, happy to do the least amount of work, the least amount of exploration, perhaps because we feel we don't deserve all the riches that surround us.

Movies and plays and art and music and interaction with other people who sought compassion and understanding saved me. They will save us all. What is at the heart of The Method is compassion, empathy.

Go into your private moments and private spaces and realise all that you've felt and all that has been given to you and taken away. We will never murder; we might never give birth; we were not Napoleon. But within us are similar emotions, drives, feelings that can place us within an adjoining heart of a murderer; of Napoleon. Of anyone.

What the teachers were telling us, what Lee was telling his students, was to empathise with your own history and to merge with the histories of others.

Art means nothing if it does not connect with an audience, even it might be an audience of one. Honesty with our emotions will find a connection with the honesty of someone else with their own feelings. Otherwise, it is performing, which is not to be confused with acting.

Call it Method, call it acting, call it art, it is the painful, glorious compassion that joins us all, shared in one space at one time."

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

The course is going great!

I’m really enjoying studying 'Alice: The Rebel’ monologue and I was fascinated by your journey in this industry (Jasmine is my favourite Disney princess).

What I found very interesting was learning about the archetypes and how every character and person fits into mainly one of them. This has really helped me connect with characters from my own monologues and I will definitely use this in the future. Many thanks,

Daniella Raphael

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I have gone over the course material and can not say thank you enough, this is exactly what we need. The material is fantastic.

Your dos and don’ts have been super helpful already as we have change the way Flynn has been learning his script.


Jennifer Sinclair

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I enjoyed going through it. As I am currently working on an audition piece provided, I used the worksheet to bring me closer to the character and fill in the gaps with my own life experiences and imagination.
It definitely helps to discover motives that are not seen on the surface, the hidden emotion found is what drives the monologue.
Although aware of this method, this was a great re-cap,
Thank you!

Gillian Beth

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

What I found very beneficial about the monologue course was learning your character before lines. Also the acting method were you should be as your character for a day and really imagine how the character will speak walk, e.t.c. As I'm auditioning for Alex I pretended to be a bad boy with no regrets. I really appreciate you taking the time to create this course as I have learnt new things that will help through my acting career.

Thank you.

Justin Enyan.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

The course helped me to really get into character. When performing as Kat, I really felt the emotion.

Hey Sylvia! Thank you so much for putting this course together, it has been so helpful as I was struggling to find the perfect monologue but I have found it thanks to you. I have really enjoyed the little things to get into character such as listen to their favourite song and find an object and create a memory from it. Putting myself in the shoes of someone who has been oppressed has taken me on a emotional rollercoaster of sadness and anger even though I've never experienced what she has. It is so cool to play the role of another character in such a thought provoking way and I will continue to research these atrocities that occurred in Rwanda to get an even better insight into the character and her background to be able to effectively play the role. You are an amazing person and I cannot wait to meet you in October. Kind regards,

Christina

Hey Sylvia

Thank you so much for creating this programme.
I'm still like a virgin in acting and really, really enjoying your creation

Sylvia Love Johnson
Sylvia Love Johnson

As an Actor, Actor's Coach and an Award-winning Film Producer I have a great passion for helping actors achieve their dreams. My acting courses and 1-2-1 coaching sessions are designed to help professional working actors at any stage in their careers to achieve higher levels of mastery as well as career guidance and support.

I was born in Spain, Valencia. I was raised partially in the Canary Islands, Las Palmas and partially in London, England, I am a Spanish-British, from Reading UK. I have worked in theatre, cinema and TV in Spain and in England. My multicultural background has taught me the importance of being an individual, never imitate, try to copy or compare yourself with other talents. There is absolutely no competition in this industry, believe it or not, because no one can compete with your uniqueness. You are your greatest asset.

We have a false belief that one has to be “lucky” to make it as an Actor. I’m currently coaching some of the finest and brightest up and coming to UK Film and TV talent. Their success has nothing to do with luck. It's all about correct guidance and craft mastery. The empowerment that I’m seeing is game-changing. As someone who has been in this industry for 25 years, I’m happy to be taking an active part in helping others advance.

My students go deep into each character/monologue they dive in Method Acting techniques. They come out of the courses/coaching sessions utterly transformed with a level of versatility, concentration and characterisation, capeabilities that are truly powerful. Their confidence, skyrockets so does their ability and their disposition to get exactly the acting work they want.

Over the last 15 years as an Actor's Coach, I have learnt that most actors approach their career path in the wrong way. Usually following the masses and doing what everyone else is doing, thus getting what everyone else is getting: 'Very little'.

In this profession, it is imperative to know your 'why' why are you doing this? You need to learn about your mission, unveil your purpose and go after your innermost desires with a laser focussed attitude that gives you the confidence you need to become unstoppable.

I deeply believe you can achieve whatever you want. If what you want is to become as masterful Method Actor and to take full control of your acting career you are in the right place. Actors need much more support and the tools to build up their confidence and their career. This is why I have created several courses and advanced acting training programs.

Testimonials


Rachel Williams
Drama Teacher and Mum of aspiring Actor and Singer.

Hi there.

I am so pleased to have the opportunity to recommend these amazing courses to you. I recommend them to you as both a Drama teacher and as a Mum of an aspiring young actor.

First of all, these courses are powered by an amazing lady. Sylvia really cares about her message, projects and her students. I have been so impressed by the support and positivity she has shared with both my son and myself.

I first came across the Monologue Mastery courses when my son applied for one of the films Sylvia was producing. Her input has really inspired him. He followed all her guidance and created a selection of monologues so he could show a variety of aspects of his acting ability to create different characters. He has embraced her warm up techniques and is much more confident in the whole audition process. We have many conversations based on the things that Sylvia writes and I genuinely feel that this information has helped him fine tune his film and Theatre goals.

As a Mum I would also like to highlight that the courses inspire life skills that work across all aspects of life, ‘be prepared, likeable and easy to work with’ is true in the classroom, sports field and work place.

I am also a Drama Teacher for children. I see the power of Drama and Theatre to build young people’s confidence and resilience. I have imparted many of the courses amazing ideas to my students. I love some of the exercises that Sylvia suggests. My students loved the session we did on talking gibberish to each other. Often I find in improvisation, it is hard to concentrate on showing an emotion when you are trying to think of the right words to say. The students were able to really show emotion in their actions and faces as they did not have to focus on appropriate words. They also loved our session on laughing which was another idea I implemented from Sylvia. When the students had explored the power of laughter we then talked about the feelings and emotions evoked. They stunned me with some of their responses.

I feel that the knowledge, warmth and experience of Sylvia is evident in all aspects of her work, The positive impact of following her training and brilliantly articulated ideas can empower each and every one of us.



Isaac Williams. Age 12

Hi there. My name is Isaac and I am a young actor and singer. I have been working with Sylvia for the last 6 months. I applied to be part of her latest film and through that I was lucky enough to become part of her Monologue Mastery Acting Course.

The first thing I would like to say is how much I really believe Sylvia cares about her students. Every email we wrote and questions we had were answered straight away. She has really supported me towards my goals and her wise words have helped clarify what my goals are.

As a young actor, I am always excited to go to auditions. Being part of the Monologue Mastery Acting Course has improved my preparation 100%. Sylvia encouraged me to build up a selection of monologues rather than just having one that I used over and over again. This has improved how I feel when I get to an audition. I know that not only have I prepared the requested piece but I can show them my acting skills by quickly switching to another character. I have also used this approach with my singing preparation.




Daniella Raphael

The course is going great!

I’m really enjoying studying The monologue and I was fascinated by your journey in this industry.

What I found very interesting was learning about the archetypes and how every character and person fits into mainly one of them. This has really helped me connect with characters from my own monologues and I will definitely use this in the future.

I really appreciate the Actors Inspirational Journal. I loved the layout of all the pages with the inspirational quotes and pictures, my favourite being: “Without wonder and insight, acting is just a business. With it, it becomes creation.” By Bete Davis. I look forward to experimenting with this journal. Many Thanks.



Justin Enyan

What I found very beneficial about the Male monologue course was learning your character before lines.

As I'm auditioning for Alex I pretended to be a bad boy with no regrets. I really appreciate you taking the time to create this course as I have learnt new things that will help through my acting career. Thank you.





Kathryn Raphael

Sylvia Love Johnson is a force of nature with her passion and her ability to breakdown acting techniques. I have appreciated her commitment and her ability to inspire, challenge and support young talent. My daughter has greatly benefited from the coaching sessions and precious advice. Thanks so much.




Margaret Leitch

I would recommend Sylvia very very highly as an acting career coach. Her coaching and mentoring of my son Ross,13, has been top drawer. Sylvia is so clever and talented and has an immense wealth of knowledge and experience to share. Her gentle, positive and bubbly personality is just perfect to draw a young, occasionally-awkward person like Ross out of himself and help him believe anything is possible.

Sylvia nurtures the relationship with Ross and with myself in order that we can be the best supportive unit that we can be and we both love her to bits.

Student Testimonial..

My personal experience with Sylvia's classes was simply great. I always wanted to approach the world of acting but I never dared to take the first step. One day I read in the press an article about a Hollywood movie that was shot in the Canary Islands, specifically in Tenerife and in the article they mentioned Sylvia and her Academy. When I saw that it was based in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria I did not think about it and I went to register. Only a small group of people in my personal circle knew that I was going to Acting school but my motivation was growing every day and in the end I told everyone. Every day I was looking forward to the next day of class. It was a unique experience that made me confirm a skill that I sometimes thought I had but that I was never able to discover or believe I could have.

Her acting classes are a luxury, from minute zero until the end. From the beginning, the special warm-up session that she performs and instructs in each class is masterful, it helps us be In The Moment from the start of the performance. The physical warm-up not only relaxes the body but also the mind, followed by Voice conditioning exercises that are essential, all these elements together with the improvisation for the preparation of the character makes you reach a perfect mental and physical state, neutral and ready to start the creation process.
I definitely recommend it 100%
