That Cameron Crowe chose Matthew Harrison to be my acting coach was the luckiest break in a long time. My acting in ROADIES is all because of him and and because of his extraordinary process and his magic with script. Matthew’s brilliant. Gave my character heart. Made me get real. AND I noticed that it did really improve my stage performance. My stand up. It kinda woke me up a little bit, got me really connected to my audience, and I felt I was finding some real humanity I never touched before. Matthew is unbelievably good at what he does. He’s like a doctor: he cares, he’s patient, and he’ll fix you!

Matthew is a tal­ented coach… with great instinct and with the nat­ural dis­cre­tion and tim­ing that is so essen­tial work­ing on set. I know I ben­e­fit­ted from his abil­ity and under­stand­ing in all these areas. I should also like to add he’s great fun to hang out with and I look for­ward to work­ing with him again.

When I came to the Actor’s Foundry i was very guarded. I never really trusted myself to just be, to trust in, and do the work because I was wor­ried about judge­ment. When I came here, the judge­ment dis­ap­peared. I started to trust myself, and do the work. It gave me con­fi­dence, which was what I was search­ing for. I got all the ‘glass walls’ out of the way, became much more vul­ner­a­ble. I real­ized, “I’m not going to get judged. Everyone’s here to do the same thing.” That’s when my con­fi­dence started to grow.
