"Matthew Harrison came highly recommended as an acting coach, and now I see why. His work on Roadies was unbelievably good. He clearly knows his stuff. Because of Matthew’s work, our lead actor’s performance was powerful and nuanced, with dialogue full of dynamics, and with a deep emotional undertone. He instilled an amazing learning curve in the actor. We were grateful to have Matthew on set. I am a big fan…and I look forward to working with him again!"
