TESTIMONIALS       and     CLIENT SUCCESSES      also:

RAKE regularNECAR ZADEGAN (A regular on GIRLFRIENDS’ GUIDE TO DIVORCE, RAKE, EMILY OWENS M.D. , recurred on EXTANT, THE FOSTERS, and  “24”): “Caryn very quickly understands scenes and characters and where the scene should go is always supported by her keen eye for specifics. Her audition technique class is singular amidst the rest…She is clear about why auditioning is an art unto itself…Under Caryn’s tutelage I really had a chance to hone the art of specificity within my acting but also entirely within my life as an artist…”


JohnConnally1JOHN P CONNOLLY (former Pres. of AFTRA &  ex CEO Actors Equity who took the Audition Intensive recently): “Essentially, in a safe, supportive setting I learned that while I may miss the Old School that I thrived in, I gotta get back up on a New Horse if I want to ride.  I also profited immensely and immediately from the artistic and technical insight that Caryn brought to our audition pieces.   So much to be joyful about…”


Alysia-Reiner

ALYSIA REINER (Fig on ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK, new Sundance feature EQUITY and SIDEWAYS) : “Caryn’s was the first & BEST audition intensive I ever took. She is a genius both of technique and actor psyche and cutting through habits that hinder us. I use so many of her techniques both in auditions and on set, like today!”                           


victoria summers

VICTORIA SUMMER(booked her 7th feature since April 2012 coaching with Caryn – including TRANSFORMERS 4, SAVING MR BANKS, and now shooting a film lead opposite Chris Klein):  “Caryn has the ability to quickly comprehend a scene and bring it to life. She inspires ideas and actions that would have otherwise gone untapped. I wouldn’t go anywhere else with my audition material”


David Alan Basche

DAVID ALAN BASCHE  (series regular “The Exes”, “Starter Wife”  ,”Lipstick Jungle”, “Three Sisters,” “Oh Grow Up,” films include “United 93”, “War of the Worlds”, “Full Frontal”) :    “Caryn’s class changed my life: I take what she taught me into every audition, and it works over and over again, and that means: so do I !”
