RAKE regularNECAR ZADEGAN  (now on HBO’s HERE AND NOW, regular on GIRLFRIENDS’ GUIDE TO DIVORCE,  EMILY OWENS M.D. , EXTANT,  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…”


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!”
