Coming to Perth this July is Elizabeth Kemp, acting coach to Bradley Cooper – star of The Hangover trilogy, The A-Team and Silver Linings Playbook. Perth’s The Actors’ Hub and Melbourne’s 16th Street Actors Studio are bringing Kemp to WA for a masterclass known as the Character Dream Workshop.
When Bradley Cooper appeared on Inside The Actors' Studio in 2012, he offered thanks to Kemp as one of his teachers. “I was never able to relax in my life before,” he said. “The most sacred experience I ever had was in [her class]. No question about it – she’s an incredible teacher.” (The interview can be viewed here)
Kemp is associate artistic director of the drama department at The Actors Studio, a New York-based organisation for professional actors, theatre directors and playwrights best known for its work refining and teaching method acting. Founded in 1947, it is currently run by Al Pacino, Ellen Burstyn and Harvey Keitel – an actor Kemp still coaches. She was one of the youngest members to be admitted to The Actors Studio and has been a life member since 1975.
Kemp was in the original cast of the hit musical The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas and had roles in TV’s LA Law and thirty something before finding her calling as a drama coach.
