‘Nick Reed’s vast experience in the industry, from acting to writing and directing to producing, is the perfect recipe for a coach. You leave a session with him having discovered a much deeper, complex meaning to the character and scene, finding small, nuanced beats you may not have discovered yourself. He can break down a scene with ease and will get the performance the scene requires from you. Not only is he wonderful coach, he also puts together a slick, professional self tape or showreel which will leave a casting director wanting you in the room. And to top it all off – you have a damn good laugh!!’
SAM CLEMMETT (Albus Potter, Harry Potter And The Cursed Child)

‘Every time I work with Nick I discover more angles to the piece: more emotional complexity, more ways of approaching the theme, exploring motivation and character, more understanding of the arc of the overall piece and my characters role within that, and more daring in interpreting the material generally. When I leave a session I always feel more confident, that I’ve learnt something I wouldn’t have discovered on my own, and that I’ve had fun at the same time.’
ANNABELLE APSION (Call The Midwife, Shameless, Goodnight Mr Tom)

‘Few people have such an acute instinct for drawing out comic ability in an actor, whilst still keeping the truth/realism of the situation.’
JOANNA QUESNEL (Five Days, True Dare Kiss, Criminal Justice, Eastenders)

‘Nick is a fab fella. Especially me being a newbie, he really offered me a wealth of experience and confidence with my acting. I would highly recommend to anyone who wishes to find a fabulous acting coach.’

JODIE PRENGER (I’d Do Anything Winner, Nancy in Oliver)

‘Shooting with Nick is a great learning experience, and he works hard to nurture people’s talent and help them grow. He really goes above and beyond in helping you create something you can be proud of’
JESS DOHERTY (Eye In The Sky, Burton and Taylor)

‘Nick Reed has been an inspirational mentor to me. He injected a fearlessness and confidence into my work and helped me discover the sort of actress I wanted to be. ‘

‘Nick is charming, perceptive and clever.’


‘As a stand up comedian I had a raft of varied performing skills, most of them completely useless for a role onstage in the West End. Nick Reed showed me a whole new way of approaching stage performance with his own wit, grace and intelligence. And it seemed to work!’
PHILL JUPITUS (Never Mind The Buzzcocks, Hairspray and star of Lifecoach – written and directed by Nick Reed)

‘I absolutely loved the workshop. I’ve done a number of screen acting workshops but found this the most beneficial. The first time someone has bothered to address the difference between TV and film acting and look at the necessity for different styles.’
AOIBHEANN MCCAUL (Caoimhe Dillon in Fair City RTE)

‘Nick has an uncanny ability to get the very best out of every actor he works with. Rarely have I spent a more laid back, enjoyable and productive period working on a project as I did with Nick.’
