Rose was a shy kid who was put into speech and drama classes at an early age to help with her lisp and her confidence. She found comfort and community in strengthening her performance skills and soon she was out of her shell and acting at every opportunity. Rose’s talents extend across acting for screen and stage, writing, directing, producing and coaching. She has a handy Sociology degree under her belt, is currently on the board at Bitten By Productions and also hosts the interview-based podcast for actors, Get Your Act Together!

 

After chats with a number of fellow actors and drawing on her own experience, Rose recognised that a kind of effective, flexible and modern training actors desire was simply not on offer. Not content to wait around, Rose decided to do it herself, charming her actor mates into attending the prototype SceneWorkout sessions out of her spare room before expanding to the beautiful Collingwood space.

 

Whether it’s facilitating sessions, coaching private self tests, interviewing industry pros, or having an iced latte and a chat (she never drinks hot coffee) Rose naturally operates with respect, kindness and compassion, and loves to celebrate others!
