About The Actor’s Roadmap
Based on the work of Sandford Meisner and Lee Strasberg among others, Lucas helps students to find their way of acting through moments of truth, reconnecting with their emotions, taking the emphasis away from self and focusing on partners on stage. He also teaches how to build characters, from identifying their primal need, to the way they walk. Being an actor is being a creator, giving script pages a soul, a body and emotions. Being an actor is making smart choices. Being an actor is believing in the unbelievable and make the audience believe with you. But, before all, being an actor is playing, having fun, and reconnecting with the inner child that you might have forgotten.
