With over 700 episodes of Coronation Street, Emmerdale & Hollyoaks under his belt, Duncan is one of the most successful directors in serial drama. He's also one of the kindest - constantly looking to give actors their first break!

Winner of multiple British Soap Awards - he's worked tirelessly in the industry for over 15 years and is a true advocate for finding and casting new talent.

In this 2 HOUR mastermind, Duncan explains EXACTLY how to get on his radar, discusses tactics to obtain regular casting opportunities in serial drama - and members of Act On This jump on camera for some 1-2-1 coaching too!

  • His experience directing his very first episode of 'Emmerdale'.
  • Auditioning for serial drama and what actors can do to stand out.
  • What Duncan likes to see in a self-tape - and the only thing that REALLY matters.
  • How actors can get on Duncan's radar and when to send him your reel.
  • The scenes you MUST have in your reel, if you want the best chance of serial drama auditions.
  • Why you should NEVER feel like a pest when reaching out to people.
  • Covid - and how it's changed the way serial drama is shot.
  • Why you should embrace your natural accent as an actor.
  • Landing a regular role in serial drama, if you've already had a guest part.
  • Coming back into the industry, after having a family.
  • Landing roles on the Northern soaps, when you live down south.
