The last time we had David Crowley on Act On This, he was the on-set acting coach at Hollyoaks - helping potential regulars crush their screen tests for the show. 12 months later, he still does that, BUT... he's also now directing the show - with his first 5 episodes airing last month.

In this 2 HOUR deep-dive, we delve into David's transition to director, discuss the inner-workings of the Hollyoaks casting department, share next level strategies to help you crush your next casting - and members of Act On This jump on camera for some 1-2-1 coaching too!
