Rachel Shenton is a shining example of an actress who has taken full control of her career and literally written her own destiny.
After leaving Hollyoaks in 2014, she found herself unable to land auditions and struggled to get casting directors and execs to take her seriously.
Not one to take 'no' for an answer, she left the UK to pursue work in the US. When things again got quiet, she decided to write her first short film, The Silent Child.
That film went on to win her an Oscar - and the rest it history.
In this 2 HOUR mastermind, we look at Rachel's journey so far, learn exactly what happens when you bag an Academy Award, dive deep into creating your own content - and members of Act On This jump on camera for some 1-2-1 coaching too!
