For so many actors, landing a job in a top Marvel TV show or film is the ultimate dream. Yet so few dare take the action required, to make it happen.

One actress who leant into that fear and pulled it off, is the SUPER-talented Elizabeth Henstridge, now famous for her portrayal of genius biochemist, Jemma Simmons, in 7 seasons of Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D..

In this 2 HOUR mastermind, we dive deep into Elizabeth's move from the UK to LA, watch the screen test that would change her life forever, she explains how she went from not just starring in Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D., but to actually directing it - and members of Act On This jump on camera for some 1-2-1 coaching too!
