If you've been around Act On This a while, you'll know that Downton Abbey and Ackley Bridge actor, Rob James-Collier, is a great friend of the site.

Fresh off the set of brand new Netflix drama, Fate: The Winx Saga, I asked Rob back for a LIVE broadcast like no other.

In this 3 HOUR chat, we looked at the key components that have made Rob so successful, got members of Act On This on camera for some 1-2-1 career coaching, and blew everyone's mind with #RobsBigQuiz!

During the broadcast, we discuss:

  • Rob's most recent work on 'Fate: The Winx Saga' and 'Ackley Bridge'.
  • Why drama school isn't essential, BUT... training somewhere is.
  • The importance of focus, and setting goals in your acting career.
  • When it's okay to say 'no' to acting work.
  • Investing in your acting career, rather than external bullsh*t.
  • Preparing for auditions, and the mistake Rob made in his casting for 'Fate: The Winx Saga'.
  • Reaching out to casting directors, and how Rob makes sure he stands out.
  • Where to begin, if you are BRAND NEW to the acting industry.
  • What to do when your actual age, might not match your playing age.
  • Communicating your uniqueness to the industry.
  • Standing out on social media, and asking the industry for more!
  • Agents - knowing who to sign with, and knowing when it's time to change.
  • Rob's audition hack - to guarantee you'll book more work.
  • Why we're getting Rob a Twitter account ASAP.
  • And MUCH MUCH more!
