Ruth Carney is one of my favourite TV directors. I met her working on BBC's Doctors back in 2017 - and from the second I entered the audition room, I could tell she just really understood actors.
Since we shot Doctors, Ruth has gone on to direct Casualty, Holby City - and is currently directing Emmerdale.
In this 2 HOUR mastermind call, we dive deep into Ruth's process, learn how she casts her guest roles in the above shows - and members of Act On This jump on camera for some 1-2-1 coaching too!
During the broadcast, we discuss:
- Ruth's background in theatre directing and her transition into TV.
- How Ruth casts her day player roles in TV serial drama.
- Why getting direction in your audition is a GOOD thing.
- The many reasons why actors don't land the job.
- Why you should always bring your best self into the audition room.
- The best way for actors to get on Ruth's casting radar.
- How to write the best emails to TV directors like Ruth.

- Why you MUST research the shows you are auditioning for.
