  • Chris Hemsworth & Paul O'Brien (Logie Awards)

    A message from Paul: I've had the privilege of working with Chris Hemsworth (Thor) on Home & Away. When I journeyed to L.A. for pilot season, Chris graciously mentored me, showed me the ropes, and assisted me in setting up. During that time, I was in the company of Eliza Taylor (The 100). We were constantly in auditions and had to memorize numerous lines in a short time, which I found quite daunting as I was never trained for that at acting school.

    Over the years, I delved into countless acting books and undertook extensive training, rigorously studying every acting technique available and attending classes for a decade. However, I found that this intense study was turning me into a 'thinking actor' - like a director I was dissecting scenes into beats and wants, adhering to large print and focused on the words and punctuation. However, I noticed that Chris and E.J. had a totally different approach to their auditions.

    Now, I want to share with you the secret strategies I learned from them and other working Actors
