Testimonials from film and TV actors

Seamus Dever

Seamus Dever

"I had the pleasure of teaching with Kacie Stetson for a few years at a school in Hollywood. Kacie has the gift of an incredible, nurturing energy and an ability to engage with her students, of which I was always jealous. Alongside her training, Kacie has a knowledge of the way things work in Hollywood and that is something which cannot be undervalued. This “real world” stuff cuts through her student's issues and allows great breakthroughs to occur. When watching her students’ scenes, I always found a compelling energy and a clear intention from them. The ability to reach young actors and strip away the artifice of “acting” to get at the truth of a situation is Kacie’s talent. I suggest you spend a few minutes talking “craft” with her and find out for yourself".

"I believe foundation to be paramount in an actor's development. I was fortunate enough to train with the best early in my career and Kacie Stetson a standout. Her brutal honesty and sniper-like efficiency is still the voice in my head today. 'What would Kacie say?' I'd always ask myself. Kacie would say 'Act from you LOINS and stop SUCKING.' Thank you Kacie, I'm forever in your debt."

"I can't recommend 'The Kacie Stetson Studio' to just anyone. You don't have to be the most famous actor but you do have to be passionate about your craft and serious about doing the work! Kacie is one of the best, if not the best around. Her approach, which she has developed from many years in the industry, helps each individual actor bring depth and dynamics to their work making it unique and memorable. I have been studying with Kacie for over 2 years now and it's the best decision I have made. I feel confident in my ability to make strong choices and am able to get to any emotion in seconds, thanks to exercises we learn in class. She has not only helped me understand my craft and start booking professional acting work but also myself, my experiences and how to use them to win the scene!"

"Kacie was one of the first people to teach me the craft of acting. Before I moved to LA to train with Kacie, I thought acting was mimicking what the actor saw on TV or film did. I'll give you a second to laugh...Kacie taught me how to make my work my own. How to really dig deep into my heart and soul to make my work truthful and unique. Since training with Kacie I have worked on such shows as 'Criminal Minds', 'Scandal','How To Get Away With Murder', 'Mom' among other great shows!!  Thank you Kacie darling for giving me the tools to make my dreams a reality."

"I've been studying with Kacie for over 3 years. Her 'Acting from the Core' technique has transformed my acting. She is meticulous with her preparation, razor sharp with her feedback and pulls no punches. The real proof is putting it into action, and I have used the technique religiously. It is amazing what this kind of training can do, how confident and in the moment you are. A truly inspirational, hugely talented and beautiful woman".

"Kacie is hilarious, courageous and TALENTED as HELL. One of the most brilliant acting coaches I have had the pleasure to work with. She has the ability to dig deep inside an actor and pull out genius. She pushes you to the edge but has the insight and compassion to keep you from going over. She is an actor in her soul so she understands the actor from the inside out. I have studied with a lot of great teachers but she is one of the BEST".
