Actors Studio

Actors Giving Back takes its clients by the hand and teaches them the ropes of how to get involved in the entertainment industry the RIGHT WAY. We train young actors between the ages of 7-17 in commercial acting, improvisation, monologues, cold reading and scene study.

The company was founded in 2009 to revolutionize the talent development industry. There are so many companies that take advantage of families trying to get started in the entertainment business. Some of those companies even took advantage of some well-known actors including David DeLuise. His name and image were used by a company without permission for almost 2 years after he hosted a ONE DAY event for them. It was brought to his attention by a Disney Channel attorney and the situation was taken care of immediately. That is when we all realized we need to put a stop to those companies. That experience made David realize there is a true need for a company that is honest and straight forward with people. David and an entertainment executive reached out to some of their actor friends that you have seen on the “Disney Channel” and other networks to get involved with this project and give back to the kids and fans of their shows. Kids now have the chance to have their favorite actors they watch on T.V. personally guide them, teach them and mentor them. 

We have now seen similar companies follow in our footsteps and even use the words, “Giving Back” and “Celebrity Mentors.” We are proud to be the leaders of this positive movement. Actors Giving Back is keeping the talent development industry honest. We are and will continue to be the original advocates for child actors.
