Jane Drake Brody: Master Teacher
Buchanan Mi
There can be no more exciting activity than teaching talented young actors to release the joy in them. I am a former actress, singer, agent, director, casting director, and long time teacher. Currently I write books that I hope are helpful to actors, teachers and directors. These books are Acting, Archetype, and Neuroscience, Routledge Press, and The Actor's Business Plan, A Career Guide for the Acting Life. Bloomsbury Press.

Over the years, my students have included such names as Eric Stonestreet (Modern Family), Michael Shannon (Academy Award Nominee for Nocturnal Animals, Elvis and Nixon), TR Knight, (Gray's Anatomy, Broadway, Noises Off), Joe Keery (Stranger Things), Tyler Ross (The Killing), Melissa Peterman (Reba), Sally Richardson (Stitchers, Rosewood, I am Legend) as well as many other wonderful actors working on screen and on stage.

My interest is in helping actors to work more often and to work smarter when they do. I study neuroscience and mythology as well as acting theory to use every possibility to further the art of acting.
