Congratulations to Yelisey Kazakevich, Selma Kaymakci, Priya Ghotane, Anise Napoleao dos Reis and Lily Huong Mac on wrapping White Bird: A Wonder Story starring Gillian Anderson and Helen Mirren, directed by Marc Forster (Quantum of Solace, Monster’s Ball). Matyas Hronek, while not appearing in the film, was Bryce Gheisar’s double and got a chance to meet Helen Mirren! Check out our students’ profiles on IMDB and boost their star rating!
Theatre teaching at the English College adapted during lockdown restrictions to focus on increasing the quality of our students’s acting for the camera. Casting for Hollywood productions such as these happened remotely or in the brief window the campus was open at the end of 2020. A huge thanks to Myrnyx Tyrnyx Casting for affording us these wonderful opportunities and working with us to develop our skills. We are immensely proud of how our students adjusted to these changes in the curriculum and how many of them were rewarded with the most impressive outcome of all: starring in a movie
