who work as actors

Actors who are part of the Collective have gone on to work in Hollywood films, on Broadway, for the National Theatre, in the West End and in series for Netflix, Apple TV, HBO, BBC, ITV and Channel 4.

don’t just take our word for it

The staff at Collective genuinely care for the well-being of all of their students, they want to see you win! They’re driven to give actors from underrepresented backgrounds a voice and that’s what we need more of in our industry. So if you’re an actor, a performer, a creative who wants to create their own work and give a voice to the voiceless, joining the Collective is the best thing you could do for yourself.

Seyan Sarvan – Channel 4’s It’s a Sin and HBO’s The Baby

I was working in the West End before I graduated and I genuinely felt more prepared and ready to utilise my skills having been trained by staff from Collective. I was able to pick up a script and know instantly what to do and how to navigate it. I felt strong and confident with my actor’s process and knew exactly how to tackle the industry as an actor and an artist.

At Collective we believe that an educational environment should be an inspiring place to be. Our new campus is situated in a beautiful Grade-II listed building with state of the art facilities – including two theatres, a recording studio, and numerous modern rehearsal rooms.

Looking to promote yourself to agents and casting directors? Check out our exceptional screen acting and showreel package.

Getting a new showreel can be daunting  for graduates. However, thanks to the Collective Screen Acting Intensives and Showreel Consultation sessions, I felt more than prepared to deliver my best performance on shooting day. This is despite having had little to no screen acting experience prior. The whole process was fantastic and I cannot thank the team enough.
