“…he was able to uncover the emotional barriers that prevented me from being truly present …”

I swear at Jeb Beach. I call Jeb every name in the book. I tell him to f*** off, and I wish him well on his travels to hot, horrible places. Not because he’s a bad guy, but because, as an acting coach, he has an extraordinary talent to tap into an actor’s soul. In the scene study classes I have taken with Jeb, he was able to uncover the emotional barriers that prevented me from being truly present in a scene. This is not an easy thing to do to a shy, private person. In the safe environment that Jeb provides, my acting abilities have improved, and I know how to better prepare myself for those all important auditions.

I may swear at Jeb Beach, but I swear by him as one of Vancouver’s best acting teachers.
