THE ACTOR’S VOICE
Creating Star Quality and Radiant Presence
There is a difference between an actor and a star. The star persona shines with a unique signature presence that is unmistakably their own. Think of the great stars of Hollywood’s golden age such as Cary Grant or Audrey Hepburn, or someone today like Julia Roberts or Ryan Gosling, and you simply know that everything changes when they enter a room and light up a scene.
How does an actor access that rare magic in themselves, and develop that incandescent presence that is exceptionally their own? Stewart Pearce is the pre-eminent Mentor that has helped stage and screen actor’s find and express their personal gifts in dramatically new and exciting ways, which move audiences and invite acclaim.
Stewart Pearce’s talent is both the art and technique of voice. He empowers extraordinarily talented individuals to perfect and ultimately transcend their craft so that they may move to new levels of embodied genius.
Stewart draws upon his rigorous background as Master of Voice at the Webber Douglas Academy from 1980 to 1997, assisting the pioneering of Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre between 1997 and 2010, and has collaborated with and mentored seven Academy Award Winners for their award-winning performances.
Working with Stewart Pearce helps the actor develop not only their signature sound and star quality. It provides a deeply safe, nurturing creative space for them to explore, refine and express new aspects of their ability.
Some of the stars Stewart Pearce has mentored include: Eddie Redmayne, Matthew Goode, Hugh Bonneville, Mark Rylance, Emilia Clarke, Julia Ormond, Minnie Driver, Simon Callow, Julian Glover, Vanessa Redgrave, Gwendoline Christie – and many other acclaimed Academy Award-winners whose names are kept in confidence.
