Today.ie caught up with Limerick actor Lauren McCarthy who is also with the Limerick School of Acting. We asked Lauren about her beginnings in acting as well as how it feels to teach future generations of Limerick’s acting talent.
Since we started the adult acting course a couple of years ago we have been amazed at how much our students have achieved in such a short time.
For example: Tommy Hourston has appeared on the Belltable stage in Pigtown, played roles on TG4, appeared on Game of Thrones, Vikings and Reign, and landed a Meteor TV commercial.
Many of our students have landed roles in local short movies and local stage productions not least of which are Philip Coffey and Brian O’Regan who will star in a new Irish feature film ‘Cattle Raid’ this summer.
Well done guys!!
June 2013: Two of our 11 yr old boys are presently auditioning for Hubbard Casting in London for the lead role in a major new feature film. Good luck guys!
Three Limerick School of Acting students have been called for a movie audition this January 2013 thanks to our new casting database for casting directors.
We wish them the best of luck!
It’s been an exciting year at the Limerick School of Acting.
To celebrate our twentieth year we have made some cool changes. We introduced adult acting classes with emphasis on film acting that are proving to be extremely popular. We made several top quality films in May/June 2012 and had great fun entering the ‘Film-In-A-Day’ competition. In fact, our school is really making a mark on the local film making scene in a very short space of time with our actors already in demand for other projects.
Our kids are also in big demand with regular requests from casting agents in Dublin as they realise that we have some incredible talent emerging from the school.
So, as we enter our 21st year, our goal is to make our mark nationally and let the rest of the country discover the talent we have in abundance at the Limerick School of Acting!
July 5th 2012: Busy morning. Just secured auditions this weekend in Dublin for two girls aged 10-12 for a major feature film . A 10 yr old male student was shortlisted for a TV commercial two hours ago, and another student wrapped a short movie yesterday starring opposite Harry Potter’s mother Geraldine Somerville. Limerick School of Acting students are making their mark!
