The Actors Gateway Meisner classes in Putney, London with Bryan Oliver

Bryan Oliver Meisner teacherI have over 15 years experience of the Meisner technique and have spent many more years working as an actor, writer and director.

I offer a space where actors can experiment, explore, dare and triumph. I will nurture and inspire you to develop at your own individual pace, giving the time and devotion for you to truly absorb and implement this incredible technique.

I teach Sanford Meisner Repetition, Independent Activity, Knock, Emotional Preparation, Improvisation, Spoon Rivers, in-depth Scene Work and more.

  • Meisner said that acting is “living truthfully under imaginary circumstances”.

I will teach you to access and develop the art of truly listening, absorbing and reacting - in the moment, organically and under imaginary circumstances.

To get rid of self-judgment, to silence that critical voice inside that can sabotage. This technique can free you as an actor AND a human being. Suitable for actors who are Meisner beginners and actors who want to brush up on their Meisner.

Some past Actors Gateway student testimonials:

Bryan Oliver’s Meisner class has made a profound difference to my career. Within a few weeks of starting class, I was shooting a series called Crossing Lines with William Fichtner. I noticed how much easier it was for me to be present and in flow than it had been before I started Meisner, and what a powerful connection I had with Bill Fichtner, unlike anything I’d experienced before. It has also made a huge difference to my experience of casting interviews. I don’t get nervous anymore and am fully present throughout the whole process. My hit rate since starting Meisner dramatically improved; I get far more offers than I used to.

  • Bryan is a wonderful teacher and training in the Meisner technique has been a complete game changer for me. Can not recommend these classes highly enough. Natalie Hughes

I was eased into the technique at a steady pace in a really supportive environment. I can’t recommend him enough! Scott Hume

  • I'm not exaggerating when I say that doing Meisner with The Actors Gateway completely changed me as an actor, for the better. I felt as though my full potential as an actor was being reached- something I did not feel happened at drama school. It is just such an incredibly safe space to be vulnerable, and for me, knowing I was safe allowed me to do my best work. Bryan's feedback is always constructive and he gives you the confidence to push yourself and progress. It's worth mentioning that these classes are also just an absolute joy. I quite simply wouldn't be the actor I am today without The Actors Gateway. Sara Matin

This has 'changed my life', this has 'blown my mind' and when the time is right and when I'm ready I will have 'the greatest tools an actor can have.
