Dublin’s Bow Street Academy for Screen Acting has joined up with Spotlight Casting to bring us Bow Street Meets, a web series featuring interviews with leading Actors, Agents, Casting Directors and Filmmakers about acting.

Each guest gives insightful tips for emerging and established actors about a variety of topics including auditions, self taping, showreels, headshots, nerves and shared experiences from working at the very top of the Film & TV industry.

To start the series they have launched videos with casting director Margery Simkin, and actors Richard E. Grant and Jack Reynor. More will follow, including interviews with actors Aidan Gillen and Fiona Shaw. All can be watched on the Bow Street Meets website,
