"Paul Bown was a vital part in helping me create my monologues for drama school.  His knowledge of the industry and the drama school system was a massive help.  He not only understands theatre based training but is brilliant when it comes to screen acting and he gave me the tools and the confidence to face the auditions.  He created a safe environment where I felt I could experiment, try new things and not be afraid to fail.  Without him I would not have the confidence to face the industry and I would not have secured a place on the Guildhall preliminary course as well as being offered other three year courses"




"Paul was my acting teacher for two years.  Before I started working with him, I had a basic idea of what acting was and how to handle it.  He is the person that first made me follow my instincts and trust in the work I was doing.  I began to own it alot more than I had before.  If there is one thing I would say about Paul is that I thoroughly trusted him as both a person and an acting tutor, and had it not been for our work together I honestly dont think I would be where I am today!"

''When working on my monologues for Drama School auditions Paul helped me to lift the words from the page and create living, breathing characters. His experience of the industry and performance was invaluable, it was really useful to hear his thoughts. Paul creates a supportive, safe, friendly  and pressure free environment in which you can explore and build your work. I was given the self belief and confidence which allowed me to secure a place at RADA, on their three year acting course.''



“An actor should have an understanding of people, an insight into them, a sympathy toward them.”



Extra tuition was vital in my success in gaining a place at Tisch School of Acting in New York and Paul Bown proved to be an invaluable part of that teaching.  His insight and experience were invaluable! I cannot thank him enough for his continuous efforts to improve my acting and his kind and welcoming approach really contributed too. Thank you very much for your lessons.
