ANDREW ONOCHIE

 In-House Acting Coach 

Andrew’s got a heck of a talent for storytelling both on and off camera. He’s been acting since the ripe age of 5 and has since built an inspiring career in this industry. As a performer, Andrew has worked with award-winning filmmakers, been part of the hit CBS series “Seal Team”, and has even been nominated for awards as Best Actor. As a filmmaker, he has produced multiple feature films, one of which made it to #1 in the Nigerian Box Office.  And as an acting coach, he has worked with talents such as Dayo Okeniyi (Hunger Games, Greek Freak) and Maria Sten (Swamp Thing, Straight Outta Compton).


If you’re looking for an audition coach that has real-life, multi-faceted industry experience and a strong passion for helping actors find the magic in their scenes, Andrew is it!  He uses a unique approach derived from Meisner technique — focusing on living in the moment, breaking down the scene, diving deep into the character, and ultimately letting it all go for a more freeing performance!
