"I came into The Gap program tired of feeling like I was failing in the thing that I loved," Adam said. "I wanted to be a world-class actor but was lacking the know-how and confidence to be there.
"The Actors' Hub training was individualised and helped me to be a better actor, teaching me how to take characters from the page and bring them to life, as well as different techniques and different styles of theatre.
"Even more surprising was learning how to be an entrepreneur and gaining the ability to run my acting career with a business mindset. Knowing how to produce shows and film projects and knowing how to network are invaluable skills."
Since signing with Morrissey Management, Adam has auditioned for film and television roles across Australia, New York and London.
"The Actors' Hub never gave up on me, regardless of the stumbles and ups and downs that came with my growth," he said. "For every time I said 'help me' someone was there to teach, guide and coach me into being a better actor, entrepreneur and person."
"The Gap went further than any course I know by training you not just in the practice of performance but also in self-development. The Actors' Hub helped me reach my goals by being there for every step of my journey, tailoring my training to hit weaknesses in my acting and personal habits to make them strengths.
"Other goals were vocal projection, physical and emotional connection to character and having the tools needed to thrive in the industry. Without all that help, I wouldn't have been signed to an agency – a major goal we had set."
"We take our investment in our actors seriously – when they sign up with us we make a commitment to supporting them throughout their career, which makes The Actors' Hub the leader in training for the actor entrepreneur," she said. "We challenge our actors to go beyond what they thought they were capable of, through the systems we have created for them, based on our experiences of navigating the pathway into and through the industry."
