About Patrick Russell co-founder, The Actors Space SF

“The Actors Space has provided just that and more. Lauren and Patrick are both world class teachers and mentors--rigorous, disciplined, understanding, respectful. I am grateful to them both for providing a program that meets both artistic and practical needs.” -Mary P. “How could I possibly get better at what I'd learned if I wasn't doing it on a regular basis? I needed a place to practice and train. For me, it's something I feel TAS has uniquely to offer. I can't have all the acting techniques stuck in my head. I want to have a better ability to perform. For me it means, I need more than anything a place to practice, train, learn new skills and cultivate, repeat. And I think it all comes with the environment that Patrick and Lauren have created.” -Sakura N. "The Actor's Space is the only studio I've trained at that address the entire acting experience — from the nitty gritty moments of how to walk into an audition room to how to connect with the audience or prepare for rehearsal. I leave every session feeling not only more confident with my ability and talent, but also empowered to have the kind of career I want. I've never met a teacher like Patrick who genuinely cares so much about my journey as an actor and human being. I'm a better artist for the hours that I get to spend learning from him. You will be, too." -Daniela S.
