LISTEN to today's show!

Warner Loughlin is releasing an acting book, The Warner Loughlin Technique: An Acting Revolution (Howland-Tilley Press, January 30, 2018) and taking interviews in support of her tour.

Warner truly is the woman behind the talent! With her guidance actors are finding the well to dip into for their performances. She's the reason half the movies and TV shows you watch are enjoyable, and she is available for general Hollywood discussion in time for Awards season kicking off this January... as well as more detailed discussions such as:

  • Her acting method and how it prepares A-listers for their performances
  • Performances by any of her clients (full list below)
  • How her technique varies so much from other acting methods out there (it focuses on emotional wellness and not perpetuating trauma)
  • What it's like working with Hollywood couples (Amy Adams and Darren Le Gallo, Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds)
  • Weinstein-related commentary
  • Women supporting women in "the industry"
  • The misconception of the actor as ‘diva’
  • How Warner developed her technique and why
  • History of acting techniques and methods
  • The positive emotional benefits of using the WLT instead of other types of acting training
  • How the WLT provides personal benefits aside from acting, such as discovering the source of childhood wounds and ways Loughlin has found to heal them
  • “I slept with Ryan Reynolds 27 times. Kidding! (But I did tell my husband that.) Shooting Buried was so emotionally exhausting that on our lunch breaks, he would take a couch in the green room and I would take the other one. Only in Spain could you actually take a siesta while shooting.”
  • The business of the business and how it’s changed
  • What being on set is really like
  • Different directors - their strengths and weaknesses (please note, Loughlin will not name names but can speak generally)
  • How her blind belief that anything is possible led her from a tiny mountain town in North Carolina to LA
  • How writers use this technique to develop characters

“I’ve been working with Warner Loughlin for years. Not only has she helped me become a better actor, but she’s also helped me truly enjoy this work in ways I never imagined.”

-Ryan Reynolds
