Fay Beck is the Artistic Director and founder of the Actors Door Studio. Her current role entails establishing and developing the creative vision of the studio, while also overseeing the teachers and tutors who train our students.
She received training in the Meisner Technique at the Actor’s Pulse in Sydney, a school headed by Billy Milionis, who trained under the legendary Sanford Meisner. Fay undertook her acting course at the same time as studying psychology and philosophy at the University of Sydney. After majoring in both subjects she then successfully completed a Diploma of Arts in Film & Gender Studies a year later.
Her psychological and philosophical theories concerning the human psyche underpin her work as an actress, writer, director, instructor and storyteller.
Once graduated, she went on to privately coach aspiring and experienced actors, while developing her own career as a screenwriter, director and producer. Fay’s in-depth knowledge and experience in the fields of psychology, philosophy, story and film has enabled her to develop a unique approach to training actors, the Beck Emotional Access Technique (BEATTM)
