Famous Actor Advises Students

25/02/2021

Actor Robert Emms, known for his roles in Chernobyl (2019), War Horse (2011) and Broken (2012), generously gave his time, advice and experiences to our year 9, 10 and 11 Drama students today during a live lesson. Robert gave a detailed, engaging and uplifting session and actively encouraged students to ask questions about his career, how to get into an acting as a career and the industry in general. The opportunity to listen to and speak to Robert broadened the students’ knowledge about acting and highlighted the many other opportunities there are in this exciting sector. He took the time to explain about the roles that make up the crew and the brilliant opportunities there are here in the UK.  Staff and students left the conversation uplifted and hopeful for the return of full practical drama lessons and extra-curricular drama at Haygrove as soon as possible! 

“I was so pleased to see our students asking questions that demonstrated a real curiosity and passion for the arts and the creative industry. They wanted to know how to get into acting, asked for tips on how to get into character and what his favourite things are about the roles he has played,” said Mrs Joseph, Head of Drama.

What our students said:

“It was a great opportunity and I enjoyed it a lot! :)” Lily, Year 9 

“That was a great experience thank you giving me the opportunity. I've learned that you can become an actor by starting with just 1 line.” Leo, Year 10 

“It was very interesting to find out how he got into acting and I will take his advice on calming nerves … thank you for setting it up, I thoroughly enjoyed it! :)” Abi, Year 10 

“It has shown me that there is no other career in the world that can give you the experiences that acting can give you. Thank you very much for arranging this session. It has really helped me become more motivated.” Oscar, Year 10. 

“I thought the session today was really good and I’ve taken a lot from it. Particularly when he said that he would have liked to perhaps have got a history degree or travelled more before going into the industry because I really want to get a history degree so it opened my eyes to the fact that I could do that and possible pursue drama as well without solely focussing on the performing arts.” Freya, Year 10. 

“I enjoyed it a lot he has been in some films I really liked so it was quite exciting and helpful to know what I can expect going into A level drama.” Jack, Year 11
