14. Hank Schob: Acting Coach at Penny Templeton Studio | Q&A

Hank and I had the opportunity to connect through our mutual friend, Ryan Kessler, who was a previous guest of Actorcast. I was inspired by Hank's devotion to the craft of acting and enjoyed having him share his insights with you all. We talk about why actors need to build a stronger work ethic, why script analysis is such an important class to take, and one of the biggest hurdles that actors need to overcome.

As well as being Co-Owner, Hank Schob teaches Camera Technique, Green Screen and Private Coaching for Actors at Penny Templeton Studio. A graduate of the American Academy of Dramatic Arts, Hank immediately began working on stage. His 50 years of theatre experience Off Broadway include the hit show Your Own Thing, Regional Theatre, and National Tours with stars such as Richard Gere in Awake and Sing, Jose Ferrer in Cyrano, and John Raitt in Shenandoah.
