MN Acting Studio is an acclaimed on-camera acting studio located in Herald Square in New York City, with a satellite office in LA. Founded in 2010 by professional actor and acting coach Matt Newton, MN Acting Studio trains actors to work at the highest level in the modern TV and film market, whether they are stepping into an audition, or onto set. We offer coaching and classes for youth through adult, and are highly recommended by agents and managers for our unique approach combining the craft of acting with the business.
We believe in actors putting in the work, being prepared, no b.s., and no excuses. We want our actors to book jobs in TV and film, and to facilitate that, we offer a no nonsense, simple, direct approach based on honesty, feedback, and allowing our actors to fail in a safe environment, and "get out the kinks." We treat our classes like an "actor gym," where actors work out their tv and film acting muscles. We believe every actor is unique, and our classes and coaching focus on helping actors put their fingerprint on their scene, while also creating a dynamic, interesting, emotionally and physically connected performance.
Matt Newton began as a professional tv and film actor, both in Los Angeles and New York City, before turning to coaching in 2010. He is one of the top on-camera coaches in New York City for youth and adults, and recently coached on the set of ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK, JESSICA JONES, THE AFFAIR, BLUE BLOODS, and MASTERS OF NONE. He is an industry expert contributor to Backstage, and the author of the popular book "10 Steps to Breaking into Acting." He currently resides in New York City.
