TWELVE STEPS To Becoming A Great Actor
As a comprehensive acting tool, please utilize the 12-steps to becoming a great actor based on Ivana Chubbuck’s techniquefoundinherbook,“ThePoweroftheActor.”
My approach to the work is not influenced by any one singular teacher or technique. I have studied and admired the work of many, such as Sanford Meisner, Uta Hagen, Larry Moss, Ivana Chubbuck and Elizabeth Kemp.
It is my intention to bring greater insight and value to my work and pass that knowledge along to my students by continually furthering my own training and development as an artist. With this in mind, I was fortunate to complete the Hagen Teacher Training Program with Carol Rosenfeld at HB Studio, NYC.
I am based in Los Angeles but have lived and worked between Southern California and Australia throughout my life. I had the privilege of serving as a teacher at the prestigious 16th Street Actors Studio in Melbourne, Australia and I continue teaching for the studio via zoom.
In 2020 I began teaching zoom classes for AAFTA, and back here in Los Angeles I continue developing my own FTA classes. In 2018 I co-developed and co-produced two LA and NYC workshops with Oscar, Tony and Pulitzer prize winning writer/director, John Patrick Shanley, and in 2019 I co-produced and directed one of his short plays right here in Hollywood.
I am a Founding Co-Artistic Director and was the Head of Talent in charge of casting and training over 5 years for our now defunct Australian Theatre Company. In 2019 I was proud to be the Program Director for one of the biggest short play festivals in the world, Short+Sweet Hollywood Latino. I was responsible for initiating our partnership with NBC UNIVERSAL and ARGENTUM STUDIOS.
“Jackie is a highly intuitive, warm and supportive teacher, with a great capacity for empathy. Her attention to detail is uncanny, she doesn’t miss a thing; and her observations lead us into a greater, and more profound understanding.”

“Jackie participated in the Uta Hagen’s Teacher’s Lab, a program designed for acting teachers who are interested in Hagen’s practical approach to technique and text as well as continuing their professional development. Jackie stood out among the other talented teachers who participated. Her curious nature was evident throughout our time together, always observing, listening and actively contributing to our discussions. We’ve forged a lasting friendship and have good conversations about teaching, art, acting and life. She is a person of fine character.”
