“My time at Miskin was unbelievable. It was the best 3 years of education in my life, and they really helped me find myself and my passion for acting. “

He continued:

“I cannot speak highly enough of the acting course tutors, they spent so much time to make sure each actor felt cared for & pushed every single one of us to the max to make sure we achieved the best we could. Forever grateful to them!”
