Actress Tilly Blackwood has launched Audition Doctor, a new business start-up which provides coaching and tuition for drama school applicants, professional actors, corporate clients and individuals whose job requires effective communication.
Tilly took the pragmatic step to set up, Audition Doctor when she found herself struggling with a sudden lack of work. Having attended one of Britain’s best drama schools – The Guildhall School of Music and Drama – coupled with having worked with actors and directors who have exerted influence on not only the British but international stage, she was equipped with a body of knowledge few could boast of.
As an actress she has worked with the theatrical industry’s elite, from Sir Peter Hall and Max Stafford-Clark to Lindsay Posner and Simon Curtis. Her achingly funny performance as Helena in ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ with Dawn French, prompted Jennifer Saunders to write her into ‘Absolutely Fabulous.’
Tilly’s current pool of clients are professionals from a range of spheres that includes journalists, architects and development directors from charitable organisations.
