In this Industry
No one tells you how to Succeed
That is why I became Insanely Obsessed with helping Actors achieve their career goals
Many of my Working Actors Clients
Came to me when they stuck In the comfortable stereotypical “Small Speaking Role Zone.” The fact that they were getting very well paid work regularly wasGreat!
But this was not what they dreamt when they first started on their journey. I helped my clients take charge of their career and learn focus and direct their steps towards crafting the career path they wanted.
I have 3 Groups of Acting Career Coaching Clients
Most of my Current Acting Coaching Clients Come to me because they have significant roles, in a series or a film and they need to give their best performances possible. I give them in-depth character development coaching and all the support they need.
Group two want to hon their craft; they are determined to master the Method the are my Method Acting Students. I help them with achieving higher and higher levels of mastery.
My group three are established Actors who want to leap from being a regular small speaking part in a series to getting a significant role in a film or series. Those are Career Coaching Clients.
Ever since I can remember I wanted to be a successful actor doing the work I wanted picking and choosing my roles as I pleased. Deep down what I really wanted was the freedom to work on my own projects and create as much as I liked.
All my life I believed strongly that I could make it by simply doing what I was told to do and what everyone was doing. After completing my BA in Acting at University I was fearless, determined and full of faith. I didn’t apply to 100 auditions in a year I would apply to 1000s.
As time went by I had this gut-level feeling that I was doing it wrong.
I was doing exactly what most of you are doing right now: Submit Submit Submit. Wait by the phone. Hope for the best. Keeping up to date with all the must do’s: headshots, Equity, showreel, agent. While getting rejected. Discouraged and depressed. Afraid of opening my emails and moving houses so I wouldn’t get any more rejection letters.
As time went by I had this gut-level feeling that I was doing it wrong. That it wasn’t going to work. In fact, the more work and effort I put into in this crazy submit-submit-submit manner, the further and further and further away I felt from accomplishing my dreams.
This left me feeling unworthy of success. I started shying away from my inner light. Far from the worldwide admiration, I desired I was seriously doubting my ability to succeed.
So, being a writer with several stories under my belt and a beautiful feature-length screenplay, twenty years ago I decided to approach my acting career differently, from a Producer/Director point of view. I was going to do my own work and star in it. Simple!
In the meantime, while putting my plan to work, I managed to get great acting roles. Since my approach was very different, now was only going after my heart's desire, and I was always successful in getting the roles I went for.
My new found plan of becoming a Producer so I could star on my own films took me on a long, yet exciting learning and self-discovery avenue culminating in an...
MA in Filmmaking, eight short films, several more stories, a "Best Produced" Film Award in 2013 at the San Diego International Kids film festival, being on the official selection is some of the greatest film festivals in the world
Most importantly, I’m currently working on my first Feature Film #MontanaMischief. I have an amazing part in it but I’m even more excited with the parts I have created for other Actors like my lovely #JannelleMontana

Drama Teacher and Mum of aspiring Actor and Singer.
I am so pleased to have the opportunity to recommend these amazing coaching to you. I recommend them to you as both a Drama teacher and as a Mum of an aspiring young actor.
First of all, these courses are powered by an amazing lady. Sylvia really cares about her message, projects and her students. I have been so impressed by the support and positivity she has shared with both my son and myself.
I first came across the Monologue Mastery courses when my son applied for one of the films Sylvia was producing. Her input has really inspired him. He followed all her guidance and created a selection of monologues so he could show a variety of aspects of his acting ability to create different characters. He has embraced her warm-up techniques and is much more confident in the whole audition process. We have many conversations based on the things that Sylvia writes and I genuinely feel that this information has helped him fine-tune his film and Theatre goals.
As a Mum I would also like to highlight that the courses inspire life skills that work across all aspects of life, ‘be prepared, likeable and easy to work with’ is true in the classroom, sports field and work place.
I am also a Drama Teacher for children. I see the power of Drama and Theatre to build young people’s confidence and resilience. I have imparted many of the courses amazing ideas to my students. I love some of the exercises that Sylvia suggests. My students loved the session we did on talking gibberish to each other. Often I find in improvisation, it is hard to concentrate on showing an emotion when you are trying to think of the right words to say. The students were able to really show emotion in their actions and faces as they did not have to focus on appropriate words. They also loved our session on laughing which was another idea I implemented from Sylvia. When the students had explored the power of laughter we then talked about the feelings and emotions evoked. They stunned me with some of their responses.
I feel that the knowledge, warmth and experience of Sylvia is evident in all aspects of her work, The positive impact of following her training and brilliantly articulated ideas can empower each and every one of us.
Hi there. My name is Isaac and I am a young actor and singer. I have been working with Sylvia for the last 6 months. I applied to be part of her latest film and through that I was lucky enough to become part of her Monologue Mastery Acting Course.
The first thing I would like to say is how much I really believe Sylvia cares about her students. Every email we wrote and questions we had were answered straight away. She has really supported me towards my goals and her wise words have helped clarify what my goals are.
As a young actor, I am always excited to go to auditions. Being part of the Monologue Mastery Acting Course has improved my preparation 100%. Sylvia encouraged me to build up a selection of monologues rather than just having one that I used over and over again. This has improved how I feel when I get to an audition. I know that not only have I prepared the requested piece but I can show them my acting skills by quickly switching to another character. I have also used this approach with my singing preparation.
The course is going great!
I’m really enjoying studying The monologue and I was fascinated by your journey in this industry.
What I found very interesting was learning about the archetypes and how every character and person fit into mainly one of them. This has really helped me connect with characters from my own monologues and I will definitely use this in the future.
I really appreciate the Actors Inspirational Journal. I loved the layout of all the pages with the inspirational quotes and pictures, my favourite being: “Without wonder and insight, acting is just a business. With it, it becomes creation.” By Bete Davis. I look forward to experimenting with this journal. Many Thanks.
What I found very beneficial about the coaching course was learning your character before lines. Also, the acting method was you should be as your character for a day and really imagine how the character will speak walk, e.t.c. As I'm auditioning for Alex I pretended to be a bad boy with no regrets. I really appreciate you taking the time to create this course as I have learnt new things that will help through my acting career. Thank you.
Sylvia Love Johnson is a force of nature with her passion and her ability to breakdown acting techniques. I have appreciated her commitment and her ability to inspire, challenge and support young talent. My daughter has greatly benefited from the coaching sessions and precious advice. Thanks so much.
I would recommend Sylvia very very highly as an acting career coach. Her coaching and mentoring of my son Ross,13, has been top drawer. Sylvia is so clever and talented and has an immense wealth of knowledge and experience to share. Her gentle, positive and bubbly personality is just perfect to draw a young, occasionally-awkward person like Ross out of himself and help him believe anything is possible.
Sylvia nurtures the relationship with Ross and with myself in order that we can be the best supportive unit that we can be and we both love her to bits.
In the world of Lights, Sound, Camera, Action, Cut - Indeed Acting Career Coach insights and inputs help in keeping grounded and close to reality both in real life and reel life. Thus, actors live life as acting and act as living life. Thanks much.
