Meg Hennessy Talks About Summer Acting Courses in New York

August 04, 2020 - /PressAdvantage/ - Maggie Flanigan Studio, an acting studio based in New York, NY, has released an interview with Meg Hennessy where she discusses their summer acting program, which she enrolled in after searching for summer acting courses near me. The interview focused on how Meg Hennessy came to New York to train at the Maggie Flanigan Studio and her experiences in studying in the program while working professionally. She points out that the two-year program turned out to be much more than she had initially expected.

At the core of the summer acting program is the Meisner Summer Intensive, which lasts for six weeks. This is an 18-class program that introduces the Meisner technique, which was developed by Sanford Meisner as a systematic approach to acting that employs exercises that build upon each other as the actor progresses.

When asked about the two-year summer acting program, which she had almost completed, Meg Hennessy said, “For me, it means having a safe space to foster your creativity and allowing yourself to discover who you are as an artist and what that means for you in your life, and also, how it’s going to affect other people. It’s just been such an expansive process and so life-changing and better than I was expecting or could have even imagined.”

She also pointed out that the one thing that surprised her about the program was that everything that she needed to act is already there. Everything is already in the person, and all that a person has to do is to get rid of those barriers to gain access to it. She realized that she already had the courage and the strength and that it was fun and exciting for her to discover that she could stand up for herself, and this allowed her to grow as an actor and as a person.

She also discusses the steps that she took that led her to train in one of the leading acting for film summer programs New York has to offer. She stated that she had always wanted to live in New York and that when she discovered the Meisner technique, she was really excited about its potential. She had studied in a college in Ireland but she was not happy with it because she already knew that what she wanted to do was to act. And when she did move to New York and found the Maggie Flanigan Studio, she felt that it was a place where she felt safe and she did everything she could to get in. Although it was really a tough program, she pointed out that she never regretted her decision to study acting in that studio.

The Meisner technique, she realized, has to do with her finding out what she was really like as a person and what she is capable of. That was important because she was not able to differentiate herself from the character she was portraying without knowing herself first. In the second year of her training, she learned how to add character such that she is able to come up with a safe method of becoming somebody else.

She explained that she chose the Maggie Flanigan Studio because it was small enough to feel like home and that it allowed her to get to know her classmates and her teachers well. And when she was there, she realized that the teachers can also be both mentors and friends.

Meg Hennessy is an up and coming Irish actress who became known for her role in the 2013 film on dyslexia, “I Have Sex Daily.” She has also played a number of roles in Off-Broadway theatre, such as “London Assurance,” “The Plough and the Stars,” “Juno and the Paycock,” “The Shadow of a Gunman,” and “The Dead, 1904.”

Ukrainian leader felt Trump pressure before taking office

Sep 20, 2020

KYIV, Ukraine — More than two months before the phone call that launched the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump, Ukraine's newly elected leader was already worried about pressure from the U.S. president to investigate his Democratic rival Joe Biden. Volodymyr Zelenskiy gathered a small group of advisers on May 7 in Kyiv for a meeting that was supposed to be about his nation's energy needs. Instead, the group spent most of the three-hour discussion talking about how to navigate the insistence from Trump and his personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani for a probe and how to avoid becoming entangled in...

Europe's specialty food makers brace for US tariffs

Sep 20, 2020

MILAN — European producers of premium specialty agricultural products like French wine, Italian Parmesan and Spanish olives are facing a U.S. tariff hike due Friday with a mix of trepidation and indignation at being dragged into a trade war they feel they have little to do with. The tariffs on $7.5 billion on a range of European goods were approved by the World Trade Organization as compensation for illegal EU subsidies to plane maker Airbus. The U.S. has some leeway in deciding what goods it puts tariffs on. So while it is taxing European aircraft goods an extra 10%, it...

BRUSSELS — The Latest on Britain's plans to leave the European Union (all times local): 10 a.m. The British government says talks with the European Union are making progress, despite the lack of a breakthrough overnight.

Bulgarian prime minister condemns soccer racism

Sep 20, 2020

SOFIA, Bulgaria — Bulgarian Prime Minister Boyko Borissov condemned the racist behavior of his country's soccer fans on Tuesday, a day after the national team played England in a European Championship qualifying match. Local fans made Nazi salutes and directed monkey noises at the black players on England's national team. England won 6-0, but the match was halted twice in an effort to stop the abuse. "It is unacceptable that Bulgaria, one of the most tolerant countries in the world where people of different ethnicities live in peace, to be associated with racism and xenophobia," Borissov wrote in a post...

Kosovo election winner in no rush to restart Serbia talks

Sep 20, 2020

PRISTINA, Kosovo — A left-wing party leader poised to become Kosovo's next prime minister said Tuesday he isn't in any rush to restart formal talks intended to normalize relations with Serbia and won't lift the previous government's 100% tariff on Serb imports. In a general election held Sunday, Albin Kurti's Movement for Self-the Determination, or Vetevendosje, defeated center-right political groupings formed by former Kosovo Liberation Army fighters who had governed since 2007. Kosovo, a former Serbian province, declared independence in 2008, a decade after an insurrection by KLA fighters and Serbian strongman Slobodan Milosevic's bloody crackdown launched a 1998-99 war....
