It was just a Sunday like any other but there were two events this past
Sunday that gave great pleasure.
O'Brien accepting his Logie for 'Most Popular New Male Talent'
achieved what he described as a dream come true
when he won the Logie for Most Popular New Male
Talent on Sunday night at Crown Casino. Prior
to PAUL accepting his award JULES LUND (another
Rehearsal Room actor) had been interviewing arrivals on the
Red Carpet at the start of the evenings proceedings. JULES was
initially very excited that PAUL had been nominated but he was
thrilled when PAUL won the award and JULES immediately sent
an SMS to The Rehearsal Room. This was the Logie Awards 50th
first came to The Rehearsal Room in September 2002. JULES had started
in July 2002. They did a number of classes together.
Earlier in the day
director Richard Sarell had achieved something too. After 12 months
of trying he finally managed to swim a kilometre without stopping.
Whats the connection between these two events you ask? Its
simply this. If you keep working at something you eventually get
there. PAUL OBRIEN and JULES LUND standout not just for the
success they have achieved but for the work they have put in to
getting themselves there.
Well done, Jules !

explores an issue that is the focus of The Rehearsal Room process at the
moment. That is, How do you make your performances
brighter, bolder and more engaging while still being complex and believable.
Room actors report they are making significant progress in moving their
performances towards stronger and more engaging outcomes. Those are the
kind of results that attract attention in the audition room. Although
the main topic of this audio file is The Real Value of Audition
Workshops it also focuses on a significant element that
holds actors back from really excelling.
