Testimonials

Casting for 18+ years in film and television is a privilege and great joy. Along with my degrees in theatre and study with terrific mentors, it has also allowed me to share specific knowledge with artists of all ages and experience in a way that allows the actor to uncover an authentic and human response to any role.

I have shared my expertise internationally in Russia, UK, Mexico, as well as throughout the US at Pace University, The Juilliard School, NYU Tisch School of the Arts, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, DePaul University, Loyola-Chicago, Occidental College, Columbia College, University of Arizona, University of Minnesota/The Guthrie, The New School, University of Texas at Austin, Directors Lab West, SAG-AFTRA Foundation, IO West, Camp IOKA-NH, Howard Fine Studio, Private seminars and, of course, with the many talented and successful clients and students I have been humbled to work with, some of whom graciously provided testimonials- THANK YOU!

“Caroline offers a safe, open space where you will feel completely prepared and capable of booking. Her knowledge in tone, script analysis and depth of experience covers everything needed in coaching. When self-taping, she is able to effortlessly choose the best takes and really takes her time making sure I am comfortable. With her guidance I can’t help but be proud of my work and preparation whether for a self-tape or in-room audition. Caroline gives her complete attention and guidance in the right direction while also keeping individualism and originality that any actor would bring to the table. I couldn’t say enough good things about how amazing she is!” Arielle Diaz, Murder In The First

“Coaching with Caroline has been a dream come true! She has challenged me to reach new levels of scene development, adding more layers and depth to my characters. Caroline has also given me invaluable advice on how to carry myself in an audition room and general meetings. She has helped me with everything around my audition from wardrobe to slating to talking points and so much more. She has been like a cheerleader on my side, helping me build a strong career while reminding me to stay true and authentic to myself. Whether coaching on-line or in-person, Caroline is patient, flexible and has always makes time for me even for a last minute audition.” Charlotte McKee, Shades of Blue

“DO NOT pass up working with Caroline if you have the opportunity! My very first coaching session with her for a self-tape audition resulted in my booking a great role opposite Paul Giamatti and William Hurt. Caroline helps you find the truth and simplicity of the material while, simultaneously, opening you to subtle textures in performance. She is a gem!”  Steve Tom, Funny or Die Presents…, Dumb and Dumber To

“Caroline Liem’s class is a buffet for actors. Not only are you working your butt off in front of the camera, but you also talk about the business side and all the ingredients that will help you become a successful actor. Caroline takes the time to work with you in front of the camera to help you perfect that audition and help you make those unique choices that no other actor is going to make. I could sit here and type 10 pages of why her class is awesome but you need to find out for yourself. You will not regret it.” Brandon Morales, American Crime Story, Scandal

“If you are looking for growth, self discovery and success within acting I recommend learning from the best and that is exactly who Caroline Liem is. I’ve been training with Caroline for three years now and not only has she prepared me for anything and everything she has brought out a confident side in me I didn’t know I had. I wouldn’t be where I’m at without this amazing lady. Caroline I love you and couldn’t feel more blessed to have you as my acting coach.” T’L Tario, 16
