LAMDA offer and final thoughts

Hello 🙂

So a few of you readers have already seen my LAMDA final round audition blog but if you haven’t – I found out about 3 days ago that I got in! By some miracle I’ve managed to persuade them to give me a place. I could not be happier!!!

Looking back when I first started Aspiring Actress I certainly did not expect all the love that has come my way through my ups and downs of this audition process. You guys have been SO amazing and every time I finished an audition I couldn’t wait to tell you all about it!! It has brought me so much happiness and I wanted to say thank you to the whole WordPress fambo!! I remember when I was auditioning for the first time and I found so much comfort in reading other people’s experiences on the internet, so I’m so glad I decided to start writing too! A few people have commented/messaged me and said that my blog really helped them to know what’s coming up for them and as I’ve written about 7 drama schools and their recalls it will hopefully help auditonees in the future too ❤ I haven’t decided yet but I may be blogging about my time at LAMDA but we shall have to wait and see. That felt so weird typing that – ‘my time at LAMDA.’ GAH.

Finally, I would just like to add to anyone reading this who didn’t get that recall or didn’t get that place – DON’T GIVE UP! Keep knocking on that door, improving yourself and they will open it when they see you are ready. Don’t ever take no for an answer because (I’m sounding so cheesy right now I know but I don’t care bare with me) you can achieve anything you want to when you focus your mind. I honestly think good actors are good people, and good things come to good people. Hang on in there. As I heard from a wonderful man once – ‘see you at the top.’

    Many congratulations! I first came across your blog on TSR, where I post fairly regularly. My wife and I attend LAMDA (and RADA) public performances by final-year students, so I hope to see you in the Linbury Studio in 2018/19! In last year’s graduating BA Acting class we saw Joseph Quinn and Callum Woodhouse, who have had TV success this year, as well as Josef Davies (part of the award-winning Hangmen). Always keep striving to be the best!

      Hello Richard! Thank you so much for your encouragement and kind words 🙂 I’m so excited to start my training in a great school with such wonderful alumni! And I hope in 3 years I live up to the standard of all the graduating actors you have seen perform! I’ll look out for your name in the student room!

      Thank you again,

    Make sure you don’t think “I’ve made it into Lamda therefore I’ve cracked it”. Most of your graduating cohort won’t do as well as those I’ve mentioned by a long way. The die is largely cast by the start of your third year so you can’t afford to relax at all. As an example, the first Lamda play we saw was Henry IV, Part I. Josef Davies was Falstaff, Joseph Quinn was Hal and Callum Woodhouse was Hotspur – the three best parts in the play. The staff knew then who was best and cast accordingly.
