Drama Masterclass by “Royal” Command!
Wednesday 6th March 2013
Royal Shakespeare Company actor Gerard Logan paid Queen Anne’s another visit this week to work with the 12 A Level drama girls in an evening Masterclass. Gerard focused his workshop on his own specialism of voice production and diction and, whilst you may not know his name, you will certainly have heard his voice as he has provided the voice-over for numerous well-known tv commercials. During the Masterclass, Gerard took questions from the girls on all aspects of acting and rehearsal and he had some valuable words of advice for Angelica Hill and Sammy Trotman, both of whom have had re-call auditions to both RADA and LAMDA. After the Masterclass, he told Head of Drama Rhodri Punter that “the girls are an absolute credit to the school”.
Gerard trained at RADA and then went on to work extensively at the Royal Shakespeare Company and the National Theatre. He won the prestigious “best solo performance” prize at last summer’s Edinburgh Festival.
