WHERE ARE THEY NOW: LARKIN MALLOY (EX-SKY, EDGE OF NIGHT; EX-KYLE, GL; EX-DR. IN WEIRD GLASSES WHO TURNED CARLY AND ROSE INTO OLD WOMEN, ATWT)
After decades working with actors and starring in numerous soap operas such as Edge of Night, Guiding Light, All My Children and Loving, Emmy Award-nominee Larkin Malloy will open his own acting studio, “The Best On-Camera Acting Classes in NYC,” this January with the goal of sharing his years of experience with striving actors who are serious about developing their careers.
Malloy has taught the on-camera acting class at the Weist-Barron School and the Intermediate and Master Acting classes during the inaugural year at Greystone Studios. He was also an on-set acting coach at As The World Turns for seven years. He currently serves on the faculty of The Conservatory at The School for Film and Television.
“The Best On-Camera Acting Classes in NYC” is located at Weist Barron Studios, 35 W. 45Th St, 6th Floor, NYC and will offer classes such as “Excel in On Camera Auditions,” “Master Soap Opera Technique” and “Ace Your Cold Reading”.
“After so many years of watching screen-tests, I have seen good, talented actors sabotage themselves by arriving at auditions unprepared, or having misguided notions of what the director is looking for,” said Malloy. “At our school, we focus on finding the tools necessary for the performer to shine and be seen at their very best. I am extremely enthusiastic about the whole process of helping actors learn to use their talents to their best advantage and develop their skills to the point where casting directors say “Wow, where have you been?”
Malloy has studied with some of the finest teachers in the world, including Wynn Handman's Two Year Master Program, Anatoly Efros at Moscow's Tangaka Theatre (Stanislavsky Method), Ron Daniels of the Royal Shakespeare Company, John Stix (Meisner), Gene Lasko, Gary Armagnac (Strasberg), etc. and is private coach to many rising young stars.
The new studio is equipped with a two-camera / monitor playback so that the performer can experience a real world feel for how their work is seen by others. Since the classes are limited in size, each performer will work and be critiqued in each class.
Malloy’s years of experience as the As The World Turn’s Performance Consultant has given him a unique perspective to see the actors work on camera as the Producer and Director see it, and the ability to successfully develop the actor’s skills. In working with the performer during rehearsals, he knows what will work and what doesn’t before the actor goes before the cameras.
