“Anna explains script analysis in such detail, and she makes it fun. It's eye-opening, and I'm excited to work on telling the story now versus trying to get it right. Live the life and tell the story, story, story! Thank you for sharing your knowledge, Anna! ”Yvonne Valadez, Actor

“Anna is the best coach for self tapes I’ve ever worked with. As an actress herself, she brings all she has to the session. She offers up her instincts with so much generosity and conviction that it really helps take you where you need to go. I’ve always felt so proud of the work we’ve done together and I feel like I continue to learn so much from her. She is truly the best.”Dina Shihabi, Actor

“Anna LaMadrid is hands down the best coach I have ever worked/taped with. She’s not only one of my most favorite comedic actresses, she has a unique understanding of how to actually direct comedy. She just gets it. But most importantly, she is a master at breaking down and then emphasizing character in the sometimes narrow context of a single scene. A seemingly simple moment of depth that will undoubtedly take you that extra mile with casting. I trust her implicitly. Work with Anna! You will book!”Christine Woods, Actor
