Collaborating With Actors

Kerry Fox led a practical workshop aimed at directors, producers and writers – though actors were also welcome to come along.

About Kerry


Kerry Fox won international acclaim for her first starring role, in Jane Campion’s An Angel at My Table and then starred in Danny Boyle’s breakout film Shallow Grave. She won the Silver Bear for Best Actress for her performance in Patrice Chéreau’s adaptation of Hanif Kureishi’s Intimacy.

Kerry’s other film credits include Welcome to Sarajevo, Patrick’s Day, Storm, Bright Star, Holding The Man, The Dressmaker and Top End Wedding.

Kerry qualified as a teacher of drama way back in the last century!  She has developed a particular interest and speciality of delivering masterclasses to filmakers (directors, writers and producers) on working with actors - in order to dispel the fears and negative myths that surround the acting experience. She has taught at The BFI London International Film Festival as part of their Think-Shoot-Distribute programme, at the Berlinale, at The Edinburgh International Film Festival, at Bellrock and for Scottish Screen.
