Master Scene Study w/Howard Fine


Howard Fine is an award winning Hollywood acting teacher and author known for his award winning actor training. Howard was named Best Acting Teacher in Los Angeles in a one of a kind poll of its readers, by Backstage Magazine. He currently coaches actors working at the highest levels of the industry, and teaches at both his studios in L.A. & Australia, and around the world.


Howard has taught some of the biggest names in Hollywood including Will Smith, Gal Gadot, Bradley Cooper, Jared Leto, Salma Hayek, Jennifer Connelly, Daveed Diggs, The Rock, Chris Pine, Michelle Williams, Kerry Washington, Michael Chiklis, Jim Belushi, Vanessa Hudgens, Austin Butler, and many more…


Actor Chris Pine, who has starred in such films as Star Trek, Wonder Woman and A Wrinkle in Time, says “When I first met Howard he told me his job was to make the actor a self sufficient artist. His great skill is the joy he takes in watching you discover, with the tools he provides, the essence of a character. He loves actors, he loves the process and he is all about the work.”


Howard directed Michael Chiklis on Broadway in Defending the Caveman and Elizabeth Berkley Lauren, Rachel Dratch and Alley Sheedy in David Linday Abaire’s That Other Person as part of the Best of the 24 Hour Plays Off Broadway.


In addition to training and directing actors, Howard has also been contracted by the FBI to train undercover agents in the global war on terror. In his book, American Radical: Inside the World of an Undercover Muslim FBI Agent, the author Tamer El Noury states that the training he received from Howard Fine “saved my life as much as any training I got from the FBI.” These agents’ very lives depend on being believable in their undercover roles and the FBI turned to Howard Fine for his expertise.


Howard has been teaching and training actors for over 30 years at his studio, The Howard Fine Acting Studio, in Hollywood, California and at the sister school located in Melbourne Australia. His book, Fine on Acting, continues to be a best seller on Amazon and is widely considered to be a seminal book on the craft of acting.
