International Actors

Sydney Sweeney - Euphoria
“Sweeney revealed that she grew up with The Power of the Dog actor, Kodi Smit-McPhee. The pair lived in the same apartment complex in Los Angeles and became fast friends. Their friendship put Sweeney in close proximity with Smith-McPhee’s father, Andy McPhee. And McPhee gave Sweeney some career-changing advice… told me that I should separate myself as much as I can from the characters I play, because sometimes you can easily get lost in the character”

Adelaide Actors & Creatives

Kyle Davison

Budding Writer/Director - Locally renowned Field Recorder and Sound Designer – Current 4-week intensive

“Andy McPhee's 4 week intensive has re-ignited a fire within me to constantly look to create and do so without restriction and/or concern about being ‘wrong’. The freedom that comes from this experience is creatively liberating.

I've also used the term "a good kick in the arse"


Gail Morrison


“Andy’s intensive course allowed me to let loose my creative side that I had kept pushed down. He allowed me to express myself without fear or favour which I hadn’t really done before. He pushed me to study more languages which I am still really enjoying. He taught me things about myself that I will put into practice and I believe will really help me as an actor. The writing side of the course was cathartic; I was able to put down thoughts that I had and they created stories which were more entertaining than I thought they would be. He allows you the freedom to be yourself and to have the confidence to do what you love. I also learnt how to use new technology I didn't even know about, or how it could be utilised for my acting, and it showed me that I really can do it if I try, and trust in myself"


David John Clark

Actor & Host Of The Late Bloomer Actor podcast

“I came into Andy’s course looking for something different to all courses I’ve done; something to get outside of the mainstream audition process. And I certainly got that. Andy has a way of pushing you outside of your comfort zone; at first doing tasks that you don’t always know how they will improve you as an actor, and then BAM! All of a sudden it just takes hold and makes sense, and suddenly you deliver a scene in a fresh way. Certainly, looking forward to my next real audition now"


Samantha Hughes


“In the final week with Andy, I was fortunate to have two auditions that I didn’t overthink, for once! I had a new trust & confidence in my creativity, and I just smashed them!

Andy showed me how significant just 5 minutes a day doing something creative (or not!) can be and everyone has five minutes in their day"
