"Milne Acting Studio acting classes and coaching have taught me how to deeply connect with my past experiences to bring forth such true emotions to any present roles. Brad Milne has taught me how to really connect and ground myself and inevitably put me in such a mindset that I thought I could never achieve. His coaching and mentorship has taught me how being grounded with myself and my past experiences and emotions, ultimately being vulnerable and connected, can elicit the most powerful performances. I highly recommend everyone - beginner or professional - to really go through Brad’s coaching because they are beyond eye opening. Thank you Brad!" Khang Ha, Canadian Actor.

"I've been taking online Film Acting classes with Milne Studio for months now and I have to say it's been one of the best experiences for me in terms of developing as a professional actress. Getting to work on my craft every week in a safe, constructive, creative environment has helped me to grow so so much.
Additionally, getting the prep for auditions and chatting one on one about applying to agencies - how to put my best foot forward and create a demo reel that really showcases the best of myself - it has been so helpful. You're not just talking to coaches at Milne Acting School Toronto. You're talking to industry professionals, you're networking with other training actors and sharing experiences, and you're becoming a part of a community that genuinely cares about what happens to you.

I joined Brad's Toronto acting classes with a 4 class pack. But right after my first acting class, I upgraded it to a 8 class pack because I loved it so much! He is not only an amazing teacher but one of the best human beings I have met. He is considerate, flexible and a remarkable actor. I had zero acting experience when I joined his classes but he never made me feel like I was a beginner. He creates a positive environment in each of his classes which not only makes you comfortable but builds your confidence in a way you had never felt before! He is one of a kind! I will definitely be joining back after my vacation! Also, he does summer draws for class packs and I just won a 6 pack class with him! I couldn't have been happier. If you want to learn the "act" in "acting", Milne studios is the place you would wanna go to.” Tanvi Chandna, Toronto Actress
"I'd been looking for extra acting training for my career and I ran into their actors workshop last January. Best investment ever! Brad and the other acting instructors are very passionate I have no doubt that this is a great school to take classes at. BRAVO!" Henrique Santsper, Toronto Actor.
“Not only has Brad helped me to lay down an acting foundation and further develop my skills with his innovative acting techniques and array of experience, he has made it his mission to help me navigate through the industry. Brad and Alana go above and beyond the regular involvement of an acting school...they make it their goal to help you chase yours!" Dylan Moscovitch, Olympic Silver Medalist Figure Skater | Canadian Actor
“After studying acting in LA and Toronto I have FINALLY found an acting coach I can relate to!! Brads Toronto acting classes are simply amazing he has such a way of coaching that you just get it!!! I noticed how he looks at all his students differently and takes the best approach to help them further their career. If you are an actor either just starting or well advanced in your career I STRONGLY recommend taking one of his classes and seeing for yourself.” Anthony Caputo, Toronto Actor
Toronto Acting Coach, Brad Milne gets you, as an actor, to the core of a character in a flash and has given me the courage and confidence to venture into moulding my own interpretation of a character. This is acting coaching on an other level." ~ Bryan Ratushniak, Canadian Producer / Actor
So as a former Partner of major Bay Street Consulting Firms, I thought that I had seen all there was to see in business. Then I walked into the Milne Toronto Acting Studio. An outstanding blend of talent development, technical training of the acting art form, the exploration of the inner self to link character study and development, and the application of a business mindset to launch an acting career. Because let's face it - we don't just want to say we are actors, we want to be able to say we are "working actors". Brad is able to connect all of these requirements into a business model like few businesses I have seen elsewhere. For the student this means learning the craft, getting to know yourself a little better, and establishing a business plan to get there. Expect to be pushed to reach your highest and becoming an actor in the process!” Omar Tucci, Toronto Actor
"“Before taking classes with Toronto acting coach Brad Milne, I found breaking down scripts to be rather difficult. I worried too much about what the director would be looking for rather than what I had to offer. It made auditioning pretty nerve racking. Brad has taught me how to use myself as a basis for breaking down scripts and approaching lines. His acting method has made a difference in how I now approach: script breakdown, memorization of lines, emotions, and has even lessened the nervousness I feel when auditioning. Actually just before I wrote this I just came out of an audition where the director told me that I definitely have a part in the project. I’m also going to be signing up for more classes with Brad.” Colin Brady, Toronto Actor
"Brad Milne is my dad. Some may say I’m biased, however there is nothing but complete transparent honesty in this review. Attending his acting classes, whether it be level one, two or three, one witnesses pure magic happening each and every night. It’s an unparalleled experience. Night after night I watch actors transform through his coaching. He has done the same for me. I am so much more in touch with myself, my own emotions, triggers, actions and my ability to read people than I ever thought possible. He’s extremely dedicated and cares deeply about the success of each of the actors that he coaches. I am immensely proud to be a part of Milne Studio and grateful for my coach- whom I truly believe to be supreme at what he does in every sense." Alana Milne, Canadian & American Actress
“I have been to different Toronto acting studios and felt like all I learned was the technicalities of camera work where they say don’t move during a close up no coaching on how to act… seriously, you are thrown in with a scene and don’t have any idea what to do in the first class besides learning lines and then they tell you vaguely what to do for the other classes… What is wonderful about Brad’s actors class is that he is completely involved in making you a better actor, but by bringing out a better version of yourself to bring to the camera. I am not someone who cries easily in front of others, and I have always struggles with dramatic scenes. In the second class, he saw through me and helped me bring out so much emotion I was blown away that I could open up so much. He helps you to let go and get into it and it makes you perform way better than ever before. I am definitely continuing to study with him and can’t wait to see my improvement when I rewatch my videos in a few months time (because yes, he sends you your work!) Thanks Brad!” Amy Tremblay, Toronto Actress
“I have tried many Toronto acting studios. It was hard to find a great place to study and work on the craft. However, Milne studio has constantly been a supportive, encouraging and technically challenging class. At Milne studio meticulous effort and care is put into every student and you never leave feeling like just a number. I absolutely highly recommend Milne Studio. For a place to nurture your craft in a positive and safe space. ~ Julia Samson, Toronto Actress
“I have been taking acting classes in Toronto with Milne studios for about two months now and I have nothing but great things to say about them. I started out in level one which was a great place for me to start even with theatre and bit of film experience you need to make sure you have that strong foundation of training for film. Brad does a really great job at creating a super supportive and comfortable atmosphere. He has pushed me and really helped me find ways that work for me to connect to the work whether that is through imagination or drawing from more personal experience. He has helped me connect my training with theatre to film as well. I always thought film was completely different from theatre when in reality preparing for film is quite similar to preparing for theatre. So I have been able to connect some the exercises and tricks I do with theatre to on camera as well. I am already feeling a lot more comfortable in front of the camera and the training at Milne studios has sparked my passion for acting on screen even more than I thought. I am looking forward to continuing my work with them and am grateful for the hard work and effort Brad puts in with each and everyone of his students. You can tell he is truly passionate about his work and wants everyone to succeed.” Ceilidh Morrison, Toronto Actress
"Milne Acting Studio Toronto throws light on how to explore and connect to your inner self. I have not experienced an acting school where I have been so in touch with my character. Brad welcomed me with open arms to the studio. His generosity, patience and experience makes his studio essential for any student at any level wanting to grow their acting skills. I look forward to continuing classes in Jan!” Leah Zelkas, Australian Actress
“Milne Acting Studios is by far one of the best in acting studios in Toronto. The environment is very welcoming and Brad really cares for each individual actor as they progress in their work and will help you reach your career goals. When I started working with Brad in May I was introduced to PERGE which really helped a lot in my work and we did a variety of exercises that helped us prepare. I also decided to join the 48 hour acting bootcamp where I was able to learn so much more, create a powerful demo reel scene, and connect with other actors. It was a really pleasant experience.” Kent Vega Barillas, Toronto Actor
“Brad has a unique ability that allows you to look back at a life experience, label the emotion, and then bring that same emotion into the scene. Incredibly effective, not to mention therapeutic! You're performance, coaching, and feedback, are all captured on 4k cameras and are available to view by the time you arrive home from class. Fantastic Toronto acting teacher and service.” Damien Stark, Toronto Actor
“As someone who is completely new to acting, I am glad I chose Milne Acting Studio Toronto to introduce me to the art and the industry. I have learned so much in such a short amount of time. Brad is so hands on and involved with each student, you can truly sense his passion while he’s coaching you and it makes the experience incredibly enriching. That being said, I am eager to advance to higher level classes at Milne because Brad has inspired me to pursue acting in a more serious way than I have ever imagined. Thank you Brad for your tremendously valuable guidance!” Emila Shivrani, Toronto Actress
I can’t say enough good things about Milne Acting Studio Toronto. Brad is a passionate, insightful acting teacher and coach. He takes his time with all of his students and we all benefit from his wealth of knowledge and experience. The exercises he teaches to help you connect with your character and scene are incredibly effective. Fantastic learning environment! Highly recommend! Karen Newlove, Canadian Actress
“Milne Studio was the best decision I've made in a long time.
As a complete newcomer to this industry with zero experience & high hopes, I was thrilled to find that Brad Milne has created an environment where actors of all ages & backgrounds can come explore their creativity in a safe, welcoming, motivating & inspiring space. It is a no-judgment zone where you can have fun, experiment, step out of your shell and simply create and see what you're capable of. Brad teaches you how to connect with your character and how to understand the dynamics of acting. He gives each student 1-on-1 attention & guidance and truly cares about the art of acting and those under his wing.
The fact that he also sends you your taped session after each class is a MAJOR bonus and Brad goes out of his way to ensure that you receive the best possible learning experience with him, regardless of what your skill level is or your reason for being there. If you're considering joining Milne Studio, just DO it! You won't be disappointed. It is absolutely wonderful and I can't wait to get back in the new year and continue working with Brad!” Chantelle Boyal, Toronto Actress
“The best self-tape in Toronto, bar none! Compelling, high-definition, showing the actor at their very best! I would send my actors nowhere else ... except when Brad is out of town” Kate Kellner, TGA.
“I’ve been to other acting coaches and acting classes before, it always felt like I was there because of the money I paid and was given a short amount of time to perform and then that was it. When I first went to Brad, I was skeptical, but decided to have an open mind. The first class was to get back into the swing of things and figure out where I was emotionally, physically and spiritually. During the second class, something happened that didn’t happen before with other coaches, I cried. I let it out, it wasn’t too overwhelming and I just accepted it through Brads guidance. He then showed how I can control it and the following acting classes showed my best work I’ve ever done. Brad has helped me gain a confidence in front of the camera that I never had before and told me it’s okay to be vulnerable. Can’t wait to see what is more to come and hope everyone reading this comment who hasn’t taken a class yet, to give it a try… and who knows maybe lightning will strike like it did for me.” Christopher Tanych, Toronto Actor
“ Brad’s acting classes helped me prepare for several auditions that I eventually booked! His detailed breakdown of script and PERGE(Brad’s method), which I received upon my first class are extremely detailed and helpful. They have made me make better choices as an actor and no doubt have helped me land jobs. Thanks Brad for pushing your actors and I look forward to more classes with you in the future!” Tylan Essery, Toronto Actor
“Milne Acting Studio Toronto is definitely ranked and rated as one of the best acting schools in Toronto because Brad is a well-versed working actor and acting coach who has both loaded knowledge and experience in the industry. My favourite day is the day that I get to attend his class because he makes the acting classes fun and makes you feel welcomed and engaged. Somehow I feel right at home! His method and techniques are one of a kind and he constantly guides and directs his students to get to the place where they need to be: skill-wise and character-wise. I thoroughly enjoy every minute of class and I always leave feeling exhilarated, more improved, and more confident with the craft. I highly recommend this Toronto acting studio! You don’t have to take my word for it. One class is all you need to know for yourself and you wont want to go anywhere else!” Tami De La Cruz, Toronto Actress
“I’ve been in Toronto for just 1.5 months and I’m so happy to have Brad’s Toronto studio for acting classes. I could not image my time there without Brad’s weekly classes. He is looking for inspiring and passionate person as well as excellent teacher who takes time for each of his students individually. His coaching taught not only the fundamentals of camera acting and character development but also the importance of dedication and hard work. On the top of that he improved my self-confidence, for which I am highly grateful. Thank you so much Brad! I’m happy to have you as a teacher and I’m looking forward to seeing you again. PS: The 48 hour Acting Bootcamp is a must for everyone looking for an intense and very instructive acting experience!” Gabi Weissenberg, German Actress
“I am very thankful that I have been taking Brad’s Toronto acting classes. Brad is a very passionate and an interactive acting teacher and as a student of acting that is what I hope to have in a coach. The exercises he does is one of my favourite things about the class. Going to classes, I am always inspired and motivated by Brad and the other students and reminded of my goal.” Lisa Tran, Toronto Actress
“Milne Studio is a great learning establishment from the most beginner actors to veterans. The community and vibe created at each class keeps climbing upwards. Both Brad & his team are very experienced, well-connected, and capable of teaching anyone. Thankful to have found a home where I can hone my acting skills.” Ilkay Sky, Canadian Actor

“I started classes at Milne Studios this year. After signing up for Brad's Toronto acting classes, acting has quickly progressed from a curiosity to a variety of opportunities for me. It was the best decision I made this year. The positive environment of this studio has helped me grow as an individual and an actor. I look forward to more growth with the studio.” Kaylan Jones, Toronto Actress
“I had the honour of meeting Brad at his Acting Bootcamp at Milne Studios recently. WOW! What an amazing, kind, and passionate acting coach!

“I’ve learned so much in such a short amount of time. Brad cares so much about his acting students and I’ve become a better actor because of him! Definitely take classes at this acting studio! You won’t regret it.” Sara Douglas, Toronto Actress
“Brad is an unbelievable teacher, and this is an incredible Toronto acting school to learn! I have nothing but amazing things to say about Milne Acting Studios! I will be an acting student for life! Highly recommend!” Rich Canavan, Toronto Actor

“Brad is a diligent and determined actor and acting coach who has used his own experiences and training to break down the fundamentals of acting into easy to digest bite size pieces. He does this all with a wonderful smile on his face and joke or two up his sleeve.” Steven Trevor, Toronto Actor
“Brad Milne is a wonderful actors coach ! I have spent many hours at Milne Studios, Toronto acting classes, and plan on spending many more.” Amanda Kohkhar, Toronto Actress
“I just completed Brad’s 48 Hour Acting Bootcamp. It was a tremendous experience with a great group of people and an excellent instructor. Brad reached down inside of me and drew out a performance that I never would have believed I could deliver. He did the same with the others in the group. I highly recommend the Bootcamp.” Jack Langhorn, Toronto Actor
“Brad is an incredibly passionate and inspiring teacher. He works very hard for those willing to do the same. I have seen new students and seasoned actors thrive here. For anyone looking for classes you must at the very least do the 24-hour bootcamp. Mirielle Milne, Toronto Actress (no relation)
“Brad Milne’s acting workshops and private coaching was recommended to me and I am pleased to make the same recommendation to any actor at any level that wishes to pursue their craft. Thank you Brad for an incredible 48 hours of Boot Camp. I’ll be back!” Paul Massey, Toronto Actor
“Signed up for the boot camp and it was an absolute excellent experience. Brad Milne gets you to dive into your role no matter how timid you are and guides you to be a better actor. He gives great acting advice and actors direction. I definitely picked up a lot of new skills from him. I 100% recommend his classes.
Also, he has great hair :)” Angeli Ang, Toronto Actress
“Brad really takes his time with each individual actor to ensure that they immerse into the characters shoes truthfully. He really opens your mind and eyes to the subtext and story behind the script. I’m truly grateful and thankful to have found such a great coach that is honest and cares about you being a well rounded actor who is proud of their work.” Cassandra Gruia, Toronto Actress
“From my first class about a year ago at Milne Acting Studios until now, its crazy how much I grew as an actor! He has allowed me to take more risks, go out of my comfort zone and create honest, real, and colourful characters! He is very passionate with his students and puts a lot of effort in helping them make deep connections with their characters and stories. I have really learned a lot about my self from his classes and have grown to love this beautiful art. Working with Brad, I really have realized how every moment matters in a scene, and I also have come to a better understanding of how to find the humanity in every character I play.
He has given me really good advice on auditioning and different areas of acting which has really come in handy. Brad creates a very fun, creative and comfortable environment at his studio and I learn something new every class! Brad took his time with me and really helped me to grow my skill set and stretch my range as an actor. Not only has he helped me become a better actor, but he has also help start my career with creating my first demo reel and helping me to find my first agent! Brad really helps you in all aspects of acting, from technique to your career. Thanks for everything Brad!!!” Rio Tarditti, Toronto Actor
“Milne Studio Classes and 48 Hr Bootcamp: Brad is an inspiring acting teacher. I love how he passionately challenges and supports his students; this fact alone won my attention. My background as a coach/counsellor, and my own personal approach, gives me an awareness of how much energy, care and effort it takes. Most people simply wouldn’t do it to the extent that Brad does – he doesn’t give up on his students! It takes courage and leadership to inspire others to believe in themselves.
What I find most impressive in his teaching is that he continues to be a student on an ongoing basis, constantly adding value to others. In addition, his refined intuition helps him to keenly tune into his students’ work process making his individual attention, in my humble opinion, unmatched. I highly recommend him as an acting coach and definitely will continue to learn more from him. Elaine Ma, Toronto Actress, Certified Life Coach and Counsellor
“So proud of my demo reel! Huge thank you to my acting coach the incredible Brad Milne as well as the amazingly talented Kearsten Johansson! If you are looking for an acting coach and a supportive environment to grow as an actor you need to check out Milne Studios. I have come a long way thanks to everyone there and my journey is just beginning!” Kennedy Morgan, Toronto Actress
ldquo;Working with Brad helped me find the humanity in acting by putting myself in the skin of the character. I was able to better understand the concept of character development and also find my true potential as an artist. Brad really looks after all his students and will work with each individual to develop the skills necessary to succeed in this business.” Dwight Harrison, Toronto Actor
“I started working with Brad about a month ago and before then I had taken a couple of acting classes, but my experience with Brad has been completely different from any other. He really cares about his students, he helps break down scripts in a way I have never been taught before and it makes such a huge difference. I have had the chance to work privately with him 3 times and those three times have been a new experience because I walk out of the studio amazed at what I did and I had no idea that I could do. I will continue to work with Brad and will recommend him to any actor who really wants to learn the craft.” Yarine Pernia, Toronto Actress
“I had the privilege to work with Brad Milne for about eight months, Brad is extremely committed to help you achieve your goals, he genuinely cares and really puts in all his effort. He makes every moment enjoyable. He coached and prepped me for a leading role in a movie and before then I had no experience in acting, other than the odd school play. After only a few months of his amazing coaching I got a call confirming I had the role.
He really broke down my character and I felt fully prepared once shooting started. I will continue to work with Brad in the future and I hope other actors and actresses will have the privilege to work with Brad and get to experience his amazing knowledge of the art. His classes are truly something special. I can never say thank you enough! All the best Brad, Michaela.” Michaela du Toit / Toronto Actress, Ice Girls Star
“Brad Milne’s classes have been an immeasurable boon to my acting career, and my life. I was quite skeptical about his method when I first started taking lessons with him; and despite the fact that I found them to be refreshingly relaxed and enjoyable, I only took a few lessons before stopping for a few months, and, in fact, questioning whether or not I wanted to continue acting at all. It was only when I finally decided to start taking some more classes with him that I came to grasp the full depth and power of his method. I learned how acting can be a truly self-expressive, and even philosophical, art form. It completely rekindled my love of the art.
In addition to the effectiveness of the method, Brad is himself an incredibly supportive coach and teacher, always going out of his way to further the career of his students, and very obviously motivated purely by the love of acting, and of passing on that love to others. It was he who introduced me to my agent, and through his tireless efforts to make me a better actress that I just recently booked a principal role in my first ACTRA feature film (The Void). I can’t recommend his studio highly enough.” Grace Munro / Toronto Actress
“I started working with Brad at Milne Acting Studios November 2015 and in just a few short months later my acting career has improved quite drastically. At the time currently seeking representation, Brad was able to have my work reviewed by several agents in Toronto until I met my current agent who I am thrilled and extremely proud to be represented by.
This makes it clear he goes above and beyond to help his students not only sharpen their acting skills in class but also lend his experience and industry connections to assist with career development. In the classroom Brad creates a trusting, comfortable environment to explore and create intricate characters with the freedom to go outside your comfort zone and succeed or fail with confidence and grace. He takes his time working with each student at their current level of capabilities to help them grow and stretch their playing range and skill sets.
I’ve also had the opportunity to have private coaching and self-tape work done at Milne Studios which I’m happy to say has led to booking parts! His self-tapes can best be described as mini-movies. With his fully equipped studio, lighting & sound gear, the tapes come out looking and sounding as though you shot a scene from the film you’re submitting to. This creates a self-tape that helps the actor stand out and make a bold statement when you can’t be in the room with the casting directors to wow them with your obvious wit and charm, haha. I’ve seen actors do some of their strongest and most compelling work inside Milne Acting Studios.” Kearsten Johansson, Toronto Actress
“Brad has helped my daughter Michaela, so much. ( she had no background in acting ) They worked for a few months and the progress was remarkable. He prepped her for a leading role in movie called Ice Girls, and within 7 months she was accepted for the role [$2 million + ACTRA Feature, Ice Girls]. Brad shows a real interest for his student’s success and give everything of himself and more! When working with his students, he is extremely committed. He breaks down the work completely to give his students a full understanding. Brad is a remarkable and kind person, my daughter enjoyed every second of his lessons and we look forward to continue working with him in the future! From the bottom of my heart, thank you so so much Brad! – Ina.” Ina du Toit
“Having mainly theatre training, I stepped into Milne Studios primarily looking to explore acting for film. I could not have chosen a better acting studio to begin my training as Brad is clearly very passionate about passing on his experience and knowledge of the art to his pupils. Brad supportively pushes his students to go beyond their limits, and for that I thank him.
His classes have gone way beyond my expectations and have not only allowed me to gain self confidence in front of the camera, but have reignited my passion for the art. I can honestly say that I am proud of the progress I have made in his class with his guidance and expertise. I have much respect for Brad’s teaching style and must say he truly takes the time to get to know his students individual processes and works support everyone’s specific needs. Brad was an amazing acting coach and his classes were an unforgettable experience! Thank you Brad!” Ameera Siddiqui, Toronto Actress
“I can’t praise for Brad enough and his teachings and techniques. As a professional working in this business for 27 years, in Mexico as well as the US, I’m always looking for improvement. But after so many years working in Radio, Voice Dubbing, TV and commercials, on and off camera, I felt as if something was missing, a sensitivity that I had when I started in theater back in 1982, and I was looking for a way to retrieve that, but I couldn’t. Now, it is said that when the student is ready, the Master appears. And boy did he appear!
With Brad I have been able to reach deep down into my soul and find the essence that made me fall in love with acting and become an actor when I was very young, it was always there, but I needed someone with his amazing talent and expertise to see it and help me reach it and go places within myself I couldn’t have imagined. Brad, I can´t thank you enough buddy for helping me rediscover my “old self” and bring it back, a bit dusted and rusty but ready to learn and improve as it was 30 years ago. Thank you so much for reminding me that, in the end, deep inside, we are still kids who love to play pretend…even if we need to get a bit serious from time to time.” Alejandro Vargas Lugo, Actor, Voice Over Artist
“Brad is an energetic and insightful acting coach who is extremely challenging, yet supportive. Through an impressive array of techniques and exercises, he helps us meld the physical and the cerebral, so each actor can find his or her core and fearlessly embrace any role, with brio and authenticity.” June Griffin García – U.S. Actress
“I would highly recommend training your acting chops with Brad Milne. He is an honest, humble, hard-charging and experienced actor with the gift of teaching by leading from the front.” David Robbins, U.S. Actor with A&M Talent House
“Brad Milne’s passion for the art of acting makes him one of the most outstanding acting coaches in Texas! I heartily recommend his classes and feel we are most fortunate to have an acting coach of his caliber!” Diana Sneckner, Avant Agency
“Brad Milne is one of the most dynamic teachers I’ve seen in my twenty years in the business”
Priscilla Condra, Condra Artista Agency
“Had the most amazing and fun time in Brad Milne 48 hour acting boot camp. Made 7 new friends, and learned so much about myself as an actor, artist, and human being I truly never knew was inside me. Now bring on an audition so I can get in front of a camera and show ya’ll what I discovered…” Willie Bowen – 48 Hour Acting Bootcamp
I took Brad’s 48 hour Acting boot camp a few weeks ago and I highly recommend it. The preparation, coaching, direction, and shooting of a monologue helped me book the lead roll on a pilot. Brad takes actors to places they had no idea they could reach. Well done! I especially recommend his training for actors who take their careers seriously.” David Flannigan, U.S. Actor.
“Brad understands that no one actor is the same, consistently finding inventive ways to adapt his approach to something that works and makes sense to you, the individual. Not only that, but he never shy’s away at the opportunity to help his students’ careers beyond the page! Overall great guy and mentor, it’s always a pleasure working with Brad!” Marco Sasso – Private Coaching / Ongoing Acting Intensive – Toronto
“If you’re looking for a great family oriented studio to work on your craft, without a doubt Id suggest Milne Studio. Having graduated from university with a civil law degree, I lack knowledge and experience in the industry, contrarily I have always had a high level of admiration for actors throughout my entire life (as cliche as that sounds) with aspirations to become one.
Of course for many taking a leap of faith in this difficult and intricate industry, takes a lot of courage, but more than courage, right guidance. Brad has taken interest in me becoming an actor before I even took the steps necessary. In little time he has been able to help me develop truthfulness, spontaneity from moment to moment, and understanding the script in perspectives I couldn’t possibly fathom. From preparation to the final delivery, Brad spends time (99% of the time going over class time) on each individual actor to ensure development and growth.
Additionally, he’s very understanding of the career path we have chosen and understands that budgeting is excruciatingly difficult thus, making classes affordable as well as simple to pay for. Every actor must find their own coach that they can learn and grow with until they move on. Brad has been extraordinarily insightful, captivating and pushy (when need be) to help me better myself daily. If you’re willing to put in the work, he’s willing to go the extra mile. Come audit check it out for yourself! (I don’t mean to sound like an advertisement) see you soon!” Dana Abraham / Ongoing Acting Intensive – Toronto
“Brad thank you for your energetic style challenging us to honour the script, to find the truth in every scene, provoking us to make strong choices, to take risks and huge leaps of faith. To feel all the dark things in life that we most times deny, to unlock our subconscious, get out of our head and step into our heart. To break those personal glass walls, to cry and become more vulnerable, to listen to each other, their story, a compassionate insight into the human experience. To confront our fears and hurl ourselves wholeheartedly into the scene which translated into empowered work. You are an incredibly passionate, enthusiastic and focused Coach and we are grateful for your dedication. Milne Acting Studio is a nurturing place for Actors to grow in their craft. Cheers!!!” Coral Johnson – 48 Hour Acting Bootcamp & Classes
“Brad recently worked with my daughter for a very important call –back she had for a large role in a film. Brad helped her to transform the lines on the page into words the character would have reason to express. He made her feel comfortable with a difficult scene and with her confidence in herself and with the message the film portrays. As a parent I was relieved to actually see her work and know that she was ready to go into the audition with confidence, not only knowing her lines but also knowing her character. We are happy to say she booked the role and can’t wait for the journey it will take us on now. Thank you Brad for taking the time to work with us on this project! Shawn Jackett, Toronto Talent Agent
“Brad was wonderful to work with! He made me feel comfortable and confident during my self test and was completely focused on being present for our work together. He made sure the lighting and sound were perfect, and was a great, generous reader too. My agent and I felt confident sending the US Pilot self test to LA.” Silvina D’Alessandro, Toronto Actress
“I’ve had the pleasure of participating in Brad’s Ongoing Actor Intensives as well as the 48-hour Acting Bootcamp and would highly recommend both! Brad’s wonderful PERGE technique provides a thoughtful method to deconstruct and interpret the material. He then combines bodywork/character improv/scene study to help you find a unique and honest voice/POV for that character. It’s an amazing journey and I am grateful to have found such an inspiring and caring coach in Brad!” Aliya Kanani, Toronto Actress
“I am extremely fortunate to have had the opportunity to train with Brad Milne, hw is someone who is completely invested in the development and progression of his students. I have had the privilege of training with various instructors in Toronto, but I can most certainly say that I consider Brad the best instructor in the city. He has a technique that is unique and one that allows for the creation of rich characters. PERGE is a technique that simplifies the process of creating a character and allow’s the actors to really narrow down their focus points, while eliminating all the internal noise through the use of breathing and energy exercises. I would recommend Brad’s class to every actor who has the desire of starting an acting career and of continuously growing as an actor. It’s the best training you’ll find in the city.” Hannad Afzal, Toronto Actor
“I think Brad’s acting technique is absolutely brilliant. What I experienced in the last class I had never before. My goal is to have acting as a lifestyle. Not just a hobby or practice but to have it present every day. It’s become my perception of my universe and I want to be present, active listening with goals, relationships 24/7. With this being said, I feel Brad’s teachings are getting me there. The class gave me a high without drinking or drugs. It was the first time I really felt comfortable being extremely uncomfortable living truthfully under imaginary circumstances.” Jenna Sedran, Toronto Actress
“As an aspiring actor it is very important to be able to connect with your coach and feel that his or her best interest is in your success, comfort and accomplishment. Before meeting Brad I had worked with various coaches, but something was always missing, such passion or the willingness to understand my boundaries and pushing me to break them. I have found other people to put the money above everything rather than the needs of the students. Working with Brad helped me bring out emotions that I really was convinced did not exist in me. Through this I was able to break not only personal, but professional barriers. The activities we did leading up to our shoots helped me focus and yet be detached from the emotions I was portraying on screen. I feel blessed and thankful to have met someone with such great work ethic, dedication and positive input in my dreams. I hope to grow in my craft with Brads guidance as all the tools provided by him are essential in understanding and becoming a character.” Sunandini Verma, Toronto Actress
“Where do I even begin… I’ve taken acting classes from many coaches over the last 12 years and Brad Milne is the best coach I’ve ever had – BY FAR. Brad is a gifted actor with many years of experience and success in the business and his methods bring out the best in every student he teaches. I was a pretty decent actor before I started taking classes with Brad five months ago. But I’d hit a wall with my progress. My confidence had been shaken and I put up some pretty high walls that were getting in the way of my work. I felt the walls start to come down during my very first class at Milne Studio.
Brad creates a safe environment and helps you reach emotional depths you never realized were possible – and then he gives you the tools to reach those depths outside of the classroom. I recently took his 48 Hour Acting Bootcamp and the piece of work I produced on the last day is the best work I’ve ever done. The camp is basically months of classes rolled into one weekend and the progress you’ll make is incredible. It’s intense but SO much fun!! You’ll wish you could go to this bootcamp every weekend! Seriously. I’ve never made more progress than I have while studying with Brad Milne. My confidence has not only been restored, it’s growing by leaps and bounds. I can’t say this enough – Best. Coach. Ever.” Vanessa Cook, U.S. Actress
“This was my first acting class, and I am glad my first was with Brad. I was a bit apprehensive when I enrolled but knew it was the perfect fit the moment I walked in the door. Brad presents a down to earth and professional demeanor in his classes, and his PERGE method is a fantastic building block approach to character and script breakdown in creating an authentic performance. As a retired military officer/pilot and 3 time combat veteran with over 27 years of service I am a no-nonsense, get to the point sort of person and not a big fan of the touchy-feely – Brad had the perfect blend of both! I want my daughters to attend his class even if it’s just for the life experience! Forget the five– Make it 6 STARS!” Robert T. Yarborough – 48 Hour Acting Bootcamp
“Brad is amazing at what he does, which is acting, and helping other actors become better actors. I would highly recommend him to anybody serious with taking their acting careers to the next level. Best acting coach I’ve worked with!” Alex Poncio, U.S. Actor – Grown Ups 2
“Brad is an amazing instructor. I learned so much from his classes and continue to use “Perge.” He brings out the best actor/actress in you. Thank you Brad and team!!” Lisa Valdez – Texas Actress
“What an amazing experience this was! Great lessons from a great coach! Thank you Brad and all the other students.” Mary Becquet, Texas Actress
“For a long time I resisted the idea of taking acting classes – I felt I had some basic talent and didn’t want to fill my head with a bunch of “theory” and “method.” But when I wanted to take my craft to the next level, I knew I needed to get coaching, and let me tell you – I wish I hadn’t waited so long. Brad has extensive experience in the acting world, and has studied with dozens of the best coaches. It’s clear from the moment you step in that he’s committed to helping each student reach his or her potential. His approach is customizable. What you get is a set of tools that you can use to take your acting to the next level. Since I started using the PERGE technique, there is no doubt that my auditions have been better, I feel more confident about my choices, and my bookings have gone way up. Whatever level actor you may be – from newbie to professional, I highly recommend Brad to help you achieve your acting goals!” Jeff Brody, U.S. Actor
“It’s been awhile since I’d done any acting and having a full-time job on second shift doesn’t make it possible for me to really be involved in performing anymore. I saw the info for the 48 hour bootcamp here and thought it would be perfect to help me get back into performing. I was more than impressed with the structure and professionalism level of the course as well as Brad’s ability and the desire he has to push people to their performing limits to make them better actors and actresses. 5/5, I would recommend this to anyone who is serious about performing, in any manner, and to those who are trying to improve their ability to open up and communicate better with people.” Texas Richard Campa, Texas Actor
“The workshop was amazing! I can’t wait for the next round, I have learned so much. Such an amazing experience.” Stephanie Carlisle, Toronto Actress

Nothing matters but the events that take place inside of you. Brad makes sure each actor goes home with something they didn’t bring with them.” Mason Schuler, Texas Actor
“A brilliant one-day intensive. I learned a lot in such a brief amount of time. I’m looking forward to the next gathering to continue applying what was learned! It was brilliant working with everyone there!” Jordan Stal, Toronto Actor

Saffara Kaefer, Toronto Actress
“Brad is a great teacher and coach. I took his two-day workshop just for the hell of it. I thought I might learn something that would be useful to me in business, but the reason I signed up was that it sounded like an interesting way to spend a weekend. It was totally worth the money, and I’m going to take more of his workshops.” Travis Lippert, Texas/Colorada Filmmaker Actor
“As I have told you before, if it hadn’t been for your acting classes and mentoring of Sydney, she would have never gotten into CalArts!” Pam McDonald (Milne Studio Alumni, Sydney McDonald’s mom)
“It was an absolute pleasure working and learning from you this evening- you’re a master!”
Emma Moody, Denver Actress

“Brad Milne is more than an acting coach; he is a life coach and a friend. From the moment he meets you, he believes in you and when you work with him, you can’t help but shine.”
Rachel Pineda, Actress/Sports Television Professional, ESPN
“Brad Milne is more than an acting coach; he’s a motivator, friend, mentor, counselor, and innovator. He’s a genius when it comes to assessing what his students bring to the acting table–he then uses that assessment in pushing the right buttons to bring to surface the artist within each of us. He takes his craft very seriously, yet he knows how to have fun in the process. He is a coach among coaches.

“I was looking for a coach to help me with my professional business development. I have always been shy and uncertain in front of large groups of people, and no amount of corporate training and book reading was helping the problem. At last, I was fortunate to find Brad Milne – a terrific, passionate, dedicated and patient teacher – who is helping me to discover what it really means to communicate effectively. My first business presentation under his coaching was very successful, and I am looking forward to learning more from Brad. This is the best investment I made in myself. I am on a very exciting journey to discovering my true potential. You should try it – you wont’ be able to go back to your old self.”
