About Giles Foreman
As one of the Europe’s leading film acting coaches, Giles brings a wealth of experience in the creation of character and in the industry generally, working throughout Europe and the USA.
Giles is an expert on the Character Analysis work pioneered at the Drama Centre London under Yat Malmgren. He is therefore ideally placed to provide directors and producers with a unique view of the psychology of those they are auditioning, the roles they are auditioning for and how those individuals might be brought to the character through a rehearsal process.
Giles has worked as an acting coach at the Drama Centre, London; Deutsche Schauspiel Akademie, Berlin; The Forum for Filmschauspiel, Berlin; Creative Education, The City Lit; NODA; Stage Center – Jerusalem, the Pula International Festival of Theatre, Croatia; the International Festival of Making Theater, Athens; Trixter and Eicar in Paris; FOCAL in Switzerland; GFCA in Luxembourg; at the Centro del Actor in Madrid; First Take Schauspielschule in Koln, and Munich’s Acting Atelier. He is a specialist in realism for stage and screen and also the ‘Movement Psychology’ work of Yat Malmgren, introducing the work to a new generation of actors in Zurich, Berlin, Paris, Munich, Madrid and Rome.
