About

Lori Wyman

During her Miami Vice days, she was routinely asked if she would teach actors how to audition for film and television. Reluctant to teach, Lori eventually changed her attitude when she saw that actors needed the knowledge and skill that she had. To help her students learn, she wrote a book about auditioning: “The Organic Actor, Insiders Secrets to Auditioning for Film and Television.”

Today Lori provides classes on acting and auditioning for children and adults. Labeling herself as an actor’s advocate, she has the ability to help actors craft a great audition. Realizing that the mental component of acting was as important as the physical, she went back to school and got her Master’s degree in Psychology with a minor in Drama Therapy. This knowledge is key to her helping actor’s succeed.
