Four Acting Consultants Share Their Expertise –

Stunt coordinator Robert Nagle is a pro at preparing actors for high-intensity driving scenes in movies like Ford v Ferrari. His approach involves pushing actors beyond their comfort zone, ensuring they are more than ready for the demands of the role. Chavo Guerrero Jr., a professional wrestler, brings a similar philosophy to training actors for wrestling scenes. He emphasizes respect for the ring and tailors his coaching to each actor’s abilities. Yannick Nézet-Séguin, a conductor and pianist, was tasked with teaching Bradley Cooper how to conduct like Leonard Bernstein in Maestro. Rada Owen, an Olympic swimmer, worked with Annette Bening to develop proper swimming technique for her role as distance swimmer Diana Nyad. As a result, Bening impressed peers with her accurate portrayal of Nyad’s swimming style.
