Samuel L. Jackson Teaching MasterClass
Samuel L. Jackson is the latest Hollywood A-lister to add teacher to his resume. The 68-year-old actor is teaching an online class this winter. The course is available for a one-time $90 fee and is offered exclusively through MasterClass.
In the class, Jackson will share lessons about how to break down a script, leverage their voice, embody their characters, improve their auditioning skills, and collaborate in the industry. The course will include more than 20 video lessons, a downloadable workbook, and the chance for students to ask Jackson questions (which he’ll answer selectively).
Jackson said in a statement,
In my MasterClass, I hope students learn that there’s no limit to what they can make-believe. By the end, they’ll be able to walk into a room, present their best self, and be happy with the result.
Jackson achieved prominence and critical acclaim in the early 1990s with films such as Jungle Fever (1991), Patriot Games (1992), Amos & Andrew (1993), True Romance (1993), Jurassic Park (1993) and his collaborations with director Quentin Tarantino including Pulp Fiction (1994), Jackie Brown (1997), Django Unchained (2012), and The Hateful Eight (2015).
