Our Story

The Actors Circle was started in 2003 by Marcie Smolin and Kevin McDermott as an offshoot of the quarter century-old Center Stage LA, originally founded by Mr. McDermott as the foremost training facility for young actors in Los Angeles. The Actors Circle’s new vision was to provide a teaching studio for actors of all ages – from 5 to 100 and beyond. After Mr. McDermott retired Marcie Smolin continued to run the studio. Today, The Actors Circle provides training in scene study, cold reading, audition technique and improvisation with an emphasis on film and television work. While many students from The Actors Circle have gone on to achieve enormous professional success, their ongoing commitment to the studio continues to mentor new students and help foster a learning atmosphere that is professional, highly creative and lots of fun.
