Acting Coach and Teacher Rebecca Kitt has worked with Hollywood studios and Actors since 2002. She has been hired by directors to coach on a wide range of projects, including Dreamwork's summer blockbusters DISTURBIA and TROPIC THUNDER. She recently worked with Mark Romanek on the critically acclaimed pilot "Locke and Key". Rebecca's private clients are on such shows as "Nurse Jackie", "Mad Men", "Falling Skies", "Smash", and "The Good Wife" to name a few - as well as working in films that include The Visitor, Twilight, In Time, and the currently shooting Neighborhood Watch as well as Terrence Malick's untitled feature. Rebecca has assisted directors in drawing exciting performances from their actors. Whether coaching clients in the calm of her office or on a challenging location shoot, Rebecca's persistent drive to inspire actors has established her reputation for getting results.
Rebecca began her career as a student at San Francisco’s prestigious American Conservatory Theatre. She continued to hone her craft working on new and classic plays with several of San Francisco’s leading theatre companies. Her stunning work in William Inge’s PICNIC announced the arrival of a new talent in the local theatre scene.
Rebecca transitioned to Los Angeles when she enrolled at UCLA where she earned her Bachelor of Arts while juggling film, television and theatre work. She continued to study with many of the industry’s top acting teachers and coaches, ultimately coming to the attention of Ivana Chubbuck, the celebrated teacher and best selling author of THE POWER OF THE ACTOR. Eventually recruited to teach at the Ivana Chubbuck Studio in Hollywood, Rebecca discovered a new calling – an uncanny gift for connecting an actor’s life experiences to the demands of a part.
As she will often say: “It is life itself that we bring to the work. Without that life our emotional reservoir is a void.”
In addition to her work on studio projects and with her private clientele, Rebecca also teaches a master acting class. She prides herself on guarding her clients' privacy, but is pleased to list some of the projects they have worked on.
