"Studying acting without Lauren is like climbing Mt. Everest without oxygen! Lauren isn’t a teacher who tells you what to do. She helps you create a deep connection with a character, even though it can sometimes feel uncomfortable. But stepping into that casting office knowing in your gut you have an edge on other actors is priceless.”

Michael Provost

"It's hard to put into words how immensely Lauren has affected my acting! She has enabled me to come at every character differently and with a positive state of mind. Her use of environment is second to none and has transformed my creative process. I'm certain that any actor who has trained with Lauren would agree that you grow just as much as a person as you do as an actor! She opens emotional doors and gives insight that we as humans are often blind to. It's an honor to work with her, and a blessing to have a studio like LPN to call home!"

Kyle Allen

“To give someone the ability to create emotions in others and to tell a compelling story is truly a gift. A gift that is given so freely by Lauren in this class. The extreme concentration of talent, from Lauren to her students, has given me the opportunity to grow quickly as an actor and as a person. I have seen myself and others transform in this class. That said, this studio has become much more than a class, but a place where people can be themselves and not only be accepted, but embraced and celebrated. This studio has made me the actor and person I am today. I’m proud to be able to call this studio my home.”

"Lauren is blessed with the gift of being able to get into her student actor's mind, heart and soul. She is the best actor-mechanic I know. She can turn a pinto into a professional race car. When I met Lauren I was pinto, now I'm working like a 'vette' and we're still making improvements!! Love ya Lauren!"

 I feel so lucky to have found Lauren. She undoubtedly brings out the best work in me and I always leave her studio feeling 10x more grounded as a human and actor.  She gets us so undeniably connected to our work—she makes acting feel like the rewarding and therapeutic thing that we all dream of it being. Since I’ve joined the studio, I’ve truly fallen in love with acting all over again. Words cannot describe how much love and gratitude I have for you, Lauren.

I look forward to each opportunity to get lost in our amazing world.

Mei Pak

"I audited several other acting classes for months before meeting Lauren. It was only at her class did I feel it in my gut that this was right for me. Her long-form improv and the level of caliber of her actors is so intimidating. I signed up to study with Lauren right after my audit because I saw her coach her students in an honest, direct and specific yet compassionate way."

Suraj Partha

I personally cannot thank her enough for taking the actor inside of me and helping him come alive."

Lauren Nadler has given me tools to build confidence as an actor which has translated into my growth as a  human being. From the moment I stepped into her studio it felt like home. She is masterful in identifying what her students need and drawing the best from them. She has also built a family environment where all of her students love not only her but each other. She is truly invested in and dedicated to her students. I am blessed to have her on my acting journey.

Acting is a craft. It’s an art. And furthermore, it’s quite personal. When you study with an acting coach, that prep time can be the difference between a solid performance and your best performance. You need someone who knows how to get immediate honest work out of you. Someone who gets you so dialed in with the material that it is just in your bones. I searched for that coach for years, and then I met Lauren Nadler. Lauren strengthens your strengths and cuts the things that aren’t working. Her method is bullet proof if you focus and listen to her. She always helps me get to the truth and I leave her feeling ready for whatever is thrown my way. From morning to night, she is always available for her actors and gives you 100% of her whether or not she has slept the night before!! She’s the real deal!! Thank you Lauren, for everything. Let’s keep killing it!! Love you!!!

Ariana Andrew

"I am super excited to be in my first Feature Film. Lauren Patrice Nadler has definitely helped me in my journey, transitioning from being a WWE Superstar to an up and coming actress.

I am so proud of the growth I have experienced as an actress since I started attending class, and I am eternally grateful to Lauren for creating a space for me and so many others to be as creative and honest as possible. Through studying with Lauren, I have learned how to make my work truthful and meaningful, and I will never be able to thank her enough for that. She is a devoted and caring teacher that takes the time to connect with every student to help us be the best actors we can be. Thank you Lauren for inspiring me and helping me grow so much as an actor and a person."

"Lauren is an incredible teacher and friend! She is fiercely passionate about the craft of acting and absolutely devoted to bringing out the very best in her students. I, for one, gain knowledge and insight at an exponential rate whenever I work with her, privately or in a class setting.

Jeremiah I. Williams

Echo Boomers, The Final Wish, On-Air

"When I first met Lauren I was scared out of my mind, But after a week she was my favorite person to ever coach with. Working with her is like riding a roller coaster for the first time. At first I was so scared to ride it, but then when I finished I had so much adrenaline I just wanted to keep going session after session. Lauren has shown me a different side of acting, and I mean a more honest side. I probably would not know what I was doing if I had never met her so I am thankful for having her around in my career. I truly cannot wait to see what the future holds for our sessions! :)"

"Lauren fearlessly helped bring out emotions in me I never knew existed. I now tackle characters from the girl next oor to gritty risky roles. She's a BS-meter. Lauren hears and sees lies, crutches and tricks that actors use as they happen. She not only spots them, but helps you delve into why you are using them and what youa re not doing to tell te truth. That relization is priceless. As is Lauren!"

Erin Astin

“Lauren has taught me more about letting it all go as an actor and personalizing my work than anyone else out there. She always stressed to do the work and throw the rest away. To take risks.

"I booked a supporting lead in a large reboot of a famous 1960's English show directly off a self tape I did with Lauren. It was a very complicated set of scenes to tape and Lauren expertly helped me navigate them. The thing that I love about working with Lauren is she brings her unique, personal relationship to character based approach and skillfully marries it with my conservatory training. Thank you, Lauren!!"

Jenny Westra

"When I started working with Lauren, I never expected to grow as rapidly as I did. Lauren has this innate ability to find each individual's strengths and tailors specific techniques to help them grow and succeed. Lauren has not only taught me how to connect with a character in a positive and strong way, but she has
taught me how to create and write a story, how to listen and be extremely present in the moment while performing, and there is no limit to what I can do and achieve. I LOVE LPN Studios and I am so grateful to have found a community that has only helped further my career."

“Lauren has helped me like no other acting coach has. Her methods and philosophies really work, like magic, you could say.

Thank you so much, Lauren, for all your help!"

Alexa Guiffre

Major Crimes, Mixology

“I have audited over 20 classes in LA, and none of them even come CLOSE to the experience and knowledge you gain from Lauren's class. Within a month of my first coaching session, I booked my first role on television. Between the constant support & encouragement from your classmates, and Lauren's “no bullshit” passionate attitude, it is impossible to not improve and succeed with your craft. This acting studio is truly the best kept secret in LA.“

Kelli Erdmann

Hairspray Live!, International Tour of Wicked, Reebok

“After my first coaching session with Lauren, I knew I had to get in her class. She has an incredible ability to get real emotions out of you that you didn't even know you had. Being brand new to acting, I was very intimidated, but this studio makes it possible for one to learn and grow from not only Lauren but all of the amazing actors there in a positive, judgement-free space.”

Patrick de Ledebur

In the few months I've been working with Lauren, I've booked a guest star, several commercials, and my call back ratio has more than doubled.”

Chris Voss

Ricardo Adam Zarate

Snowfall, On My Block, Lowlife, Deadly Sins, Most Likely to Die

“If someone would have told me six weeks ago that only a month after auditing Lauren's class I would book my first lead role on a TV show I would have been somewhat skeptical. After the first class, however, I knew I was in the right class. I am grateful for all of the help I've received from not only Lauren, but my classmates as well! This is not just a class, but a life changing experience. I plan to continue for years to come. Thanks, Lauren!! You're the BEST!”

"There was a feeling of pure love and excitement for life that I remember experiencing after winning my first football game and after rehearsing for my first school play; the type of feeling that makes you sit in your car when nobody else is around and scream at the top of your lungs!!   This town tries with all of its might to suck those feelings right out of you, leaving artists feeling crushed and lifeless. Lauren brings that feeling of excitement back to me.  She makes acting fun and meaningful.  She takes a room full of self-conscious, doubt-filled adults, and awakens the 4-year-old genius within us all!  I feel truly blessed to have crossed paths with such a beautiful and giving person. Now I can scream in my car again, thank you :)."


Jance Enslin

Are You Sleeping, The Interestings, #AmeriCan, Good Boy, Tigers

"When talking about their acting coaches, many people would say that their coach 'helped create them into the artist they are today', but Lauren is different. Lauren helped me find the artist that was already inside of me. With her, it is always about discovery of truth and self, not creating something from thin air. Lauren uses an array of different methods that are tailored to the individual actor’s needs, not a by-the-book technique that is structured in a way that limits an actor’s potential. She is passionate, deeply cares for all her students, and has an incredible ability to explain vague or difficult concepts in a way that is lucid. She is unlike anyone I have met. I am very grateful to have had Lauren in my life. She has not only helped me strengthen my art to the point of success, but also has been a mentor to me in my personal life. My growth as both a human and an artist has been fueled by Lauren’s mastery."

Rachel Thundat

Dredgewood, Microsoft, Dual Arrangements, Wonders of the Younger, My Crazy EX, Curacao Commercial

"I truly don't know where I would be without Lauren and LPN Studios. I have such a supportive and encouraging family of actors here, and a community that helps to better me and push me to my potential. Through the work I do in Lauren's class, I have been able to reach far beyond my comfort zone and more truly embody each character. Lauren has not only helped me expand my understanding of the material we do in class, but she has also helped me to develop discipline and a strong work ethic towards my career. Most of all, she helps me figure out what resonates with me, and how I can use that to strengthen each character I portray. Thank you, Lauren! I love you!"

"Lauren Patrice Nadler's class upped my acting to a whole new level, this is why I call this class "my class" and will be forever a fan . She is simply the best and this class is totally amazing. Between Lauren's Acting Classes and coaching the last six months have boomed for me unbelievably. And I am so grateful to have Lauren as my personal coach because she hasn't just made me a better actor but also a better human in general."

"Lauren has been with me since the beginning. Every class is a new adventure and a new lesson. I came to L.A. and didn’t know what to expect. I was on a complicated yet exciting adventure. Lauren was there to help me navigate through this industry and taught me how to grow into the actor I am today. She gave me an undeniable confidence in my abilities. She challenges actors to go into undiscovered territory and learn how to embrace your challenges. Lauren isn’t a teacher, she’s family."

"When pursuing any creative passion as a career, there is no greater gift than to find a teacher who can truly challenge as well as nurture your mind, body, and soul.

Lauren Patrice Nadler gave me that gift the moment I set foot into her space and continues to inspire and instill me with the confidence of control with each new day on this wild adventure!"

I am truly grateful for finding her in this sea of coaches in LA."

"Since joining Lauren Patrice Nadler’s teen class I have become so much more confident in my choices as an actor. There is a technique to this class co-taught by Micky that cannot be explained, but is effective and can be applied to comedy, drama, commercials... everything! Recently I booked 3 major projects all within a short 2 week time period and all since starting classes at LPN. "

She’s without a doubt an inspiration to keep chasing this dream - Many thanks to you, Lauren, and more to come!!”

"Lauren's class has changed my life. She is so much more than an Acting Coach, Teacher and Friend... She's a Deviation from the common type... an Anomaly! She brings out the Best in you while helping you become “every YOU" in front of the masses. Brilliant, Superb and Excellent are just some of the words that describe her."

Genesis Ochoa

"I can't thank my coach Lauren enough for the success I've had this year with my acting. Taking her classes has given me a new sense of confidence and the tools I've needed to land some great opportunities. The turn around in callbacks and being pinned for numerous projects is all thanks to what I've learned through her and her classes and private coaching. I'm looking forward to learning and growing more through her classes." 

Emily Humble

"Studying with Lauren has been an amazing experience. She has helped me develop my craft in ways that I never thought I would. Not only has she helped me grow as an actor, but she has helped me understand myself and be true to who I really am. She’s unlike any other coach I’ve seen and has an ability to understand each student's unique needs and help them overcome obstacles and develop into successful actors. She’s truly a treasure in this industry. Thank you Lauren, for everything you have done for me!" 

Khylin Rhambo

Teen Wolf, Ender's Game, The First Family 

"Every time I coach with Lauren, nothing but good comes out of it. She has helped me link every character to some place real to me and I don't feel like I'm pretending. When I walk out of her studio, I feel like I've gotten to know my character better and even myself because she digs so much out of me. All you can be is confident after that. Without her, I don't know if I would have booked 'Ender's Game'. Also, thanks to her, 'The First Family'. Thanks to Lauren, I feel that my career is started in the right place and I love her for that. From the bottom of my heart, thank you, Lauren, for all of the help and for opening my eyes."

”Lauren takes you deeper. Just when you think you have gotten the material where it needs to be, she swoops in and helps you add one more layer or aspect that makes your scene work and performance ten times more powerful.  The long form improv she teaches has helped shaped the way I audition and her private feedback has earned me a callback every single time.”

It’s inspiring to be in a class where everyone helps each other grow. I am beyond grateful to be a part of this studio that feels like home. The knowledge I have gained, has helped me so much when being on set and in the industry overall. I believe acting is ongoing learning experience and I trust in Lauren’s process to guide me through this journey. Thank you Lauren for being the wonderful human being you are!"

Alex Alsina

"Bottom line, one of a kind. I've been to several acting studios, some of which are "BIG NAME" studios, but I must say, none gave me the vibes LPN does. Luckily for me, I didn't just find a studio that challenges me every week and allows me to explore and expand my talent. I found a home. There's a lot of love and support at LPN and it all formulates from the passion, nurture, knowledge, and love we get from not only our teacher, but, our friend, Lauren."

“I studied with Lauren several years ago and recently returned to her class because she challenges you and your comfort zones to look outside your box and run toward the fear. My first three weeks back I booked 2 primetime  shows (and counting).  Thanks Lauren!”

Emily Jordan

Face to Face, Ant-Lion, Usual Suspects, Marvin Marvin

“Lauren's class is like a warm wool sweater on a cold night. She provides you with warmth and confidence, yet knows how to be a little itchy and push you out of your comfort zone. Lauren is my center camp when I need to become grounded, full of confidence, and pushed.  She is one of LA's best!! I would never be where I am without Lauren. She is an excellent teacher AND supporter. And I think it is so important to have someone on your side!!”

Mikayla Gibson

"I am in love with Lauren’s class! She has taught me so much - to be truthful in my acting and to just let go and be free. Also, her private coaching is truly amazing.  Because of her, my auditioning skills have improved tremendously. After one private coaching lesson with Lauren, I booked a supporting role in my first Feature Film. I definitely owe it to her. Thank you so much Lauren!" 

Anders Ravenstad

"Lauren Patrice Nadler has taught me how to hone my acting ability into a usable tool to consistently audition well, relax in front of the camera, and truly connect with and embody my characters. Her commitment to her students' development and success, paired with her loving nature, create an environment where any actor can truly grow and better prepare themselves for the acting world." 

Kim Hamilton

“Lauren has magical little fireflies that come out of her soul and fly into yours and light up parts of yourself that were in the dark to you ...... but seriously - when I work with Lauren all the lights come on and everything becomes clear. This work with her is invaluable to me as a performer and a person.”

Reza Breakstone

BelVita Breakfast Biscuits, Optimum Phone

“When we fail to pay attention to the details of the truth, such as how to honestly greet a significant other, or look around an apartment we just entered, or even dial a phone, she holds us accountable. That makes for a more aware actor; an actor who is paying attention and is in the moment. In essence, Lauren is teaching us how to be a consummate professional. Which is what I came to L.A. to be--a true pro.”

Mariel de la Mora

The Roommates, Annie Undocumented, WRNG in Studio City

“Lauren is incredibly intuitive. She has pulled up events and emotions in my life that I had long put away. She does this so effortlessly, then helps you enter into the skin of the character. Once there, you feel secure enough to keep adding layers and ultimately let loose in the audition room. Thank you Lauren for being so supportive and encouraging, and for making sure I am continuously truthful and grounded. You are truly magical!!”

Lexi DiBenedetto

"Before working with Lauren, I felt as if I were in a slump, After only two coaching sessio I booked a big guest star role on the hit show 'Grey's Anatomy'. It is all possible because Lauren cared enough to bring out my best! I have found something very special and I thank Lauren! :)"

Tye Edwards

“When I met Lauren I was raw, having only sketch and improv experience. She took my comic ‘bag of tricks’ and helped mold me into a more complete actor and person. Because of Lauren, I began to trust myself and grow in ways I didn’t even know were possible. Her guidance has been eye-opening and invaluable.” ​

Caleb Mixson

How to Get Away With Murder

"Lauren has not just taught me about the art of acting, she’s taught me about life, myself, how we exist in this world we live in,  and the parts of me that I never even knew were there.  She teaches how to discover the (real) three-dimensional world that exists behind the two-dimensional script, the world that is actually your inner self ... And that has changed my life.”

Brian Balzerini

Rosewood, Twisted, GLEE, Perks of Being a Wallflower

“Lauren offers what very few teachers are able or willing to give. She provides an actor at any level the opportunity to tap into a world of first-hand knowledge that she gives willingly and without gratuity.  You CANNOT travel this road alone and having Lauren on your team provides you a teacher, mentor, and friend you will need for every step of the way.” 

Dexter Mayfield

The Middle, Old Dogs & New Tricks, Target Commercial

"Words cannot express how grateful I am to have Lauren guide me through my journey into acting.  She really has helped unlock a confidence within me that I never knew I had.  By simply encouraging me to be my authentic self while acting, or rather just BEING, Lauren has truly inspired me to be the best performer and artist that I can be!"

“I couldn't have booked this commercial without Lauren's voice in my head saying, 'Most importantly, just have fun.' She has helped me feel comfortable in my own skin and has brought a light out of me I never knew I had. Lauren and her teachings have helped me in my acting and daily life in the most positive ways. She has never stopped believing in me and for that I thank her! Lauren is TRULY someone special!”

"I was a childhood actor and model and left and battled fear for years, but my dream was always to be an actor.  Then I met Lauren. She made me realize that I was cheating myself. She has the tools and magic to not only get you started but to help you fulfill your passion. Since then I did got a lead role in an international award-winning film, 'Rescue Me', as well as numerous indie films. Love you, talented goddess.”

“Lauren's class is amazing. Thanks to her, I feel like I have gone to another level very quickly. I have gained success -- I booked three commercials back to back to back my first month in her class.”  

Maria Delle Grazie


"Lauren is more than just a great acting teacher, she's an acting therapist. Anytime I have an emotional block that's preventing me to get to a deeper level of a character, she knows how to pull the emotions from my inner being and apply them to help me with an intense, powerful and honest performance. She is the root of my acting abilities and has helped me to enjoy my deep, dramatic roles opposed to fear them. Thanks, lady!"

"Lauren helped me book my first national commercial and series. She continues to give me the confidence to succeed, so it made sense for her to direct my first producing project. I trust her eye to watch over my passion project and guide my performance."

Peter Pasco

"Lauren has a keen eye and sensitivity for helping actors, whether they are beginners or professionals.  She doesn't let you get away with tricks or go to's. She doesn't settle for anything less than you, and she encourages you to trust that you are enough.”

Joanne Ryan

Criminal Minds, Ringer

“Lauren helps you embrace that thing that sets you apart from the rest and to really OWN IT!!. My acting has grown tremendously since I started studying with her, she is unlike any other acting teacher I ever had. She gets it. She gets you. She instinctively knows how to extract a truthful, real, honest performance. She's truly gifted.”

Zakareth Ruben

Criminal Minds, Six Feet Under

“Lauren is one of the best acting teachers and coaches in Los Angeles.  She has a remarkable ability to bring out the best in all her students.  I can not express in words how much richer my life and work have become since meeting her.  My only regret with Lauren is that I hadn't met her years ago when I first moved to LA.”  

Cherrae Stuart

Equal, Live Evil, The Rocker, Zoe & Chloe

“I got a 4 year degree in Dramatic Arts, with a focus in performance.  And that is exactly what I learned, how to perform.  But working with Lauren, I've learned how to live and breathe and tell the truth in my acting.  Lauren has helped me to hone in on my own personal truths and helped me to channel them into every character.  Bringing a life and a light to each one that is uniquely mine, deeply personal, and extremely valuable.”  

Miriam Korn

Tosh.O, The Process, Shapetown USA, Veronica Mars, Supernatural

"The very first project Lauren coached me on I booked, thanks to her. Not only have I grown leaps and bounds as an actress, my audition to booking ratio has soared. I've also watched classmates expand their talents one hundred fold. Lauren is the missing piece of the puzzle. She's a hidden gem in Los Angeles. She is someone who has extensive experience in the industry, knows who's casting what and what their offices are like and is AMAZING at directing actors in a way that is both fun, loving and creates results."

Carrie Finklea

Beast Mode, The Mentalist, Elephant, The Roommate, Simon Says

“We have become completely obsessed with conforming to 'what Hollywood wants' and we forget that it is our essence as a person and our creativity as an actor that books us the job. A good coach does not tell you 'how you should sound' or 'where to take a beat' or mark an arrow to where you need to 'look sad'.  Too many coaches/teachers out there fill our heads with surface.  Too many of young Hollywood's talent pool are learning how to LOOK like they are acting rather than just being. Working with Lauren I have given myself permission to BE."

Greg Kulp

The Valley Drowner, Queens of the Jungle

"I cannot begin to explain the magic voodoo Lauren possesses as a coach. Her guidance is second to none and I have no doubt in my mind I have found my coach that will help form and guide me throughout my hopeful career."

Renee Kay

It's You Not Me, Being Brielle

"Lauren creates a safe environment to grow as an actor with support and encouragement.  It feels like home at her studio.  I wish I had been working with her sooner because she helps you knock down the walls faster to find the truth."
