On the final day of the 2014 Summer Intensives, our students had the opportunity to meet with actor Burn Gorman (Pacific Rim, The Dark Knight Rises, Torchwood, Turn). It was a treat and an honor to hear his insights on acting, casting, and directing. Special thanks to Anne Chapman for mediating the conversation, and inviting Burn to come speak with our students.
