Can you believe the level of success a 'part-time' acting school manages to achieve?
Joel McVeagh back from filming the sequel to the Netflix 'smash' A Christmas Prince 2 - The Wedding!
We all LOVED watching YSA's JR teacher and long-term pupil of mine, Joel McVeagh playing a 'supporting lead' role in A Christmas Prince and now this coming Christmas we will get to do it all over again. This film was a Netflix smash and Joel's performance was amazing. Joel has been working extremely hard to get to this level of success and is excited at the prospects that may come as a result of this wonderful production. He has just come back from filming in Romania for 5 weeks! We are all extremely proud of you Joel. xYSAx
Zak Sutcliffe is taking this industry by storm.
From the day he entered YSA's doors, he has been focussed, dedicated and taken every opportunity that we have thrown at him. With roles in 'Grimsby' 'Peter and Wendy' 'No Offence' 'Butterfly' just to name a few. Zak is the word on the industry's lips. From taking roles in Hollywood funded films, TV dramas and a award winning TV Film and Shorts, he has added another massive feat to his CV.
A lead in popular TV Series.
This young man is only 17 and has already appeared to have done everything.
We are all extremely proud of you at YSA. Well Done. xYSAx
