“Every teacher I have had has greatly inspired me to want to learn and to be better.”

-Rafi Reiss, Young Actors at Strasberg alumnus

WHAT MADE YOU WANT TO BECOME AN ACTOR?
I first auditioned for a school musical just hoping for experience, but I got a great role and loved it. I learned and grew so much through it. From then on acting is all I wanted to do. I want to become an actor because everyone I’ve met through acting has been incredible and turned into my role models.

WHO’S YOUR INSPIRATION?
My inspirations are people I’ve met while doing theater. Also, every teacher I have had has greatly inspired me to want to learn and to be better.

WHATS AN INTERESTING FACT OR QUALITY ABOUT YOURSELF
I used to play soccer all the time, but I got injured, so I switched to music and eventually theatre
