Who We Are

Aloha and welcome!

The Film Actor’s Studio was founded by Hawai‘i born and L.A. trained actress Sherilyn Robertson, who has worked for many years all over the country on theater, film and television productions, and is also a 10+ year member of the Screen Actor’s Guild (SAG). The places she has trained are among some of the most highly recommended and respected in Los Angeles including The Joanne Baron/D.W. Brown Studio, The Groundlings improvisation, and the Tepper/Gallegoes Commercial Workshops.

Several years ago, Sherilyn moved back home to Hawai‘i with a new endeavor in mind. She decided to utilize her vast experiences in a new way and form the Film Actor’s Studio with the intent of sharing her knowledge with others. Since then, the Studio is has been greatly successful and now offers a range of classes and workshops including improvisation (Who’s Line Is It Anyway?), film/television scene study, monologue work, modeling, self improvement, commercial preparation, and on-camera audition techniques.
