Our Story

The Real Deal for Actors was created by award winning international actors Ade Laoye and Diana Yekinni to provide an avenue for actors and aspiring actors in Nollywood to sharpen their skills. We found that there weren’t many avenues available to get basic acting training. The Real Deal for Actors makes that training affordable and accessible – you can join us anywhere and everywhere! The best part is, you are learning from trained actors who have years of experience in the industry both at home and abroad. We have a lot in store for you and we can’t wait to set you on the path to kickstarting your Nollywood Dreams!

Our Acting Workshops

Have you always wanted to act but have no idea where to begin? Are you looking to transition into acting? Are you currently an actor looking to sharpen your skills? You’re in the right place! Our workshops are designed to teach you the basic skills you need for the stage and the screen. We explore the key areas that will strengthen you as an actor. Each workshop will cover a different topic that is fundamental to your training. We recommend taking ‘The Real Deal Bundle’ (which covers a 3-month cycle and restarts every quarter) because these foundational principles build on one another. Single workshops are available, however you don’t become a great actor by taking only one class. Workshops are scheduled for the last Sunday of every month (unless otherwise stated). The next workshop cycle begins April 24th, 2022.
