Debbie Podowski is known for her work on The Professor (2018), ER (1994) and When Calls the Heart (2014).
Acting Instructor – The Fundamentals of Acting (aka The Builder) and The On-Camera Class
A professional actor for over 30 years, Deb has had the opportunity to be trained by some of the best acting teachers in North America, including Mel Tuck, who she feels is one of the industry’s best acting teachers. “Mel is a large reason why many Vancouver actors are now successful, and why I continue to work today.” Debra had the privilege of training with Mel for 6 years, prior to moving to Los Angeles where, among many other projects, she had a recurring role on the NBC hit series E.R. and the Fox sitcom, Titus. During her nine successful years in L.A., Deb trained with the likes of Howard Fine, Larry Moss, and the famed Beverly Hills Playhouse. With this experience in hand, she began coaching youth and adults and preparing them for auditions.
Having moved back to Vancouver, Deb wants to give back to the acting community by teaching with integrity, grace, and simplicity. Deb is very pleased to see that many of her students have become successful working actors on local, national and international television shows and movies.
