Top LA acting coach Jeremiah Comey (whose clients include actors from Avatar, The Twilight Saga, Fight Club and Titanic) has also worked closely with Juliet and has this to say about her,
"Juliet you have an abundance of knowledge and experience. I have watched you teach. I have the greatest respect for you. Your love of the craft of acting, your patience and understanding of your students was impressive. I watched you skillfully guide your students to draw out their talent. I can only compliment you on being an excellent teacher. I have enjoyed watching you work with your class"
Renowned acting coach Seth Barrish, private acting teacher to recent Oscar winner Anne Hathaway, describes her thus, "Her level of training and acting experience is at a level that is enviable worldwide." During the brief time- 6 months - classes have been going she has had three students land roles on Shortland St, one of which was core cast! Here are some quotes from students-
"For me it was a bit of a breakthrough" - Ryan Chao
"By working from impulse I found myself really connecting with scripts and really experiencing the strong genuine emotions that the words provoked” - Matthew Diesch
"Her class helps find the truth and honesty of the character. Juliet has a lie detector and doesn't let you get away with anything' - Amy Usherwood (Nurse Emma Shortland St.)
She is excited to share ideas and techniques that she learned and used for the 17 years she lived, acted and taught in New York City.
