"I've been working with Michael for about 4 years now. When I first moved to London, my agent told me I was moving too much for camera acting and was being  "theatrical". Meeting Michael was my salvation. We worked privately and in class to improve acting for the camera. He is a wonderful and inspiring teacher and gets you to dig deeper into the script, find your way to connect with the character and expand your technic. He helped me with preparing several auditions over the years, which I booked. Now even if on distance, we keep working together on every new project I get. And every acting session helps me improve my skills and get a better view upon the story and character I have to create.

Thank you Michael for being so awesome!"


"I met Michael over seven years ago when he's Soho acting class was recommend to me by a producer. He's classes where very different to the classes, course and workshops I'd previously attended and I found an honest harsh truth in Michael's approach to teaching that I connected with and has assisted me move forwards with my career with some very useful tools.

Fast forward to 2017 and I still enjoy working with Michael on a one to one basis and what a journey we've had working from page to screen on many occasions on Film and TV projects.

Weekly we work on all areas of the craft including preparing for auditions and if successful going even deeper into the essence of the character assisting me to life the life and deliver memorable on screen performances.I've grown massively over the years and my fire for doing great work grows stronger by the day. Michael is an essential part of my team and someone I'm proud to call a friend.

I met Michael Duval coming up to 5 years ago now and realised very quickly I have met a great teach/coach!! He has a great teaching skill and knowledge seeing you as an individual and has turned me from someone who's never had any acting teaching/knowledge/schooling to a professional actor and now signed up on Spotlight and with an agent and growing every week with the acting craft and work building too.

"My name is MJ Lee and I'm an actor regularly going to Instinctual Acting with Michael Duvall. Michael's concept of 'instinctual acting' is the reason that I am able to connect to characters. I am challenged every time I walk through the door when I go into workshops or work one-to-one with Michael. His idea of just trusting my instincts has pushed me to probe both my craft as an actor and myself as a person. The confidence I have in this method of acting will carry me throughout the longevity of my career."

"Studying under Michael really helps drive forward true instincts and limits the over-intellectualising that held me back for many years. Such a simple and true technique has taught me how to construct a working method that suits me. What excites me more, is that I've only scratched the surface of what iA can offer and already the way I approach the industry has changed greatly. This is a concept that will shape the way future actors build their careers, there is no doubt."

"I first began training with Michael just over seven years ago as was eager to develop my craft as a screen actor with the ultimate goal of developing a career for myself in TV & Film internationally.

As a former athlete and model I'd done some TV work but was completely and utterly raw in front of camera to begin with. Under Michael's tutelage and with his passion and unrelenting pursuit of excellence I can unequivocally reflect on the past few years where my acting career has seen me travel the world working on several international films. Two of which are large studio films that Michael guided me and helped me prepare my character thoroughly.

Indeed it is this attention to detail and thorough insight into the instinctual art of screen acting that got me noticed on set and has meant I was cast in other roles. I can only attribute this success to Michael's training.

I still see him regularly working on audition roles and also further honing my screen acting skills'

I consider him an integral part of my team and also a close friend."
