Lin trained to act at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School, where she was taught that ‘an actor is somebody who loves to play’. It’s a joy to her to pass on something of what that means by helping ATS students develop practical stagecraft as well as confidence and emotional intelligence.
She’s also a writer, and scripted Now and Then, From the Heart and Just the Job - shows that brought together all ATS classes, aged from 5 to 45, in ambitious and challenging revue-style performances, supported creatively and practically by many top industry professionals.
Her acting career has mainly been in theatre and voicework, alongside accidentally becoming a management trainer some 20 years ago. In 2005 she founded her own consultancy, Play4Real (www.play4real.co.uk), which takes theatrical techniques such as roleplay and forum theatre into business organisations of all types, helping to boost confidence and develop skills at presentations and conversations in people’s everyday working lives. Huge fun.
