I first met Ivana Chubbuck in 1990. I had moved from New York and my N.Y. teachers could only coach me by phone. No internet. No cell phone yet. I prepared my first episode of "thirtysomething" on a payphone call to Manhattan. But I needed someone local, someone good. Ivana was my first L.A. coach and she quickly proved that she had the eye and the talent to make powerful choices with any text I brought her. In time, she developed a stable of actors that worked with her, including Halle Berry, Brad Pitt, Charlize Theron, Jim Carrey, James Franco, Jake Gyllenhaal, Jessica Biel and many others. Ivana has her own studio firmly established on Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles. Ivana is also the author of the best selling book, "The Power of the Actor." https://www.amazon.com/Power-Actor-Ivana-Chubbuck/dp/1592401538/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1472741062&sr=1-1&keywords=power+of+the+actor
