KC Clyde teaches the Audition Technique, Character Study, and Script Analysis classes.
KC believes in multi-dimensional work and multi-dimensional artists. He has been incessantly studying and training in the art of acting for the past 16 years. A graduate of the Meisner Conservatory, he has then sought out and trained with some of the best teacher in the country in script analysis, scene study, audition technique, movement, Alexander technique, emotion mapping, and voice.
KC started his teaching endeavors at “ The Margie Haber Studio” where he quickly became a student favorite at the studio. In his time there, he built up a large following of students and private clients. KC has also has been working as an actor in Los Angeles and New York. Some of his most recent credits include the feature film EVERYBODY LOVES SOMEBODY, Starring opposite Karla Souza, BIG KILL, a period piece set in the late 1800s starring Jason Patrick, WAR PIGS, an action packed WWII movie where he stars along side Oscar nominee Micky Rourke, and RUN THE TIDE, a heavy drama set on the back drop of two brothers escaping everything.
Recurring roles on DO NO HARM for NBC and VERONICA MARS for the CW, as well as multiple pilots and guest stars such as SWALLOW YOUR BLISS, SEER, ER, and CROSSING JORDAN, to name a few, have made KC someone sought after in the TV world. But it's his work in studio and independent films, such as FRIENDS WITH MONEY, SOMETHING NEW, I'LL ALWAYS KNOW WHAT YOU DID LAST SUMMER, and STRANGER THAN FICTION that has given him a chance to truly get noticed.
All of this time and dedication are now being poured into the Clyde Bernardy Acting Studio, giving his students the opportunity to learn everything KC has picked up as a working actor.
Nawal Bengholam teaches the Business of Acting class and oversees the panels and special classes.
Nawal was born and raised (to be a doctor) in Casablanca, Morocco. She moved to sunny California to do her pre-med at UCSD…but then made the grave ‘mistake’ of taking a couple of acting classes as electives her senior year, took a sharp right, and landed on CRIMINAL MINDS, playing a Medical Examiner…same thing, right? Mom? Dad? Hello??
The point is: when something reaches deep in your soul, grabs you, and makes you feel more alive than ever before, you heed! This is how she feels about this beautiful craft of ours! This is how she lives it and this is how she teaches it. Having worked behind the camera in both production and casting, she also has a deep reverence for the glorious machine that is Hollywood and a great respect for the collaborative process, which she encourages her students to both respect and leverage.
A graduate of The Tony Robbins Leadership Academy, Nawal combines her peak performance coaching experience and her understanding of the business side of the industry to guide her students through the realities of auditioning TODAY and reconnect them with gratitude and pride in being the storytellers that they are. Her classes are part technique, part life coaching, all HEART...with a generous sprinkle of fun!" 😉
Nawal can be seen in such TV shows as BOSCH, CODE BLACK, CRIMINAL MINDS, MODERN FAMILY, HEARTBEAT, HOLLYWOOD HEIGHTS, THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL, THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS, among others. On the feature side she has appeared in the Sundance favorite, CAMP X-RAY (opposite Kristen Stewart), A WIFE BETRAYED, and soon to be released, NIGHT WALK.
