Judah Katz

Private Film/TV acting coach and GEMINI & ACTRA Award winning actor.



  * Private multi-session workshops

Having privately coached hundreds of actors across North America, I can help you as well.

Seasoned pro or a newer actor, we can work on your film/tv camera craft in a multi-session private workshop, help get you better prepared for that important audition or shoot a coached and professional self tape.


As a veteran actor, I can pass on my experience.

A Gemini and ACTRA Award winner, I've worked with directors David Cronenberg to Ron Howard and actors Philip Seymour Hoffman, Russell Crowe, Walter Matthau, Kevin Spacey, amongst many others.

All told, in over 35 years in Toronto and Los Angeles I’ve worked on 90+ film and television productions as well as over 60 national commercials.

Gloria Mann: Casting Director


"I have been working with Judah for two years. He is my private acting coach and regularly helps me with self-tapes, auditions and my craft. I now feel so much more confidant about auditioning and book more work than ever before. He is kind, generous, professional, clear, focused and wonderfully talented. I highly recommend working with him."

Tara Nicodemo: Actor (Star Trek Discovery, Murdoch Mysteries, Chaos Walking, Taken, Private Eyes...)

"Big shout out to Judah Katz for a great self tape/coaching session. We had to dig deep to find the character without much to work with and Judah was fantastic is finding the breadth and nuance of this complex character."

Carl Bauer: Actor (Suits, Defiance...)


“One of the great pleasures of directing is when an actor elevates the material off the page and up into some magical, mysterious and wonderous emotional space. Judah did that for me, showed me what "performance" can be, and helped make me a better director.”
