Tom Ardavany, a charismatic, spiritual soul with a talent for teaching, developed the Ardavany Approach through his 20 years of practicing as an actor, writer, director, and teacher.
In his earlier years, working with various acting studios and in master classes, Ardavany cultivated the techniques he found worked and discarded those that did not. Ardavany still felt at a loss however, when it came to having a foolproof method to confidently use while working on set. No teaching properly prepared him to work in the context of a foreign environment outside the classroom. The intense stressors of working in the television and film industry, for example, were not being addressed. “Nothing helped me realize my full potential when action was called,” Ardavany explains. Fifteen years later, after many years of focused effort, The Approach methodology effectively eliminates these obstacles and allows the actor to perform his craft in a fearless, “present” state of being.
Tom Ardavany has acted in and directed numerous films and plays. Ardavany was awarded “ Best Director” for the Pulitzer prize winning play “Short Eyes”, written by Miguel Pinero. Tom currently has two features in post production, “ Eden’s Mountain” (shot in Wyoming) & “ Pot Luck People”, starring Josh Holloway.
Ardavany teaches “The Ardavany Approach” to actors, writers, directors and other creative individuals at his beachfront studio in Venice, in Hollywood, and at special sessions worldwide. He has led 5 of his acting clients on to win two Golden Globe and three Emmy awards. His clients have included Josh Holloway ( ABC’s Lost), Rudy Reyes (HBO’s “Generation Kill”), and Matt Gerald (Avatar).
