"Diana Castle is the teacher I've been waiting for my whole life. I wanted to be an actor so I could be other people and get out of myself. She continues to teach me that “others” also exist inside of me. Through this work, I am more fully myself. Diana has provided me with a daily practice that has strengthened my empathy, my confidence and my play spirit. I AM!"
"Diana taught me lessons of empathy and character work that I carry with me in every role I play, no matter if it's an audition, series, film or play. Her words of wisdom cut to the bone. I have this quote from her pasted at my desk, a daily reminder of her wisdom "Storytelling is bigger than any agent, any studio, any audition. It will be around longer than any one of us, and it is only through us, the artists, that these divine, universal stories stay eternal". Diana burrows deep into the artistry of acting, while always reminding us that the fun of play and imagination is just as essential. I am so grateful to have found her as a guide and muse!"
"While many acting classes attempt to teach students how to act, Diana guides us to true humanity. Reminding our empathetic nature to intuitively express and play. She brings us back to our childhood where our imagination runs wild."
"I will shout Diana Castle’s name from every rooftop to anyone who cares to listen. She does incredibly important work in Hollywood and around the world, fanning The Artist’s flame until it becomes a roaring fire. She raised my game as an actor by helping me deeply access and strengthen my voice in my work, giving me the greatest gift I believe all actors crave - ownership. In my creating, my storytelling and my playing. So many of the actors we know and love have been touched by Diana and the industry is much better for it."
"For those looking to make their work richer, deeper and more full, The Imagined Life is for you! Diana Castle is a master at introducing you to depths of your imagination and helping you to truly CREATE."
