"Diana Castle is not just a teacher, she is a guide; leading you down the path toward discovering, and accepting, your own humanity. Diana, and what she teaches, has reminded me not only of the joy to be found in this profession, but also, the great importance of what we do. To be an actor is to be a storyteller ... and storytelling is not merely a human act but more profoundly, it is an act of humanity."
"It is always a thrill to work with actors from Diana Castle's class. Their versatility and disciplined approach to the work is consistently impressive and a direct result of her teaching."
"I would never attend one of Diana's classes without a notebook. Her many lessons are an inspiration. She is a gifted teacher and coach."
"The greatest gift I've given to myself as a person and as an actor is Diana Castle's class. I've never known a teacher who communicates the DNA of the craft so eloquently. She is the pipeline to the heart of this vocation, and she has brought my creative life into technicolor."
"Diana allows the actor to create and have ownership of the work that they present, therefore it enables them to live less in fear and more in the moment."
