“Everything I teach is about being truthful, rather than performing.” – Margie Haber
Margie Haber is known as Hollywood’s top audition coach. She began her career as an actor before becoming a coach. Margie’s philosophy empowers actors to create strong ‘characters’ for both auditions and booked roles. And whether that is on TV, film or stage. It’s about finding your own power in the lives you create.
While teaching at the Lee Strasberg Institute in the 1970’s that she noticed actors were confident at scene study but struggling with the audition process. Using her past experience as a speech therapist combined with her acting experience Margie developed the internationally recognized Haber Phrasing™. A 10-step instinctual approach to cold reading and auditions.
Margie Haber has always given her all to her students. The Margie Haber Studio opened in 1986 and just a few years later, two of Margie’s clients, Brad Pitt and Michael Easton, wound up testing for the same role in the film “Thelma & Louise“. That was Pitt’s career breakthrough role and she’s helped thousands of other actors do the same ever since.
Margie Haber evolved her teaching to empower actors beyond the audition to life on the set and the stage. She hand-picks and trains all her teachers, therefore, ensuring a studio filled with caring, passionate educators who encourage students to grow as a person as well as an actor.
For over three decades, students have attended her workshops in locations around the globe. Including Indonesia, Australia, New Zealand, Europe, Atlanta, Hong Kong and all over the United States.
In 2015, she coached and associate produced the feature film, Bravetown, (starring Josh Duhamel, Lucas Till, Laura Dern, and Maria Bello). She also produced and starred in Hollywood Trials, a Docu/Reality TV series about Margie starring Emmett Scanlan for RTE network in Ireland.
