BoJesse’s training began with legendary acting coach, Stella Adler, at the prestigious Stella Adler Conservatory Theatre. He continued on to be privately mentored by Academy Award-winning actress, Shelley Winters, at the Actors Studio West and is honored to be a lifetime member. BoJesse later trained with acclaimed acting coach Sandy Marshall, immersing himself into the Sanford Meisner repetition technique.
In 2012, BoJesse founded Truth Be Told Acting Collective to support disciplined actors in achieving emotionally connected work. His process consists of a strong foundation based on Stanislavski’s preparation of building a character, combined with Strasberg’s method and Meisner’s repetition exercise in the moment. BoJesse offers private, group, and on-set coaching for adult, teen, and child actors.
BoJesse Christopher Acting Studio was established in 2018 to coach professional, disciplined, tv and film actors into their true potential.
