Warner Loughlin has been coaching on set and privately for more than 20 years. Known for her warmth and intuitive approach, her technique shatters the myth that an actor’s past emotional traumas must be the fuel or foundation for their work.
In her earlier days in New York, Warner studied theatre with Lee Strasberg, Sonia Moore, and Michael Kahn (head of the drama department at Julliard from 1992-2006). Once in LA, Warner focused on film and TV, working as an actor, director and producer. She opened Warner Loughlin Studios in 1996 and has since worked with and shaped the careers of some of the biggest actors in Hollywood. From Oscar, Emmy and Tony nominees and winners, Warner is a star among the stars.
Warner continuously works with Amy Adams, Ryan Reynolds, Zooey Deschanel, Ashley Williams, Valerie Cruz, George Lopez, Amber Valletta, Blake Lively, and Ginnifer Goodwin…just to name a few.
While the demand for her time and expertise is high, Warner will always have a place in her heart (and schedule) for beginning actors.
Warner studied Contemporary Literature and Shakespeare at Oxford University and received her Bachelor of Arts degree, with honors, from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
