Special Thanks to Roy London (2006)

Only available in United States

Roy London, known as the “guy everyone thanked at the Oscars,” was an acting coach who changed the lives of dozens of major Hollywood actors. Hollywood’s best-kept secret, Roy coached and influenced the acting careers of hundreds of A-list actors.

In interviews with more than 50 actors – including Patricia Arquette, Hank Azaria, Drew Carey, Geena Davis, Jeff Goldblum, Famke Janssen, Gary Shandling, Sharon Stone, Patrick Swayze and Forest Whitaker – this documentary reveals the lessons and inspiration that Roy London provided to a spectacular community of actors. And, in never before seen footage, Roy shares his insight into what it takes to be a star and to survive as a star.

Special Thanks to Roy London is an astonishing look at the craft of acting that will delight anyone who has ever enjoyed a movie.

A wonderful film showing that the creative arts can be a spiritual path.

This film is the best how to live as an authentic person lesson I've ever seen. I learned how to live out loud. I was raised to be a good southern girl, but I can't do that. I've never been able to do that. I just can't be a walking, talking doll. Not outside of an institution anyway. It's ok to be real in any situation! It's always been ok. Sorry about all the toes I've stepped on through my life, but I was trying to dance on my knees. That is just sad if you have two good feet.

This was an incredible story told by his learned students who he helped achieve themselves.

Please increase the integrity of the subscription for those outside of the USA. I also live in a region (Canada) where a selection of videos I would like to view are not available. I would appreciate having the opportunity to view these as a subscriber. Looking forward to a better selection in the near future.

This documentary struck such a raw nerve in me that I almost can't explain. Everything that was said was incredibly beautiful about this unique human being. I almost didn't watch it not understanding the spiritual impact it would have on me - acting?? why would that interest me? Well, it goes much deeper than that. Watch, listen and experience this man, Roy London, then feel so fortunate to have learned even this little bit about his humanity.

Hi, there. I live in Ireland and subscribed to this website yesterday, but unfortunately, 99% of the videos do not work. It keeps saying: blocked in your region. Is there anything that can be done about this? Please help as I hardly can make use of the ten day trial. Very disappointing. Dr Eva West
