Aaron Metchik has taught, coached, or directed series regulars, leads in studio movies, co star, guest stars, and actors just beginning their careers.  Just a few of those actors are listed below! 

Zac Efron

Long time private acting coach to Zac Efron (As featured on E. True Hollywood Story)

“Aaron is an excellent teacher and my go to acting coach for years.  I highly recommend him.”

Joseph Garner

(Producer, Joker, Joker 2, Hangover Trilogy)


“Aaron is the real deal. He is the best acting coach I've seen in LA, Period. I've gone to Actor's Edge showcases and am always amazed at the talent I find there. I’ve cast Actor’s Edge students in my projects and I ask Aaron for his opinion on actors when we're casting our movies. If you are serious about becoming a better actor, or furthering your acting career, Aaron is the one to work with.”

Joseph Garner
Haley Sanchez

(Series Regular, Generation - HBO Max)

“Aaron genuinely cares about his students. He really helps you become the best actor you can be whatever skill level you’re at. I took Aaron’s classes and continue to coach with Aaron. We worked on my self-tape and callback for Generation together. In both coaching and his classes Aaron allowed me to see things that I never knew were there. Aaron helps actors understand their character’s worlds on a deep level, and ultimately makes sure we never feel like characters at all, but like real, authentic human beings.”

Sacha Carlson

(Series Regular, Netflix’s “Julie and The Phantoms”)

“Aaron is a master at his craft and to have him as an acting coach is a privilege. I have learned how to break down scenes, commit to playing characters, to take risks as an actor, and much more including strong audition technique. I’ve always felt comfortable and safe in his classes to be vulnerable and explore my emotions. Through his workshops, he gave me an opportunity to showcase my ability in front of agents in Los Angeles which got me my agent and set me on my path. I would not be where I am today in my career without Aaron.”

Harmeet K Pandey

(Series Regular, Disney+, Diary of a Future President)


“Aaron is such an amazing coach. He coached me and filmed the audition tape for Diary of a Future President. I feel I got the show, in large part, thanks to Aaron’s coaching, and I continue to coach with him on many of our episodes. Aaron really helps me bring characters to life and to discover the potential in every moment of a script. After our first day working together I knew he is probably the best coach I have had. Whenever I get coached by him I nearly always get a callback. I can tell that Aaron loves doing this and he always has an energy that makes working together a lot of fun. I am very happy I found Aaron and I hope to continue working with him for a long time!”

Jacob Timothy Manown

(A.P. Bio, Station 19, Criminal Minds, Grey’s Anatomy, Modern Family)


“I have been seeing Aaron Metchik for a while now for coaching sessions for my auditions as well as taping auditions to be submitted to casting offices. Aaron has been an extremely amazing and helpful coach.  He is reliable and always brings in great ideas. When we are taping an audition for casting, he is very professional and the tapes always come out perfect with great sound and lighting. Aaron is very approachable and makes coaching fun. He has been an amazing coach and I will continue to see him all of my coaching needs. I am very grateful that I was able to find Aaron Metchik and I recommend him highly!!!!”

Kenlee Townsend

(Series Regular, Saint X (Hulu)


"Over the course of only two years, my daughter Kenlee went from having zero acting experience, to getting a great agent and manager at an Actors Edge showcase, to booking a lead role on a major Hulu series!  Aaron is an exceptional acting teacher and coach.  Aaron coached Kenlee on her Saint X audition and they coach over zoom for her episodes when we’re on set in the Dominican republic. Kenlee’s role in the series is extremely dramatic and I am constantly amazed by the emotional depth Aaron helps bring out during their sessions. But my favorite part is watching them celebrate after the tear-jerking scenes are done and Kenlee returns to being her fun happy self! We know that Aaron and the Actors Edge team are always in our corner and supporting us on this journey.  Aaron coaches my other daughter Kaylee as well, who also got representation at an Actor’s Edge showcase and recently booked her first film role!"
