Hi everyone! I'm Annabel Barrett, a Conservatory trained, NYC raised, LA Based =, BiCoastal (pre-Covid, of course) actress, singer, & coach. I feel like I've been a professional reader my whole acting career, because I always wanted to help actors prep for auditions, get off book... whatever could keep me connecting to the lifestyle! I can't help but get excited for and invested in a scene or opportunit, even if it's not mine, which I've been told is a great trait to have as a coach (& reader). This, coupled with the skills and insight I've acquired over the 15+ years I've been a represented, auditioning actor, has led me to once side gig, now potentially life changing business that's I've been growing over this past year. What is that?
Well, I'm beginning to build my coaching work from an occasionally donation based favor to a broader audience, especially when the world seemed to show up ONLY online, so forgive the lack of social media etc associated with it... As "The Zen Actor's Coach", I support actors and artists both in audition prep, as well as self-management. I teach habits and skills to help keep build and maintain a healthy work/life balance, while tackling the business side of being an actor, including how to stay sane(ish) through it all. Between September 2019 & 2020, I booked 5 feature films, mainly Indie Features of all budget levels (40k-9M). Three of them were lead roles, and 4 of them were booked by me, even though I had a manager & agent...I even booked a Paramount Feature by staying in touch, networking, and doing THE WORK.
It took building my own routine, priorities, & goals (plus shifting my perspective to serve me best) for my life, & my RELATIONSHIP to my life and career to truly shift from a constant struggle & frustration, to a focused but flexible mind & an open heart.
I could go on for hours, so before I do, I'll cut myself off ;)

I'm happy to be a reader, a coach, or help with whatever career bump you're going through...or all of the above! Try me! I'm here for you.
Hi everyone! I'm Annabel Barrett, a Conservatory trained, NYC raised, LA Based =, BiCoastal (pre-Covid, of course) actress, singer, & coach. I began acting in NYC theaters, mainly Musical Theater, which led me to TV & Film by early high school years.
I'm extensively trained in several techniques both booking-specific, and acting, having studied at The William Esper Studio, Margie Haber Studio, Ivanna Chubbuck Studio, and with Amy Lyndon. I love studying and learning all the many tools used to reach into the human experience.
