Reads for free & accepts tips

My name is Sydney K. Holts! I'm a recent graduate from the American Academy of Dramatic Arts, NYC campus. I've been well-trained by lots of incredible instructors, including Cassandra Freeman, who appears as Jasmine in Jordan Peele's "THE LAST OG" (2018-2021) on TBS, and Aunt Viv in the hit NBC series,"BEL-AIR" (2022-)!

I'd love to help you with self-tapes, rehearsals, script analysis, and/or reading original work with you! As a working actor myself, I value authenticity, creativity, and using everything from the text to craft a unique, engaging, stand-out performance. I also use my kindness, patience, and love of the work to help you shake your nerves, quiet your anxiety and enjoy the FUN of performing!

Let's work together, grow together, and HAVE FUN together!

Hey! My name is Sydney K. Holts. I'm a non-union actor, based in Philadelphia, PA/NYC. I have a BS in Dramatic Arts, Film & Television from St. John's University, and an Associate's degree from the American Academy of Dramatic Arts!

I specialize in witty, smart comedies, and visceral, passionate dramas. Blend Kerry Washington with Tracee Ellis Ross, Michaela Coel, and John Mulaney, and you get Sydney K. Holts! I am an out queer actor, and I dream of bringing impactful, queer stories to the stage and screen!
