AN acting workshop is in progress at the University of the South Pacific (USP) Oceania Centre and is conducted by Sandra Knight Stephenson - star of five feature films.

The week-long workshop, which started on Monday, aims to train participants for screen and stage performance.

Ms Stephenson, who had an acting career in the US and lives in Hawaii, said it was an interesting experience coaching students in Fiji.

"There are some very creative young participants here and I am having an amazing time with them," she said.

The workshop, which promotes the development of young actors and their talents, attracted 12 participants.

One of the trainings provided, 'cold reading', is a way to train actors how to be natural while acting.

"Cold reading is when the actors do not know anything about what they are going to act about so this trains them to be spontaneous," she said.

The workshop ends on Friday.
