Wendy Faraone is a dynamic and influential on-and-off-set acting coach. A former child actor, Wendy later discovered her passion for directing, teaching, and coaching. She earned a theatre degree in directing and channeled those skills towards musicals and straight theatre. Wendy returned to her childhood roots when she joined Disney Channel and Disney XD as an on-set coach, where she worked with actors on Best Friends Whenever, I Didn’t Do It, A.N.T. Farm, Wizards of Waverly Place, Sonny With A Chance, I’m in the Band, Hannah Montana, as well as various Nickelodeon and Disney Channel pilots. She started directing for Disney Television on Season 3 of “Liv and Maddie”!
In addition to her coaching, Wendy teaches ongoing & comedy workshops in Orange County, Miami, New York City, Branson, Dallas, Houston, Wichita, Seattle, with Talent House Academy in Los Angeles, London and with The Atlanta Workshop Players. Her workshops sell out rapidly because students receive an inviting and energetic environment and the tools necessary to be successful, working actors in the entertainment industry. Wendy is the go-to acting coach called upon by many casting directors, agents, and managers in the multi-camera comedy industry. Recently, Wendy’s clients booked leads and recurring roles on Dog with a Blog, Liv and Maddie, Henry Danger, A.N.T. Farm, Haunted Hathaway’s and leads in Disney, Nickelodeon and network pilots for ABC. Wendy’s goal is to equip actors with the skills, confidence and dedication required to show up on set and be ready to work.
