“If you like someone’s work and you have the opportunity to take a class from them it’s a unique opportunity,” says Mahoney.

Actress Ann Mahoney(The Walking Dead, Bad Moms) will be giving acting and audition advice to students at the University of Connecticut on September 29th from 12:30 pm to 1:30 pm. The actress who recently appeared in “Bad Moms” says, "I'm always happy to support the next generation of actors. If I can tell them about the ups and downs of the business and give them a clearer picture of what to expect in the real world, then maybe it will be easier for them to make a better decision if this is the right path for them."

During the symposium, students will be encouraged to ask questions about all aspects of acting. Mahoney says, "I want them to learn everything they can. No question is off limits except, of course, specific information that I can't reveal about The Walking Dead." Mahoney has been helping students for several years. She not only teaches acting classes at Loyola University on a regular basis, but she has branched out teaching classes in cities where she is shooting. Last year she taught classes at the Maryland International Film Festival and will return to teach another round of classes this coming year.

“If you like someone’s work and you have the opportunity to take a class from them it’s a unique opportunity,” says Mahoney.

Ann Mahoney grew up in New Orleans, Louisiana. She received her BA in Theatre Arts from Greensboro College North Carolina and then obtained her M.F.A. in Acting from the University of Connecticut-Storrs in 2001.
