My name is Judy Kain.

I am a SAG-Award winning actress for my performance on Mad Men as Olive Healy, and I’ve won ten Backstage West awards for my business, Keep It Real Acting Studios, including Favorite Audition Teacher and Favorite On-Camera Teacher. My students book roles daily, including productions such as Disney’s A Wrinkle In Time, Marvel’s Black Panther, and NBC’s The Good Place, to name a few.

I've also written the critically-acclaimed I Booked It: The Commercial Actor’s Handbook, and recently embarked on my latest venture:
The Business Of Acting Online.

Actors all over the country have benefited from Judy's techniques as she speaks, teaches and holds workshops sharing her outstanding career advice. Judy confidently trains actors to book.

Keep It Real Acting Studios continues its reign as one of the BEST acting schools one could possibly find, both among Angelenos and in terms of the Backstage Readers’
Choice Awards.

I booked it is the ultimate handbook for
every commercial actor.

"I Booked It" has been brewing inside Judy for most of her career.

It is a compilation of everything she has done to book over four hundred commercials thus far. The book reads just like Judy talks- straightforward and practical.

It covers all aspects of the commercial actor's journey, from finding an agent to booking the job.

Interviewing Judy Kain for my show “Millennial Hollywood” was such a learning experience. With her years of hands-on experience, no other industry professional has broken down the audition process in such a way as she has. With that in addition to her loving & welcoming teaching approach, Judy is truly a force to be reckoned with in the entertainment industry.
