Who are we?

The Method Studio is a Los Angeles-based acting studio founded by actor, filmmaker and teacher Aylam Orian, which specializes in teaching "The Method", and how it is used together with the Stella Adler and Sanford Meisner techniques to create exceptional performances for the stage and screen.

A graduate of Tel Aviv University Film School, The Lee Strasberg Theatre & Film Institute and the Stella Adler Studio of Acting in New York, Aylam Orian has been acting in films, TV (NCIS: Los Angeles, Code Black, 30 Rock, America's Most Wanted, Between the Lines with Robert Downey Jr.), theatre and commercials since 1993. As a director, he has created the acclaimed movement-theatre show Beautiful World..., and has written, produced and directed several films such as A Nightmare on Bialik Street which screened at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival.

From 2000 to 2009 Orian served as The Lee Strasberg Theatre & Film Institute’s archivist, where he had the privilege of organizing and researching Lee Strasberg’s extensive collections of materials on acting, and specifically his "Method". Learning from the master himself, in addition to training with his disciples, have made orian an authentic expert in "The Method", which he then started teaching in 2007. Since then, he has taught at several prominent acting schools in New York and Los Angeles (The Lee Strasberg Theatre & Film Institute, Tres Artis Studio for Actors, Bilingual Acting Workshop, UCLA Extension, SAG Conservatory) before opening The Method Studio.
