  • I first took an acting class from Terry Knickerbocker more than 25 years ago. Since then I have worked with him on every film and stage role I’ve done. Nobody’s better at what he does. Terry is incredibly intuitive and full of ideas that are usually outside the box. His sense of what is truthful is like a laser. I depend on him. He’s invaluable to me and I don’t know what I’d do without him.

    -Sam Rockwell (Moon, Iron Man 2, Seven Psychopaths)

  • Terry has been an invaluable part of my process for many years. He helps me shape my characters, prepares me for auditions, and challenges me to push myself as an actress. Terry continues to impress me with his commitment to character and story. I wouldn’t be as fearless or as confident without his guidance.

    -Emmy Rossum (Shameless, The Phantom of The Opera)

  • Terry’s training has defined how I approach my work. Through his insight and guidance we continue to engage in creative work that can stand on its own with full thought out and realized character.
