Coach: Daniel Baumander
Native to Toronto, Daniel was was born with an innate sense of timing for the theatre. Luckily for his parents, actor Louisa Martin & director Lewis Baumander, he was born on a Monday (“Dark” day for the theatre, the actors day off). He learned at an early age what it means to be an actor. He watched his mother rehearse and perform in countless plays during the first 15 years of his life, and sat with his father as he directed plays from ‘The Three Musketeers’ to ‘Macbeth’ to ‘Hamlet’. He has been absorbing the way Lewis works his entire life & applies this not only to his own career as an actor, but also towards his work with other actors.
Daniel made his stage debut, at the age of seven performing the role of Little McDuff at the Leah Posluns Theatre. Throughout his life he has had the pleasure to perform in many theatrical productions. Some favorites include starring as Vladimir in Waiting For Godot and as The Poet in La Ronde at Buddies and Bad Times.
He recently wrapped filming the short film The Brave Soldier in which he played the lead and will be starring in an independent full length feature in the new year (title currently confidential TBA).
In addition to witnessing first hand Lewis’s work & being directed by Lewis in the Theatre , Daniel has also studied under Lewis for many years. Daniel has been taking a variety of classes with Lewis over the past 11 years.
For the last three years he has been using his experience and knowledge to run self-tape auditions at Casting Central. He is a sought after asset by many professionals, as they request his services to ensure they produce their best performance. He has worked with many veterans actors as well as beginners on all manner of scripts & sides. Daniel has watched some of the best actors this country has to offer execute their craft. He looks forward to sharing his experience in class.
Lewis has a unique way in which he sees the actor & their performance (as many of you who have worked with him will attest too). Daniel has inherited this unique process and language, and over time has learned how to execute it through working with his father.
