"Justin Lehmann is one of the most dedicated and passionate people that I have encountered in the 50 years that I’ve been teaching at The Neighborhood Playhouse, Rutgers University and the William Esper Studio. In that time, I have taught some of the most successful professionals in our field. Every time I taught him in class, I realized I had just spent time with an actor and artist of great depth. I love Justin’s work as well as anyone would who has worked with him." — William Esper, NYC 20/03/2017
About Justin Lehmann
William Esper & Justin Lehmann
New York, 2016
Justin first graduated from the National Theatre Drama School in 1998, from where he went on to have the life-changing experience of studying under master teacher William Esper in New York City. Following this experience he was awarded a scholarship to train in the Full Time Program at 16th Street Actors Studio where he graduated in 2010.
Justin returned to New York City to continue his studies at Esper Studio at which time he also had the privilege of working with, and being mentored by Elizabeth Kemp. It was during this period he discovered a deep affinity for teaching the craft of acting, and became a 'core' teacher of 16th Street Actors Studio.
In 2016, Justin was offered a scholarship at Esper Studio and for a third time returned to New York to further extend and deepen his knowledge.
Justin has appeared in numerous primetime Australian TV series and has toured nationally with Melbourne Theatre Company.
