Loyola Theatre in the News: Professor Ann Mahoney, Olivia on The Walking Dead, Shares Her New Book on Fox8 and News With a Twist

Ann Mahoney, professor of both Voice and Movement II and Acting for the Camera at Loyola University New Orleans, recently released her book, Slap!!! Courage for the On-Camera Actor. It is a book that strives to provide young professionals with all the tools they need to succeed in the ever-changing film industry. 

In November, Ann spoke with Fox8 News about her journey from stage to film and television. Slap!!! details this journey and provides helpful anecdotes for those looking to make the same transition. That interview can be viewed here: 



Wild Bill Wood of WGNO’s News With a Twist stopped in on Mahoney’s Voice and Movement II class around the same time. He interviewed both her and students, asking about how the class and Loyola help prepare students for film. Students spoke on the importance of Suzuki training in allowing them to cultivate complete control over their bodies for performance. That feature can be seen here:
