'Ken taught us to be dangerous, to abandon any sense of failure and to take risks ?? that's where to find creativity. A lesson we can never stop learning.' Orlando Bloom
'The classes with Ken at Guildhall, I consider to be the most important part of the acting training. They are exercises in patience, unpredictability and encouraging students to make utter fools of themselves ?? vital for any actor embarking on a life in the profession.' Michelle Dockery
'Ken's classes were some of the most interesting that I was lucky enough to attend at drama school. He opened the mind to what acting could be.' Ewan McGregor
