Actor Testimonials

April Billingsley – Last Vegas, Resurrection, The Walking Dead

april“Not only does Erik have this amazing ability to see the potential in every performer and to bring it out in a supportive and loving way. But, he always gives you his best and expects the best out of you. That’s what makes him a great teacher. I don’t believe that you can get a better quality self tape in Atlanta than you can with Erik Lingvall. That’s just the truth. When it comes to the big auditions, he’s always my first choice. He has a wonderful eye and he works with you to get your best work on tape. I booked my top of show role recurring role on Resurrection from a tape I did with him.”

Allison Vaccaro (parent of Owen) – Daddy’s Home,  A House With A Clock in its Walls

“We have been coming to Catapult since the beginning.  Owen has trained and taped with numerous coaches in the Catapult family. They are committed to quality tapes and know how to get the very best out of their actors.  They excel in every area…from the workshops to the coaching to the tapings, you will always get top notch.  We consider them part of our team and a huge reason for Owen’s success.”


 ADJUA FERGUSON (parent of Priah) –  Stranger Things

“Since working with Julia for under one year, my daughter has shown exponential growth and makes bolder choices in her craft. Priah has always performed with passion, but paired with Julia’s coaching, her work is consistent and undeniable. Julia also shows compassion and sincere interest with every child and encourages them to be the best version of themselves. We are truly appreciative of her wisdom and all she has poured into our child, personally and professionally.”

 Drew Van Acker – Pretty Little Liars, Training Day, Devious Maids


“Finding Erik was a blessing. He truly gets the best out of you as an actor and I think the quality of his work shows that.”


Allison Hunter (parent of Elizabeth) – The Jersey Boys, Nashville, MTV’s Finding Carter

liz“After meeting Erik, Elizabeth signed with two agents and a manager in LA, and has been working consistently on commercials, tv, print and film. Elizabeth absolutely would not be where she is without Erik and his acting camp. For me, the most exciting thing has been to see Elizabeth’s confidence grow in leaps and bounds since meeting Erik. The shy little girl who was afraid to sing karaoke is now fearless. That carries over into auditions, which has led to her booking jobs! However, it’s not just great for acting – it will benefit her in every area of her life, whether she continues acting as an adult or not. Erik’s positive energy and outlook on life is contagious, and I’m so thankful that he helped Elizabeth learn that dedication and hard work can also be a lot of FUN!”

Craig Gross (parent of Nolan) – NOAH, Terminator: Gensiys

noles“Erik KNOWS the people in this business and can see this industry from a kids/ parents point of view. He is not only part of your team, but can help you build that team. If you have a chance to work with Erik for a week, a weekend or several weekends, do it. It is worth the investment. You’re not going to find someone else who is as passionate about helping actors succeed.”
