Student Life – West Hollywood


Congratulations to Christine Uhebe who has been nominated as “Best Supporting Actress” at the London International Film Festival for her role as Monica in Early Summer, a film about a suicidal girl who starts a journey with a lonely boy who is in search of his mother. Together they discover that life always moves on no matter how difficult the present is.
Christine has completed the Two-Year Conservatory at The Lee Strasberg Institute in West Hollywood, and is continuing her training.

“I consider the Lee Strasberg Institute my home in US. It is the place where I feel completely safe to keep working on my craft everyday. Exploring myself and my characters; trying to reach beyond my own limits day after day, always guided by brilliant teachers. I’m really blessed to have the opportunity to be a Strasberg student!”- Christine Uhebe

Anne De Salvo takes a brief sabbatical from her teaching duties at The Lee Strasberg Theatre & Film Institute to bring her one woman show “Mamma Roma” to the Cherry Lane Theatre in New York City this April.

“Mamma Roma” chronicles the life of earthy and unkempt Italian actress, Anna Magnani. Lacking the bombshell good lucks of her contemporaries (Bridget Bardot, Sophia Loren and Gina Lollobridgida), Anna Magnani rocketed to international celebrity with her exceptional rawness, depth and honesty.

Anne De Salvo has been teaching Method Acting and Scene Study at the Institute since 2003. She trained in The Method at Circle in the Square in New York and soon became a notable Broadway & Off-Broadway performer, originating roles in many landmark plays. She starred with Lee Strasberg himself in the Emmy Award-winning “The Last Tenant.” Anne has numerous other TV and film credits and is a lifetime member of the Actors Studio.
