Summary Mel Gibson, Judy Davis, Steve Bisley and 12 others all graduated from acting school, NIDA, in 1977. What was their experience and where are they now? As a class member clicks through the fictitious Acting Class of 1977 website, we gain insights into the shared experiences of this stand out year, the industry they entered and an actor-training method that stripped them of their defences to make them emotionally accessible. “I like the fact that they almost kicked me out. I managed to pull my fat out of the fire. Just I was a squeaker. I only just got back in”. - Mel Gibson, Acting Class of 1977. “They said Youre a hopeless year youre one of the worst years weve ever had. Pretty ironic" - Linda Newton, Acting Class of 1977. “George Miller arrived and he gave me the script of Mad Max and Mel Gibson the script of Mad Max and asked me if Id look at the role of Jim the Goose the motor cycle cop”. - Steve Bisley, Acting Class of 1977. “They stripped us bare emotionally in order to make us better actors. They didnt tell us thats what they were doing, so I just thought I was going mad!" - Debra Lawrance, Acting Class of 1977.
